Around three years after the last staging of Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids, OPM icon Ogie Alcasid is going to take on his role again as one of the judges of the forthcoming new season of its regular edition soon. But before that, let’s take a look back on his prolific journey as a Kapamilya via this feature.
Not many of us probably know, but his television career actually took off in ABS-CBN. He started out as one of the hosts of the comedy program Small Brothers in 1992, which was succeeded by a slew of hosting stints in other Kapamilya shows before switching to another network.
He returned in 2014 through his guesting in ASAP, wherein he performed his classic hit “Kailangan Kita” alongside fellow veteran performer Gary Valenciano. Two years after, he made his official comeback as a Kapamilya and went on to appear in a string of ABS-CBN shows.
From being a guest, Ogie was eventually named as the newest addition to the brilliant hurados of the Quarter 4 of It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan in 2016.
The following year, he was hired to be one of the judges of Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids Season 1 alongside Sharon Cuneta and Gary Valenciano. He reprised his role in the latter in its second staging in 2018.
In 2019, the award-winning singer-songwriter was able to once again showcase his impressive acting chops with his inaugural Maalaala Mo Kaya gig as he touched our hearts with his remarkable portrayal in the “Flyers” episode.
Catch Ogie on the much-awaited return of Your Face Sounds Familiar soon on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
