Alyssa on finding herself and returning to singing: ‘I learned a lot from that relationship.’
Alyssa Quijano made the online world abuzz on Sunday evening after opening up about her past relationship with Jake Zyrus on Idol Philippines. Alyssa performed “Araw Gabi” during her audition and shared her backstory to the judges.
“Marami akong na-sacrifice don sa relationship namin kasi I stopped singing, nawala ‘yung Alyssa na kilala ko. I was just giving my all na parang nakalimutan ko na ‘yung sarili ko,” she shared.
Alyssa relayed that the said relationship taught her so much about life. “After the breakup, ‘yung medyo nakaka-move on na ako, I learned a lot from that relationship. Alam kong mahirap din ‘yung mga pinagdaanan niya and I believe na pareho kaming natuto sa mga pagkakamali namin,” she stated.
Right now, Alyssa is finishing her Medical Technology course and has returned to singing. “Ngayon, I am pursuing my dreams. I am becoming who I really am, kaya nga bumalik ako ng school and kumakanta ako ulit,” she said.
She added, “Now that I’ve shared my story for the first time, this is the time I am leaving my past behind me.”
