Yet another Costa Rican has classified in “La Voz de México.” Ilse McEstavillo, also known as Ilse McCarthy, is a 24-year-old who has lived between Costa Rica and Mexico since childhood. She is a student at the School of Communication Sciences of the UCR.
Her audition was aired on April 23. She sang “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes. Her voice, as well as her guitar skills, impressed the judges, such as Yahir, Belinda, Lupillo Rivera and Ricardo Montaner.
She chose Yahir as her coach. She will be seen on the program that airs on TV Azteca on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We’ll also see Ticos Gerson Solís and Steven Sibaja who qualified previously.
Ilse recalls loving music since she was 6 years old and participated in contests in NovaCentro. There was a hard time when she didn’t sing but that changed when she was invited, as a 15-year-old, to a small stage and she found herself addicted to the energy of the applause.
