Being in the industry since he was still an adorable young boy, we’ve witnessed how CJ Navato grew up into becoming one of the talented young artists of his generation. Thus, his fans were surely delighted to find out that he’s among the contestants of the much-awaited Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 3.
As we look forward on seeing him transform into various music icons, let’s revisit first some of his television appearances wherein he impressed us with his talents.
Avid Kapamilya viewers are arguably aware that his career kicked off when he joined ABS-CBN’s talent search Star Circle Quest: Kids Edition Season 1 in 2004 at the age of 7.
He then went on to appear in a slew of teleseryes and movies, with Goin’ Bulilit, Maalaala Mo Kaya, Luv U (2012-2016), Forevermore (2014), and Doc Ricky, Pedia (2017) as among the most remarkable.
In the recent years, CJ ventured in the music scene by doing song covers alongside his fellow Goin’ Bulilit alumni Kristel Fulgar, which went viral online.
Due to the immense popularity of their tandem, they appeared together in a number of ABS-CBN programs, such as in the “Trabahula” segment of It’s Showtime in 2016. They didn’t only took on the challenges of the game, but also sampled their well-loved rendition of Little Mix’s “Secret Love Song”.
On that same year, their duets of “Over and Over Again” by Nathan Sykes and “Hate That I Love You” by Rihanna and Ne-Yo were featured in the “Tunog Star Magic” segment of Star Magic’s official YouTube channel.
The 24-year-old actor-singer then had the opportunity to record his own songs under Star Music. His first single “Pangarap” was released in August 2016, while his collaboration with Kristel titled “Baka, Pwede Naman, Siguro” came out in November of that year.
In 2017, he astounded us with his dancing skill as he joined the C.O.C.: Clash of Celebrities segment of It’s Showtime alongside actress Michelle Vito.
CJ was then tapped to be one of the contestants in the Tawag Ng Tanghalan Celebrity Champions of the aforementioned noontime show. In the daily rounds, he swooned us with his rendition of Keith Martin’s “Because Of You”.
And now, the young heartthrob is ready to wow us with his versatility as he’s about to take on different shoes in his upcoming Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 3 stint that you can watch on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z!
