Jed Madela on the longest time he had to wait for someone: ‘Five years’
051716-jedmadela.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, Jed Madela talked about his latest projects. This included a music video with the 5th Gen, “That’s the Way It Is.” Asked about 5th Gen is, Jed said, “(they are) 5 champions from the World Championship of Performing Arts. Rhap Salazar is part of the group.” He added, “they are champions from different years. That’s why 5th Gen—five generations.”

Jed said he is friends with all five of them and that, “I try to help them out. I always include them sa mga shows ko, sa concert ko and now sa album ko.” 

He said of the music video. “(It’s) an original by Celine Dion, (it’s a) feel good song about friendship and it’s very real kasi magkakaibigan talaga kami.” 

Jed is also coming out with the Jed Madela mobile application. He said that after his All Requests concert, “tuloy-tuloy pa rin ang all requests.” 

However, instead of coming up with YouTube videos, he thought “everybody is on YouTube so sabi ko lets do a mobile app, so everything is there the videos that they request for. I come out with a new video every week, photos, blogs…”  

He admitted it is expensive having to maintain a mobile application but, “more than the bayad, nakakapagod but fulfilling na maglagay ng material dun.” 

On Fast Talk, Jed chose Whitney Houston over Mariah Carey, Barbra Streisand over Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera over Britney Spears, and Ariana Grande over Meghan Trainor. 

He says the hardest question he’d been asked was “what’s your favorite song?” The saddest song he’s sung is “Tonight I Wanna Cry” by Keith Urban.

Asked for the longest time he ever had to wait for someone, Jed said, “five years.”
