While Moira dela Torre is one of the few OPM artists who sings her heart out whenever she performs a song, it was only when she did a "Baby Shark" cover that she publicly broke down into tears since the death of her Lola Lucy. It was her grandmother who inspired her to write an emotionally-stirring original song.
During the blogcon for her new feat as the first OPM artist to lead Spotify's Top 50 PH Charts, PUSH got to ask the "Titibo-Tibo" singer why she became emotional towards the end of the "Baby Shark" cover - a promise to her fans for winning the top prize in Himig Handog 2017.
"That was the first time I cried after all the things that have been happening to me from Torete to GGV and then to Himig Handog never po ako naiyak. Until that night when he said your Lola must be so proud. She passed away in April. And then dun na po. You know I started, I couldn't hold it in anymore," she opened up.
"My Lola was my number one supporter. She was my partner in crime. She was my number one encourager in everything. She taught me how to persevere. So the moment she left that's when the blessings came out. And I was like I wish she could've been here," she said.
