Darren Espanto should be the winner! He deserves all this... He's a total performer and the best singer-dancer indeed! At the age of 13, the youngest amongst singers, well-deserve to be called as the "sold out concert prince" as most of his concerts here and abroad are always full to the brim and tickets were sold out in just one day or few days after the tickets been starting selling. This young man is truly in demand here and abroad for a show. And most of all, a very dedicated to his profession, no matter how tired he's been, he still make sure he will have his total performance every time.

5 Gerald Santos

The Sinatra of the Philippines! - Greenmean

Great singer, composer, dancer, and performer. Whether it be ballads, soft rock, pop or rap music, he delivers with versatility and much gusto. Being an actor on stage or in the small or big screen is just an added bonus in his personal and professional talents. Just one of the down-to-earth personalities there is around. Gerald Santos is a great entertainer groomed for success proven by non-stop hand clapping, foot stomping kind of music performed here and abroad.

He sings from the heart and you will feel it if you will listen to him live. Plus the fact that he is so down to earth and very approachable. He never discriminates gender. He just loves to render songs to everyone.

Only Jed Madela dominated the WCOPA. Need I say more? Oh yes, I do. He is a very talented singer, the transitions of his registers are very hard to identify. His voice is insanely powerful, he sings with such ease and with minimal effort. He is the best male singer in the Philippines. For me, he deserves to be on the top of this list.

The Voice of the World winner. A truly talented young man. - hatcher234

Jed Madela is a real belter. He can reach the high notes very solid and clear without shouting. And he can also sing the lower notes. What an amazing belter! You are deserving to be on top of the list.

I always watch his performances and concerts live. He is really the best! He sings from the heart. He's in WCOPA hall of fame. He's not only an amazing singer but he also shares his talent to other WCOPA artist, guiding them.

17 Janno Gibbs

One of the smoothest voice in the country. Janno Gibbs is the King of Soul of the Philippines, and the king deserves to be in the top 1

we had our own opinions when it comes to voice quality.. but for me, its still the king of soul! go janno...

No one can beat the King of Soul of the Philippines. He is the best. He must be at no. 1. He deserves to be no. 1 because he has good voice quality. He also composes very good song. He is better than of all the male singers in the Philippines - jaymark08

I don't know much about male singers but I'm perfectly aware that he sang "Fallin'" and that made me love him. I don't give a damn about the other male singers higher vocal range, all I know is he was the only one who managed to give me a soulful feeling while listening to his song.

Amazing voice! Love his rendition of "One Last Cry" and "It might be you."

Amazing soulful voice!

37 Bugoy Drilon

In my opinion he is only no. 22 here in this list, because in the Philippines they have a certain criteria of what a famous male singer should actually look like. But if he were here in America, I guarantee he would be at the top of the list. I just saw a YouTube video of him and was blown away. Think Jessica Sanchez, if she grew up in the Philippines would she be even top of the female singers.

38 Red Diola

He is a very talented singer, He can Hypnotize his audience because of his angelic voice and his goal is to inspired the people around him and help some talented fortunate to aim high! Don't Stop Believing Show your talent and god will appreciate it because he knows you use it in Right!

You have Great Voice! From Probinsya Eat all you can DAVAO CITY.

Very charming cool and his voice made my emotiins and feelings relaxs.

A great singer indeed!
