Pilipinas Got Talent Grand Champion Jovit Baldivino reveals a bit of his past while he faces some of his fears of the future.
Pilipinas Got Talent Champion Jovit Baldivino, who just turned 17 recently, shared that he is aware that puberty could still affect his singing voice but he is confident that it could also get better with continuous practice. "'rsquo;Pag bumaba po ang boses, gaganda naman po [dahil sa patuloy na pagkanta]. Nagbibinata din po ako. Kasi po lumalaki din ang boses ko."
The singer also downplayed claims that the quality of his voice has declined for supposedly drinking alcohol in the past. "'rsquo;Pag may mga birthday birthday do'rsquo;n (in his Batangas hometown) kumakanta po ako no'rsquo;n. Nakikihalubilo lang po, inaalok po ako, eh," Jovit admitted. He continued that he has no control over people'rsquo;s opinion about his past, and that his focus now is his present. "Ang masasabi ko lang, harapin na lang po natin ang [hinaharap] 'lsquo;wag na po nating ibalik 'lsquo;yung nakaraan kasi po hindi na po maibabalik 'lsquo;yon."
He explained that it is better that he talk about the issue to set the record straight and clarify claims that he used to drink a lot. "Ang pinagdaanan naman po malalaman at malalaman din po 'lsquo;yan, eh. Ako na po 'lsquo;yung nagsasabi, ayaw ko pong marinig sa iba na kung ano-ano pa po ang pinagsasabi na di ba po marami ang mali? Ako na po ang nagsasabi."
Asked about his greatest fear, the aspiring singer answered, "Kinatatakutan ko baka kinabukasan, isang araw, hindi na ako magustuhan [ng mga tao], so mas maganda 'lsquo;yung may pinag-aralan din." Jovit is hoping to go to college soon and take up Mechanical Engineering.
Since his victory in Pilipinas Got Talent last June, Jovit said that his life has taken a 180-degree turn but in a positive way because he can now support his family and send his four siblings to school.
Jovit is also coming up with his first major concert on November 13 at the Aliw Theater entitled Faithfully: A Night of Firsts.
