Nagpatikim si GJ tungkol sa kanyang single.
Lahad ng binatilyo, “Crush Back is a song about a person who likes someone so much and wishes that person to like him back po. The song was composed by my Kuyas Patrick Mark Armada and Jhonatan Padit. Music by Kuya Elmer Jan Bolano who also did “Nung Tayo Pa” ni Janella Salvador and “Laon Ako” ni Kakai Bautista. Both songs are entries in song writing compositions.”
Nagsimula siyang magkaroon ng hilig sa pagkanta sa murang edad na four. Nagpakita siya ang husay sa WCOPA nang sumabak siya rito noong year 2017.
“To sum it up I have two Grand Champion awards and three First runner-up. I stop joining our music fest after I competed in WCOPA in 2017 as per advise of my parents and adviser.
“My best performance sa aking career so far is when I competed internationally at the 21st Annual World Championships of Performing Arts back in 2017 in Los Angeles, USA where I bagged four medals, three silver medals and one bronze.”
Sino ang kanyang musical influences, local and foreign? “My musical influences are varied. Sa local, si Kuya Jed Madela and the one and only Ms. Lea Salonga. Sa foreign naman po, there’s Boy Pablo and Billie Eilish po.”
Nabanggit din ni GJ ang mga artist na wish niyang sundan ang yapak.
Aniya, “Aside po from Kuya Jed Madela. I wish to become like Gary Valenciano who could sing and dance at the same time. I love his energy.”
Nasabi rin niya kung paano nila planong i-promote ang kanyang single. “Since pandemic po at limitado po ang galaw natin, ang promotion ng single ko is via online…through my social media accounts and siyempre some well meaning friends na sumusuporta po sa akin, katulad po ninyo.”
Ano ang wish niyang mangyari sa kanyang career?
“I wish I could have the staying power of our music icons like Gary V. and Martin Nievera, despite their age nandiyan pa rin sila performing and entertaining us,” saad pa ni GJ.
