During the Christmas season, it’s a common sight to see kids get together to sing Christmas songs in front of homes in exchange for loose change or if luckier, crisp bills. Yesterday, we got that familiar Christmas carol sight when the all-boy group UPGRADE serenaded everyone with Christmas songs exclusively here on One Music PH.
As Armond Bernas, Ivan Lat, Rhem Enjavi, Casey Martinez, and Miggy San Pablo (Mark Baracael was with the group in spirit) performed beautiful renditions of the Christmas songs “Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber and “Last Christmas, and their album’s carrier single “Because Of You,” the boys also shared a thing or two about their previous Christmas celebrations, and of course, why this coming Christmas is a lot more special.
“Kasi kumbaga, Christmas ‘di ba sabi yun daw yung season of giving at siyempre, thanking God kung ano yung mga binigay Niya sa ating blessings, and this year kasi it’s been a great year for us, kaya siguro itong Christmas na ito, ito yung magiging way namin to thank Him. Binigyan kami ng mga blessings kaya masaya para samin tong Christmas [this year.] (They said that Christmas is the season of giving, and of course, thanking God for the blessings that he gave us, and it’s been a great year for us, so this Christmas will be a chance to show our thanks to Him),” Rhem said.
The group also revealed that when they were younger, they’ve had the fun experience of singing Christmas carols door to door, and if their exclusive performance yesterday on One Music PH was any indication, their singing prowess as a group has indeed evolved. Indeed, UPGRADE has come a long way since breaking through the showbiz industry, and their busy schedule is a definite proof of that. Before the year ends, and in the early parts of 2017, the group has several shows lined up already, and the increasing demand for the boys’ performances should be a good reason to sing their hearts out this Christmas season.

It may seem that Karlos is out of place in One Music PH because he’s someone who can’t live without sports. Until of course, he realized that he is equally passionate with music as well. He may not admit it just yet, but Karlos loves Davie Bowie very much. Oh, and he runs a barbershop too.
