What to Expect
If there is one thing I can guarantee, it is that I will give my absolute 110% on the stage. I am a passionate performer and I pay attention to detail. I do not hit the stage to do a mediocre job. I strive for my audience's attention and their appreciation for my craft. My goal is to make my client and my audience more than satisfied with what they have paid to see.
Hello, my name is Roy Christian Tugbang and I am a 17 year old vocalist for Toronto, Canada. I have been singing since the age of four, and, since then, I have received formal training in the European bel canto technique, the classical technique through the Royal Conservatory of Music, choral technique through Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts’ and also modern pop technique.
My most notable performances include winning the FCT Filipino Singing Idol Toronto Junior Division 2006, being a member of the select few to record Un’Avventura (Team Italy theme song) with various artists which would later be played at the FIFA World Cup of Soccer 2006 in Germany, being invited for a guest appearance at the Philippine Consulate Toronto during an open house event in 2007, and hosting my first solo concert “This is the Moment…with Roy”. In 2007, I was awarded the best vocalist award at the CNE Junior Rising Star Talent Competition and a year later I was awarded the Publishers’ Award by the York Region Arts Council sponsored by the York Region Media Group. After a short hiatus from competition, in 2011 I entered the Asian-Canadian Talent Search where I placed 1st runner up.
In November of 2012, I was selected to represent Canada amongst 50 other international nations at the World Championships of Performing Arts to be held in Los Angeles, California this upcoming summer of 2013.
As a dedicated vocalist, I aspire to one-day make a career out of my musical abilities. Whether it be in production or performance, I intend to cherish and develop my gift of music.
