Janella Salvador to star with Marlo Mortel and Manolo Pedrosa in ‘Oh My G!’


112814-janella_main.jpgJanella Salvador said that she is really ecstatic that people are now recognizing her singing talent. “I’m actually happy because it all started with Himig Handog, I didn’t expect it na [it will start] my singing career, feeling ko this is the start na. I’m happy that people are starting to hear my voice kasi I really love singing since I was a kid,” she stated.

Does she want to release an album someday? “Yes I hope soon magkaka-album ako.” When asked about her musical inspirations, Janella shared, “Well Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey, at pinakafavorite ko [kantahin] na hindi ko pa kayang kantahin yungEmotions’ ni Mariah Carey.” On her edge over other teen performers today, she commented, “Siguro I grew up kasi on the performing side so ‘yun siguro so performer talaga ‘yung market.”

Janella relayed that she looks up to Sarah Geronimo when it comes to singing and she hopes to collaborate with her someday. “Sarah kasi I like her voice, she has her own style and talagang you won’t see her making any mistakes so perfect talaga.” If she had to choose between singing and acting, Janella shared that singing has always been her first passion but she stressed that she will always try to choose both. “Since birth kasi singing talagayung talent ko now ko lang na discover na I love acting but I like both.”

With Be Careful With My Heart drawing to its conclusion, Janella admitted that it is not yet sinking in that she is already bidding goodbye to the soap that has been part of her life for two years. “Actually hindi pa siya nagsi-sink in sa akin na it's ending siguro on the day when I wake up na wala ng taping maybe that's when I realize na I’m starting to miss everything lalo the people who are part of the cast sina tita Jodi (Sta.Maria), sina Papa Chen (Richard Yap), ‘yung family talaga, like I have a second family.”


112814-janella_main.jpgJanella is set to star in a new soap after BCWMH. She will be playing her very first starring role in the upcoming teleserye Oh My G!. “I have a soap coming up it's called Oh My G! I’m going to be with Marlo Mortel and Manolo Pedrosa, more on the teen story, there is drama din.  We just had our story conference and I’m super duper nervous and at the same time I’m super excited kasi it's actually a very interesting soap. I’m actually very excited about it, it's my first leading role so its' about the fifth centenary of St. Therese of Avila and it's going to air early next year so aabangan nila ‘yan, it's inspiring.”

She added, “Well about the role it's a typical teenager lang eh it’s very me, it’s very modern so it’s really something that teens can relate to and ako personally I have a relationship with God, I’m very faithful so I’m really excited to play this role.”

The young star believes that she would find it easy working with Marlo and Manolo. “I guess it’s easier kasi I’m comfortable na with Marlo, matagal ko na siyang naka-work. I’ve worked with Manolo in MMK (Maalaala Mo Kaya) so I guess it's going to be okay and we're having workshops na.”
