Nograles apparently wants to try his luck in the music industry after posting three “blind audition” videos on TikTok.

The former Davao congressman recently showed off his singing chops as well as his playful side in his latest meme videos while having a downtime at work.

In the latest TikTok video, Nograles sang True Faith’s “Huwag Na Lang Kaya” in a faux audition tape at US talent show “The Voice.” The singing clip is spliced with the reaction video of “The Voice” judges who appear to be blown away by his musical talent. 

Another TikTok video showed Nograles singing OPM hit “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw.” This time, the video included edited shots from “The X-Factor” judges and audience cheering him on.

Nograles commented: “Hayaan niyo pong haranahin ko kayo ng isa na namang #OPM hit. Sinong naaalala mo tuwing naririnig ang kantang ito?”

In another “audition” tape, Nograles chose another OPM classic “Ikaw Lamang” to sing on TikTok. “Sobrang na-#LSS ako sa #OPM classic na to lately. Warming up lang ahead of a busy day #TGIF,” he said.

Back in April, the Palace official posted a TikTok video dancing to “Fight Song” to show support to health frontliners, which drew mixed reaction from viewers.

Nograles, rumored to run for public office next year, has more than 23,000 followers on TikTok.
