QUEZON CITY. Philippines—The third placer of The Voice Kids 2014, the Filipino-German Juan Karlos Labajo, now part of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic roster of talents and MCA Records artists recently launched its self-titled debut album—‘JK’ at Jollibee on E. Rodriguez Avenue, New Manila, on Tuesday, August 4.
The 13-year-old native from Cebu City was the protégé of Coach Bamboo during the competition and is dubbed as a ball of energy that possesses the kind of charm accompanied with his smooth voice, with and full of positivity as reflected in his playful poses in the album cover. It contains six songs such as ‘This Gravity’, ‘Maybe Love’, ‘Para Sa ‘Yo’, ‘This Song is For You’, ‘Summer Time Love’, and ‘’Di Ka Man Lang Nagpaalam’ (which he dedicates to his late mother).
Since the lad is growing fast to be an endearing teenager, he is but like any normal guy who has crushes and he is very vocal about his admiration to Sofia Andres, who is three years senior to him. Despite that, it is clear to him that whatever it is happening to him right now, he feels ‘blessed’ and has no time for love just yet. He would rather focus on his career.
‘JK’ is now out in CDs at Astroplus and Astrovision outlets nationwide and through digital; downloads via Spinnr and iTunes, respectively. It can also be streamed on Spinnr, Apple Music, VEVO, Spotify, Deezer, Guvera and Rdio.
The album launch was presented in cooperation with Hawk Backpack and Jollibee.
