These underrated local cover artists are worth listening to

May 6, 2021 0 comments



If there’s one thing Filipinos love to do, it’s to sing. Off-key or not, it’s a favorite pastime of Filipinos, whether in the bathroom or in some random karaoke spot in the middle of a street. Many Filipinos have taken it to the next level by posting their cover songs on YouTube. Some have even made careers out of them, like Daryl Ong (if you haven’t seen his cover of Mariah Carey’s One Sweet Day with other talented artists, you’re missing out) and even Arnel Pineda, whose cover songs he performed with his former band, The Zoo, was seen by Journey online.
