'Pilipinas Got Talent' finalist Sherwin Baguion thanks ABS-CBN for making him a part of the 'Pinoy You Got It' album and its nationwide tour.
Pilipinas Got Talent finalist Sherwin Baguion still could not believe that he is now living his dream of being a recording artist. The newbie singer who shot to fame as a finalist in Pilipinas Got Talent said he didn’t expect that an offer would still come although he didn’t win in the competition. “Hindi ko talaga inasahan na mabibigyan pa rin ako ng chance na makapag-record ng kanta. Siyempre akala ko si Jovit (Baldivino) lang ang magkakaroon nun kasi siya ang Grand Winner. Kaya sobrang thankful ako sa ABS-CBN, Star Records, at Sony [Music] na napili kami na magkaroon ng separate na album.”
The Pinoy You Got It album also features other PGT finalists Markki Stroem and the Ezra Band. In this CD, Sherwin recorded his rendition of the Gary Valenciano songs “Kailangan Kita” and “Tayong Dalawa,” both of which he performed in PGT, plus an original composition entitled “Bakit Hindi Mo Na Kaya?” Sherwin shared the odd feeling he got when he first stepped inside the recording studio for the making of the album. “Noon pinapangarap ko lang kung ano ang hitsura ng isang recording studio. Kaya hindi ako makapaniwala nung makapasok ako. Nakakakaba talaga. Buti na lang tinulungan ako ni Mr. Vehnee Saturno sa tamang pagkanta, kung paano ‘yung tamang feelings.”
The young probinsyano is also overwhelmed by the popularity that PGT has brought him. Sherwin said he is flattered whenever someone would approach him and ask for a picture or an autograph. “Naninibago po kami kasi parang biglaan ang lahat. Dati pangarap lang lahat ng ito, pero ngayon nandito na kami. Hinahanda na po namin ‘yung sarili naming makasabay sa buhay celebrity. Masaya kami na may mga nagpapa-picture sa amin, lahat gusto naming mapagbigyan.”
Sherwin hopes that with the showbiz opportunities that will come his way, he will be able to help his family. He and his father both auditioned for PGT, but it was only Sherwin who made it to the final twelve. Sherwin said he misses having his father around now that he is beginning to become busy with showbiz. “Nakaka-miss kasi nasa probinsya na siya ngayon. First time sa buong buhay ko na mapahiwalay nang matagal sa kanya. Since bata pa ako, lagi niya akong sinasamahan sa lahat ng sinasalihan kong contest. Sobrang nami-miss ko ‘yung lagi ko siyang kasama.”
Aside from singing, Sherwin revealed that he is also open to trying other fields in showbiz. “Isang bagay na napapansin kong gusto ko at napapansin din ng mga friends ko na magaling ako is hosting. Pero kahit anong trabaho po ang ibigay sa akin ng ABS-CBN, gagawin ko po at ibibigay ko ‘yung best ko. Minsan nagbibiruan kami ni Markki na gusto naming maging next host ng Pilipinas Got Talent. Mga reality talent competition parang gusto kong i-try.”
If he will be given the chance to act, he said he wants to be paired with Bea Alonzo. “Ang galing talaga niya umarte. Humahanga ako sa kanya,” he said. Sherwin is also looking forward to doing a song number with his idols Christian Bautista, Martin Nievera, and Gary Valenciano.
