Talent agency strengthens talent pool

#TeamCahilig of music and film producer and public relations entrepreneur Chris Cahilig is fast becoming the hub of the hottest artists for corporate events, festivals, and mall and campus shows today.

Each performer or group offers the total package and brings something unique to the table, so to speak. Swoon-worthy all, the incredibly talented young men aren’t only certified crowd-drawers; they likewise enjoy a formidable following on social media.

 

OPM pop heartthrobs 1:43

The most popular and successful Filipino boy band today, multi-awarded 1:43 (pronounced as “one forty-three”): Anjo Resurreccion, Gold Aquino, Yheen Valero and Yuki Sakamoto

The most popular and successful Filipino boy band today, multi-awarded 1:43 (pronounced as “one forty-three”) has seamlessly morphed from teenyboppers to serious musical idols.

The hunky heartthrobs of 1:43—Anjo Resurreccion, Gold Aquino, Yheen Valero and Yuki Sakamoto—are the voices behind the iconic song “Sa Isang Sulyap Mo,” popularized by PBB Teens and Juan dela Cruz in ABS-CBN. The YouTube videos of the song have collectively garnered over 70 million views so far and the song is continuously being used as soundtrack for various TV shows, including Eat Bulaga and It’s Showtime. 

Likewise, 1:43’s family-oriented song “Ang Saya-Saya” became the official song of Ismol Family on GMA 7, while “Hayop sa Ganda” has a cult following among the LGBT audience.

Fresh from performing in a series of shows in Singapore for BellaVita Land Corp., 1:43 is scheduled to fly to the United Arab Emirates, Italy, and Spain for more shows. The boy band also continues to be a staple in corporate events of big clients like Coca-Cola, Great Taste, Talk ‘N Text, Levi’s, and BellaVita in various parts of the archipelago.

Finally, the members of 1:43 have jumpstarted their acting careers—they’ll all be launched in the horror-comedy flick Echorsis with John Lapus, Kean Cipriano, and Alex Medina. Meanwhile, Gold is starring in the independent film Water Lemon, an entry to the upcoming Quezon City International Film Festival by director Lem Lorca.

 

JBK: music with style

JBK: music with style. Joshua Bulot, Bryan del Rosario, and Kim Lawrenz Ordonio.

Exceptionally talented Filipino boy band JBK composed of Joshua Bulot, Bryan del Rosario, and Kim Lawrenz Ordonio became popular on Facebook for the a cappella cover videos of OPM, Indonesian, and Malaysian songs.

Usually done in a condominium’s fire exit—and constantly getting into trouble with the security guards for it—JBK gained the moniker #FireExitBoys.

JBK was discovered after the group won the McJim Classic Leather’s “Dreams Get Real” Season 1 talent search. It has since launched a string of successful singles including the radio hits “Anong Meron Ka” and the viral song “Damang-Dama,” which has so far gained over 1.2 million views on Facebook. “Damang-Dama” later on became the official single of Camella Homes. 

This month, the boy band will release their self-titled album JBK featuring five original songs.
