"The Philippines is like, the land of the greatest singers, in my opinion, so I’m just really, really lucky and humbled to come from that kind of place. I wanna be a part of that movement that spreads it internationally so I’m just honored that I got to be one of those people," he stated in the interview. 

Jej, who was born in Davao and migrated to the US when he was 15, shared that he made his own arrangement for his audition piece in the blind audition.
