MANILA -- Thirteen-year-old Edray Teodoro clinched a spot in the Sing Offs of "The Voice Kids," completing Kamp Kawayan's top six contestants.

In the Sunday episode of the ABS-CBN talent show, Teodoro was pitted against her GFFs (girl friends for life) Natsumi Saito and Grazz Enriquez.

Coach Bamboo chose Kelly Clarkson's "Breakaway" for the group.

After the Battle rounds, Coach Sarah Geronimo commended Saito for her powerful voice and for being brave enough to improvise on some parts of the song, but eventually chose Teodoro, praising her for her wonderful voice.

Coach Lea Salonga, on the other hand, praised Teodoro for her voice's texture, also picking her for the Sing Offs.

Coach Bamboo Manalac picked Teodoro, noting how she "flew" when she sang the chorus of the song.

"Edray, when you hit that higher register sa chorus mo, you just flew," he said.
