Khalil told us that the music he really loves is more of the rock, and grunge-y, and so he was just going back to what he really loved.

Khalil Ramos, on the other hand, placed second in ABS CBN’s reality show Pilipinas Got Talent when he was only a teenager. From then on, he was known in the music industry and in show business at the same time. And despite starring in teleseryes and films, he never let go of his passion and love for music.
We [December Avenue] were coming from the same perspective that it was a challenge, but let’s keep if free-flowing. It was crazy but a super good experience, a reaffirmation of what I’ve been waiting for.
