Cebu City, Philippines – Three of the best Original Pilipino Music (OPM) stars in the country will serenade Cebuanos at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino on February 2, Saturday. 

In a message sent to Cebu Daily News Digital, “D Total Performer” Darren Espanto confirmed that he will be performing with “Fearless Diva” Jona and “Asia’s Nightingale” Lani Misalucha for ”The Aces” concert. 

“We chose Cebu po as our first leg ng ‘The Aces’ because we want to treat the Cebuanos for a pre-valentine show and at the same time, [a show] for the Chinese community in Cebu who will be celebrating the Chinese New Year din po,” Espanto said.

“The Aces” is directed by Marvin Caldito and produced by CCC Productions. After Cebu, CCC Productions will bring “The Aces” at SMX Convention Center in Davao City on March 2 and Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on March 30. 

Espanto rose to fame when he finished second place during the first season of “The Voice Kids Philippines” in 2014.

He may be the youngest of these three OPM stars but the 17-year old singer and actor has established his name in the show business industry.
