Frankie Pangilinan says that there are different kinds of voices and it's time to hear them all.
Frankie Pangilinan aspires to change the perception of the Filipino audience that singing is only for "biriteras." She recently released a single titled “tyl," which charted on iTunes here in the Philippines and abroad.
“I’ve written songs that cater to a separate sound that perhaps Filipinos haven’t heard before. My voice is deeper than most women (to say the least), which I had to grow up and realize isn’t a characteristic that’s often associated with success or greatness to Filipino ears. I want to change that," she said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
She added that there are other musical styles and voices. Frankie wants to introduce it to the masses. “There’s a thing about birit and high notes that – while completely valid as a tier of talent I can only hope to reach – is a standard I wish to break through. There are thousands of kinds of voices. It’s time to hear them all,” she stated.
With a single released, Frankie hopes to create an album in the future with the team she has found.
“I was given the wonderful opportunity to finally work with a team of people who were kind enough to give me primary creative control... I’ve always been writing music, though I’m sure you know that I write nonstop and I always have. But I felt that with that writing came a certain degree of integrity, which I entirely intend to preserve. My music is honest. And it should be kept that way for always,” she stated.
