2014 is a big year for Ken Chan.
He has already won the hearts of many for his roles as "Ryan Ledesma" in Rhodora X and other teleseryes along with his regular hosting gig for the late night show "Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman"and his recognition at this year's FAMAS where he received the German Moreno Youth Achievement award, Ken is adding another feather to his cap and proved that he can do it all. This young talent surprised everyone by releasing a self-titled album showcasing his vocals and his debut as a singer.
The album boasts his own version of the '80s hit songs, "Nais Kong Malaman Mo" by the Boyfriends, "Dahil Ikaw" by Truefaith and many more. The album also features the only original song penned by Kiko Salazar titled "Paikot-ikot."
With his new career move, many are wondering why he chose to venture in the music industry and how he feels about this, Ken humbly answered this saying "Actually pag-pasok ko sa showbiz hindi ko alam yung eksaktong purpose ko. Basta ang alam ko lang hilig kong kumanta, hilig kong umarte, hilig kong sumayaw and I feel so blessed and thankful that Polyeast Records gave me this opportunity and gave me this chance para ma-share ko yung hilig ko sa kanta lalo na sa mga sumosoporta sa akin. Sobrang saya at sarap ng feeling ba magkaroon ng album."
But on top of all of this, he has a role in an upcoming indie film for Cinemalaya titled "1st ko si 3rd."
