After wrapping up the second season of Idol Philippines hailing Khimo Gumatay as its new grand winner last September 19, some of the judges behind the reality singing competition held an intimate get together at the residence of celebrity couple Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez last weekend. Ogie’s fellow judges Moira Dela Torre and Chito Miranda were also there with the latter bringing along his wife Neri Miranda that night.
During the get-together, Moira shared that she was able to have a new composition with the help of Ogie. In her Instagram post last September 20, she wrote,
“ano ba ang aking halaga
ba't bigla bigla ka nalang nawala
/ finished another song at the alcasids last night w the help of my tito @ogiealcasid who humbly asked me ‘may I?’ and played the piano for me what a dreaaam. lysm tito ogieeee.thank you na din sa bago kong paboritong ate @mrsnerimiranda at kuya @chitomirandajr na nagchcheer lang sa likod”
As one of the guests that night, Neri also shared how it felt to witness the two popular musicians create a brand new song together so spontaneously.
She wrote, “Yung bigla na lang may nabuong kanta si Moira habang pinaglalaruan ang piano nila Sir Ogie tapos tumabi si Sir Ogie at sinabayan niya si Moira na akala mo alam na niya yung song... grabeeee! Mga henyo!
“Nakakakilabot at na-witness ko ang pagbuo ng bagong kanta ni @moiradelatorre kagabi. Ang sakit sakit. Nakakapangilabot. Ang ganda ganda. Tagos sa puso. Na LSS na nga ako, haha! Saka ko na post yung BTS video kapag narelease na niya.
“Tapos iba si Sir @ogiealcasid HUSAY!!!! Ang galing galing!! Naririnig nya lang si Moira na may kinakapang notes sa piano, sabi nya lang, ‘May I?’ Tapos bigla na lang tumugtog na as if siya composer tapos ang ganda ganda! Mas lalong pinaganda yung song ni Moira, mas lalong ramdam mo yung sakit.
“Sabi ni Ms Regine, hindi raw nag aral mag-piano si Sir Ogie. Ang husay grabe!! Ang galing galing!
“Mag-iipon na ako pambili ng grand piano tapos magpi-feeling ako. Mag emote emote ako kunware, kunware maganda rin boses ko”
Last week, Moira’s husband Jason Marvin Hernandez released his first song since revealing his separation from the Idol Philippines judge earlier this year. Moira also recently dismissed rumors that her new song “Babalik Sa’Yo” is about reconciling with her estranged husband. The couple wed in 2019 before announcing their breakup last May.
