MARCELITO POMOY AMERICA'S GOT TALENT CHAMPIONS DEPRESSED

Marcelito Pomoy is headed to the semifinals of AGT: The Champions Season 2. The Filipino singer wowed the judges with his ability to sing in both male and female voices.


Marcelito won Pilipinas Got Talent in 2011. However, after his win, he apparently considered quitting music. Read on to find out what Marcelito said about a difficult time in his life, and how AGT: Champions has changed things for him. Also, who really helped him through his deep depression.

Why Singer Marcelito Pomoy Almost Quit Music

Marcelito told reporters that he feels “overwhelmed” to be competing again, adding that it’s “like I’m starting all over again.” As one reporter shared, Marcelito’s management group Star Magic (associated with ABS-CBN) was “ignoring his career” before Champions.

The singer said he’s “thankful to ABS-CBN because if not for them I will not become known.” However, he acknowledged that in 2015 he felt like his career might be over.

“There are a lot of new talents, because every year there are always new talents,” Marcelito said. “It’s like my world crumbled, and I just said to myself to maybe just stick and focus on my business.” (Marcelito owns two hardware stores.)

Marcelito Was ‘Depressed’ Before ‘AGT’ Called

The singer has already revealed that he turned down an offer to appear on AGT in the past, because it was the traditional format and not Champions. He said he felt “depressed” before the Champions offer came.


Marcelito said he “cried” and occasionally drank “to forget my problems.” When asked if he thought he was a “has-been,” he said he did. He credits his wife Joan (who is also his manager) with helping him through it.

“I just have to thank my wife, because she found a way,” Marcelito said. “When I was losing hope, she encouraged me and told me, ‘You can still do this. You still have a voice. I will find a way.'”

It was Marcelito’s wife who got the invitation for him to appear on AGT: The Champions. She even joined him on stage before his first performance during the preliminaries. And now Marcelito is a favorite to win the whole show!
