Born in the Philippines, JM Bales was three years old when his dad first noticed his gift in singing.
He started joining different kinds of amateur singing contests when he was only 7 years old. As he was getting older he had decided to join "Wish 107.5" and was given a chance to represent his hometown, Iloilo City. Later on, he joined Tawag Ng Tanghalan at "It's Showtime" and was declared as a "Five-time Defending Champion" where he received the award "Madlang People's Choice" in 2018. With JM's determination and patience, he recently got his first hit singing the "Magandang Dilag" song that was played at Miss Universe Philippines during the swimsuit round and everyone loved it! He's now enjoying his life with his love for music.
