Six-year-old Imogen Cantong, a member of “It’s Showtime’s” resident “batang cute-po” kiddie panel, highlights the unique joys of Filipino childhood in her debut single “Da Da Da.”
The upbeat track was inspired by the melody Imogen used to sing when she was only two years old.
Her parents Rey Cantong and Kaye Cantong of Six Part Invention composed and produced the song which looks back on the fun memories of a happy childhood.
“Yung Da Da Da po for me ay para sa mga babies na hindi pa nakakapagsalita. I composed it for them po. Ang meaning po ay parang nagyayaya [na makisaya sa awitin],” said Imogen.
Aside from being a resident panel member for “It’s Showtime’s” “Isip Bata” segment and being one of the featured singers in Jamie Rivera’s “3-in-1” song, she is also a performer who has passion for singing and dancing.
Due to her parents’ musical career, she took interest in singing and dancing at a young age.
She enjoys performing at school programs that help her hone her confidence as well.
“When I was two years old po lagi ako nagwa-watch ng music videos then lagi ko po sila ginagaya.
Also nakikita ko po parents ko na nagpe-perform kaya nagustuhan ko na rin po mag-perform,” Imogen shared.
Now, she bravely takes a step forward toward her dream as she releases her first single as a recording artist.
She looks up to various local and international artists such as Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Sarah Geronimo, Blackpink, Ariana Grande, and her parents’ band Six Part Invention.
Listen to the hopeful message of “Da Da Da” available on various music streaming platforms and watch Imogen’s recording session on ABS-CBN Music YouTube channel.
