Getting a break in showbiz is as challenging as stepping into the industry. A lot has to do with right timing. That’s exactly what happened to up and coming artist Kiel Alo who happened to be at the right place at the right time. Talent manager, media personality, and star builder Jobert Sucaldito spotted Kiel at a birthday party where he performed and the rest is history. Tonight, Kiel and fellow JS artist Ezekiel Hontiveros are topbilling their own concert From K to Z at the Music Box in Timog. The two have been trained and exposed to large audiences through previous concert guestings and front acts.
Watch his guest performances at Michael Pangilinan and Prima Diva Billy’s Not Just the 2 of Us concert last June:

How he was discovered
Nagstart po ako as an agent ng SMDC International tapos pumunta po ako sa birthday kumanta po ako ng 2 songs tapos di ko po alam na nandoon si Nanay Jobert. Sabi niya po subukan daw po namen walang promises. Tapos ayun na po.
