It is a remarkable day for singer, recording artist and actor RJ Agustin. Last January 24, 2018, he signed an exclusive contract for top music label, Star Music Philippines. He is one of the artists who will be managed by the said recording label giant this 2018.
RJ Agustin began singing at a young age but initially pursued acting in films and television because as he claims, “Nasa dugo ko talaga ang pagiging artist” as he is also the son of 80s director Arturo “Boy” San Agustin who directed Robin Padilla and FPJ back in the days. RJ appeared in films like the award-winning Cinemalaya film 1st Ko Si 3rd and in the 2016 MMFF film Kabisera where he played Nora Aunor’s son. For RJ, singing is more than a hobby, it is his passion. He began his singing career in out-of-town and bar gigs.
He is a young singer with a passionate heart – lots of it – something hoarded from past experiences but he insists that this does not stop him from having a positive outlook in life and love. This, he feels, will translate in his music. “Gusto ko maging boses ng mga nasaktan sa love pero positive and hopeful pa din sa huli.” he says. Indeed his fans call him the male voice of the millennials, both soulful and hopeful.
This is why RJ was overjoyed when Star Music head Roxy Liquigan and Jonathan Manalo met with him and made him a part of their recording label. “Narinig ko si RJ sa isang show sa MOR, sabi ko, sino yan? Kunin natin siya,” Roxy Liquigan proclaimed.
RJ is looking forward to a bright future with Star Music Philippines. “Ito na talaga! Excited na akong makatrabaho silang lahat dito sa Star Music! At sobrang excited na ako na awitin yung mga kantang gustong isigaw ng mga puso ng Pinoy. Not only will it be a song that everyone can relate to. Alam kong magiging modern classic ito. Please watch out for my new single coming out very soon!”
RJ Agustin is managed by FAM or Firestarters Artists Management.
