Marcelito "Lito" Pomoy (born September 22, 1984) is a Filipino singer, known for his ability to sing in both tenor and soprano. He is the grand winner of the second season of Pilipinas Got Talent.[1][2]

The singer's higher-pitched "female" voice is praised by critics, though his flawed diction and propensity for technical errors have left reviewers less impressed.[3]

Early life and career[edit]

Pomoy was born in Imus, Cavite and raised in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur. When he was young, his father was incarcerated while his mother left him alone with his younger sibling and went to Manila. He was later adopted by a police officer and did odd jobs when he was a teenager. Later on, both his biological father and mother had separate families on their own. Pomoy had discovered a talent of his while doing a poultry work: singing in both a male tenor voice and a strikingly convincing female soprano voice. This talent of his paved the way for him to join different contests in both the amateur and professional leagues. He tried his luck in Talentadong Pinoy, but didn't make it. He later joined the second season of Pilipinas Got Talent, and made the cut.

At the course of his PGT stint, he was able to fulfill his lifelong dream to reunite with his family.

Pomoy makes regular appearances on ASAP, and his first studio album, entitled Duet Yourself, was released in 2011 under Star Records.

Personal life[edit]

On September 21, 2014, Pomoy married Joan Paraiso.[4]
