Sam Mangubat is a Filipino singer and songwriter. He gained significant popularity when he participated in the first season of Tawag ng Tanghalan of the noontime television show It's Showtime, a singing competition broadcast on ABS-CBN, and becoming its first runner-up. We like to call him a certified star in the Philippines, where he has toured extensively.
Mangubat started out as a freelance photographer and videographer. During this period, he began creating and uploading cover songs on YouTube, ReverbNation, and SoundCloud. As he kept uploading more cover performances, he gradually gained followers and eventually got discovered by several companies such as a Karaoke company.
Mangubat has also cowritten original songs for several albums, directed commercial music videos such as Kris Angelica's debut single "Nasaan Ka Na" (which he also wrote), recorded and directed several jingles and television ads.
In early 2015, Mangubat became one of the regular performers in Club Se7en in Dubai, U.A.E.
Due in part to the popularity of some of his covers in his YouTube channel, Sam was featured on several television programs such as CgeTV In da Loop and ASAP, both broadcast on ABS-CBN. This growing online visibility also prompted him to self-produce a demo album titled Strong Inside, which includes original compositions. The album was introduced on shows like Rise and Shine broadcast on UNTV and Tambalan sa DZRH News Television.
Mangubat's YouTube channel has already gained a total of over 125 million number of views and over 750 thousand subscribers.
Sam Mangubat offers 2 different 45 minutes shows. He can perform in English, Mandarin and Tagalog.
Both shows are available with backing tracks or with charts to be backed with the house band, if available.
