After being hailed as Tawag ng Tanghalan season 4’s grand winner last February, singer JM Yosures shared how much his life has changed since taking home the top prize earlier this year.

“Ang daming nangyaring ngayong panahon ng pandemic tapos yung story ko nga sa Tawag ng Tanghalan nag-resign ako sa work and I was about to go abroad. Pero hindi ako niligaw ng universe, parang binalik pa rin niya ako kung saan talaga yung puso ko which is sa music.

“So parang kung sa ganito kahirap na sitwasyon nga idinirect ako sa ganitong situation, parang bakit pa ako susuko sa mga susunod na challenges? Eh nabigyan na nga ako ng malaking platform ng ABS-CBN at ng It’s Showtime so parang bakit pa ako susuko?” he shared during the Tawag ng Tanghalan: Ang Huling Tapatan mediacon.

The 25-year-old singer and UP Industrial Engineering graduate also shared what has been keeping him inspired this year despite the ongoing pandemic.

“What keeps me inspired is yung mga supporters ko na parang yung mga hindi ko nakikita sa sarili ko, yung parang you’re not talented enough to show your talents sa ibang tao, pero sila pinu-push ka nila. Parang anong karapatan kong isuko ko yung gusto kong gawin eh ibang tao nga na-a-appreciate nila ito. So talagang na-i-inspire ako ngayon sa mga previous winners, sa mga life story nila sa mga nangyari sa kanila. so talagang every step of the way tinitingnan ko lang kanino dapat ako magpapa-apekto. Mostly sa positive side kaya up until now talagang hindi pa nababawasan yung pagiging positive and inspired ko sa music,” he explained.

With the next Tawag ng Tanghalan grand finals happening this September 18, Saturday, JM shared his advice for new finalists Reiven Umali, Froilan Cedilla, Psalm Manalo, Gem Christian, Adrian Manibale, Anthony Castillo, Lorraine Galvez and Aixia Mallary.

“Mahalin mo yung ginagawa mo and isipin mo kung bakit mo siya ginagawa in the first place kasi sometimes pag para sa sarili lang natin parang naiisip natin, ‘Ay okay lang ayoko na ituloy ito.’ Pero pag inisip mo na para ito sa taong naniniwala sa iyo, sa mga taong nagdala sa ‘yo sa posisyon na yan, dun ka ma-i-inspire eh kesa sa sarili mo sa totoo lang. Kaya ipagpatuloy niyo lang din yung passion niyo and surround yourself dun sa mga taong positive din yung outlook pagdating sa passion,” he shared.

During the event, JM also thanked fellow Tawag ng Tanghalan champion Janine Berdin for inspiring him to reach for his dreams.

“Mas bata siya sa akin pero ako yung parang ni-lu-look up ko si Janine pagdating sa karera pagdating sa music. Parang ang dami kong matututunan from Janine, from past winners, and also from the icons. So I’m just so excited and thankful sa binigay sa akin ng Tawag ng Tanghalan na opportunities,” he admits.
