Darren Espanto serenades SM City Clark crowd

CLARK FREEPORT -- Total performer Darren Espanto serenaded the crowd at SM City Clark (SMCK) during the mall’s unveiling of its Christmas center piece.

Espanto sang Christmas songs delighting the guests including his fans during the lighting ceremonies of SMCK’s “Winter Woodland Forest” Christmas display on November 8.

Espanto rose to popularity after joining The Voice Philippines Kids Edition where he finished as a first runner-up.

Before Espanto’s performance, the grand display at SMCK was lit up by senior vice president Bien Mateo, SM Supermalls regional operations manager Andrea Madlangbayan, Angeles City Vice Mayor Vicky Vega-Cabigting, and Mabalacat City Vice Mayor Gerald Aquino.

The AUF Performing Arts gave life to popular Christmas songs through a song and dance number.

According to SM Supermalls regional operations manager Madlangbayan, the unveiling of the center piece marks the start of “Sparkling SMallidays” at SM Supermalls.

SMallidays is a combination of the words SM malls and holidays.

“This year, we bring you #SparklingSMallidays as we officially unwrap a host of fun-filled activities, dazzling displays, exciting deals, and thrilling surprises to light up the lives of everyone this holiday season,” Madlangbayan shared.

Lined-up activities for the SMallidays include a meet, greet, and photo-taking with SM Santa, writing letters to Santa through the #DearSMSanta mailbox which are stationed in select areas around the mall, or via the #DearSMSanta website (
