Darren admitted that he is really ecstatic about his upcoming concert. "I feel really excited and nervous at the same time," he said.

Darren shared that he will be performing new songs for his fans. "More dancing ‘to, something that you guys haven't seen yet on The Voice." He also relayed that he will be singing some hit songs of the King of Pop and some fresh R&B tracks. "[I'm going to sing] some Michael Jackson songs and the newest pop and R&B songs."

The young singer said that he was really surprised when he learned that the tickets for his concert were already sold out. "I feel blessed and overwhelmed because I did not expect his reaction from people." On his message for his supporters, he said, "Thank you very much. Your love and support inspire me a lot. I will forever remain grateful to all of you. God bless."

He was also invited to  Jed Madela's concert last September. Jed in his interviews expressed his support for Darren’s talent. “Magaling silang apat. Everybody had their time to shine and everybody who watched them had their choices. Ako ang naging choice ko si Darren. It started from there. Talagang pinanindigan ko ‘yung choice ko. Bilib ako sa bata eh,” Jed said.
