Where Was DARREN ESPANTO During Pope Francis' UST Event?

At Pope Francis' event at University of Santo Tomas, many of The Voice Kids fans were waiting to watch his performance for the Pope! But he was nowhere to be found? Where was he?

Although he wasn't seen on the live telecast, Darren did in fact perform "Tell The World Of His Love", the 1995 World Youth Day theme song, nearing the end of Pope Francis' encounter with the youth during the UST event!

Just like Darren, Kapamilya singing stars, Angeline Quinto and Jed Madela also performed at the UST event! Angeline sang Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" while Jed sang his rendition of "Light Of A Million"!

Once again, Jamie Rivera performed "We Are All God's Children" - the theme song of Papal's visit in the Philippines! We're all so proud and happy for these stars who were able to make the event even more grand with their heartfelt performances!

    I felt nostalgic hearing Darren's version of Tell The World of His Love, the song close to my Heart. Bring backs the memories of the 1995 World Youth Day. Nice Rendition by the way Darren
