Birthplace: Manila, Philippines
Born to a Filipino mother and an American father, Billy was discovered at a very young age of 3 in a bowling alley in Manila. As a kid, Billy was known for his energy and love for dancing and singing in front of a live audience. At 11 years old, his family decided to permanently reside in the United States where Billy had no other choice but to leave his showbiz career in the Philippines. But his passion and innate talent for performing pushed him to pursue a showbiz career in his new home country. He began looking for opportunities in Dallas, Texas. After some time, he moved to the Big Apple, New York City, where he enrolled in professional performing schools that housed a lot of other professional singers. A few years after, he moved to France where he released his first solo album and eventually launched five chart-topping hits in Europe. In 2007, Billy chose to return to the Philippines and go back to where it all started. Billy can now be seen hosting multiple Kapamilya shows, which include, It's Showtime, Your Face Familiar and the upcoming season of Pilipinas Got Talent.
