A Pinay contestant was invited to compete at the “I Can See Your Voice” competition in Korea. She wowed celebrity judges, Block B and Kim Sang-hyuk, in her solo of “The Prayer”.

Sephy Francisco, a call center agent, made her debut in the Philippine version of “I Can See Your Voice” with celebrity guest, Jessa Zaragoza.

Francisco starred in the 9th Episode of Season 1 that aired on October 14, 2017 and went home with ₱10,000.

When asked by Luis Manzano on where she gets her inspiration, she says, “Sa pamilya ko po. Gusto ko po talaga i-showcase ang talent ko sa buong mundo…Member din ako sa isang youth ministry until college. Doon ko nalaman o na ilantad ang aking pagiging gay.”

Francisco, however, traveled to South Korea to compete in the Korean version of the show after she failed to make it to the final round.

It’s really been my dream to be here in Korea and I experienced a lot. I experienced the snow, the very first time I experienced it [here]. [It’s] the very first time I got a passport, very first time I got visa so a lot of first time here in Korea,” Sephy told the judges.

Francisco made it on the first episode of Season 5, but failed to make it to the final round.

She added, “Because of my voice I was able to earn money for my family. I really want to pursue my dreams to be a singer and inspire others.
