Celebrating 30 years in the entertainment industry, singer-actress Vina Morales considers these three decades the biggest achievement of her career.
“Hindi po biro na magcelebrate ng tatlong dekada dito sa showbiz na ‘to at nabibigyan ka po ng opportunity na gumawa ng album, gumawa ng soap opera, magkaroon po ng concert,” she said during the press conference for her new album, Vina XXX.
As for her plans, Vina said that she is looking forward to doing more mall shows to promote her album. “We’re busy promoting it sa online tapos may mga guestings po ako sa TV. We will have bar shows for this album and then radio tours.”
She also expressed her wish that one of her songs would become the theme of an ABS-CBN teleserye. “Hopefully, sana naman marinig ulit ‘yung boses ko araw-araw. ‘Yun pala naglambing sa channel 2! Ang amin pong album, nanawagan po kaming tatlo,” she cheerfully quipped. “But you know, ‘pag meron naman po talagang tumugma sa isang soap opera at babagay po ‘yung awitin namin, I’m sure naman ang ABS ay ikokonsider po ‘yun since it’s also Star Music (producer).” Vina’s song, Pangako Sa ‘Yo, became a hit teleserye theme song.
As for acting opportunities, Vina is only waiting for the right projects. While she has an upcoming TV guest appearance on Ipaglaban Mo, she said that she is hoping to do a soap opera again. Her last series was Born For You which concluded last year.
Saying that she is also waiting for the right movie project, she said that she also wants to try doing an independent film. “Nagteatro na ako, concerts, album, soap opera, movies before. Hindi pa po ako nakapag-indie film so I wanna do indie film and also, siguro kung meron magandang projects for me, movie naman kasi medyo matagal ko na pong hindi nagawa ‘yun.”
As she was paired with actor Robin Padilla before, she hopes that they can work together again someday.
