Celebrities, fans join singer Jovit Baldivino’s burial today


CELEBRITIES AND FANS joined the burial of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ season 1 grand winner Jovit Baldivino, this morning of December 14, 2022, at the Paradise View Memorial Gardens in Batangas.

Baldivino died of an aneurysm at the young age of 29. Prior to his death the singer from Batangas was comatose for 5 days, according to his medical bulletin.

His wife, Camille Ann Miguel according to reports, still cannot accept the fact that her husband is no longer with her this Christmas and the coming New Year.

In her Facebook post she said: “Hindi pa ako handa para mamaya [referring to the burial] . Paano tanggapin na eto na ang huling araw na makakasama ka namin Love ko.”  

Camille has difficulties accepting the fact that Jovit Baldivino, who is at the height of his career, is now gone.



Jovit was already gifted with an amazing voice even when he was a teenager.

He recalled in an interview with KAMI a few years ago that as a singer at a younger age, he joined singing contests in their hometown in Batangas.

There were also times that Baldivino would travel to places only to participate in barangay fiesta’s singing contests. Most of the time he failed to win in those music competitions.

Aside from joining contests in far flung barangays in Batangas, Baldivino also sidelines as a siomai vendor.

He was very proud of himself, helping the family survive the crisis by selling siomai while schooling as a high school student.

“Nagbebenta po ako ng siomai pag walang pasok para makatulong sa mga magulang ko,” Baldivino told the judges during an interview portion.

In 2010, Baldivino’s family, who were very supportive of his career in singing, invited him to try his luck in Abs Cbn’s “Pilipinas Got Talent.” It was the first edition of PGT after the country’s television giant Abs Cbn got the franchise of the singing reality show.

Baldivino, who was a shy type, hesitated to join PGT. But the constant motivation of the family and his dream to become a professional musician propelled him to finally decide to join PGT.

He said he even borrowed his bus fare from friends and relatives who believe in his talent. “Kasya lang po talaga para pamasahe at pangkain ang nahiram kong pera.

“Sa second day na po ako natawag at pinakanta at mayrong 3,000 plus contestants. Grabe ang dami talaga namin. Instead na matakot ako dahil kilala ko na ang mga nagpa audition. Sila po yung nagwagi ng first, second and third place winners,” he recalled.

Baldivino said after he was done with the audition, the staff just told him that he would call Baldivino for the next round of the competition if he passed the audition.

“Dumating napo ako ng tatlong buwan sa kahihintay pero walang tumawag sakin kaya nawalan napo ako ng pag asa na makasali pa sa PGT. Hanggang sa may tumawag na at nagsabing nakapasa po ako sa pagsubok at isasalang na sa pangalawang round.” Doon na nabuhay muli ang pangarap na balang araw ako ay makilala sa larangan ng pag awit.”

To make the story short, Jovit Baldivino’s signature songs “Carrie,” “Faithfully” by Journey, and “Too Much Love Will Kill You” propelled him to greatness.

He won the competition as a grand champion and grabbed the P2 Million Prize money.
