KHEVIN ALMARIO

WEDDING SINGER | PIANIST | VOCAL TEACHER | THEATER ACTOR

Anchor 1

Khevin Scott Abarquez Almario, known as the Shy Singer, is a multi-talented artist who works as a wedding singer, pianist, vocal teacher, and theater actor. He gained recognition as the resident musician of the popular television show Eat Bulaga! during the COVID-19 pandemic. He first appeared on the show's segment called Bawal Judgmental! in late 2020.

 

Because of his hidden identity, a singing competition called Bida Voice: Shy Singing Competition was organized, where contestants remained anonymous during their performances. The competition aimed to showcase the talents of singers who preferred to remain unrecognized. Shy Singer himself frequently played the piano and provided live musical accompaniment for musical production numbers on the show, with only his hands visible to the audience during the telecast.

 

In June 2021, Shy Singer, along with the three grand finalists of Bida Voice, decided to reveal their identities to the public, bringing an end to their anonymous performances.

BAKIT IKAW

Khevin Almario, a musician, will be releasing his latest single titled "Bakit Ikaw" on March 20, 2023. The song will be exclusively distributed by Digital Sauce and will be available worldwide on major streaming platforms at 9PM PHT on the same day. Almario originally composed the song back in 2000 when he was in high school, but he revisited and revised it in 2021, resulting in a more mature and logical version. According to Almario's friends who heard both versions, the new rendition makes more sense, while the old version captured the rawness of a younger love. The original title of the song was "Ako'y Iyo."
