According to Mitoy, after winning the biggest singing competition via ABS-CBN last year, it has paved the way for him to many opportunities, including his dream of having his own album with a major label such as MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines).
“This is actually a 30-year-in-the-making album,” he confessed.
In this album, he didn’t just showcase his wide vocal range, but this also commenced his career as songwriter. He wrote ‘Ikaw Hanggang Wakas’ and ‘Magulang’.
“It feels great that through this album, finally I am not just able to sing the songs I like, but it also gave me the chance to write my songs.”
During the event, part of his repertoire of songs were—‘Hahabol-habol’, the witty and reminder song called ‘Magulang’, his hit carrier single written by Vehnee Saturno—‘Pinaikot-ikot’, ‘Minahal Kita’, ‘Pangakong Tapat’, his moving rendition of Florante’s ‘Handog’, as well as ‘Ikaw Hanggang Wakas’. He also did the Air Supply medley that included—‘Every World in the World’, ‘I Can Wait Forever’, and ‘Here I am’.
One of the highlights of his album is his duet with his world-class coach back in ‘The Voice’ 2013—the one and only—Ms. Lea Salonga.
Apart from his album, Mitoy and his band—‘Draybers’ do have a regular gig at Resorts World Manila’s Bar 360 every Monday at 9:45pm. He will also be performing with the ‘Draybers’ at the Music Museum on September 20, 8pm,
