Darren Espanto, born in Calgary, Canada, first took the local spotlight when he belted out the high notes of Jessie J’s “Domino” as an audition piece for The Voice Kids Philippines Season 1 earlier in 2014. Since he was declared as the competition’s second placer, he has become unstoppable in his journey to stardom.
At a young age, Darren has already proved his name is worth a spot in the local music industry with his exceptional talent and showmanship in his every performance. The young artist already has an album, well-attended solo concerts and numerous awards – including the 46th GMMSF Box-Office Entertainment Awards’ Most Promising Male Singer/Performer tilt –under his belt.
The singer is also considered as one of the most phenomenal social media personalities in the country. Thanks to his army of “Darrenatics,” news and topics related to him are constant occupants of Twitter’s trends list.
During the first Wish 107.5 Music Awards, Darren was named Wish Young Artist of the Year.
