Jolina Magdangal talks about her first family ‘collaboration’
031116-JolinaMagdangal_PUSH.jpgDuring the press launch for Jolina Magdangal’s latest gold record album Back To Love, the singer-actress shared the story behind the song “Ganito Pala Ang Pag-ibig” which featured the voice of her son Pele at the end. 

Jolina shared that this song’s first verse was composed by her husband Mark Escueta during the time when they were still boyfriend and girlfriend. 

She began narrating, “Noong gagawa na ako ng album, sabi nila baka pwedeng maglagay si Mark ng kanta. Sabi ko, ay sige naman. Tapos naisip nga namin itong kantang ‘to na tapusin na. So tinapos namin ni Mark ‘yan, sinama niya ako sa paggawa ng kanta. Parang hiningian niya ako ng idea kasi ako, hindi pa talaga ako marunong magcompose pero ang dami dami kong naisip na sana pwedeng mangyari sa isang kanta so nagpakwento siya sa’kin ng nagpakwento tapos nagulat na lang ako, parang sinasabi niya, ‘basta ‘pag tinanong kung sinong gumawa ng kanta, tayong dalawa…’”

Talking about how their two-year-old son got involved in the recording process, Jolina said, “Kaya nasama si Pele, tuwing recording kasama ko siya. Mahilig niyang hawakan ‘yung microphone tapos navideo siya ng road manager ko one time na kumakanta siya. Tamang tama pinasok namin siya dun sa last na music ng kanta pero (dahil) sakto naman siya sa tono, sinama na namin siya para one big happy family na ‘yung kanta. Parang ganon, sinama ko talaga siya.”

Moreover, she added that this is what makes her new album unique. “’Yun din ‘yung kaibahan siguro ng album na ‘to, parang nakasentro na siya na parang may meaning lahat ng ginagawa ko. Ang sarap ng may feeling na may family.”

When asked if Pele recognizes her singing voice, Jolina answered yes, sharing that she even posted a video on Instagram where Pele was singing along with her and another one when he recognized his mother on television. 

Meanwhile, Jolina, who is endorsing the diaper brand Super Twins alongside her family, was asked if she wants to have twin children in the future. 

“Sana nga twins… Nangangarap ako dati na twins talaga ‘yung maging anak ko eh kasi para isang irehan na lang o isang hugutan na lang. Isang gano’n na lang, dalawa na, tig-isa na kami agad ni Mark pero wala po kasi kaming lahi ng twins. Pero if ever, why not? Gusto ko nga eh, twins or triplets,” she answered.
