DARREN said he is physically and mentally prepared for ‘Home Run.’

Darren Espanto can’t see himself doing anything other than music.

The 20-year-old Filipino-Canadian singer and The Voice Kids alumnus said music has been a lifelong dream and that he still has goals to pursue in the industry.

DARREN personally chose the tracks included in the setlist.

At a recent video conference, Darren said: “You can’t take passion out of me. I can’t see myself not doing it (music). I want to stay driven and creative.

I want to keep on creating music.” He added that he’s thankful that he has family, friends and fans to inspire and motivate him.

Darren is all fired up for his first major virtual concert, “Home Run,” scheduled on 19 June at 8 p.m. via, iWantTFC and TFC IPTV.

“Home Run” is directed by Paolo Valenciano, with TV direction by Jon Moll and musical direction by Soc Mina.

It was originally scheduled on 30 and 31 May, but Darren’s management was forced to postpone it after he was exposed to a member of the production who tested positive for Covid-19.

Darren said he personally chose the songs in the concert setlist: “The songs are also related to my journey through the years. Some of them I haven’t sung before. I’m excited to give it a new flavor.”

“Home Run” will have two dates: 19 June and a rerun on 20 June at 10 a.m. VIP tickets are available on, iWantTFC and TFC IPTV.
