After officially being welcomed into the Star Magic family last month, singer Gigi De Lana, who joined Tawag ng Tanghalan in 2016, shared how she felt that day.

“Nung naganap kasi yung Star Magic Black Pen Day, sobrang happy ko and at the same time kinakabahan. Lahat kami talaga. Nung in-announce yung pangalan ko parang okay nandito ka na, wala ng atrasan ito. Ang sarap sarap sa feeling. Yun lang ang masasabi ko at that moment and sobra yung joy na na-feel ko. Pag naalala ko nga siya naiiyak ako kasi ang dami talagang nanagyari before na ups and downs. Pero mas madami yung downs. So this time this is it and just do what you can and pursue mo lang yung passion mo and your goals,” she said.

She has been singing since the age of five so it was definitely a dream come true when she was recently asked to perform on ASAP and got to meet one of her singing idols face-to-face.

“Gustong gusto kasi talagang maging regular sa ASAP. Kaya ako napasok last live sa ASAP gawa ni ate Regine Velasquez kasi sinabi niya sa akin personally, ‘I requested for you to be here.’ Grabe yung matalagal ko ng iniidolo nakaharap ko, nakausap ko, tapos ang trato sa akin parang kaibigan, kapatid. Hindi ko ini-expect kasi si ate Regine ang tagal ko na siyang iniidolo, bata pa lang ako. And pinangarap ko na kahit man lang makita ko siya ng harapan, kahit hindi ko siya makausap. Pero bakit ganun, maraming salamat sa lahat ng nangyayari ngayon na hindi ko naman ini-expect,” she shared.

Even though most of the repertoire with her band Gigi Vibes are ballads and pop songs, Gigi said the collaboration she would most love to do someday is with Pinoy rapper Gloc-9 and his song “Upuan.”

“Gusto kong mag-venture sa iba pang genres. Actually depende rin siya sa projects and siyempre yung future compositions ko at saka ng banda ko. Tapos gusto kong maka jamming sa totoo lang si Gloc-9 kasi sobrang galing niya mag-conceptualize ng music and ng mga words niya. And at the same time yung lyrics niya kasi eh nakakadala. Nakaka-affect siya ng madaming tao. Meron akong gustong i-cover na kanta niya. Gusto ko yun. gusto ko siya i-cover,” she said.

With her recent cover of Roselle Nava’s song “Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita” making it to the trending charts on social media, Gigi said she is happy people enjoyed her video with the Gigi Vibes band.

“Hindi namin talaga ini-expect na mag-va-viral yung video kasi talagang binibiro lang ako ng mga kabanda ko and hindi ko naman inurungan yung kakuwelahan ng banda ko at yung challenge sa akin (laughs),” she added.
