Online heartthrob Kimpoy Feliciano releases debut album under Universal Records

By 8:36:00 PM , , , , , ,


When I saw Kimpoy Feliciano's name trend online via Twitter I was like, "who is he?" I must admit, I haven't had the time to watch TV or even listen to FM/AM, so I was wondering, who is this online sensation? Then I found out, he's yet another online heartthrob who not only got the attention of teenage girls but got more than 430,000 Twitter followers, 100,000 on Facebook, 100,000 on Tumblr and more than 2 million views on You Tube (phew!) In my head, I say, "WOW!"

Thankfully, I was invited to the "Kimpoy Feliciano Media Conference" presented by Universal Records, Orion Entertainment, Pinoy Song Magazine and LionHearTV.  It was amazing that after being an online sensation, this opened new opportunities to Kimpoy who is currently based on New Zealand. 

Kimpoy releases his debut album under Universal Records, with the help of Orioan Entertainment, it has 6 songs in a CD and DVD format. For Php 250, you can now buy it on all record stores nationwide and can be downloaded through www.mymusicstores.com.  

For 10 days, this 19 year old online hunk recorded his songs last August 2012. 
His album contains Right Next To Me, I’ll Be Your Hero, Ngiti, Una at Huling Mamahalin, and Ikaw Lang.  All songs have music videos and some taken in New Zealand where he directed it. He will be staying here in Manila until February 2013 to promote his album and to do a lot of guesting and other commitments. 


When asked who was his mentor when it comes to singing, he told the media that he would love to collaborate with Sarah Geronimo, Julie Ann San Jose or Christian Bautista who is also under Universal Records. As for celebrity crush, he would love to go on a date with Anne Curtis, given an opportunity. Why not right?:-)

He is also awarded as a Peace ambassador for promoting peace online, how you ask? Kimpoy has been very active online either through his Twitter account or via his Tumblr account giving out advices to people who have love problems or anything under the sun. You might want to try it out. He gives out sincere advices that can ease out troubled minds.


“I am humbled and overwhelmed first with the trust and support given to me by Universal Records. I really never thought that I’d be given my own album, so nagpapasalamat talaga ako,” expresses Kimpoy. “Aside from that, I am also equally grateful to all my friends/followers that showed support during my launch. Nakakataba ng puso na maraming nagpunta at nagbigay ng suporta.”


Aside from Ikaw Lang, the album also includes Kimpoy’s rendiitons of Ngiti, Right Next To Me, I’ll Be Your Hero, Una at Huling Mamahalin, and Alipin, which he dedicates to all his followers. The album, produced by multi-platinum producer Ito Rapadas, comes with a DVD of all the album’s music videos.

Four years ago, Kimpoy’s family decided to migrate to Dunedin, New Zealand. Just like any kid in his situation then, he had no choice but to oblige in his family’s decision to move to a new place, away from his other family, friends, and classmates.


“It was very hard for me when my family decided to move to Dunedin. I had to leave everyone behind. When we left for Dunedin, it was one of the saddest days in my life,” says the 19-year-old Kimpoy, who is currently a second year Business Management Student in University of Otago. “Who would have known that because of that sadness, I would connect to more people in the Philippines through social media? Talagang everything happens for a reason and I am blessed that I have friends from everywhere now. Talagang no boundaries.”

The support of these new friends made Kimpoy one of the most influential Filipinos on Twitter, according to social media analytics site Klout.com. He ranked third in the survey, where he is the lone non-TV star.

Kimpoy graced the cover of the September issue of Pinoy Song Magazine, which is his first magazine cover. 

He bagged the 2012 Globe Tatt Awards’ Thought Mover Award for his nuggets of wisdom. He also received the Best Viral Video Award from MEG Magazine yesterday.

He was adjudged number one Youtube Leader in the 4th Annual Shorty Awards, besting other local and international celebrities. The awarding was held in New York, USA. He was also Peace Ambassador earlier this year by the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process.

Kimpoy is also the most followed Twitter user in New Zealand.
