Jacob Benedicto, a contestant in ABS-CBN’s The Voice Philippines, briefly became one of the trending topics on Twitter Sunday night. Benedicto, a 21-year-old communication arts student from De La Salle University may have failed to advance in the competition, but he nevertheless earned the admiration of Pinoy netizens.
