I’ve been busy the past few months pursuing my passion. I stumbled upon StarMaker four months ago. That time, I was grieving the passing away of my Nanay, and I really haven’t moved on up to now. I needed to find a good diversion to help me cope with her loss, so I turned to singing.
I love singing. I have loved it for the longest time but have forgotten all about it because I got busy with other things that didn’t really give me the happiness and satisfaction I’ve always searched for.
I started singing and uploading one song cover at StarMaker every day around mid-March. Two months after, I started collaborating with others (singing duets) and a short time afterwards joined my own StarMaker family. And just recently, July 15 to be exact, I started doing live singing!
How was my first live? It was exciting! Exhilarating to say the least! But it was also nerve-wracking! I was nervous when I sang my first few songs. I knew because my voice faltered a bit. But things got better after a while and soon enough, I was already enjoying it! To be honest, singing before an audience is actually my childhood dream.
I never got to join my father’s band gigs because I was too young then. My Tatay is a drummer, a self-taught musician. I got to sing in weddings for family and friends, though, and was even commissioned to sing the campaign jingle of a city councilor back when I was still part of the corporate world.
So yes, my first live singing at StarMaker was a memorable one for me. What made my first live even more unforgettable was the support of friends I met at StarMaker during our collabs. My two singing idols (Nek and Vin) were there , and my gorgeous sister from another StarMaker family (Lei) was also present to give moral support and send gifts (virtual gifts, that is).
I really couldn’t ask for anything more. I was beyond happy! I was ecstatic! If I could freeze a moment in my life so that I’d remember it forever, this would be it, my first live singing at StarMaker. I hope I’d get to perform more live singing and meet more kindhearted and supportive people in my newfound world.
