#Spotlight: Kyle Patrick
MANILA, Philippines - Kyle Patrick rose to fame in 2007 when he became the new vocalist of American pop band The Click Five, replacing Eric Dill who left the band in 2006. Other members of the band were fellow Berklee School of Music alumni Joe Guese, Ethan Mentzer, Ben Romans, and Joey Zehr.
On January 15, the band informed their fans on their Facebook page that they were parting ways "to focus on our individual endeavors."
Kyle is probably best remembered for the TC5 hit "Jenny" that brought him and the rest of the band to Asia in 2007 and 2008, including the Philippines.
In November 2012, Kyle returned to the Philippines as a solo artist, promoting his self-titled solo EP and his single "Go for Gold!" He also performed in the opening of the new Glorietta mall wing in an event dubbed "The Glorietta Vibe," where the Philippines broke the Guinness World Record for the most number of people walking on a catwalk.
Rappler caught up with Kyle before his performance, and he talked to us about The Click Five, running in marathons, and his attempts at eating balot.
Here are our other photos from that afternoon with Kyle:
