The singer says a major concert and new album are in the works this year.
Premiere male singer Jed Madela was awarded a Gold Record Award for The Classics Album, his latest from Universal Records, for outstanding sales of 10,000 units at ASAP Rocks. Present during the awarding is Universal Records’ General Manager Kathleen Dy Go.
“We always receive updates about the status of the album, so in a way, I knew that it will happen soon,” says Jed. “But I never thought it will be awarded that day, so I was caught surprised.”
Jed, who has been in the business for a decade, is set to conquer new territories by taking his first step into the Southeast Asian market next month.
“I am so excited,” admits Jed. “It feels like I am starting all over again.”
For his fans in the Philippines, a major concert and a new album are also currently in the works.
Throughout the years, Jed’s track record highlights the fact that he is one of the most bankable recording artists of his generation. His debut album I’ll Be Around includes the hit Let Me Love You. His other hit albums Songs Rediscovered (Double Platinum), which included his hit revival of The Past, Only Human (Platinum), The Voice of Christmas (Gold), and Songs Rediscovered 2 (Platinum), and The Classics Album (recently-awarded Gold) are all bestsellers.
“I am so blessed by having the best management team, record label, and fans, who continue to support me and my talent all these years,” declares Jed. “I will continue to perform knowing that, with my songs, I can touch other people’s lives.”
Produced by Platinum producer Ito Rapadas, The Classics Album boasts of gathering 16 carefully-selected songs earlier popularized by Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Tom Jones, Perry Como, Matt Monro, Nat King Cole, Paul Anka, Jack Jones, The Four Tops, Simon & Garfunkel. Jed’s inimitable vocal styling added more luster to the sterling qualities of these well-loved romantic and inspirational ditties.
