Jason James Dy (born June 19, 1990), also known as Jason Dy, is a Filipino singer/songwriter. He rose to fame after joining and eventually winning the second season of The Voice of the Philippines.

Upon winning the said singing competition, Dy won a recording contract with MCA Music Inc. (Philippines), a Universal Music Group company in 2015. Afterwards, a self-titled studio album was produced and released last September 4, 2015 with the hit singles like 'Caught In That Feeling', 'Milagro', and 'Walang Iwanan'. After the album's huge success, a deluxe version of it was then released last October 2016 featuring songs of his own composition. Referred to as 'The Voice of RnB", Dy continues to leave his mark in the music industry as one of the finest RnB singers.


Early life and education[edit]

Jason Dy was born on June 19, 1990 in Cebu City, Philippines but was raised by his parents in Butuan City. In 2003, his parents separated; they were granted an annulment in 2014. Jason lived with his mother until she needed to leave for Singapore to find work. He finished High School at Father Saturnino Urios University.[1]

To support himself, Dy started working as a "haranista". He serenades women in different places of their boyfriends or suitors.[2] He also recorded demo tracks, including the original soundtrack of the 2013 film Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?, which was re-recorded by Xian Lim for his XL2 album, as well as "Kontrabida" and "Nasa 'Yo Na Ang Lahat" by Sam Concepcion and Daniel Padilla, respectively.[1] He also uploaded covers on YouTube as a hobby, composing an original song entitled "2 Have U".[3]

Music career[edit]

2014–present: The Voice of the Philippines[edit]

During the second-season auditions for ABS-CBN's The Voice of the Philippines, which aired on November 9, 2014, Dy performed Sam Smith's "Stay with Me".[4] Coaches Sarah Geronimo, Lea Salonga, and Apl.de.ap all pressed their buttons for him, stating that he was able to bring out the emotion of the song through his falsetto skills. Although Bamboo Manalac did not turn for him, Manalac expressed that it "was a great performance". Dy eventually chose Geronimo to coach him, as he believed that she would be able to help him have a place in the music industry.[5]

Dy advanced to the finals after winning against Monique Lualhati during the two-part semi-finals stage live at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila. He received both the highest votes given by his coach and the viewers' text votes, totaling 60.10% of the combined votes.[6] He then performed a duet with Charice during the first set of the finals night, singing the song "Wrecking Ball", and later sang "With You" for his solo performance. Both songs received praises from the coaches. Apl.de.ap commented, "Amazing job, you have grown so much in this competition. I've seen you dance, do all kinds of different things. Congratulations with that performance".[7]

Along with Alisah Bonaobra, Dy advanced to the second round on the second night of the finale after garnering one of the two highest votes from the public. Subsequently, he won against Bonaobra, receiving 52.94% of the text votes, not including the votes from the first round. He was proclaimed the winner at the end of the competition, winning 2 million pesos, a house and lot from Camella Homes, and a recording and managing contract with MCA Music, among other prizes.[8] His winning song, "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin", received praises from his coach, Geronimo, who commented, "That is Jason, that is special about Jason. He is the voice of today, he is a world-class talent, and his voice deserves to be heard all over the world".[9] Coincidentally, both Dy and Geronimo became champions on the same day, March 1.[10]
