After signing up with the Star Magic family, Rachel Alejandro shared how she finally became a true blue kapamilya this year after more than two decades in showbiz.

“Matagal ko ng pangarap. I think talaga everything parang  fell into place eh. It’s weird nga how our lives can change in just a blink of an eye. Kasi about a year ago or a little over a year ago, nakaupo ako sa couch naming mag-asawa sa New York and of course ito yung kasagsagan ng pandemya and honestly I was looking into my future and parang hindi ko talaga makita. Parang relevant pa ba ako? Kakanta pa ba ako? Parang ang layo layo na nung possibility na magkaka-concert pa ulit or mahgkaka-album pa ulit.

“But you know, naging masuwerte naman and parang one thing happened after another. Una nagkaroon ng offer to do this teleserye, my very first one under ABS-CBN. Pangalawa, nakausap din ng manager ko of more than a quarter of a century, si tita Girlie Rodis si Lauren Dyogi ng Star MAgic and nagkataon din naman dahil si tita Girlie is in the US and she plans to be there for a while, naisip niya na ipaalaga muna ako sa Star Magic. So kinausap niya si direk Lauren and sabi naman ni direk Lauren, ‘We’ve always naman loved Rachel. We’ve always wanted to work with her,’” she shared.

The veteran singer, who released her first online album last month after more than a decade, said she is proud to come out with The Great OPM Songbook Vol. 1 and also be part of the Star Music family.

“So ayun, one thing after another and then nung kakauwi ko pa lang galing Amerika nung June, eto naman pumasok yung offer nila sir Roxy (Liquigan) at ni Jonathan Manalo for Star Music. So ako talagang parang what. Biglang all of a sudden ang dami ng nangyayari. It’s proud day for me kasi 11 years din akong walang album and pag ganun kasi, parang iniisip mo kung gusto pa ba ako ng mga tao, nandiyan pa ba yung mga fans, yung mga sumubaybay sa mga awitin ko, sa mga luma kong kanta? And hopefully naman nandiyan pa nga sila,” she admitted.

Currently working in Baguio City for the month-long lock-in taping for the upcoming series The Broken Marriage Vow, Rachel said she is excited for their new show.

“The Broken Marriage Vow is an adaptation of Dr. Foster from the BBC UK and I think mas maraming Pilipino ang nakakakilala dun sa Korean version, yung The World of the Married. I play the mom of the mistress who is played in this version by Sue Ramirez. Ang bida natin dito ay ang pagkagaling galing naman talaga na si Jodi Sta. Maria at Zanjoe Marudo. Maganda yung role ko dito. Ang ganda nung arc ng storya niya. Yung mga nakapanuod ng The World of the Married alam niyo na siguro kung bakit ako blondie, kasi kasama yung buhok na yan sa storya (laughs). Yan ang pinagkakaabalahan ko ngayon. I’m going to be here probably at least by the middle of December. So halos mag-Pasko na rin bago ako makakabalik sa asawa ko sa US to spend Christmas there,” she said.

With the safety and travel restrictions easing up around the country, Rachel said she feels comfortable about the current situation even during the pandemic.

“Ito na yung pangalawang cycle namin dito and nagpapasalamat ako na at least nag-uumpisa na mag-open up ang Baguio and of course gumaganda na rin ang sitwasyon sa Metro Manila which is why pinayagan na kami mag-resume ng shoot namin dito. We’re very, very excited to be here. Napakasaya lang talaga ng shoot namin,” she added.
