Team Lea's Mitoy Yonting is finally announced as the first-ever “The Voice of the Philippines” grand champion after battling with a lot of aspiring  singers. It was indeed a grueling battle because they all exerted their best effort.

Mitoy beat top 2 finalist Klarisse de Guzman of Team Sarah during the grand finals last Sunday, September 29, at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Pasay City.

Mitoy Yonting, of Team Lea, received 57.65% of the votes against Team Sarah's Klarisse de Guzman as the two artists faced off for a final showdown after garnering the highest percentage of text and online votes plus the iTunes and truetone downloads.

Before the poll for the top two artists opened, their individual scores were reset back to zero. In the end, the artist who got the higher percentage of public votes was named the winner of “The Voice of the Philippines.”

The Voice Grand Finale featured performances from various stars. Klarisse performed Elton John’s “Your Song” with coach Sarah Geronimo and Robert Sena, while Myk performed “Morning Rose” with coach Bamboo. The rock star coach-judge also danced waltz with Linn Oeymo.

Janice, coach and folksinger Lolita Carbon brought the house down with their jaw-dropping performance of “Himig ng Pag-ibig” and “The Time (Dirty Bit).” Mitoy, coach Lea Salonga and Vice Ganda added humor to their fantastic performance of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”

The top four finalists also performed with former Westlife member Shane Filan, singing the boyband’s hits “Uptown Girl” and “Fool Again” while Allan Pineda and Jed Madela opened the show with the top 16 finalists. Among the celebrities who watched the show were Gary Valenciano, John Lloyd Cruz, Angelica Panganiban, Charlene Gonzalez, Angeline Quinto, Iza Calzado, Ruffa Gutierrez, Pooh, Tim Yap, Miriam Quiambao, and Phoemela Barranda.

He even earned a slot at a noontime show as a comedian-singer, but sadly, his career did not reach a full throttle.

To raise a family, Mitoy went to Japan and other countries to work as a band singer. Later on, he came home and went to play his for his kababayans. Today, Mitoy is with the band “The Draybers” where he plays regularly at Resort’s World Manila. Because of his exposure to different and various races, Mitoy and his band learned to speak little and sing foreign songs/languages.Mitoy joined TVOP to relieve youthful dreams, make a career and maybe win an awesome trophy.
