As a child, budding singer Jericho Violago has already exhibited the makings of a singer-performer. But as a doting son, and the family’s bunso at that, the young artist made good his promise to his parents to finish school first. He worked his way to university and finished his education with Latin honors.
Armed with a BS Business Management degree from Ateneo de Manila University, this 22-year old graduated cum laude and bravely embarked on a singing-performing career anchored on his strong vocals and wide range of talent.
This early, a veteran record producer has been compiling songs for his first recording.
Jericho’s versatility as a singer is backed by a string of awards earned during his years at the Ateneo, where his high school group emerged as champion at Musikapella competition in 2014. Jericho was also named champion at the Ateneo Grade School Singing Competition in 2011. He was also vice-president of Ateneo Senior High School Glee Club.
The young man, youngest of five children to couple Joselito and Chiqui Violago, had offers along the way to enter this and that contest, topped by enticing management contracts, but he was focused on earning his degree, making his parents proud.
Upon graduation in 2022, Jerry was offered by his father a key position at the family-owned rice mill business in San Jose, Nueva Ecija. He turned down the invite, then asked the permission of his parents to allow him to finally pursue his dream as a singer-performer.
Jerry covers a wide range as a singer, shifting with equal ease from pop, jazz and swing to R&B and soul. He loves OPM and is looking forward to collaborating with today’s hit makers. His entertainment credits include performances at the Music Museum, GSIS Museum, Valle Verde Country Club.
In these outings, he performed songs from Broadway musicals as King and I, Annie, South Pacific as well as OPM hits and jazzy standards such as those by Michael Buble. As a teen, Jericho trained at The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab.
