Thirteen-year-old Anson Chua has been performing as an opening act on several Filipino events, the latest at the Piolo and Inigo Pascual concert, in Edmonton, hoping to hone further his singing skills and develop more confidence along the way.
Anson, son of Elvie and Andy Chua, started performing at the age of 10 and has since been taking voice lessons and loves to play the piano during his breaks.
“Actually, Lydia Jimenez heard him sing three years ago at the Palabok House, and was encouraged to keep on singing,” said Elvie. Anson first performed at the concert of Alden Richard, an event organized by Palabok Promotions.
Anson also received an invitation from World FM 101.7 Himig Pinoy’s Rolan Latorre to grace the radio program and sing for their listeners.
“Gusto din naming e feature ang mga upcoming singers na Pilipino. Yan din naman ang ginagawa namin for a number of years na din,” said Latorre.
