Today, I want to share an inspiring audition performance. Everytime I hear or watch someone so determined to pursue his or her dreams, I get goosebumps.
Here is Kier King, 24 years old from Sultan Kudarat Province in Mindanao. He says he had been trying his best to become a professional singer since he was 12 years old. His parents are very supportive of him. In his younger days, his parents left their remote homeland in faraway Mindanao to live in the big city of Manila, enduring so much hardship along the way just to make sure Kier will have a chance to show off his singing talent in different auditions and competitions.
When all their savings had been spent, Kier’s parents were forced to go back to their province in the far south and he was left in Manila to continue his undying pursuit of a career in singing.
Not everything went in vain. In 2007, Kier won the second season of Popstar Kids and in 2014, he represented Mindanao as a singing finalist in Bet ng Bayan.
Now he is given another chance to reach the star. Check out his audition in Idol Philippines as he sings You are the Reason by Calum Scott.
