Last year, singer Michael Pangilinan transformed into Adam Levine, Tracy Chapman, Marco Sison, Bono (of U2), Michael V and Brandon Beal, to name a few, during the first season of Your Face Sounds Familiar.
Last week though, the pop singer who turned 21 on Nov. 26, started posting a series of transformation photos that made his fans and followers swoon. He was not impersonating any local or Hollywood star, this time, it was his fitness transformation that Michael shared with his social media followers.
The singer, who popularized the hit song “Pare Mahal Mo Raw Ako,” has become addicted to going to the gym after seeing the result of hitting a fitness center regularly. Through proper diet and with the help of his fitness instructor, he’s able to achieve his fitness goal fast and easy.
To show off his physical transformation, which he is obviously proud of, he posted a series of shirtless photos (20 photos to be exact) that he captioned “Birthday Series.”
“Today’s actions are tomorrow’s results…I’m going to make you so proud,” he said referring to the gains he’s made after months of rigorous training at the gym.
Michael was discovered in 2012 when he auditioned for the first season of X-Factor Philippines. He was able to pass the auditions and the bootcamp but failed to make it to the Top 12 during the judges’ home visit.
His career didn’t take off until a video scandal of him went viral online. In an interview with ABS-CBN, the singer admitted that he was indeed the guy on the video pleasuring himself that was recorded three or four years ago.
He said he is a now changed man especially that he already has a kid who recently just turned one. Despite the controversy, the runner-up of ABS-CBN’s Your Face Sounds Familiar is thankful for the enduring support he received from his family and friends.
Michael hopes that his amazing body transformation from a lanky teenager into a hunky man will also inspire people who wanted to see a better version of themselves.
