Maria Giedie Ocang Laroco professionally known as Maria Laroco (born January 30, 2001) is an Philippines singer, songwriter, musician, model actress and dancer. She is best known who for traveling all the way to London to audition for The X Factor (UK) in 2018. She was sent home near to the semifinals, and will return to try again in 2019. She also appeared on The Voice (TV series) kids version in 2018.

Early life and education[edit]

Maria Laroco, a young freckled and dark haired 17-year-old student from the Philippines. Before her stint on this year's X-Factor, the rising star's claim to fame in her native land is being a contestant in the Philippines’ version of The Voice Kids in 2014.

After meeting former X Factor winner Sam Bailey as a fan, Maria said she now wants to emulate her success on the show. Speaking ahead of her audition where she wowed with her rendition of Purple Rain, Maria said: "A lot of people say I sound like Mariah Carey because I have quite a high range.!" "I am only 16 but it’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was really little." "My nana’s dad was in a band and she always says she wished she’d done the same because she’s an amazing singer."

She started to love singing when she was three. She was only three when she first learned a song that she listened to everyday from DVDs her dad loved to buy her. Her first performance and competition was when she was five. The first competition she joined was one of the unforgettable moments of her life. She sang Listen (Beyoncé song) by one of her idols Beyoncé and luckily she won second place. Because of that first successful try, she joined a lot of contests to train and help herself more for her to someday reach her dream...to be a superstar. She was seven when she first joined a band and an orchestra.

Career[edit]

Laroco first auditioned for The Voice (TV series) kids version in 2018. She also appeared on The X Factor until being sent home before the semifinals. 17 year-old Maria Laroco flew all the way from the Philippines to wow the X Factor judges on Saturday night, performing Prince’s Purple Rain to a standing ovation from the audience. The singer told Simon Cowell that it was her ‘dream’ to be “an international superstar – I want to be big!” before launching into a rousing rendition of the Prince (musician) classic. A sneak peak of her performance promised big things for the singer, with the crowd leaping to her feet and Robbie Williams shaking his head in disbelief. Laroco’s ambitions have history. Her major claim to fame in her native land is being a contestant in the Philippines’ version of The Voice Kids (Philippine TV series) in 2014, where she performed as a 13 year-old under the name Giedie Laroco (her full name is Maria Giedie Ocang Laroco). She impressed the show with her version of Jennifer Rush’s The Power of Love (below), but was eventually eliminated in a sing-off battle in the eleventh episode of the series.[1]

Beyond The Voice Kids (Philippine TV series), Laroco was featured on the YouTube channel of an independent record label in the Philippines called Universal Records, performing a cover of Disney classic Beauty and the Beast and Hindi Ko Kaya, the theme song for a 2015 South Korean drama called All About My Mum. All of which suggests that Laroco could be a formidable force in the competition – after all, at only 17 years-old, she has experience.

Maria Laroco signed to American record label, Odic Records in May 2019. Her untitled debut album is set to be released early fall 2019.
