Darren Espanto - Be With Me (4)

Time flies so fast that this young man has been achieving countless accomplishments in his career at such a young age since breaking out in “The Voice of the Philippines” Kids edition. He’s growing up so fast that even though it kind of makes me feel old, it gives me this feeling of inspiration whenever I hear his music and transitions.

I think it’s a normal feeling to be proud though that he doesn’t stop chasing his dreams with a high mainstream relevance morphing into a teen pop star sensation.

At the blog con, he shared some honest conversations — he has written songs for his sophomore album “Be With Me,” promoting a sure hit concert “D Total Experience,” answering controversial issues and enumerating the journey as an artist with his unstoppable Darrenatics fans remaining by his side.
