Proud to be DARRENatic

IMG_3683June 1,2014 – kakauwi ko lang ng bahay 7:30 pm tandang tanda ko pa I watched the Voice Kids kasi nawiwili ako ang gagaling ng mga bata kumanta then when I saw Darren Espanto the last performer nung gabi na yun nung una wala lang pero when I heard his voice naku po sabi ko sa isip isip ko “Grabe ang galing!!” pero pagkatapos nun di ko pa siya idol naging idol ko siya June 7 2014 because nakita ko sa youtube na nakasali na syang the Next Star sikat na siya sa Canada. Tapos yun naging idol ko na siya. Sa school mga classmates ko nahawa sakin and natuwa ako because Tito Don noticed me already nakakatuwa yung mga sinabi nya sakin nung nakakachat ko siya even Tita Lucy Marinas she said na “sayo ako super naaliw love u Aaron” super saya ko kasi ang bait sakin ng auntie ni Darren.

Well, eto na dito nagsimula ang lahat when he posted at iG sabi nya na may mall tour sila sa Venice Piazza sa July 12 2014 tinanong ko agad yung mga churchmates ko kung alam nila yun but sabi nila di daw nila alam. Nalungkot ako akala ko di kami makakapnta but niyaya ko tlga sila. Nangapa kami dun tanong tanong kung saan ang Venice Piazza. Nawalan ako ng hope dahil sabi ng iba kong churhmates ang daming sinasakyan wala na silang pera pero nung nakadating na kaming Venice Piazza worth it naman pati sila nahawa sakin idol nadin nila si Darren sabi nila sakin “Ano bayan Aaron nahawa na kami sayo “, this is it I saw him and wow talagang wow when I saw him he is very kind and humble person binigyan ko siya ng letter at bracelet tuwang tuwa siya dun sa letter ndi nya binitawan nung umakyat siya ng stage hawak nya padin nakakatuwa kasi ang bait nya tapos kapag tinatawag namin siya ng mga churchmates ko para magpapicture lapit agad siya, tapos sabi ko makikita ko ulit si Darren by faith and yun sunod sunod na blessings ang dumating nakasama akong Semis at Finals.Di ako makapaniwala “Am I dreaming?” Paulit ulit kong sinasabi sa sarili ko.
And my most memorable experience with him ay yung nameet and greet naming Darrenatics siya, Sobrang saya dahil dun pa talaga sa hotel kung san sila naka check in. Nakakatuwa dahil di lang siya yung nakausap ko pati his little sister, father , mother and his grandmother. Sobrang saya kasi may selfie kami and may video pa sobrang saya indiscribable talaga at pinakamasaya din sakin is when he followed me on iG sobrang saya by the way tinago ko pa yung balat ng burger ng Mcdo na nilibre nila samin sobrang bait ni Darren at ng family nya super.I just wanna say thank you sa Lord because kung di dahil sa knya wala lahat ng to.
I’m Aaron Dale Colina Villegas proud to be a Darrenatic and this is my story.

God bless everyone always stay humble like our idol Darren Espanto.

    I’m a mother of an 18 years old daughter and living here in New York City… Hindi ko inakala na sa edad ko na Ito at hahanga sa isang singer of this century! First time ko na nakita si Darren Espanto sa Blind audition niya through Facebook… First time pa lang I notice na talaga ang kakaibang talent ng bata… The way he sings, the way he moves and grooves to the songs is natural lang… Para sa akin wala siya sa competition ng VOICE KIDS kundi he is there just performing na Gaya ng mga batikan na singers…. Sinubaybayan ko ang mga sumunod niya na mga performances hanggang nasa TOP 4 FINALIST na… I’m sure of it na DARREN WILL COME OUT AS THE WINNER – and really saddened when he became the runner up!!! I knew it from heart na talagang deserved niya ang TITLE….

