Multi-talented Filipino artist Kyle Echarri embarks on yet another electrifying adventure as he creates beautiful music with Singaporean singer-songwriter Haven for a new track titled “Imagine.”
Kyle’s team-up with his fellow 16-year-old artist breaks new ground as it is the first international collaboration between StarPOP Philippines, Academy of Rock Singapore, and Cornerstone Music.
“The song ‘Imagine’ talks about two total strangers who live different lives but have a certain connection. The concept actually is that Haven is from Singapore, Kyle is from the Philippines, so it’s like they’re from different places and haven’t met each other yet but they have a message that they want to convey to each other,” StarPOP head Rox Santos explained.
“I really, really liked the story that’s why when I did it, I was ecstatic about it and how the finished track turned out to be,” Kyle added.
The song, composed by Star Music artist Trisha Denise and StarPOP head Rox Santos, complements Kyle’s pop-infused sound and Haven’s distinct, dreamy style of singing.
Singaporean musician and vocalist Haven started out as a student of Academy of Rock. She joined her first singing competition when she was 13, where she finished third. This, along with the help of the Academy of Rock, propelled her to continue performing at various events like the Singapore Street Festival.
“I want to be an artist that everyone can relate to. I want everyone to be very comfortable with my music, I don’t want them to feel intimidated so ‘haven’ means safe place,” shared Haven on the meaning behind her name.
The exciting collaboration also comes after Kyle released his “Pangako” single last year and his breakthrough in acting as “Kristoff” in the top-rating Kapamilya teleserye “Kadenang Ginto.”
The StarPOP artist, who joined “The Voice Kids” in 2015, is now one of the Kapamilya artists bridging the gap between the local and international music scene as ABS-CBN continues its campaign to introduce the talent of Filipinos to the world stage.
