Former ‘May Bukas Pa’ star Zaijian Jaranilla takes on the challenging role of Carl, the ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan’ blind contestant in the New Year’s Eve special of ‘MMK.’
Before being known as the ‘Blind Balladeer of Bacolod,’ Carl (Zaijian) had already fallen in love with music. At a young age, he knew that he had a great voice that dared him to dream to become a famous singer someday.
However, it was not an easy road for him since any opportunity that knocked upon him fell short of his hopes.
Unluckily, while trying to pursue a singing career, he got used by others for money. Subsequently, Carl began to lose his will to dream and succeed in singing.
How did he regain his passion for singing that led him to the ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan’ stage?

ZAIJIAN GAGANAP BILANG BULAG NA MANG-AAWIT SA “MMK”
Gaganap bilang bulag na contestant sa ‘Tawag ng Tangahalan’ ang dating ‘May Bukas Pa’ star na si Zaijian Jaranilla sa handog ng “MMK” ngayong New Year’s Eve.
Bago pa siya makilala bilang “Blind Balladeer of Bacolod,” nasa puso na ni Carl (Zaijian) ang musika. Bata pa lamang, alam na niya ang taglay niyang galing sa pagkanta, kaya nangarap siyang maging isang sikat na mang-aawit balang araw.
Ngunit hindi ito naging madali para sa kanya, dahik sa tuwing may oportunidad na dumating ay palagi siya bigo.
Ang pagkanta rin niya ang naging sanhi kung bakit nagagamit at naloloko siya ng mga tao lalo na sa pera. Dahil dito, unti-unti nang nawawalan ng pag-asa si Carl na ipagpatuloy ang kanyang pangarap.
Paano kaya nanumbalik ang pagmamahal ni Carl sa pagkanta na siyang nagdala sa kanya sa entablado ng ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan?’
