Elha, 11, who helps her family earn extra income by selling banana cue, beat out fellow team Bamboo contestant Sassa Dagdag, and team Lea singers Reynan Dal-Anay and Esang de Torres for the title.
Elha took the top spot with a whopping 42.16% of the votes. Reynan came in second, with 31.64% of the votes, Esang in 3rd place with 18.16% of the votes, and Sassa with 8.04% of the votes.
Coach Bamboo proudly stood by Elha, introducing her before she took to the stage for a celebratory final round, singing "Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin."
"I'm speechless. I'm just very happy for Elha," said Bamboo. "Ladies and gentlemen, my grand champion [on] The Voice [Kids] – Elha!" he said.
This is a first Voice Kids victory for Bamboo; his season 1 bet, JK Labajo, came in third.
Earlier, after Elha's stirring power ballad, the 3rd and final round in the finals, Bamboo spoke about how far Elha has come in the competition.
"Pilipinas, please, magtiwala kayo sa narinig niyo, sa nakita niyo, sa naramdaman mo. She is a very special singer. Undeniable, undeniable.
(Philippines, please, trust in what you heard, what you saw, what you felt.)
"This show is called The Voice, and who deserves to win the show, and I see a voice in front of me who deserves this. She is the voice in my book," Bamboo said, asking the country to vote for Elha.
A music instrument package, shopping spree, cash prize, recording contract, new car, and house and lot are among the prizes for this season's grand champion.
