Rabat – Following his initial charming performance on January 21, Morocco’s Hamza Labyad has made it to the final round of The Voice Kids competition after mesmerizing the jury with his impressive vocals on Saturday.
The young amateur signer attracted a great deal of attention from both the audience and the judges after signing a nostalgic song titled “Wahashtini” from famed Egyptian singer Souad Mohamed.
Kazem El Saher, a renowned Iraqi singer, did not hesitate to choose Hamza for the final. Each of the three jury members selected two competitors who will then compete in the finals for the show’s second season title.
El Saher also chose Maria Kahtan from Yemen after she performed “Magadir,” a song by Saudi Musician Talal Maddah.
This was not the first time that Hamza charmed the jury with his impressive vocal talent. During the competition’s blind audition stage, the rising star performed one of the most difficult songs of legendary Syrian singer Sabah Fakhri.
As Labeid started singing “Malek Ya Helwa,” the judges all pressed their buzzers immediately. The talented young amateur singer had previously mesmerized the judges during his January 21st performance. Hamza, managed to outperform his two rivals during the cross-battle and delivered the best performance of the popular song from Egyptian singer and composer Sayed Mekawy, “Matfoutnish Ana Wahdi”.
The jury includes Iraqi singer Kazem El Saher, Lebanese diva Nancy Ajram, and Egyptian Tamer Hosni.
