Honolulu native Cheesa Laureta bested her rival Angie Johnson during the first battle rounds on NBC's rising reality singing competition program "The Voice."

Cheesa Laureta and Angie Johnson sing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” on The Voice Battle Round for Team Cee Lo Green.

Cheesa Laureta is actually 100% pinay. Her father Joseph Laureta, is of Ilocano, Tagalog, and Pangasinan heritage, while her mother, Martiniana Laureta, is from Cebu. She and her whole family is living in Hawaii.
