032516-jona_main.jpgNow that she is part of the Kapamilya network, Jonalyn Viray or just Jona remarked that she is happy especially that she is being given with projects. “Being a Kapamilya masaya din po ako dahil nga talagang sa mga ginagawa ko po na projects ngayon na sobrang in line po talaga sa gusto kong gawin,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph.

The singer is part of “Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2016”. She shared that she always wanted to be part of the musical competition. “Being part of ‘Himig Handog 2016’ sobrang blessed po talaga kasi I’ve been praying for this opportunity na sana makasama naman ako sa ganitong klaseng music fest na mag interpret ng isang song sa Himig and ito nga po nangyari siya so sobrang blessed, thankful sa opportunity na ibinigay sa akin ng Star Music,” she stated.

Jonalyn is also set to have her a new album. “Abangan po nila ‘yung album na lalabas under Star Music.” Will she change her musical style this time? “Actually same pa rin naman kung ano ‘yung nakasanayan sa akin na maririnig ng mga tao which is ballad pop and a little bit of R&B, ganon pa rin ang maririnig nila sa akin but may kaunting change. Hindi siya ‘yung totally birit, kumbaga medyo magi-iba kami ngayon sa album so abangan nila ‘yan.”

Among the Kapamilya singers, who does she want to work or collaborate with? “Si Ms. Lani Misalucha. She’s my long time idol na rin aside from Ms. Regine Velasquez, kay Ms. Jaya so yun looking forward ako na sana makatrabaho ko siya.

For her first project with ABS-CBN, she sang the theme song of the Kapamilya serye We Will Survive. She performed the song during the grand press conference of the show last February. She also explained why she changed her screen name to Jona. "Jona kasi nickname ko po talaga siya. So 'yun po ang ibinigay sa akin ngayon since it's a fresh start -- bagong home, bagong environment. Kaya po Jona," she said.