    Lalo akong na inspired ng makita ko na ang dami ng tagahanga ni Darren not only sa Pilipinas but all over the world! I know it also by heart that DARREN will soar so high and malayo ang mararating ng kanyang career…para sa akin nasa kanya na ang Lahat …. A GREAT SINGER,A TOTAL PERFORMER, A PHENOMENAL HUMAN BEING, A LOVING AND HUMBLE CHILD… DARREN’S RESPECTS FOR OTHERS REALLY STANDS OUT…. Ang pagpapalaki ng kanyang magulang sa kanya is really outstanding… Never siya sumasabat pag di siya tinatanong, and always says his po!!!! Super admirable na bata and I’m so happy na marami ang nagmamahal sa kanya and of course isa na Ako doon…. He is liked a son that I never had!!! ❤️❤️❤️

    Let’s always stand and support Darren’s career my fellow DARRENATICS – alam ko na malayo ang mararating ng batang Ito and I’m so proud na naging part siya ng aking buhay!!! Let’s pray that God will always protects and bless Darren always and so does his Family…. God bless to all of us DARRENATICS !!!

    I am in the US and working as a financial analyst. I became a fan of Darren Espanto when I saw him performing in the Voice Kids. Just what Sarah Midha said, he is a performer than a contestant in the show. Darren is a born singer with a very humble character. He will go a long way locally and internationally.

    I am not wondering why a lot of people like him because he sings with a heart considering he is only 13 yrs old aside from the fact that he is very talented not only as a singer but also as a dancer. He can sing Tagalog and English ballad and fast songs very well which makes him stand out among all the contestants in the Voice Kids or even other performers we have in the Philippines.

    I think the reason why Darren has a lot of fans is because the fans (I myself included) believe in his talents and he should really be the winner in the competition. I know a lot of Darren fans were disappointed when he only became 2nd placer despite of his very applauded performances in the Voice Kids. But, I think with all his talents and good character, he will become an international star and will be a pride of our country. He just have to be versatile by writing songs so that he can own them.

    Good luck to Darren and to all Darrenatics around the world. Let us all pray for his success and good health always.

    I’m already a “MOM”. 13 years ago when I became a fan of one international boyband (not just a fan but as in super fan). After then, no at all na. Until DARREN came.

    I can still remember nung napanood namin ng hubby ko si Darren sa blind audition ng TVK. My husband told me “OH! Magaling sya” (my hubby knows how to sing kasi). Then I replied, “Ok!”. After that, napanood ulit namin sya sa Battle Rounds. Then my hubby told me, “Believe me, yung galing sa Canada nung Blind Auditon, He will make it. Sya ang bet ko.” Sabi ko naman, “Ok!”, actually madame akong bet sa TVK that time and hindi pa ko ganun ka interested kay DARREN. But as we continue watching those TVK shows , that’s the time that Darren catched my attention. Then I told to myself, “WOW! he’s great nga”. Then, tiwag ko yung sister ko sabi ko, “Ui, look. Galing nya and Gwapo sya!”, sabi ng sister ko, “I know! , matagal ko na sya nakita and sya ang bet ko!” So, naisip ko, ako lang pala ang nahuli. hehehe And then, nag tuloy tuloy na nga sya, hangang naging interested na ko na maging “DARREnatics” and naging super fan na ko ni DARREN.

    When Darren entered into the “FINALS”, nandun yung eagerness ko na manuod. I called the Resorts World and asked them kung pano ko makakabili ng ticket for that show and how. But, sadly, sa ABS – CBN lang daw. So, sabi ko sa sarili ko i need to find a way kasi gusto ko tlga sya mapanuod. Luckily, I received a called then sabi sakin “Inaanak, Nakuhanan na kita ng ticket para sa “The Voice Kids”, I was so happy that time. It was the Saturday show, so I have my Materal Class that time, but I still find a way, nag cut talaga ako ng last class ko para lang makapunta. Hehehe But despite of that, hearing Darren’s performances live and seeing him in person is worth it. Then, sunod sunod na sya, biglaan ako nag – half day sa work when I got a news from my sister that she have a tickets daw para sa TVK Concert. Then, everytime may TV apperance sya or guestings, kahit nasa office ako, I find way/s para lang mapanuod ko sya agad agad. Pag may mall tour/s sya or show/s and I know na possible ko sya mapuntahan and quite near naman sa locations ko then free yung sched ko, I did. hehehe

    I am hoping na one day makapag take ako ng picture with him. :)

    Anyway, I know that Darren is just starting his way to stardom/fame palang and malayo pa ang mararating nya as time passes by. That kiddo will SOAR HIGHER with the talents and attitudes that he had. I believe that all the sacrifices that Darren and his family did is worth it and will be pay off someday.

