I am Zacarias
(ZA-KUH-RA-YUS). I’m a Philippine-born Canadian singer, songwriter and producer from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Manila, Philippines. As young musician and dancer, I performed at local variety shows. Soon, my family moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and there developed singing and playing ability on several instruments for nine years. This is where my love for music began through Musiq Soulchild and The Neptunes. It was in Calgary where I discovered my ability as a songwriter and producer. There, I worked as a singer-songwriter, wedding singer, and producer on several genres of music. And it was during these formative years that I came to realize my mission.
I believe in love and its power. I seek to spread the power of love into people’s hearts and create music that tells this message and my story. To put it simply, I want to share this through music because of how it has changed my life. This means giving people moments to reflect on, feelings to go back to, memories to cherish forever, and the ability to make positive change in their lives.
