Jake Zyrus sounds like Sam Mangubat in singing 'The Good Son' theme song

I actually thought Tawag ng Tanghalan runner-up Sam Mangubat is the voice behind 'The Good Son' theme song "I'll Be There For You".

The beautiful song 'I'll Be There For You', originally by Martin Nieverra (who also composed the song with Sir Louie Ocampo) is being prominently played in the full trailer of ABS-CBN's upcoming soap 'The Good Son' and many believed, including this blogger, that it's Sam Mangubat who's singing.

I saw these tweets of people wonderin' if it's really him.

But sorry to disappoint you guys. It's not Sam.

I even had to ask Direk Andoy Ranay, one of 'The Good Son' directors, about who sang the theme song. Part of me was hoping it's Sam, but Direk Andoy confirmed to me that it's Jake Zyrus!

Are you surprised?

Perhaps Jake would be flattered to know that he now sounds like a man, something he'd like to achieve after letting go of his Charice voice.

No trace of Charice in Jake's own version of 'I'll Be There For You', which interestingly was also revived before by another trans man, Aiza Seguerra.

Watch 'The Good Son' trailer to hear Jake singin' "I'll Be There":

'The Good Son' stars Joshua Garcia, John Estrada, Eula Valdez, Mylene Dizon, Jerome Ponce, Loisa Andalio, McCoy De Leon, Elisse Joson, Nash Aguas, Alexa Ilacad, Liza Lorena and Albert Martinez. It will premiere September 25 on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida. - Mykiru.ph
