After returning to the country following her stay in Canada earlier this year, Maymay Entrata admitted that she feels excited to be flying abroad again. She will be one of the performers at the Beyond the Stars: Star Magic US Tour in August.

“Sobrang excited ko kasi nung una kong Star Magic kasama ko dun ‘yung mga big stars din. Tapos ngayon na binigyan ako muli ng pagkakataon na magpasaya din sa ibang bansa at makasama ang Star Magic family. Halos lahat kasi sa kanila halos first time ko makakasama kaya looking forward talaga na makakasama ko sila pag pupunta kami sa mga lugar na gusto namin puntahan,” she said.

“At aside dun sa makakasama ko sila, siyempre makakasama ko ang ating mga kapamilya kasi sinisigurado namin talaga na hindi lang naman kami pupunta diyan para magpasaya, para rin talaga ma-feel at home talaga kay at andiyan kami hindi lang bilang isang hinahangaan niyo kundi bilang isang kapamilya,” she added.

Maymay revealed she has wanted to perform on stage for her US-based fans again for the past three years.

“Kasi unang-una, ‘yung last ko na out of the country na nag-show kami is 2019 pa kung hindi ako nagkakamali. Kaya sobrang excited ako muli na makasama yung mga OFWs, makasama sila at magpasaya sa kanila at ma-feel at home sila,” she explained.

“Kasi nga po siguro karamihan sa mga OFWs natin hindi na nakauwi dhail nga sa pandemya. Sobrang excited na kami dahil sobrang dami naming surpresa ‘day. Kailangan talaga i-expect niyo na talaga ‘yung pinaka kasi hihigitan namin ‘yun ng bongga,” she added.

During the media launch for Beyond the Stars: Star Magic US Tour, Maymay also shared what inspires her to be a more confident performer now.

“Ang inspirasyon ko talaga sa pag-pe-perform siguro talaga yung mga taga-suporta ko since sila naman talaga yung nag-push sa akin na mas mahalin ko pa yung ginagawa ko,” she said.

Admitting one of her biggest challenges, she said: “At true enough, nung una nga, gaya ng sinabi ko nahirapan talaga akong i-embrace ‘yung binigay ni Lord sa akin.”

But Maymay said she has learned to overcome that particular challenge, saying: “Pero kaunti unti, kapag pinag-aaralan mo siya, paunti unting na-e-enjoy mo siya. Sila ‘yung inspirasyon ko, yung mga kapamilya na sumusuporta sa akin, ‘yung pamilya ko,’yung Panginoon, at ‘yung mga mahal ko sa buhay.”
