Darren Espanto and Juan Karlos Labajo are now Jollibee Endorsers

The Voice Kids Runners-up Darren Espanto and Juan Karlos Labajo are now the newest endorsers of JOLLIBEE, the leading food chain in the country. Together with the grand champion Lyca and 4th placer Darlene, they wowed the press when they sang Jollibee's newest jingle during the presscon held at Jollibee Greenhills earlier. 

On the presscon, The Voice KIDS promoted their first album and invited everyone to their upcoming concert this December 6 at the PICC Plenary Hall. Darren Espanto's Studio album will be released on that day too while Lyca's and Juan Karlos' will come out in the next few months. 

I'm writing another article detailing about the fever these kids bring to the younger audience. That will be on a separate article so watch out for that! For now, Enjoy these short video clips and photos I took during the event.
