"Please keep singing."
This was the advice of Martin Nievera to Catriona Gray, after they performed together on ASAP Natin 'To for the first time last Sunday, March 8. They performed "Shallow," which was originally sung by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
Catriona took to Instagram to extend her gratitude to Martin for performing with her on the show.
"Such an honor to share the stage in a duet with Sir @martinnievera! Thank you for the advice and for helping me calm my nerves!" she posted.

Martin commented, "You are not just another pretty face that can sing. You are beautiful, dahhhhhh! That’s a given. But let me tell you this -- you already have a singer’s voice. The voice of a singer that has been singing for years in big and small venues. Please, Keep singing… We all went ‘Gaga’ over your ‘Gaga song’ and performance! God bless you always.”
It was in December 2019 when Catriona returned to the Philippines after her reign as Miss Universe. Upon her return, the beauty queen shared her plan of focusing on her music. She is currently managed by Cornerstone Entertainment.
