Darren Espanto marked his 21st birthday with a celebration that he will definitely treasure for the rest of his life.
On Monday, May 30, the 21-year-old Kapamilya singer shared photos from his star-studded celebration last May 23.
In a lengthy post, Darren thanked everyone who helped make his birthday — which he described as a “dream come true” — a success.
“What a way to celebrate my 21st birthday! Thank you so much to all the people who helped me make this dream come true. #DarrenAt21,” he wrote in the caption of his post.
He went on to express his gratitude to the stars who made the night even more magical as well as his little sister for doing a surprise performance.
Edward Barber served as host while KZ Tandingan, Erik Santos, Regine Velasquez, and Gary Valenciano were among the performers during the program.
“Thank you to my amazing host, my brother, Edward Barber, for hosting his first live event with an audience just for me!” he said.
“Thank you to Tito Gary for the heartfelt opening prayer. And to Ate KZ, Kuya Erik, Mama Regine, and Tito Gary and my little sister, Lynelle, for the performances! I DIDN’T EXPECT THEM AT ALL! I was such a fan boy watching all of you perform live!” he added.
Meanwhile, English singer-songwriter and “Dancing On My Own” hitmaker Calum Scott greeted Darren. “Happy Birthday Darren!” Calum wrote with a fire emoji.
