Panelo could give Martin Nievera a run for his money! Duterte’s legal counsel is also a crooner
Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo may be known as one of the brightest lawyers in the country, but he’s also an excellent singer, too.
Panelo’s singing prowess was revealed by Philippine Daily Inquirer lifestyle columnist George Sison Wednesday (Jan. 4) as he recalled how the administration official serenaded guests at the dinner party for former Ilocos Sur governor Luis “Chavit” Singson last December.
“Someone remarked that Sal could probably have given Martin Nievera a run for his money if he had decided to become a professional singer rather than a lawyer,” Sison said.
Aside from singing popular hits, Panelo sang one of original ompositions, surprising several guests who were clueless that he also writes songs.
He also belted out some tunes with celebrity performers Vina Morales and Pops Fernandez.
