Jovit Baldovino says he is not threatened by new upcoming singers


052613-jovit_main.jpgEven after three years in the industry, Pilipinas Got Talent season 1 winner Jovit Baldovino still can’t believe he is a much-loved Kapamilya. The 19-year old singer will be performing for Star Magic’s 21st anniversary celebration on May 26, Sunday on ASAP along with other top performers Zia Quizon, Marcelito Pomoy, Liezel Garcia, and Bugoy Drilon.

Siyempre hindi ako makapaniwala kasi sa dami namin sa Star Magic eh hindi ko akalain na ako ang makakasama sa prod na gagawin namin sa ASAP. So parang nagulat ako nung binigay nila sa akin ito. Last year kasali ako then ngayon hindi ako makapaniwala na kasali ulit ako. Taon taon maraming mga nadi-discover na talents ang Star Magic na mga singer na magagaling then hindi ko akalain na kasali pa rin ako,” he shared with Push.com.ph

The talented singer said he feels blessed to always feel welcome in the Star Magic family. “Pinakamasarap yung pag-aalaga nila sa akin. Siyempre sobrang laki ng pag-aalaga nila sa akin. Ang laki ng pagbabago na binigay nila dahil dati sa Batangas nagagawa ko pa yung mga kawalanghiyaan (laughs) nung hindi pa ako Star Magic like yung mga tambay tambay pa sa kanto. So ngayon alagang alaga kami ng Star Magic then ito pa yung masarap na nakaka-kasama ka sa mga US tour nila. Pag may tour abroad kasama ako kaya sobrang pasalamat ko talaga sa kanila,” he explained.

Jovit said Star Magic has helped transform his life from being a food vendor in Batangas to bona fide rock star. “Sobra po yung pagbabago. Hanggang ngayon parang hindi kapani-paniwala ganun ang nangyari pag iniisip ko,” he added.

Despite the surge of new up-and-coming singing talents in ABS-CBN, Jovit said he knows how to set himself apart and not feel threatened by the presence of other discoveries not unlike himself. “Sa akin naman, nakilala naman nila ako sa rock. So pagdating sa mga genre ng mga songs at mga singers na lumalabas, hindi naman ako natatakot na baka matabunan ako niyan o ganyan. Sa akin naman, ginagawa ko lahat at iba kasi yung genre ko, rock. So yun lang ako, ganun lang. Binibigyan pa rin naman ako ng ABS-CBN lalo na ng Star Records ng mga songs like nagri-revive ako ng mga songs like ‘Pusong Batona hindi ko akalain din na sumikat,” he said.

Jovit said he is also excited about the chance to perform for Filipinos abroad later this year as well as work on plans regarding a possible new album in 2014. “Sa September may Canada tour with the Champs ng ASAP. Then December sa Italy. Then sa next year baka maglabas ako ulit ng bagong album. Kasi nga nakilala ako sa puro revivals so ngayon naman may plano ako na mag-suggest ng gusto ko ipasok yung mga original songs ko pero OPM talaga,” he admitted.
