“Practice makes perfect.” As cliché as this catchphrase may sound these words have always rung true for Pop Icon contender Edgar ‘Ed’ Dela Torre Miranda. Ed Miranda also dubbed as “The Star Balladeer” has always lived by this line and for him he should not stop until he believes he has perfected whatever it is he is putting his energy into especially in his craft – his singing ability. 29-year old Ed who works in Sales for upper end supermarket chain Danube is not inexperienced in the field of singing and singing contests as he has previously qualified as finalist in JPOP Season 2, an experience he vowed to use to his advantage in future. And such future is here – only a few months after he again made it as Finalist in Jeddah Pop Icon Season 4 to sing it off with other talented artists. Musicality-wise he is into ballads singing popular solos by his favourite Gary Valenciano. He also loves the gorgeous voice of La Diva Jonalyn Viray. With talent and pop star factor in hand Edgar is more than ready to conquer the Pop Icon stage.
