Roque Belino (age 20) sings a cover of “Ika’y Mahal Pa Rin” by Rockstar on Idol Philippines 2019 Auditions. He also sang a snippet of “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, upon the request of Idol Philippines Judge James Reid.
The judges commented that Roque’s voice is quite unique with James Reid describing it as country-rock. Moira Dela Torre liked the timbre of Roque Belino’s voice while Regine Velasquez said liked the husky, cracking voice of Belino and said it has character. Vice Ganda said he was not much impressed with Roque Belino’s voice saying it was just OK.
Except for Vice Ganda, Roque Belino got Yes votes from the judges. But the 3 Yes votes were enough for him to get a Golden Ticket to Idol City, the next level of Idol Philippines 2019.
