Known as Alvin Tan to most, Nick Vera Perez (NVP) was coined to create a character suited to entertainment. NVP began singing at the age of three where he performed at a local restaurant called Ngo Hiong House and Native Foods, in Jolo, Sulu, Philippines. Born fourth out of five siblings, NVP was raised by Pastor Philip Tan, Sr., a father who serviced Christianity as a Pastor despite his Moslem and Chinese blood combination, and by Visitacion Tan, a loving mother whose ancestry stems back from Madrid, Spain and Amoy, China combined. NVP has three other brothers namely, Norman Tan, BSN, with two lovely kids, Nyles and Jacob; Nelson Tan, MD, married to Marie Fe Corpuz Tan, with four kids, Shannen Kirstie, Kenneth Philson, Sean Kyle, and Kamylle Paula; and the new US immigrant Engineer Philip Tan, Jr., married to Michele Marie Burgos Tan, with two kids; Nadine Ysabelle and Alyssa Gillian. An excelling student, he maintained a FULL scholarship in elementary school, he graduated salutatorian and valedictorian respectively from Notre Dame High School for Boys. NVP represented Notre Dame for Math Olympiad 1989, where he competed for Geometry all over the Philippines. He finished bachelor’s degree in Nursing at the University of Santo Tomas in 1994.

Nick Vera Perez started competing SOLO singing from Elementary until College where he always landed first place. NVP won the UST songfest in Nursing and awarded Center for POP Music scholarship where he pursued and finished the program in Performing Arts and Stage Presentation with flying colors. He competed in the Search for Manila representative for the Pan-Philippines; he took the Gold belt and fought for the title Pan-Philippines Championship in Solo-Singing in 1991. Rendering the famous gospel song “UPON this Rock” by Sandi Patty in a male NVP typical version, he took home the first place for Manila, Philippines and won all other categories as FIRST PLACE in all singing competitions including, DUET (with Michelle Tarrazona for the song “More Than Wonderful” by Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris), TRIO (with Michele Tarrazona and Denise Tarrazona for the song “In His Love” by Sandi Patty), All-Male Quartet (with Alex A, Mars Majarucon and Jeffrey Castillo for the song “This is The Day”). The competition was a meet throughout Philippines and was held in Zamboanga City. In 1993, NVP won the UST Nursing Solo Competition First Place, where he performed Jun Polistico’s undying “Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas,” a ballad rendition which awed even former Senator Ernie Maceda from the audience that gave him a standing ovation. Hosting events, Mastering of Ceremonies, Leading a seminar, Public Speaking, Declaiming, Orating, Ballroom, Hip-Hop and RNB dancing are some of his sharpest talents. NVP enjoys the stage like no other as he wows the crowds.

A Ballroom Dancing graduate from Makati Ballroom Dance School, NVP is one of the mostsought- after ballroom dance instructors in Manila from 1994–2002. He shows fluidity, calm and realistic showmanship in dancing and details in his instructional dancing.

He was one of the TOP ballroom dance instructors from 1995–2002 and has guested in TV shows, mall tours and club performances. A Jack of all trades, BUT MASTER of everything, he surely is. An event wise man once said, “Everything is all about the host. When Nick comes to the stage, the world stops and dances with him.” NVP loves to see people smile and loves the camera. When everyone else fears the stage and the microphone, NVP is a real natural in entertainment and show business.
