Even though Fasika Ayallew did not get The Voice Australia title, her supporters believe there are more chances for her hitting it big in Australia or overseas because of the Law student’s vocal power, charm and stage presence.

Earlier, Fasika’s coach, superstar Kelly Rowland expressed the 19-year-old Australian singer of Ethiopian-Filipino descent is destined for greatness. “I feel her in my gut. I genuinely think she’s special. She gets me excited about music,” Rowland told The Daily Telegraph. Rowland, in fact, has been calling record producers in America vouching for Fasika’s vocal powers. But win or lose, Fasika said she wanted to pursue her dream to go international.

Twenty-year old Judah Kelly won the title yet it triggered a deluge of comments on social media from fans expressing their disappointment. Some posted on Twitter: “Fasika should have won, best voice and stage presence. She is a star!”; “Australia, you have robbed many people over the years on singing shows, but Fasika missing out is the biggest travesty ever!”; “This really was me waiting for Sonia to have her Steve Harvey moment and call Fasika’s name, and “So…no offence to everyone else but Fasika definitely had the best voice.” The other story about the result carried this headline: “She was robbed’: Voice viewers rage as Fasika falls short”.

Fasika was more humble in accepting defeat when she congratulated Judah on her Instagram account.
