The Perkins twins are SM Youth’s new music ambassadors

What’s better than one talented singer? Twin musical talents, that is. 

Jesse and Christian Perkins are young revelations rapidly marking their territory on the local music scene, and as SM Youth’s newest musical ambassadors. Twin talents in the industry aren’t often to come by, but don’t think their rarity stops there. The pair—born in the Philippines and raised in California—possesses a unique set of talents that make them a potential force to be reckoned with as local music savants. Now that they’ve set up their home base in the Philippines, they’re on a tour of the islands under the SM Youth banner.

Jesse and Christian Perkins were born in San Juan to an American father and Filipino mother. Settling in Menlo, California, the twins are athletic and academic superstars, even bagging college scholarships to one of the most prestigious universities in the United States.

It was after a Philippine TV interview that the twins decided to pursue their love for music in the country, as they were found to possess an unmistakable talent for singing and playing instruments. While singer-musicians aren’t uncommon in the country, the Perkins Twins are an even more complete package: as songwriters themselves, they pen their own music and even choreograph their own tunes. Talk about performance level—the Perkins Twins are the perfect duo to perform for and represent SM Youth’s thousands of followers.

The Perkins Twins, together with their family, have always championed social advocacies and choose to work with positive brands and organizations. They are celebrity ambassadors of World Vision Philippines, tagged as The Voices of Human Trafficking for NGO Global Impact Philippines, and actively work with the Department of Education (DepEd) as Ambassadors for Anti-Drugs, Anti-Drinking, Anti-Smoking, Anti-Bullying and Purity. The twins have also volunteered at Smokey Mountain and worked with the Bob Tebow Foundation and Kids International.

SM Youth has always championed the vibrant Filipino youth culture. With the hottest young names as the brand’s key faces, a viral model search that revealed the best untapped modeling talent in the country, and a slew of musical ambassadors that preceded the Perkins Twins, the brand has proven to be the best platform where the Perkins twins could present their talent to the country. After all, SM Youth has proven that it is more than just a fashion brand: along with great style, the youth culture values creativity, talent and self-expression just as much.
