Filipino-American Jason Farol is from Torrance, California, a true-blue Pinoy-at-heart is reconnecting with his roots in the Philippines with the release his self-titled debut album. Manila’s first introduction to Jason Farol would be through two of his songs from his album, the power ballad “I Believe In Love Again,” and the OPM song “Kung Ikaw At Ako.”

Our ‘catchiest’ part of the song is when Jason belts out the chorus “I’ll give you all of me and more, And though you’ve heard it all before, I fall into your eyes and then, I believe in love again…” Sounds like Jason is ready to love again after a difficult breakup. There’s no denying the expressiveness of Jason Farol’s vocals. Music video below courtesy of vivamusicgroup1.
