DARREN LYNDON ESPANTO. That is his real name. He was born and raised in Canada but his parents are both from the Philippines. This cute and talented kiddo is very good in speaking Tagalog although he lived in Calgary for many years. This is because they were trained to speak Tagalog when they are at home. He has a sibling named LYNELLE ANN ESPANTO. He won 1st Runner-up when he joined THE NEXT STAR last 2012. Then he decided to find his luck here in the Philippines. He joined THE VOICE KIDS, PHILIPPINES last year and he garnered 1st Runner up again. Eventhough he did not get the highest award, he is still the grand champion in our hearts!
