Janine Berdin shared how Tawag Ng Tanghalan changed her life forever as she joined Star Magic moving forward with her career in the industry.
Asked how she feels about being part of the ABS-CBN talent management arm, Janine said words can’t describe how she feels right now.
“Ibang-iba po ‘yung feeling dahil ‘pag naririnig po kasi ng mga tao ‘yung words na Star Magic, parang agad agad na ‘Wow, ‘yung best of the best. Iba po ‘yung feeling na kasali po ako sa family niyo,” Janine said.
Janine, who joined Star Circle Quest back in 2011, is no stranger to the talent agency as she became part of it as a kid.
“Bumiyahe pa po talaga kami dito sa Manila ng family ko just to audition kasi sabi ko po talaga sa Mama ko, ‘I want to try’. Tapos sabi niya ‘Why not?’ tapos nag-visit na lang din kami sa family ko dito sa Manila. So pumayag po. Supportive po talaga ‘yung family ko. Binigyan ng chance ni Lord, nakapasok sa Top 10, Top 4,” she stated.
Meanwhile, the 19-year-old singer revealed how Tawag Ng Tanghalan allowed her to renovate her condo, travel to places, and send her brothers to school.
“‘Yung pagka-renovate ng condo ko here sa Manila. Sobrang hindi ko inexpect na I get to do it at this age and that I get to help my family din to pay the bills and everything. And I get to help my brothers go to school,” she said.
“Isa din po ‘yung nakapag-travel ako because of singing to places na I’ve never been to. Like first time ko pong nakapunta ng Dubai ‘cause of singing. Nakapunta na din po ako sa US because of singing,” Janine added.
