After releasing her debut single “Sakalam” with the Gigi Vibes band earlier this month and announcing her first major digital concert in December, singer Gigi de Lana received another blessing as she was chosen to sing the official theme song of the upcoming new drama series Viral Scandal “Nasa ‘Yo” produced by Jonathan Manalo of Star Music. The 26-year-old singer performed the theme song during the Viral Scandal virtual launch event held earlier this month.

“Ang ganda nung song tapos binigay ko talaga yung best ko kasi first time ko kumanta ng theme song. Talagang bobonggahan ko ‘to! Maraming maraming salamat sa opportunity na maging part ng Viral kahit theme song lang. Maraming, maraming salamat sa first theme song namin,” she said.

During the event, Gigi shared how she did not expect another big opportunity like this to happen this year for her and her band. “Actually first time ko lang din siya narinig and sinabihan ako na first time akong kakanta ng theme song ng Viral a few days ago lang. Tapos hindi ko alam kung ano magiging reaction ko. Sobrang honored kami ng Gigi Vibes. Ang saya saya ng puso namin ngayon,” she said.

Gigi admitted that even though they did not compose the song themselves, they were happy to be chosen out of all the talented local artists in the music scene. And once they were given the song to learn, Gigi promised to give it her best as heard on the show. “Kami lang yung pinakanta. Ang ganda ganda rin kasi nung song. Kahit ako nagandahan ako sa kanya. Ang ganda nung lyrics nakaka-goosebumps. Tapos binigyan pa ng touch ng Gigi Vibes,” she said.
