Jovit Lasin Baldivino (October 16, 1993 – December 9, 2022) was a Filipino singer and actor. He was the first winner of the reality talent competition show Pilipinas Got Talent in 2010.[1]

Early life[edit]

Jovit Lasin Baldivino was born on October 16, 1993, to Hilario and Cristeta Baldivino. He came from a poor family living in Batangas. He had four siblings, one of whom died in March 2020.[2][3][4][5] He used to sell siomai at a market after school to sustain his studies and help his family.[3]


Baldivino would sing as a guest at birthday parties. In 2010, he joined the first season of the multi-talent game show Pilipinas Got Talent as a singer, with the intention to use prize money to help deliver his family out of poverty. At that time, he was a high school student, both of his parents were jobless, and his father was recovering from tuberculosis. He won the grand final of the talent competition by performing a cover of "Too Much Love Will Kill You" by Queen.[5] He was later named the "Promising Recording/Performer Artist of the Year" at the 2011 Box Office Entertainment Awards.[6]

After his success at Pilipinas Got Talent, he went on to release his own albums. Among his songs are "Pusong Bato" and "Ika'y Mahal Pa Rin".[7] "Ika'y Mahal Pa Rin" was originally sung by band Rockstar 2 and composed by Vehnee Saturno, which was the theme song of ABS-CBN's television series Angelito: Batang Ama (including its sequel Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto), while "Pusong Bato" was originally composed and performed by Renee dela Rosa and his band Alon, which was included as part of the soundtrack for fellow ABS-CBN television series Juan dela Cruz.[8] Other songs he covered include "Faithfully" by Journey and "Always" by Bon Jovi.[9]

His final television appearance would be as a contestant for Team Fourda Win on the November 28, 2022, episode of GMA's Family Feud.[10][11]

Personal life[edit]

Baldivino pursued a degree in criminology at the Batangas State University. He wanted to be a lawyer just like his godfather.[12][13]

Baldivino fathered a daughter with his girlfriend Laurice Khaye Bermillo.[14][15] After separating from Bermillo, Baldivino entered into a relationship with Shara Chavez which lasted from September 2015 to February 2017.[16] They had a daughter from whom Baldivino became estranged after the couple broke up.[14] Prior to his death, he was engaged to Camille Ann Miguel.[4]


On December 3, 2022, Baldivino was rushed to the Jesus of Nazareth Hospital in Batangas City after he experienced difficulty of breathing after performing a song during a Christmas party.[7] He subsequently suffered a mild hemorrhagic stroke, and fell into a coma after an operation. He never regained consciousness and eventually died due to a brain aneurysm on December 9, 2022.[17][18] He was laid to rest beside the grave of his younger brother, Justine, on December 14 at the Paradise View Memorial Garden in Padre Garcia, Batangas.[19] He was 29 years old.[7]
