Jed Madela defends Angeline Quinto from her critics


032411-jed_main.jpgShortly after being compared with Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo, Star Power grand winner Angeline Quinto is now being criticized supposedly for singing out of tune during her duet with Jed Madela on ASAP Rocks last March 20. Jed, however, was quick to defend the rising singer on this issue. “Hindi naman kasi siya nasintunado e. I think it was more of na-overwhelm talaga siya with the production number. Because the arrangement, which was done by Homer Flores, was very beautiful. Plus yung suporta ng fans niya, sobrang lakas ng sigaw nilang lahat, showing their support for Angeline. Probably siguro it was a mix of emotions kaya medyo na-overhelm kaming dalawa sa performance namin,” he began.

Angeline’s online haters had a field day over her blunder and they kept on saying that she doesn’t deserve her Star Power win after all. But Jed said that it would be wrong not to give Angeline a chance since she’s truly a talented singer. “Nangyayari naman [na magkakamali ka sa pagkanta] and it was not bad. It was not something na sasabihin ng mga tao, ‘Ay wala na, wala na talagang chance,’ because she’s a talented singer, she’s a very good performer. And what I really admire about her is that she has a very good heart. Sobrang bait at humble niya. Kahit siya pinakananalo, wala talagang traces of yabang kahit konti.

Jed also confirmed that he hugged Angeline after their performance to assure her that she did well. “I did. I already felt na she was overwhelmed. Kahit ako, sa sigaw ng mga tao mapi-feel mo talaga yung suporta sa kanya. I just had to really hug her and congratulate her for her number. Hindi ko alam, pero it’s always an honor to sing with such talented people. I’m a big fan of Angeline. She’s one artist na dapat abangan ng lahat. She has the passion and the talent for singing. So ang advice ko sa kanya, just do whatever she enjoys doing at ‘wag magpapaapekto sa kung anong sasabihin ng ibang tao kasi magaling siya.
