MANILA -- Things are looking up for Noven Belleza.
On Thursday, the "Tawag ng Tanghalan" grand champion has officially signed a recording contract with Star Music, which is another step closer towards his dream of being able to support his parents.
A rice farmer from Negros Occidental, Belleza said that he wants to provide for his family so that his parents can retire.
"Hindi na po sila nagtra-trabaho ng sobra sobra sa mga katawan nila dahil ngayon po ay natutulungan ko na sila," he said, adding that he will continue to work harder from here on out.
The details of his contract were not revealed, but it was earlier announced that he has an upcoming album under the label.
In addition to Belleza, Star Music also welcomed other "Tawag ng Tanghalan" finalists Marielle Montellano and Sam Mangubat.
Montellano said that she considers the opportunity a blessing, while Mangubat teased that he will be releasing a single soon.
