CJ Navato on Kristel Fulgar: ‘I really enjoy her company’


080316-cjkristel_main.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, Kristel Fulgar and CJ Navato talked about how their music collaboration started.

Kristel, who received her Silver Play Button Award from YouTube on the show, shared that it was Sue Ramirez who encouraged her to post covers online. “Inencourage niya ako, ‘uy mag cover ka! Ang ganda ganda ng boses mo!” Kristel said of Sue. “Sobrang proud niya sa akin. Tapos nag post po siya sa Instagram account niya na kumakanta kami tapos ang dami pong natuwa.”

Nagrerequest po sila ng full cover, full video. Tapos ayun po, gumawa po ako. Grabe naman po yung pagtanggap ng tao sa akin,” Kristel gratefully shared.

It was backstage of ASAP that the collaboration between CJ and Kristel started. CJ shared, “pagbalik ko sa dressing room, si Kristel biglang tinawag ako. Sabi niya, ‘uy! Halika nga! Cover tayo, kahit short cover lang sa Instagram post natin.’ I’d be honored naman kasi nakikita ko siya sa YouTube and sa Facebook.”

Unbeknownst to CJ, it was his grandmother who approached Kristel regarding this team up. “Sabi niya (ni Lola) sa akin, ‘ang galing galing mo naman. Ang ganda ng mga covers mo. Mag cover naman kayo ni CJ,’” Kristel shared. 

“Pero actually kung papapiliin po rin ako, or ako mamimili among friends ko, ng makaka duet ko dahil nagpa-plan din po ako, si CJ din [ang pipiliin ko],” Kristel admitted.

She added, “pero nakakahiya baka may…” to which host Boy Abunda reacted, “baka may magalit? Single naman kayo pareho, di ba? There’s this chemistry between the two of you.”

Boy then continued to ask, “may posibilidad ba na you guys will fall for each other?”

CJ replied, “sa akin kasi I really enjoy her company.” While Kristel related, “before itong mga cover, tropa na po kami. Kahit po pagkatapos ng Got To Believe, hindi naman po palaging nagkikita parang nagha-hangout po with other Goin’ Bulilit graduates rin po–nagke-KTV, nagmo-movie.”

“Ngayon po, actually medyo mas nakilala namin ang isa’t isa,” Kristel continued. “Parang mas naging close na kami. Mas may mga bagay na napag-uusapan na hindi namin napag-uusapan dati.”
