Bukidnon Divo Daniel Mark Jay Onahon on ABS-CBN's Tawag ng Tanghalan

Bukidnon pride represented Mindanao on ABS-CBN's Tawag ng Tanghalan. 

Another Bukidnon pride made it to ABS-CBN’s singing competition Tawag ng Tanghalan. The 22 year-old Daniel Mark Jay Onahon from Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon showed his vocal prowess by singing the 1995 movie drama “Sana Maulit Muli” – a very hit OPM song popularized by various artists Gary Valenciano, Lea Salonga and Regine Velasquez, the one he sang that made him the daily winner. 

After winning the daily competition, he again performed  to beat the defending champion from Luzon, sang the 1983 contemporary R&B “Time to Reveal”, popularized by DeBarge, and revived by Philippine’s World Championship of Performing Arts Champion Jed Madela.

Maki beat the two contenders from Luzon and Visayas, garnering the score of 90.8 that he got from the judges. 

Maki delivered a very emotional interpretation of Sana Maulit Muli as he reminisced his late father who wished to see him perform on national television.  

Daniel Mark, known as Maki is an Electronics major from Bukidnon State University. Also, he is a member of the internationally acclaimed Bukidnon State University Chorale. Daniel Mark was recently awarded as Champion for the Socio-Cultural competition’s Kundiman Solo, singing Nicanor Abelardo’s dramatic art song “Nasaan Ka Irog” at the Mindanao Association of State Tertiary Schools, Inc. held at Tandag, Surigao City, Philippines.

Tawag ng Tanghalan judges Billy Crawford & Karylle Tatlonghari praised Maki for having a high and extensive tenor voice.
