If you were lucky enough to be born with it, then you have got to flaunt it. Meet the really young (15-year-old) and talented now-Singaporean singer, Miguel Antonio.
At first, Antonio’s family did not know of his talent until he came in tops at a singing competition organised by his primary school in 2010. After which, a family friend posted a YouTube video of him singing on Facebook and as they say it, the rest was history.
His name may be familiar to some as he had participated and won the cross-continental talent search show ‘Born To Sing’ in 2011. The show is by renowned music producer and songwriter, David Foster’s search for the next musical sensation. Later Antonio was hand-picked by Foster following his win, to perform at the “David Foster & Friends’ concert in Singapore.
