Ezequiel, team Montaner

After seeing a compilation with scenes of Ezequiel in his hometown, his coach, Ricardo Montaner, told him that in the founding of his family, they also help children with certain disabilities through music. “It is no coincidence that we are here together to try to make your dream come true”, the Argentine-Venezuelan singer-songwriter pointed out to Pedraza.
Nicolas, team Lali

Regarding the fact that the public had chosen Nicolás Olmedo as a finalist, Ricardo Montaner made a reflection on social networks. “Santi (Borda) from the Lali team was the participant that was expected on Twitter to reach the final, but the reality is the public vote. And the public chose Nicolás.”
Francisco, team Sole
Who will represent Soledad Pastorutti’s team in Sunday’s final will be Francisco Benitez. His presentation on last night’s special was very emotional. Marley recalled that the young man suffers from a stuttering problem since he was six years old and that music was his lifeline.
Francisco admitted that in adolescence, his slurred speech had led to depression. “But the music was there to save me”, he reflected, the young man who makes a living working in an electricity company.
Lali recalled then that she had been greatly impacted when Francisco Benítez, when telling for the first time on the program what he had suffered during adolescence, said the phrase: “I didn’t want to be here anymore”.
“The mind is something very heavy,” Mau intervened. How strong it is that a person like Francisco, who has so much skill in his voice, thought that what he is experiencing now was never going to happen to him. ”
“There are many people that you impacted with your testimony. There are more people than you imagine that the same thing is happening as you,” Ricky told the participant. Then, his coach, Soledad Pastorutti, pointed out: “Let it be clear that when we chose Francisco, with his back turned (the auditions were blind), we did not know his life story. He is here for his talent“.
Luz Gaggi, team Mau and Ricky
Mau and Ricky’s team will have Light Gaggi as a representative in the final of The Argentine Voice. Much was said about the life story of the young woman who dreamed of being a dancer, but whom fate prevented her from doing so, and ended up dedicating herself to singing.

“I took dance classes, I wanted to be a dancer like my mother. But when I was 10 years old, I fell in the bathroom and stayed in a wheelchair for a long time. Then, I began to study singing,” said Luz. Optimistic, he added: “But everything went well, because now I’m here”.
