Eleven year old Iraila passed away in Valencia on Tuesday following her four year struggle with cancer and her death has touched the hearts of millions of people across Spain.
This young lady was no ordinary 11 year old, something she demonstrated when appearing as a contestant on the Spanish version of The Voice (Kids) TV talent show.
Iraila provided one of the most emotional moments of the series when she was chosen to continue to the next stage. The youngster broke down in tears when all three of the show’s celebrity coaches – Spanish singers Malú, David Bisbal and Rosario Flores – turned round to pick her for their teams.
She decided to go with pop star, 31 year old Malú, who offered her condolences on Twitter on hearing of Iraila’s passing.
The competition was filmed last July when she was still healthy Telecinco had been due to broadcast her appearance in the show’s second-round “battle phase” on Thursday. At this stage the decision on whether to show the recording has still not been taken as producers Mediaset España and Boomerang TV are traveling to Valencia to speak to the young girl’s parents about their wishes.
Coach David Bisbal also expressed his sadness. “I am very moved and speechless over the death of Iraila,” the pop star wrote on Twitter. “Courage and strength to her family.”
Meanwhile Iralia’s Facebook page has been inundated by people offering their condolences.
For the period of her illness Iraila was receiving support from the Association Aspanion to which the parents have asked that, rather than sending floral tributes, financial donations be made to help those who are still suffering.
