Though the main competition already ended, the show has gained so much popularity, that decided to do a "Tawag Ng Tanghalan Kids" where kids from 7-13 years old are allowed and reach the top of the mountain. The first episode of the show aired last March 13 and is still going strong as of this moment.
That being said a netizen named Ramos Ivan has posted a video of a young boy who traveled from Bicol to Manila just to join in the said singing competition. Unfortunately, due to lack of budget the kid wasn't able to audition.
According to the uploader, the kid already ran out of budget to audition so he sing a song for them to gather some funds with his own rendition of the hit song "Till I Met You". The boy was identified as Zildian James A. Parma and is now making rounds on social media sites.
The Facebook post went viral and has now garnered over 123,110 shares Facebook as of this writing.
