Jay-R shares how he transformed himself into Pinoy rock icon Pepe Smith
031915-jayr1_main.jpgSa Aquino and Abunda Tonight, kinuwento ni Jay-R kung paano niya ginawa ang pag-transform niya into Pepe Smith para sa Kapamilya show na Your Face Sounds Familiar.

Ayon kay Jay-R, two-and-a-half hours inabot ang physical transformation kasama na ang makeup, paglagay ng chin prosthetics at wig. Buong linggo rin ni Jay-R inaral ang mga galaw at nuances ni Pepe Smith sa pamamagitan nang pag-research niya sa YouTube. Inaabot rin daw si Jay-R nang umaga sa pag-aral niya sa mga galaw at boses ni rock icon Pepe Smith.

Ngunit paano nga ba ni Jay-R binago ang boses niya? Ayon kay Jay-R, “baling-bali” ang boses niya dahil, “I had to take out kulot, take out a lot of the vibrato, and rasp my voice up which is hard.”

Nagpasalamat din siya sa pagbigay sa kanya ng judges na sina Sharon Cuneta, Gary Valenciano at Jed Madela ng highest point sa kompetisyon. Gagayahin naman ni Jay-R next week si Stevie Wonder.
