He can sing, dance, and act. Jeremy Glinoga is out here showing that he’s one to watch out for and these performances prove that.
Throughout the storied history of Philippine talent competition shows, many artists and personalities have come and gone. But only a few have truly broken past their competition days to establish themselves as a force in the industry. And some are on the verge of doing just that. This is true for singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor Jeremy Glinoga.
Originally hailing from Los Angeles, California, the young artist first appeared on our screens when he auditioned for The Voice Teens Philippines in 2017. He impressed judges Sharon Cuneta and Sarah Geronimo enough to make them turn their chairs, where he ultimately joined Team Sharon. From then on, he charmed many viewers, making it all the way to the finals. And while he didn’t win, it did help him jumpstart his career, and by the looks of it, it truly is taking form as of late.
THE COME UP OF JEREMY GLINOGA
A regular performer on ASAP Natin ‘To, Jeremy is regarded as a rising star. He’s been active in the industry for a few years now, but the spotlight on him shines brighter. Recently, he dropped his debut EP, maybe forever, a body of work about the stages of love. “Once you listen to the songs together, you’ll realize we all go through the same emotions. All these songs are about hope and wondering whether what you did or happened was right. Love is a journey without a final destination,” he said of the EP.
The EP, which four of its tracks were written, composed, and co-produced by Jeremy himself, was met with praise for Jeremy’s soulful and emotional voice as well as songs that felt like a throwback to the early 2000s OPM ballads. And to top it all off, he is also set to make his acting debut this year with the musical series Lyric and Beat. In the show, he’ll star alongside other new-gen stars like Andrea Brillantes, Seth Fedelin, Darren Espanto, AC Bonifacio, Angela Ken, and Sheena Belarmino.
As this all-rounder continues to flourish, here are seven performances that you need to check out to understand the hype behind this young artist.
HIS COVER OF ISTORYA BY THE JUANS
Everything about this cover feels correct. From his voice, the arrangement, to the emotion, it was all on-point. Jeremy definitely gave justice to this song, but at the same time gave it his own take and spin.
DUET OF I’LL NEVER LOVE AGAIN WITH JANINE TENOSO
I’ll Never Love Again served as one of the emotional highlights of A Star Is Born, and Jeremy gave what needed to be given. Together with Janine Tenoso, the two bodied this cover with their voices that blended well together. Starting off slow, the two ramped up to give a satisfying emotional climax by the song’s peak.
PERFORMING DAHIL MAHAL NA MAHAL AT THE VOICE TEENS FINALE
When Jeremy joined Team Sharon on The Voice Teens Philippines, the mega star revealed that she wanted him on her team because he was a singer who delivered on emotions. He may not be known for being a belter, but Jeremy really digs deep to deliver the song, it’s feeling, and message. This performance during the finale of The Voice Teens is prime proof of that. Taking on this Roselle Nava classic, Jeremy embodied the song to give a performance that hit all in the right spots.
THIS MESMERIZING RENDITION OF SANA MAULIT MULI BY REGINE VELASQUEZ
Done during the battle rounds of his season, this duet was arguably one of the best in the show’s history. And what’s most impressive about it all is that it was sung by two singers who weren’t that good in Tagalog at the time. Heather and Jeremy both rose to the occasion in this performance, which is why both ended up moving on to the next round. Lea Salonga even expressed that her breath was taken away.
HIS DUET OF PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH MY HEART WITH ZEPHANIE
Jeremy Glinoga and Zephanie remain a superior duet couple. Both came from singing competition shows and both are regarded as some of the best singers of the new generation. So, when they combine forces for a performance, you know it’s going to be good. And while they had many great performances together, this duet of Please Be Careful With My Heart is truly next level. From the voices, emotion, and chemistry, they did that.
HIS TAKE ON TOO GOOD AT GOODBYES BY SAM SMITH
Covering Sam Smith can either lead to really great or questionable results. For Jeremy, this performance was definitely of the former than the latter. Scenic views of the city combined with Jeremy’s beautiful voice made for an A-tier cover.
DANCE NUMBER WITH AC BONIFACIO
Not only is Jeremy a talented singer-songwriter, but he can dance, too. If you catch him on ASAP or his TikTok account, you can see him bust a move every know and then. Take this dance prod with AC Bonifacio for example. Not only was he able to keep up AC, but gave us sharp and slick dance moves in the process. Definitely looking forward to what they have to offer in Lyric and Beat.
