The Voice Kids Philippines viewers and coaches were blown away after Angelico 'Echo' Claridad took to the stage to perform a cover of the Bee Gees' 'Too Much Heaven.'

The eight-year-old contestant – who was competing on the blind audition rounds - wowed everyone with his beautiful rendition of the much-loved song.

Performing the notoriously difficult falsetto song pitch-perfect, the young singer was quickly fast-tracked to the next round by the overwhelmed judges who saw a star in the making.

Recorded by the Brothers Gibb in 1979, the song was the band's contribution to the Music for UNICEF project, which raised money for world hunger programs.

The Bee Gees themselves multi-tracked their own voices for the song - on the chorus, you can apparently hear 27 vocal tracks — most of which are just Barry Gibb — to create nine layers of three-part harmony.
