As Gerald Anderson’s newest leading lady in the iQiyi original series Hello, Heart which premieres this month, singer Gigi De Lana clarified that this does not mean that her singing career will take a backseat.

“Yes. It’s my first time doing this kasi nga puro kanta ako di ba? So talagang na-pressure ako. Pero alam ko naman na gagawin ko yung best dito sa project na ‘to. I will give my 100% para dito sa series na ‘to kasi nga kahit first time ko ‘to gagawin ko siyang parang hindi first time.

“May halong pressure siyempre kasi ang kinalakihan ko talaga si pagkanta. Yun yung passion ko. Pero now na nakikilala ako ngayon as artista, siyempre it’s a big accomplishment for me. At saka gusto din ng nanay ko. I’m proud of myself kasi malayo ang singing tapos magiging artista ka kasi it’s very different. Kasi sa pag-aartista hindi naman ako kumakanta lang dun eh. Binibigay ko yung buong puso ko and grabe, very open at saka very vulnerable talaga ang pagiging artista so I’m very, very happy na ganito yung nakakamit ko,” she explained.

In Hello, Heart, the story follows Heart (played by Gigi), a beautiful, perky, and hardworking woman who is very unlucky in life. But everything changes for the better when she meets an emotionless, business-as-usual guy named Saul (played by Gerald) who hires her to pretend to be his wife in order to please his grandmother suffering from dementia. Saul becomes doubtful of Heart in the beginning so he decides to watch her every move until he finds himself unexpectedly falling for her. The series’ official theme song, “Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita” will be covered by Gigi De Lana and was originally sung by Roselle Nava.

Just like with how effectively she sings songs, Gigi said she pours a lot of emotions into her acting as well.

“Parehas vulnerable yung mga puso kasi ako minsan pag kinakanta ko yung song naiiyak ako. Kasi yung composers iba yan eh pag gumawa sila ng song eh. So iniisip ko ano ba yung ginagawa ng composer? Ano yung naisip niya, bakit niya ginawa itong song na ‘to? Para kanino yung naramdaman niya? Then babasahin ko yung lyrics ng paulit ulit. Para malaman ko ano ba talaga yung kailangan kong emotion dito sa song. Same habang nagbabasa ako ng script. Napakagandang series ng Hello, Heart and madami kayong matututunan dito and yugn puso niyo talaga magiging masaya. Please watch Hello, Heart kasi grabe yung effort namin dito,” she explained.
