I can’t believe two years just flew by so fast. One minute you’re watching TV and seeing all these talented youngsters belt it out on The Voice Kids, the next minute you’re interviewing them and they don’t sound like kids anymore. JK Labajo was on the first season of the Voice Kids under Team Bamboo. Alth0ugh he didn’t win the competition, doors kept opening left and right for the young singer and actor.

JK dropped by The Afternoon Cruise to perform songs from his album under MCA Music. During his stint on The Voice Kids, he usually sang old songs–Frank Sinatra, love ballads and jazz standards. You’d be thinking for someone his age, he’d appreciate more of Justin Timberlake, Greyson Chance or Nathan Sykes but he grew up loving the classics. With the release of his album, JK embraces more of his generation’s music, making fans swoon with his covers an original tracks.
Check out the videos from his Stage 1 performance below:

Tippy and I have known each other since 2009 when we were both students for a musical theatre class. The bubbly, talented teenager was easy to warm up to because she always had this welcoming smile. Even if she’s been performing for so long, she never made the other students feel like she was above everyone else the class. She was friendly, bungisngis and very sweet. 😀

Finally! Callalily returned to the Mellow947 studios for a live performance set. They were actually scheduled a month ago–they were out of town that day, were supposed to fly back in the morning but their flight got delayed so they couldn’t make it to the 1pm call time at Mellow.

I’ve had the band on the show thrice. I can’t believe it’s been a decade since they formed the group. They’re actually coming out with a 10th year anniversary album as a gift for you fans who have supported them all these years! While you wait, they’ve released an upbeat single titled “Now I’m Dancing” which perfectly encapsulates how happy and thankful they are.

They performed the new single and some Callalily favorites for their Stage 1 set. Video below:
