Composed of Francis Concepcion, Mackie Empuerto, and Keifer Sanchez, the Bigshot Trio has continued to impress us each week on the second season of Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids. This is not only because of their superb harmonies and exceptional singing, but also leaving us astounded with their on-point impersonations.
The TNT Boys was formed when these three awesome contenders crossed paths on Its Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan Kids. They have since formed a solid bond of friendship and decided to showcase their talent as a group after the said competition.
They made noise in the international scene when they guested earlier this year on the worldwide kiddie talent show Little Big Shots, singing Beyonce’s “Listen” in their first appearance on its UK show in April. They would then reappear on the US telecast a few weeks after again singing “Listen” and make another performance, due to host Steve Harvey’s insistence, in June, singing Queen’s “Somebody to Love.” Popular US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres was so impressed that she shared the TNT Boys’ performance on Twitter.
