Soquite competed in the first season of The Voice Teens. In her Blind Audition, she auditioned with the song "Anak ng Pasig" by Smokey Mountain, turning all four chairs with Soquite choosing Sarah Geronimo as her coach. In the Battle Round, she was paired with Chloe Redondo with the song "Sana'y Maghintay ng Walang Hanggan" being assigned to the duo. She won her battle, advancing her to the Knockouts where she won singing "Stand Up For Love" by Destiny's Child.
