Mark Bautista Photo Gallery

Tags: Philippine Actor. Philippine Singer.

Mark Bautista, one of the most sought after male balladeers nowadays, was born in August 10, 1983. He grew up in Cagayan De Oro City, Philippines with his loving parents Darni & Susan Bautista. Together with his older brother and sister and his 2 younger brothers.


As a kid, Mark was not always the total entertainer that he is right now. He was said to be very shy, despite the fact that he is blessed with a beautiful voice and his killer looks. Mark’s confidence began growing once he started joining different oratorical competitions. He even bagged the first prize in some of the oratorical competitions he joined in.

Mark was determined to help his family when his father was forced to stop working because of his physical condition. Mark wholeheartedly gave his prize money from different oratorical contests he won and even from some of his singing stints to help their financial status. He started singing publicly when he was in high school. To overcome Mark’s stage freight he would put a coin under his foot to channel all the nervousness and negative energy to the coin, thus leaving his confidence and showmanship. He joined a boy band called Voizemale. They performed at the “warehouse”, a bar in CDO City. The group performed songs from Earth Wind & Fire to current hits at that time like Backstreet Boys etc.


Mark was persuaded to audition for a singing contest in ABS-CBN’s MTB. Unfortunately, it wasn’t his time to be discovered yet. He continued polishing his craft by singing with his group.

Another opportunity knocked on Mark’s door. It was an audition for a singing contest called “Star For A Night” hosted by Ms. Regine Velasquez. The auditions were being held in Cebu. Money was an issue at that time so Mark thought he was going to miss this big opportunity. Mommy Susan provided Mark with money to go to Cebu as a birthday gift. To go further in the competition, Mark had to go to Manila and finish the remaining levels of the audition process. He hitched in a cargo ship in able to reach Manila in time for the auditions. As Mark recalls "A few days after the audition, we were supposed to go back to the province on the same cargo ship we took coming here, when Viva called me," recalls Mark. "I thought they were going to tell me that I passed the auditions, but instead they asked if I was interested in joining a boyband."



He passed all three levels of the Star For A Night auditions and made it to the grand finals. "I can never forget that experience. That, plus the exposure, was enough to make me happy. I got my 15 minutes of fame, then I found out that Viva had other plans for me. Kaya malaki talaga ang pasasalamat ko sa 'Star For A Night'."

As of now, Mark is not only one of the hottest singing sensations but he is also becoming an in demand multimedia star. He is a mainstay in ASAP 05; he also hosts the Search For The Star In A Million (season 1 and season 2) with his fellow champions. He has endorsements, concerts, TV shows, and movies.



His CD-Lite “Dream On” was released last September 2005, the carrier single of that CD scored Mark his first #1 hit. “I Need You” was in the MYX Daily Top 10 for two months (top 5 for more than a month and the top spot 5 times) competing neck to neck with Hale and Cueshe. Mark also took his image to a different level in this release, the photo shoot for dream on was more revealing compared to his debut album. Due to the success of the cd-lite, Viva Records released a full album called Dream On Expanded along with the release of You Win The Game music video which featured a very daring Mark. The song reached the top spot in MYX in less than a week after it premiered.

On March 24, 2006, another milestone in Mark's career happened. Mark's first solo major concert was staged at Aliw Theater dubbed as Pop Heartthrob. The venue was packed with his legions of fans that came from all over the Philippines and from other countries as well. Mark is currently working on his 3rd studio album from Viva Records as of the moment.

I've started watching you before with Sarah (Princess), since then I love to watch you . I've watched you every weekend when you were at the Singing Bee. I love the way you are you seems not mayabang not like all guys that you work with, they think they're cute but they are not and then they are mayabang. You just simple kind of person, that's why your my IDOL. I hope to see you at your concert at Redwood City California. I love to see you having a movie with Sarah again, but I don't like to see Sarah's movie with John Lloyd. Anyway keep it up na simply kalang. myr from USA

  17. When i watched his life story in MMK, i started liking and admiring him for his talents and the kind of love and devotion he has for his family.I will never forget the moment i met and talked to him in person through his album tour.this guy is really nice and very approachable.He loves his fans so much.when I learned from my student who happens to be his churchmate that this guy is a faithful church goer,lalo ko siyang hinangaan. All the best for your career Mark!may your God given talents glorify our Lord!
