Puberty should have lowered his voice, but this kid is the exemption! His voice became deep but higher! Oh God, I can’t explain how this kid transformed from a boy to a teen but maintained his voice quality and makes it even better! Darren Espanto’s rendition of Chandelier is the best rendition I’ve ever heard… Way better than the original. Sorry, but Sia should be proud of this! He’s only 14 and wow… He can surpass many established singers in PH, just watch! This kid is the future of OPM!While another YouTube user said the reasons why Darren nailed the song:
1. He sang it with feelings.
2. His diction is proper.

4. He’s sitting and effortlessly singing.
5. He sang this live. No recordings. No edits.