    Proud to be DARRENatics. It’s my choice and will to support this kiddo ‘coz deserving sya.. Hope DARREN will not change. If he will, hope it’s for the better.

    GODBLESS to all DARRENatics !

    The First time I heard Darren during the blind Audition He captured my Attention. During that time I also like lyca because of her story. But when the Battle round he really proves his World
    Class Performance and I see him the male version of Charice P. And Sarah G. And after that He is my favorite among the 4 TVK CONTESTANT. He really touches my Heart of his songs.

  13. Shimmer Rhythm says:

    This is my first time to follow an artist and to actually wake up early to see him on TV.Listening to his songs over and over again makes me happy to do the work I have to for the day. Even his recorded short messages on videos saying thanks and sorry to his supporters, and inviting us to his shows is very SWEET and APPRECIATIVE of him. I am actually very glad that there’s a group called “DARRENatics” that is very supportive and creative.
    To the Core Team of DARRENatics, You are AMAZING!!!! I wish I could be given a chance to support Darren as widely as you are doing right now.
    With all my heart I know that DARREN ESPANTO will SOAR HIGH with his talents and personality together with his hardworking fans and wonderful family that serve as the wind beneath his wings.

  14. Myra Krisselle garing says:

    Darren will always be AWESOME. CUTE, TALENTED, HUMBLE, BASTA. HALOS LAHAT NG MAGAGANDA, NASA KANYA. But nobody’s perfect, he still has his flaws. But we, Darrenatics, see through those physical attributes and look at the great guy deep inside him. I’m a proud Darrrenatic, as long as I live.

    Nung nanunuod ako ng thevoice nkita ko c darren at siya na ung sususnod kakanta. Nang na yun ay parang tumibok ung puso ko at naging crush ko sya at nang kumanta na sya d ko na mapigilan ang aking ngiti. Ang GALING nya at naging idol ko na sya .Lagi ko na syang sinusubaybayan. Nung semi finals na …umiiyak ako kasi nakita ko si darren na naiyak dahil di pa sya natatawag. Tapos nung natawag na sya sobrang saya ko at naiyak lalo ! Nagtatalo pa nga kami ng mama ko eh dahil maka lyca sya at ako ay MAKA DARREN.Pagkatapos ng thevoicekids ay nagkaroon sila ng sunod sunod na mall showing at mga guesting. Nung nagkaroon sila darren ng mall show sa lipa..sabi ko ang lapit na nun sa amin pero di pa rin ako makakapunta kasi sasakay pa ng barko tas alam ko naman na di ako papayagan ni mama. Taga oriental mindoro kasi ako..Nakakalungkot kasi andami na nilang mall shows at di ako nakakapunta ..Gustong gusto ko nang makita si Darren And sana pumunta naman dito sa Oriental Mindoro..

    I LOVE YOU DARREN !! :)))

  27. Mai Lajara says:

    Hi … First of all I would like to thank you guys for doing a great job on having fan corner on Darren’s Fan page …. Just like the others who already posted their unforgetable experience on how they admired Big D ..,, I am also one of them..,, I am mother with one kid ( a daughter) ..,, this is my first time na naging active ako to join a fan page and nakakatuwa lang kasi sa edad ko sobrang napahanga ako ni Darren… Honestly di ako nanood ng TVK blind auditions that time when it was air in TV … I only watched thru you tube TVK Germany pa yung series ng blinds and the singoffs po…. And yung kay Darren na blinds niya sa you tube ko lang din napanood first time ko siya nakita na kumanta tapos napaisip ako parang kilala ko sia at tama ako siyang yung Darren who auditioned and joined the reality show sa Canada The Next Star which he is at the 2nd Place po…. Wow andito na siya sa Pilipinas he is well knowned in Canada as Big D…. I am excited when he picked Sarah G as his coach kasi same nila more pop and ballad and from a humble beginning rin po …. Pagsali sa mga contest to prove that he got the talent and the voice… Na talagang pinatunayan niya sa lahat what I really admired to Darren is that he may not be born in the Philippines but yung ugaling Batang Pilipino in embraced niya yung pagiging magalang to his parents Thank you on upbringing this kid into good and wellmannered kid ang pagiging humble na cguro di niya alam kung gaano siya kagaling thats why walang pagaalinlangan minahal at tinanggap siya ng mga Pinoy not only of having an exceptional extraordinary talent but yung ugaling meron siya …. Darren’ s journey were starting sana yung support po natin maging solid walang ending as in Forever …. My family ( Eric – husband, Erich-daughter and Me) we already registered sa Official Fanpage ni Darren and we are indeed DARRENatics!!!!!!!

