Early Christmas gift para kay Inigo Pascual ang paglabas ng kanyang unang album sa Star Records nu’ng October 14. Ito ang masayang kuwento sa Push.com.ph ng binatang anak ni Piolo Pascual sa SunPiology Run presscon ng Sun Life na ginanap kamakailan.
“Sobrang saya ko po at sobrang thankful sa opportunity na ibinigay sa akin ng Star Music and I’m so excited kasi I wrote most of the songs in the album.
“I’m super excited and happy na maririnig ng mga tao yon dahil this is a side of me that I’m very proud of dahil this is something na I could say that is my own,” kuwento niya sa Push.com.ph.
Patuloy pa ng binata, “Siyempre po as Piolo’s (Pascual) son I want to be able to get out of that shell naman po, di ba, and want to be able to grow as myself as well. So in that way, I guess I will be able to do that and music is really my passion more than anything.”
Para kay Inigo, he’s more of a singer than an actor.
“Opo. Music has been my passion ever since I was in school, ever since I was a kid. Ever since I was a kid I joined choir, I joined Center for Pop, I did theater in the States, so music has really been my passion ever since. And it’s something that when I talk about it, sobrang nae-excite ako,” sabi pa niya.
Four days after the release of his self-titled album ay napasama agad sa top 10 ang carrier single niyang “Dahil Sa ‘Yo.”
“Parang it’s a dream, parang everything that’s happening right now it’s something that I’ve always dreamt of, more than acting, more than anything.
“Ito yung parang… alam n’yo po yung feeling na meron kang ginagawa for a long time and then the day come na all your hard work pays off. So ang sarap po sa feeling and it motivates me to even work harder,” sabi pa niya.
Ibig sabihin ba nito ay hindi na muna siya aarte at magku-concentrate na lang sa singing?
“Hindi naman po. I mean, I’m still doing some projects. Right now, I’m actually going to work on a couple of projects with ABS-CBN. For now, I don’t think I’ll do a teleserye because I’m also going to go to school,” balita pa ni Inigo sa Push.
Excited na rin daw siyang bumalik sa pag-aaral.
“I’m so excited, I’ll start November actually, next month. I’m doing a Business course. So sobrang excited ako dahil I’m at a point in my life where I feel like I’m expanding my horizons. I’m more open to new things. And I feel excited kasi gusto ko po yung ginagawa ko and that’s the most important thing naman di ba?
“I was out of school for two years. After 10th grade, I went to the Philippines, tapos nag-test ako sa DepEd, pero I gruadated high school naman po.
Eh, ano ang reaksyon ng tatay niya na matagal nang gustong bumalik siya sa school?
“Siyempre, tuwang-tuwa po siya. Sabi niya, ‘alright, you go do that’ kasi that’s all he’s been asking for for me, to finish my studies. Because more than anything, education is really important kasi, you know, fame is not forever.”
Sa Enderun Colleges mag-aaral si Inigo kung saan do’n din naka-enroll ang ilang celebrity tulad ni Kathryn Bernardo.
