Billy Crawford

International Singer & Dancer Billy Crawford is now back in the Philippines and in Showtime. After few months in France finishing his new album; he has returned with a slimmer figure & following a healthy lifestyle.

Billy who was originally around 200 lbs. is now somewhere in 150lbs. Recently, he guested on Kris Tv and told everyone that it wasn’t easy losing weight and being fit. He went to the gym, twice a day, tried triathlon, swimming, biking, running and dieting; no carbs more on fruits & juices for more than 4 months already.

Most likely by October of this year, he will go back in Paris to promote his album. But before that; He is set to host the 4th season of Pilipinas Got Talent with Luis Manzano. He will also join fellow HERO ambassadors Iya Villania, Nikki Gil, Kris Lawrence, 6 Cycle and, Sheila Valderama and 9ID Band in a benefit concert for orphans of military men on Sunday, Sept. 9 at Naga Coliseum.

Last Thursday, I visited her and Nikki when they played on Kapamilya Deal or No Deal. Billy played for his chosen charity; Virlanie Foundation.

It is a non-government organization (NGO) reaching out to street children. It cares for kids in need of special protection: abandoned, abused, exploited, neglected, orphaned, & poor. They reach out to children and families living in the streets and in the poorest areas of Metro Manila, such as for example those who used to live on the municipal garbage dump in Payatas, Quezon City. The Foundation also has a program in Pampanga, north of Manila, where it supports children and families victim of toxic waste.

There is more that you need to know about Virlanie Foundation and What they do.. You can visit their website here and Be a Sponsor, Be a Donor, Be a staff, Be a volunteer.

Towards the end part of the game; One decided 'No Deal', the other one 'Deal'. Watch out for this stressful & thrilling game this Saturday or next Saturday at 6pm.

Here are some photos of Billy I took; September 6, 2012. I’ll share more stories & updates about him in the next few weeks.