    I am reading all the comments here at fan’s corner. There is an overwhelming similarities of what people are saying. We became so addicted to Darren where it is now a lifestyle to read and enjoy all Darren’s performances, shows, greetings, interviews, etc. Darren has a charm to capture all our hearts and minds. He will become a big star. I am proud to be a Darrenatics. This is my first time to be so excited about a performer considering that I am in mid- 40s.

    Kudos to Darren and Darrenatics all over the world. Guys, when sending your comments, please write where you are so that we have an idea that Darrenatics is really worldwide.

    I would like to share to everyone how i chatted with kuya darren in fb before he was advice to deactivate his fb and tweeter a couple of weeks back. One time he was upset and posted on his fb about a guy who was posing to be darren. I told him to just leave that guy alone and not get upset. So he thank me for that and cheered him up. He appoligized ti that poser in his fb. Then he was asking if he could part of the teleserye Hawak Kamay. I told him not to be doing that and rather concentrate on his singing career cause it will be a big burden for him doing taping, tv shows, concerts, mall shows, cd signing and the like. He posted on his wall on somethings untill Star Magic (Abs Cbn) brought an announcement that he cannot anymore answering thngs on his fb and tweeter. Their was also a time he told me that he was upset answering repeated questions redarding the tweetle thing. He tag me one time in his picture and put a title below sayung. “Mga taong nagpapaligaya sakin..di kami matitinag kelan man..” to that effect.. thank you for all that kuya. I will cherish them forever. Enjoy out there!

    I enjoy reading all the comments here at the fan’s corner. Darren is indeed very much loved by everybody. I’m a proud DARRENatic! Alam ko na malayo ang mararating ng batang to. Saludo po ako sa pagpapalaki sa kanya ng mga magulang niya at sa pagiging mabait na anak sa kanila. Keep on honoring your parents Darren and I know God will surely bless you with the things you deserve and much more you can think of. Stay humble as you are. God bless and we the DARRENatics will always be here to support you all the way.

  47. Rhye says:

    Hi there. I am a music lover and admire most of the singers but I never followed nor watch videos of those singers. Then I watched Darren Espanto on the Voice kids. The first time I heard his voice singing his audition piece “Domino” I told myself right away that he’s going to win the competition. He really caught my attention and it made me came closer to the television. It was my first time to hear such very angelic and very talented young aspiring singer. The first time I saw him and heard his voice on tv I knew it that he would gonna make it big. There’s a spark on his eyes that tells that he was naturally born to be a famous star. Now, I admit that this young talented boy named Darren Espanto is my idol…not only for his singing skills but also for his good attitude. I always watch his videos and listen to his voice over and over again which I never did to any singers. I am so excited for his upcoming album and I would definitely grab a copy of it. Darren, I wish you good luck and good health. I hope I there will be a chance to see and meet you personally. I am your number 1 fan and that won’t change. God bless you always and just keep your feet on the ground. I know that I will see you soon and I am so excited for that moment :)

