14-year-old Sufyan Sousan from Hock Van Holland qualified in Sing Off Friday evening to the final of The Voice Kids 2021.
Two weeks ago, the young singer worked hard during the fights, when he sang the song Jealous of the singer Labrinth with two other nominees. Sufyan V. ad.
Sufyan only discovered he could sing during the farewell music rehearsal in the eighth group. “I really wanted to have a certain role, but there was a solo role in it. I didn’t want to do that at first, but I thought the role was very fun, so I tried it.” Then he received a lot of praise and encouragement, even for joining The Voice Kids.
Once the time came, he found it easy to choose the test number. His sister suggested the song “I Love Me” by Harry Jakers. “I didn’t know what I wanted to sing for a long time, but then I saw Tabitha’s version of one of the best singers and my sister thought the song fits well with my voice.” The auditions went very well, Sunny Hans immediately turned and rapper Ali B. “When I saw that at least someone had already played, I thought: Lucky, I worked, I can quietly end the song.” Ilse DeLange and Snelle also turned around, but Sofiane wanted Sanne Hans as coach. “I was thinking about her beforehand because she gave me the idea that she was a great coach.”
Sofiane is in his third year of pre-university education at ISW Gasthuislaan in s-Gravenzande, where his classmates are amazed by the news of his participation in the talent program. “Someone saw me in one of the commercials suddenly passing my audition and yelled that in the middle of the class, everyone heard that,” he says. He would like to continue in the music world. “It’s a tough scene, but I really want to do it.”
