The Voice Kids Philippines 2014 Runner-Up to a Double Platinum Recording Artist

“The Total Performer”

He may be the youngest in terms of age, but 17-year-old Darren is more than capable of holding his own in the company of veteran singers like the other Aces. Darren started singing at the tender age of two and rose to fame in the Philippines after placing second in season one of The Voice Kids in 2014. His first album “Darren” debuted at No. 1 and has since been certified Double Platinum; his second album “Be With Me” also went to No. 1 and is now certified Platinum. Darren’s current single “Poison” is currently climbing the charts, and his third studio album will be released soon.


Pinoy Pop Superstar 2005 Grand Winner to a Platinum Recording Artist

“The Philippines’ Fearless Diva”

Shortly after winning season one of GMA-7’s Pinoy Pop Superstar, Jona—who at the time was still going by her real name Jonalyn Viray—became an in-demand performer and recording artist. Jona’s first studio album On My Own turned Gold, and her self-titled second album yielded a hit single in “Help Me Get Over.” It went on to win Song of the Year at the 2014 PMPC Star Awards for Music. A year later, she made headlines when she transferred to the Kapamilya network and changed her stage name. She has released an album under ABS-CBN’s in-house record label Star Music, which was eventually certified Platinum. She has also filled concert venues here and abroad, both as a solo performer and as part of a group.

Asia’s Nightingale, The Siren of the Strip

“Asia’s Nightingale”

​The diva known as Asia’s Nightingale hardly needs an introduction. Lani’s career spans decades and includes an impressive stint performing in Las Vegas, where she became known as the Siren of the Strip. During her time there, Lani performed with the Society of Seven at Bally’s and the Flamingo, making her the first Asian to headline a main showroom on the Las Vegas Strip. Lani’s career in the Philippines is nothing to sneeze at either, as all of her albums have been certified Gold or Platinum.
