For Klarisse de Guzman, snagging the title of grand champion in the latest season of Your Face Sounds Familiar is a dream come true. 

In an interview on Rise Artists Studio’s online show #WeRiseTogether, the singer said she has waited for years to get a champion’s trophy. 

“Sobrang tagal ko na rin na parang sana one day na makakagawa din ako ng trophy, champion. Siyempre nag-The Voice ako, nag-We Love OPM. And palagi akong hindi pinapalad sa finals. Ito, sobrang ‘di ako makapaniwala na nagka-title na ako sa isang show,” she said.

Meanwhile, Klarisse also shared what she has learned throughout her journey in the competition. 

According to the former The Voice contestant, joining Your Face Sounds Familiar pushed her to do things she has never done before on stage. 

“I’ve learned a lot of things sa Your Face Sounds Familiar kasi talagang na-push akong sumayaw, umarte sa stage. Ayun ‘yung mga iniisip ko nu’ng una eh. Parang sabi ko nu’ng una, kaya ko ba? Siyempre, mag-a-audition din kami para maging performer. Siyempre napapanood ko before, sumasayaw,” she said.

The singer added that she has learned not to hold back and to level up as as a performer. 

“Siyempre, hindi naman lagi ballad ang kakantahin mo. Tapos aarte sa stage. Ayun ‘yung mga natutunan ko. Na don’t hold back. Na kaya mo naman. Natutunan ko na lumabas sa shell ko. Ipakita ang totoong Klarisse din sa Your Face kasi du’n napapakita ko na makulit. Ayun nga, na huwag kang matakot, don’t hold back and mag-level up,” she remarked. 

Sharing what makes her stint in the YFSF different, she said: “Nakaka-pressure din siya somehow na siyempre expectation sa’yo ng tao, palagi ka nilang napapanood sa ASAP. Kailangan, palaging flawless gaya ng lahat.”

“But, ang hirap eh. Mahirap talaga lalo na ngayong pandemic, ‘yung usual pong Your Face Sounds Familiar taping, one icon lang every week. But kami siyempre, kailangan namin i-maximize ang taping namin. Kailangan na we had to learn three artists every taping. So, sunod-sunod ‘yun,” she added. 

Klarisse went on to share the challenges she faced during the competition, saying: “Three days na sunod-sunod ‘yun. Kunwari tapos na kami sa isang artist, ‘di pa kami nakakahinga nun kasi bukas ulit. Tapos bukas ulit. So ganu’n ‘yung challenge talaga.”

Admitting there are times when she would feel drained, she said: “Nakaka-drain siya. Pero somehow, nacha-challenge mo ‘yung sarili mo. And ang sarap sa feeling na ikaw mananalo that week,” she said. 

“Oh my God. Kahit mahirap, ‘di ba worth it naman ang natutunan ko and sobrang worth it naman ang mga ginawa ko sa Your Face Sounds Familiar. Kaya sobrang thankful ako sa show na ‘yan. And ang pagkakaibigan talaga naming mga performers, sobrang saya talaga and enjoy lang. Kung manalo man, eh di bonus na lang ‘yun,” she added.
