Sharon Cuneta on Lea Salonga: 'I'm just honored to be a coach along with her'
050716-sharon.jpgSharon Cuneta is slated to be the newest coach of The Voice Kids Philippines. When it comes to her coaching style, the Megastar shared that she's gearing towards a different approach now.

"Una sa lahat, pusong mamon ako eh pero I think this time kailangan halo 'yung pagiging malambot sa pagiging strikto rin kasi we are looking for a great singer, hindi 'yung kung sino 'yung may malungkot na istorya," she said.

Sharon was asked if she foresees a possible rivalry between her and coach Lea Salonga as fans of the show might pit them against each other. She responded, "I'm sure they will love to do that but that's all part of the business pero kami ni Lea we've been friends forever, we've been friends for such a long [time].

"I have tremendous respect for Lea Salonga. She has achieved so much that no other Filipino has so I'm just honored to be a coach along with her, alongside her and Bamboo. So I think ang hilig talaga ng tao manggulo, pag peaceful gusto may gulo, may intriga. Pag naman iniintriga gusto inaayos so pagpapatulan mo lahat masisiraan ka ng ulo. I have no problem with that [by being pitted against each other], it's not going to work."

The Kapamilya star also shared that she will be doing a movie again this year. She has been losing weight for her upcoming silver screen comeback.

"The other reason that I am continuing to lose weight because I am doing a movie this year. I am about to shoot in August I think so I have couple of months to lose weight and by that time I am confident that I'll be back because I'm very inspired and very grateful to be working again in all my areas, kumbaga in all the media forms."
