Meet Enzo Morales, a Filipino champion in World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) who brought gold, silver and two bronze medals for the Philippines. Enzo came from a family of singers and music lovers. His parents saw potential in him as he began singing at the age of six or seven. Since then, they always encourages him to sing especially during their family gatherings.

According to Enzo, “Singing is our brand of bonding whenever there’s a gathering in the house. At first, my dad and my mom pushed me to sing. I have two older sisters who sing as well. They also made an impact to pursue this passion of mine.”

During his younger years, he’s been always insecure and shy that’s why he didn’t like to join any singing contests. Despite of that, He joined the choir in his primary school from grade three to six at Nagcarlan Montessori Center. He continued singing in the choir during his third and fourth years in high school at St Mary’s Academy of Nagcarlan. On his senior year in high school, he was encouraged to join a school competition and that’s when he won 1st Runner Up, which made him think to pursue greater achievements in singing.

I only decided to level up my passion for singing when I joined the WCOPA in 2014. When I passed the audition, and had the chance to represent the Philippines and bagged four awards. I realized that I have to use the gift and share it with people. After that WCOPA experience, it won’t be my last because I am still open to opportunities.” Enzo said.

Enzo loves singing R&B. His dad told him to be versatile, which made him learn different genres like Ballad, Jazz, and Rock. During his stint with WCOPA, he was mentored by no less than the first Filipino to win the World Championships of Performing Arts title —Jed Madela.

I must say after WCOPA–I was able to perform in different radio stations and TV networks–like DZRH, Eagle network by INC, ASOP A Song of Praise, DZMM Teleradyo, Wish FM, and Walang Tulugan with Master Showman. I had the chance to be a guest singer at Coconut Festival in San Pablo Laguna.

His singing stint also brought him to acting [and had a beat role] in Maalaala Mo Kaya’s episode And I Love You So.

He also joined the Center for Pop Music and Star Magic workshops for self-improvement in singing and performing arts.

AL Frenz Morales in real life, now age 28, had finished B.S. Psychology from Far Eastern University in 2013, he began working as an International Flight Attendant for five years now with Philippine Airlines. He also felt his life’s purpose got diverted to other stuff. He was doing side jobs by selling different goods from abroad like bags, shoes, and even jewelry items. Just like a diverted flight, his dream of pursuing to become a singer is still alive. For him, singing gives him a different satisfaction and fulfillment.

I mostly feel alive whenever I perform. It makes my soul very happy while the adrenaline it gives me–I feel like I’m a different person every time I perform. Of course, with the applause of the people who appreciate my voice, I can feel that I am doing something good in my life and serving my purpose.”

Despite having his dream diverted, he is steadfast in succeeding in his passion for singing.
He has this to say to all aspiring and beginning singers,

Just keep going even if opportunities are lacking. Know your core and your worth because this will make you an artist. There’s a lot of good singers out there, but they lack soul and substance. Know who you are and people will start to appreciate you.
Practice, expose yourself whenever there’s an opportunity to sing as it will make you confident as you keep on doing it. Surround yourself with people who have the same passion as yours, people who support you in your journey. Know who you are as an artist and people will adore and support you in your journey.
