Meet the A-Pop: Sam Concepcion, Young JV, Jaco and Nel


From L-R: Nel Gomez, Young JV, Jaco Benin and Sam Concepcion

Due to positive feedbacks from the televiewers, the four talented teen cuties who performed on ASAP XV two weeks ago are now members of an
all-new group called "A-POP".

A-Pop, whose members include Sam Concepcion, Jaco Benin, Nel Gomez and Young JV, has been officially launched on ASAP XV today after they made a debut performance last January 10 and another one with international singing sensation Charice Pempengco last January 17 in the same show.

Sam, the most well-known of the four, leads the group along with Iloilo's RnB/Hip-Hop pride Young JV or Eduardo JV Kapunan III.

Sam is also a member of another group called "Gigger Boys" but unlike the Gigger Boys who dances most of the time, the A Pop is a sing-and-dance group because all four members are really great singers and dancers. In fact, Young JV sang the 2009 hit song and MYX chart topper "That Girl".

Fil-Colombian Nel Gomez, who won the MYX VJ Search 2009, can also sing so well while Jaco Benin, who looks like Twilight's Taylor Lautner, is an acoustic singer who in the past usually performed with his friends Krissy & Ericka.

JV, Jaco and Nel are all 19 years old while Sam is the little bro who's only 17 years old.
