"In Love Ako Sa Yo"
by: Darren Espanto

Mula nung makilala ka
Lagi na lamang naiisip ka
Ang yung ganda'y naiiba
Hangad kung lagi ay makita ka

Sana'y hindi panaginip
O di kaya'y kathang isip
Naakit mo ang puso ko
Ngayon ay umiibig sa iyo

In love na ako
In love na sa iyo
Sana'y malaman mo
Ang damdamin ko

Tinamaan ako
Tinamaan sa iyo
Sana'y sabihin mo
Sayo ay may pag-asa ako
oh woh oh woooh ooh oh ooh

At kahit sa pagtulog ko
Ika'y narun pa rin sa isip ko
Hinahagkan-hagkan kita
At sana ang lahat ay tunay na

Sana'y hindi panaginip
O di kaya'y kathang - isip
Naakit mo ang puso ko
Ngayon ay umiibig sa iyo
(woh oh oh ooh)

In love na ako
In love na sa iyo
Sana'y malaman mo
Ang damdamin ko

Tinamaan ako
Tinamaan sa iyo
Sana'y sabihin mo
Sayo ay may pag-asa ako

Sabihin mo ang gagawin
Ito'y patutunayan sa iyo
Mahal kita walang iba
Na iibigin ng puso ko

In love na ako
In love na sa iyo
Sana'y malaman mo
Ang damdamin ko

Tinamaan ako
Tinamaan sa iyo
Sana'y sabihin mo
Sayo ay may pag-asa ako
oh oh

In love na ako
In love na sa iyo
Sana'y malaman mo
Ang damdamin ko

Tinamaan ako
Tinamaan sa iyo
Sana'y sabihin mo
Sayo ay may pag-asa ako
oh woh oh woooh ooh oh

Philippines, He also has a younger sister named Lynelle Anne G. Espanto. Despite living in Canada, his parents taught him Filipino language, particularly Tagalog, and he remains fluent with it. He said, "When I went home from school, when I'm still speaking English they will tell me 'you are not in the school anymore, you're in the house, you should speak Tagalog' so that's how I became fluent in Tagalog."

Espanto started singing at the age of two. In a Manila Bulletin interview, Espanto stated that: "When I was little, I would listen to some songs and I'd try to copy the tune to it." As a toddler, Espanto serenaded his parents with the tunes from The Lion King or Sleeping Beauty in their home, which led to his relatives to discover his singing potential and urge him to pursue and hone his raw talent. His parents were supportive of his dreams and talents, his father taught him the basics of singing, and his mother who was a choreographer during high school days, helped him infused dance into his singing performance.



At age 12, Darren Espanto attended Grade 6 at St. Jude Elementary in Calgary, but went to the Philippines in 2014 for The Voice Kids.
