While Bailey May may have been focusing on his career as a member of rising global pop group Now United, he is still very much interested in doing projects here in the Philippines.
“Sana maybe in the future I can act. At siyempre mga ganaps. Mga mall shows siguro sa ibang parts ng Pinas. Of course, you’re going to expect more from me here,” he said in an exclusive interview during Now United's show at Eastwood City.
Having performed their latest song “Afraid Of Letting Go” alongside fellow Now United members on ASAP, several netizens compared not just his look and aura but his vocal range as well to pop heartthrob Justin Bieber.
“I feel very blessed to hear that. I feel very honored. Kasi I’ve only been singing for three years. And to be put beside Justin Bieber, it feels pretty good,” May said, feeling grateful for all the praises he’s been getting online.

According to Bailey May, he has grown so much as an artist since joining Now United.
“Yeah, I grew so much as an artist. I learned how to dance. Siguro alam niyo nung nandito ako sa Philippines na hindi ako medyo magaling magsayaw pero ngayon people said improved na and sa confidence din po,” he stated.
“Sobrang I gained a lot of confidence from this group and fans from around the world, international fans hindi lang dito sa Philippines,” he added, sharing how happy he is to have gained more fans not just locally but also abroad.
Bailey May also assured his fans that they will be seeing more of him in the coming days as he will have guest appearances on a couple of ABS-CBN shows.
“May show kami sa Abu Dhabi, Special Olympics. I will also extend my vacation here in the Philippines. Pag-alis nila I’ll do my guestings here sa ABS(CBN) like GGV maybe. Boy Abunda sana. Saya! You’ll see me on TV.”
