The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
  • The world first caught a glimpse of Darren as a 10-year old virtuoso who won the 2011 Pinoy Singing Sensation competition in Canada. That was just anindication of greater things to come. In 2012, he contested in the hit Canadian reality television show, 'The Next Star', where he rubbed shoulders with some of the best in the showbiz. Darren went on to create history as the youngest finalist in the history of the show to be included in the Top 6. In the course of his stint in the show, he also performed an original single titled 'Gotta Give A Little Extra', which was well-received.
  • In 2014, Darren returned to his home turf to contest in the inaugural season of the Philippine reality television show, 'The Voice Kids'. He proved his potential as the ultimate show-stopper at the competition that at one point, the famous Philippine singer Lea Salonga went on record to express her admiration for him in these words, "To every person Darren idolized, this is a warning to all of you: this kid will outshine you someday."
  • Though he lost to LycaGairanod in the final round, Darren managed to repeat what he did in Canada through 'The Next Star' - establish himself as a shining star in the firmament of teen pop music in both these countries.
What Makes Darren So Special
  • Darren's USP is his versatility. He is not just a gifted singer but also a musician who can play the piano, saxophone and even the drums. In other words, he has mastered rhythm and beat in a way that many of his peers couldn't even dream of. It is this all-round artistry that sets him apart from the rest and earns him the nickname, 'The Total Performer.'
  • To his fans across the east and the west, he is a rare combination of a talent that is both exotic and home-grown at once. He can switch effortlessly between genres, may it be Western Pop or Easter OPM. And this is precisely the reason for his popularity and marketability in both Asia and North America.
