Jona overwhelmed with emotions as she returns to singing on the ASAP stage

Jona admitted that she felt anxious as she returned to work again following the many months of staying at home. The Kapamilya singer got to perform on a real stage for ASAP recently as the variety show resumed taping again.

"First work day yesterday outside the comfort of our home! Feeling overwhelmed with so many emotions - I was feeling nervous, anxious, uneasy and a little scared to be out again with so many people. Mag-isa lang din ako pumunta sa trabaho which is a first time for me in maaaaany years, and I only have my hairstylist (@iamjulyvito) with me the whole taping. Multitasking kaming dalawa," she shared on her Instagram page. 


She confessed that she felt uneasy feelings when she got to step on a stage again. 

"Feeling pressured and nervous to sing again and perform on a real, big stage. But, at the same time, happy and grateful na resumed na kami, ang @asapofficial at iba pang @abscbn programs," she relayed.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Long post. First work day yesterday outside the comfort of our home! Feeling overwhelmed with so many emotions-- i was feeling nervous, anxious, uneasy and a little scared to be out again with so many people. Mag-isa lang din ako pumunta sa trabaho which is a first time for me in maaaaany years, and I only have my hairstylist(@iamjulyvito) with me the whole taping. Multitasking kaming dalawa. Also feeling pressured and nervous to sing again and perform on a real, big stage. But, at the same time, happy and grateful na resumed na kami, ang @asapofficial at iba pang @abscbn programs. Kadressing room ko si ate @soulsiren_nina (hi ate😍), and when she's done in the mid afternoon, dalawa na lang kaming naiwan sa room hanggang gabi. Ang weird talaga sa pakiramdam ng "new normal". Feeling isolated kami doon sa area kung nasaan room namin. Walang katao tao. Hindi mo rin mayakap yung mga tao na matagal mong di nakita at nakasama. But, despite all these weird, difficult, unusual and new experiences, we have to choose to be grateful. Grateful that we are alive and healthy, we still have work AND are able to work. Salamat sa Panginoon. I prayed and opened up to God how I feel and asked Him to give me the things I need to overcome those feelings. And He answered my prayer❤🙏 Thank you so much too, ate @arlenetmeyer, @riyamae_m, @giancarlolaxamana and @iamjulyvito for making things easier for me! and also to ate @lovecapulong for the coordination🙂 Congrats my @asapofficial fam for the job well done, for the hard work of putting all these together; and to the whole @abscbn for implementing all the safety measures for all of us! THE RETURN OF "ASAP NATIN 'TO" LIVE, BUKAS NA MGA KAPAMILYA!❤ . . *mask made by @designers.collab Philippines. Thank you so much to @christophermunar 🤍

Jona also recounted how her dressing room felt empty amid the strict measures imposed amid the pandemic. “Kadressing room ko si ate @soulsiren_nina, and when she's done in the mid afternoon, dalawa na lang kaming naiwan sa room hanggang gabi. Ang weird talaga sa pakiramdam ng ‘new normal’. Feeling isolated kami doon sa area kung nasaan room namin. Walang katao tao. Hindi mo rin mayakap yung mga tao na matagal mong di nakita at nakasama," she stated.

Despite the difficulties, Jona remarked that she is choosing to be thankful now that she is back to work again.
