Michael "Mitoy" Yonting (born January 3, 1970) is a Filipino band singer from Pangasinan / Sampaloc, Manila who is the first winner of The Voice of the Philippines.
Mitoy discovered his passion for music at a young age. Like most artists, he actively pursued a career in the music industry but luck gave him half-a-wish. The young Mitoy back then had joined various televised talent competition shows that lead to various television appearances. He even earned a slot at a noontime show as a comedian-singer, but sadly, his career did not reach a full steam.
To raise a family, Mitoy went to Japan and other countries to work as a band singer. Later on, he came home and went to play his for his fellow countrymen. Today, Mitoy is with the band The Draybers where he plays regularly at Resorts World Manila. Because of his exposure to different and various races, Mitoy and his band learned to speak little and sing foreign songs/languages, including Japanese.
Mitoy joined the competition to mollify youthful dreams, make a career, and maybe win an awesome trophy.
