As the son of Bert Nievera, who was best known as Johnny Mathis of the Philippines and as a member of the popular Hawaiian band “The Society of Seven,” Nievera grew up singing and dreaming of becoming a renowned singer. In 1979, a year before Nievera graduated high school in Concord, Calif., he became one of 25 children chosen to sing in a choir that backed up for Barry Manilow at the Concord Pavilion. Since this performance, Nievera has worked toward making his dreams come true, and today continues to dazzle crowds in stadiums and casino showrooms, selling out shows around the world with his diverse repertoire.
Throughout his career, Nievera has released several albums, including “Martin…Take One,” “The Best Gift,” “Forever,” “Chasing Time,” “Unforgettable” and “Milestones.” Nievera has produced top-selling albums, with 18 platinum, five double platinum, three triple platinum and one quadruple platinum.
Nievera was one of four celebrity judges during the first season of “The X Factor Philippines,” and is the host of “A.S.A.P,” a musical variety show in the Philippines. He has appeared in numerous films and television series and specials, including “Penthouse Live!,” “Martin and Pops Twogether” and “Martin After Dark.”
In “Martin Nievera: A Holiday Show,” the singer-songwriter will perform a mix of beloved holiday songs and his own hits, including movie and soap opera theme songs and his own adaptations from Broadway to Bublé.
