Enzo Morales: Another Filipino Talent to Watch Out For


From what started to be random moments singing in family events, Enzo Morales, now 28, has made the Philippines proud by winning one gold, one silver and two bronze medals at the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in 2014. Since then, Enzo has been improving his talents with workshops, being coached even by another WCOPA champion Jed Madela. 

It wasn't a smooth smart with Enzo though, who started as reluctant performer. Despite his doubts about his singing talent, he was already a choir member 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.

“I am a very shy type and joining different contests is not my thing. Don’t get me wrong I love music, but I’m just really shy. I’m not the type who frequently joins (kontesero) singing competitions. 

“My very first competition was during my senior year in high school I sang Always Be My Baby by David Cook and placed 1st runner up,” he reveals.

His second competition was with the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) 2014.

“I only decided to level up my passion for singing when I joined the WCOPA. When I passed the audition, and had the chance to represent the Philippines and bagged four awards.”

At WCOPA, he won one gold, one silver, and two bronze medals. It was the turning point of his love for singing.“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,” shares his burning urgency to pursue his dream.

As a Flight Attendant, the Passion to Sing lives on.

He 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 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.“Whenever I am in my home town I help my parents with their car insurance business, piggery, and fruit plantation.”

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.”

He Never Stops Believing and Singing

As a young singer, AL Frenz Morales in real life, loves singing R&B because it’s stylish and unique. His dad told him to be versatile, which made him learn different genres like Ballad, Jazz, and Rock.

Apart from singing, he invested in voice coaching. He was even mentored by no less than the first Filipino to win the World Championships of Performing Arts titleJed Madela during his stint with WCOPA.

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

Despite having his dream diverted, he is steadfast in succeeding in his passion for singing. He has this to say to 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 your ‘why and who you are doing it for’.”
