WHAT THIS GENERATION SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR THIS YEAR!
Fernando Tan a.k.a. Fern. is a 17-year-old singer/songwriter/producer whose self-discovery of his musical talent began at the young age of twelve. He was first a lead vocalist-guitarist for a band but his craft grew wider and deeper with his newfound knowledge of producing. His learning proved fruitful when he was tapped with a great opportunity to co-write and co-produce Claudia Barretto’s successful single “You.”
With a multitude of original songs written, one might ask where a young boy of seventeen draws inspiration from. “I haven’t experienced much of the world. Usually I use films for inspiration.”
His ability to empathize is what he wishes to be known for, beyond just the sound of his music. The essence of his craft is to let people realize what they are going through. “I want my music to speak for the people who can’t speak up.”
When asked about the story behind his debut single entitled “Into You”, “It’s a metaphor for something,” he answered. “I don’t want my mom to know.”

At 18 years old, Janina Vela’s achievements as a YouTuber and social media personality goes far beyond what is imaginable for a girl her age.
With various awards and recognition, Janina is now ready to challenge herself with a new path in her career, this time as a musician.“My biggest goal as a musician is to create songs that people can relate to and share parts of my life that I’ve never shared before,” she said.
She wrote her debut single, “Hesitate,” as an anthem for those whose hearts have been broken and crippled by fear of being burned again. “It’s probably been everyone’s story at one point or another.” The single reached Top 5 of Spotify’s Top 50 Viral Chart!
With a following that can only grow from this point on, Janina’s passion remains the same, and that is to be a positive influence to her generation, to inspire them to be confident in their own skin and encourage them to be beautiful inside out.
