Jr. has a strong career ahead of him. He fits the term multi-dol perfectly, being good at not only singing and dancing, but also acting as well.
He starred in a few series already, but he has yet to find a series or a movie to star in that will really launch him as an actor. We hope that he finds his big acting break soon.
