MYXclusive: NOEL COMIA JR. Is The Newest Wonderboy!
The Voice Kids alum Noel Comia Jr. is the newest wonderboy! Not only can he bless you with his angelic voice and rhythmic hands, this 13-year old dude will also amaze you with his acting prowess on stage and on your screens.
At the early age of 6, Noel already showed signs of being a musical genius - belting out songs on the karaoke machine and playing harmonies in various instruments like guitar, piano, drums, violin, ukulele, and harmonica.
He later trained as a scholar at Kids Act Philippines Inc. (KAPI), a professional children's theater company which nurtured his love for acting and developed his vocal chops. "They taught me the right technique to sing well, how to sing the right way," Noel shared.
He has been cast in numerous productions such as Hansel and Gretel, Repertory Philippines' Pinocchio, Secret Garden, Tanghalang Pilipino's Prinsipe Munti, Cinderella, and the 60th anniversary of Noli Me Tangere, The Opera Manila.
Noel's big heart for music led him to join Season 3 of The Voice Kids last year! Though he didn't make it to the finals, he got the chance to sing with his coach Lea Salonga and even earned a role in the musical Fun Home which starred the Broadway diva.

Earlier this year, the young artist gained more attention with his magical cover of "Beauty and the Beast" with The Voice Kids Season 2 winner Elha Nympha.
Noel recently appeared in the drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya as the young Tawag Ng Tanghalan winner Noven Belleza. He admitted, "It was nerve-racking kasi kailangan minsan umiyak."
This August, he's invading the silver screen in the Cinemalaya 2017 official finalist Kiko Boksingero. According to Noel, it's about a young boy who lost his mother. "He's gonna go through life. Mami-meet niya po yung papa niya."
For now, the newly-minted recording artist has dropped his first single under MCA Music - a cover of Lenka's hit "The Show". "I would like to try jazz, pop, and maybe a bit of rock or something like that," he said. "Gusto ko pa pong mag-perform nang marami pa po."
There's really nothing that this boy wonder can't do! Check out our MYXclusive interview with Noel Comia Jr. during the MCA Teen Invasion event. Find out what the young artist does for fun and listen to his advice to other kids like him:
