Yeng Constantino’s songs to be featured in ‘Josephine the Musical’


071716-YensConstantino_main.jpgYeng Constantino admitted she never imagined she would be celebrating her 10th year in showbiz anniversary with a full-blown musical featuring all her songs in a PETA production in September called Josephine the Musical. "I first found out three years ago nung parang na-visualize siya nung manager ko na si kuya Erickson Raymundo and sabi niya, ‘Dapat sa ika-sampung taon mo sa industry meron kang musical.’ Siguro mga six and a half years pa lang ako sa industriya so siyempre hindi mo pa naman alam kung ano ang mangyayari along the way. And sobrang ang feeling ko ang dami ko pang kailangan patunayan para magkaroon ng musical. Pero fast forward to this day, wow totoo nga noh, nangyayari na nga talaga siya so I’m so happy kasi para siyang long journey na project. Ang haba talaga. Last year pa talagang kinakausap na nila ako, nagpapasahan na ng script, ng stories. Sobrang surreal ng feeling nakita ko na yung cast. Nandun kasi ako nung auditions eh,” she recalled.

Despite all her achievements, the I Love OPM judge said she still has moments of self-doubt. "Alam ito ng manager ko. When there are times na may mga malaking bagay na biyaya na dumadating sa career ko, nagkakaroon ako ng self-doubt which is lagi akong napapagalitan ng manager ko. It’s not about being humble, I think pagka may malaking biyaya sa life mo, may mga voices sa ulo mo na magsasabi na. ‘You don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve that. May mas magaling sa iyo, ganyan.’ Hindi ko naman linalabanan na sinasabi ko na deserving ako pero alam niyo yung ang totoong humility for me is when you learn to accept blessings from God na sobrang happy ka lang. And i-su-shut up mo lang lahat ng negative voices sa head mo. Isipin mo na lang na, ‘Wait lang, ginusto ito ng Diyos eh. You know what God? I’ll receive it and I’ll say thank you Lord,’” she admitted.

The 27-year-old performer said she will always remain humble no matter what blessings she receives. "Lagi kong sinasabi na sa ten years ko sa industriya sobrang achievement na sa akin kasi ang hirap naman talaga mag-stay dito ng ang daming dumadating at madaming umaalis. At yung makatayo pa rin ako dito ng sampung taon wow astig nun sobra. Lagi ko lang pinapaalala sa sarili ko na to always be grateful. Kasi once na yung feeling na yun ang nawala, yun ang nakakatakot. Kasi ibig sabihin nun you feel like lahat ng nangyayari sa life mo kagagawan mo lang. I always remember na yung mga nangyayari sa buhay ko at sa career ko biyaya ni God, katulong ng manager ko, ng family ko, ng supporters ko na Yengsters at kasama na rin siguro yung pagsisikap ko on the side. Pero mixture siya of everything. Hindi mo talaga puwede makuha yung credit for yourself. Hindi mo rin naman puwedeng itanggi. There’s always a balance. You have to find that balance,” she explained.
