KZ Tandingan returns on Singer 2018 stage for the chance to advance in the show’s grand finals. Called the “Breakout Round,” the Filipino singer who is competing against other eliminated contestants performed Freddie Aguilar’s “Anak.”
The song is KZ’s personal choice for this round because according to her, the Chinese public is very familiar with the Mandarin version of “Anak.”
“Kasi aside from it’s one of the most beautiful OPM ever written, sobrang sikat din kasi siya sa China so kung kakantahin ko man siya lalo nilang maiintindihan kasi alam nila ang kanta. And alam mo ‘yun nakaka-proud na may OPM song na sobrang sikat sa ibang bansa na kung hindi nila trinanslate, hindi nila maiintindihan di ba? Kumbaga nagkaroon ng connection ang ibang lahi sa kanta ng mga Pinoy,” she said.