    isa po akong OFW at wala po TFC sa room ko. sa TheVoicefb lang po ako updated pinapanuod ko yung mga videos sa timeline nila. hindi pa po ako masyado humanga kay Darren noong blind audition nya,pero nung nagsalita sya nang Tagalog sabi ko “wow ha pinanganak at lumaki sa Canada pero magaling mag tagalog at magaling gumamit ng Po at Opo. mas humanga pa nga ako kay Jk noong blind audition nya. at first JK is my bet pero nag bago iyon noong narinig ko si Darren kumanta during sing-off. sabi ko “WOW!!!!!!” at mas lalo ako humanga at nagging fan nya noong kumanta sya ng “NGAYON” ang galling nya magtagalog. imagine a Kid raise and grew in Canada can sing and interpret that song. sa sobrang hanga ko I share his performance sa timeline ko with the caption “this is the real voice,kung hindi ka pa mananalo ay iwan ko lang sa mga pinoy” some of my fb friends did not favored Darren,pinagtangol ko naman si Darren.hangang nagkagulo na kami. dumating iyong announcement syempre Sunday Morning ditto sa akin,noong gabi pa lang hindi ako masyadong nakatulog. pagkagising ko binuksan ko ang computer log -in sa FB(nakiki update sa ABS-CBN timeline) oh wala pa my last performance pa. naligo muna ako pagbalik ko ang laki ng CONGRATULATION LYCA,THE FIRST VOICE KID GRAND CHAMPTION. hay,,,,,para akong binagsakan ng bobong ng bahay,hinang-hina talaga ako. I cried&angry, feeling ko kasi para akong ninakawan ng trophy na para naman talaga sa akin. angry dahil hindi binigay ng mga tao doon sa mas karapatdapat. pati mga kaibigan ko na favor doon s nanalo inaway ko sa subrang inis ko.
    But now seeing this young talented Kid na unti-unti na nya natutupad ang pangarap nya, happy narin ako. I admired this kid hindi lang dahil sa maganda ang boses nya kundi higit sa lahat iyong pag uugali nya. credit to his parent..wala man ako sa Pinas,one thing for sure pag my solo album kana Darren magpapabili ako.

    Teaser palang ng audition ni Darren sa The Voice I got curious na. Sabi ko aabangan ko ang blind audition ng batang ito.Dumating ang June 1, 2014. Eventhough I am very busy during that time Because I need to do final touches sa mga school forms ko dahil pasukan na still di ko muna siya ginawa at tinutukan ko talaga ang blind audition niya. Grabe ng kumanta na siya goosebumps I asked my self ilang taon na ba ang batang ito at ang galing nyang kumanta at mag perform. I admired him so much when I discovered that he was base on Canada still ang galing niya sa wikang Filipino doon pa lang humanga na ako talaga sa kanya. Sabi ko sana lahat ng students ko kagaya ni Darren full of humility kahit na magaling. Every salang ni Darren sa stage ng The Voice wala akong pinapalampas hanggang dumating ang semi finals na kung saan todo todo ang ginawa kong pag boto kay darren. Pagdating ng Finals I got a teary eye when I heard his rendition of Ngayo grabe binuksan nya ang puso ko . I felt the emotion that he wanted to convey. I thought with the performance that he showcased during the finals night he will be The Grand Champion. But I was wrong. Honestly speaking I really got disappointed with the result but I kept to my mind Siguro may better plan si God para kay Darren, Ngayon unti unti na niyang natutupad ang kanyang mga pangarap. Salamat Darren dahil maraming buhay ang nabago dahil sa yo. Let me end this statement by the saying It’s just a matter of being consistent. In our life consistency toward what is right is the name of the game. Yan c Darren Lyndon Gonzales Espanto consistent sa pagiging mabuting huwaran at inspirasyon sa mga kabataan. Way up high kiddo reach for your dreams and we are always here to support and defend you.

Grabe sobrang saya and sobrang dream come true kasi I got to take a selfie with him and I got my album signed (his first solo album). Totoo po na sobrang bait niya at sobrang humble. ang bait niya sa mga fans niya sobra… kahit pagod na sya he made sure na mapirmahan niya lahat ng album na binili ng mga fans nya at magpapicture sa bawat isa sa kanila (including me). Pati si mommy Nel niya, sobrang bait talaga. Sana wag po tayo magsawa magsupport kay Darren guys! GodBless Darrenatics!

    A proud darrenatic here from Davao City . During his concert tour in Davao last October, I and my friends really went just to see him performing and be amazed. It’s a fulfillment to all of us to witness his greatness and see him in person. I hope that all of us will be granted the chance to be with him even for a while. I’m wishing that the Admin of the DARRENatics will speak in behalf of us and ask our dear Total Performer to visit the provinces, especially those rarely been or had never been visited by Darren.
    More powers to our idol!
    Mabuhay co-darrenatics! Mabuhay Darren!
    Good Day ahead….
