MANILA -- Former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Bailey May is officially part of the global pop group Now United, which was formed by Simon Fuller who famously created the reality TV phenomenon "American Idol" and managed the career of the Spice Girls.
The confirmation was made on Thursday via Now United's Instagram account.
Last September, May, who is being co-managed by ABS-CBN, posted a photo on Instagram that seems to suggest that he passed the audition for Now United.
According to its official teaser, Now United is "a new interactive pop group for new generation" composed of "incredible young performers from all over the world."
May is the 11th artist who was revealed to be part of Now United.
The other 10 performers who are part of the 14-member group are Lamar from United Kingdom, Josh from Canada, Shivani from India, Heyoon from South Korea, Any from Brazil, Hina from Japan, Noah from USA, Diarra from Senegal, Joalin from Finland and Sofya from Russia.
May, who is half-British, first became known on the Internet after covering Filipino songs of artists such as Daniel Padilla.
