Young JV collaborates with Vice Ganda for "PasaDiyos"

I first saw Young JV in one of the episode of the series in Honesto and I must say I was impressed by the acting skills of this newbie.  But it was only last week that I discovered that he is also a singer, dancer and composer-- and a good one at that.

The talented Young JV whose first two albums (“Ready Or Not” and “Doin’ It Big”) earned platinum and gold record awards recently launched his third album "YJV" bannered by his single "Ale".  The launch was held at  Timog last  July 21. The song is a hooky upbeat pop he co-wrote with Philpop winner Thyro Alfaro, with a fun music that is simply fast-garnering viewers on music channels and social media sites. Young JV is co-managed by Star Magic and Cornerstone.

The five-track package distributed by Star Music is one lean-but-mean album, containing just five songs -- but each strong enough to be single material. Two other numbers feature popular female voices in KZ Tandingan (“Mismo Baby”) and Karylle (“Hurts So Bad”). He also co-penned the tracks with topnotch songwriters Jungee Marcelo and Marcus Davis, Jr.

But here’s more to be thrilled about. The freshly out album produced by Doin’ It Big Prod is actually set for repackaging after he did something spectacularly noteworthy. That is, collaborate with quintessential Pinoy act Vice Ganda for a recording of a new song entitled “PasaDiyos” which will definitely grace the special edition release.

Loaded with talents as he is also seriously into acting and basketball, JV feels the need to include the said song in line with the nature of his third CD. He related, “Exciting, that’s how I feel about my third album. You’ll find a fusion of EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and R&B.”

He describes that combination as “an explosion of heavy, melodic, and uplifting synths that can only come from my heart.”

Young JV, whose first two albums (“Ready Or Not” and “Doin’ It Big”) earned platinum and gold record awards, respectively, is not new to collaborating with big stars. He previously did one called “Ngiti” with Gary Valenciano, along with other album track duets featuring Myrtle and Yeng Constantino. Last year he co-interpreted with Duncan Ramos the Philpop entry “Hang Out Lang.” If given a chance, he would like to have a collaboration with Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo.

On stage live, other artists find him fulfilling to work with. In fact, he became a member of a group dubbed A-Pop who at one point regularly performed on ABS-CBN’s ASAP. Anytime soon he will appear on the same show to do a number with KZ backed by an orchestra.

At the moment he is busy doing mall and campus tour to promote “YJV.” He will be at DLSAU (July 23), NU (July 31) and AMAES (August 11). He has two more mall shows this month: SM Angono (July 25) and SM Sta. Mesa (July 26).

On the acting front, JV, youngest son of retired Colonel Red Kapunan of EDSA 1 fame, is currently focused on his bit as Gregg in the highly watched ABS-CBN “Honesto” TV series. Last year he joined the cast of the latest “Dyesebel” TV series as David; further back he competently acted on a couple of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episodes, and on the series “Annaliza,” “Princess and I,” and on “Budoy” – a performance which caught the attention of the public as he shone bright as back-up to the title role of Gerald Anderson.

As if being an accomplished singer-actor is not enough, JV is also a basketball star in his own right, usually excelling during celebrity challenges. He won MVP during the 2013 Star Magic Games while netizens got delighted viewing his friendly skill show-off against collegiate star-defender Kiefer Ravena during a streetball game.

More importantly he never forgets to give back for all the blessings coming his way. He founded the Lahing Bayani Foundation, while also serving as ambassador for HERO Foundation, All Lights Village, and PhilYEN.  Obviously, there’s a special place in his heart for children of fallen heroes in military service. He will be celebrating his 25th birthday at AFP grounds with some recipients of his cause-oriented activities.
