Does KZ Tandingan feel pressured to top ‘Himig Handog’ again this year?

032016-kz_main.jpgKZ Tandingan is back in the Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs competition this year as an interpreter after being hailed as the grand winner last year. When asked if there is any pressure on her part to top the competition since she won in 2015, she replied, “Siguro ‘yung pressure na nafe-feel ko ngayon is ‘yung pressure na mabigyan ng hustisya ‘yung kanta kasi ‘yung kanta ko ngayon it’s darker than usual. Hindi siya ‘yung palaging naririnig ng tao at ‘yung kanta ko ngayon nagra-rap ako and this time may kasama akong nag-interpret so kumbaga pag solo ka lang pwede mong gawin kahit ano eh. Pag may kasama ka kailangan niyong pag-usapan kung ano ang mangyayari don sa live na performance niyo, don sa song to make it effective para mas maintindihan ng mga tao.”

Does she want to win again this year? “Siguro gusto kong manalo kasi gusto kong manalo ‘yung song pero kung ako I’m very thankful na nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon na manalo once at siguro okay lang sa akin if hindi ako manalo. Of course I want to win for my composer pero masaya na ako don sa ibang pagkakataon pero pag may pangalawa bakit hindi?”

While being busy with her stint in the Himig Handog competition, KZ shared that they are also already planning for her concert this year. The singer relayed that it might happen at a bigger venue. “Hindi ko alam kung pwede ng sabihin pero meron kaming niluluto na concert this year na meron akong mga kasama. I take this as my biggest so far na gagawin ko and dream come true ‘to pag natuloy siya na magka-concert ako don.” Is it in Araneta? “Basta po mas malaki kung saan ako last year.”


The singer was also asked on why she decided to drop her surname from her screen name. She explained that it is to make it easier for people to remember her name. “Pinag-usapan namin with my management, hindi naman nagtanggal siguro mas madali lang na tandaan ng tao na KZ na lang hindi naman mawawala ang Tandingan eh. Hindi ko iniisip kung makakatulong [sa career ko], hindi, I just want to make it easier for people kasi minsan KZ namimis-pronounce nila ‘yung family name ko so mas okay na KZ na lang.”

The finals night of Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs will happen on April 24, 2016 at the Kia Theater.
