Alex Gonzaga reveals she wants to audition for The Voice of the Philippines.
“Siyempre, gusto ko. Kaso baka walang humarap,” she said in jest during the press launch of her debut album, I Am Alex G, held last week.
Although she is often seen on TV as a host or an actress, Alex reveals that she has been singing in front of family and friends during private occasions.
She recalled, “Noong bata pa ako, maganda na talaga ang boses ko, alam ng mga kaibigan ko 'yan.
“Sa classroom magtatanong ako, 'Sino gustong kumanta ako?' 'tapos tatanungin ko ang favorite songs.
“Hanggang college po ako, sabi ko, 'O sige, i-record n'yo na baka mamaya magka-album ako.'
“'Yon mga kaibigan ko, kabarkada ko, classmate ko, mayroon sila ng video ng kumakanta ako.
“Kasi, mahilig na po talaga akong kumanta noon.”
At the press conference, music producer Jonathan Manalo described Alex as a “pop star” because most of her songs included in the album are pop music.
The younger sister of Toni Gonzaga also admitted, “Siguro kaya ganito 'yong mga napiling kanta kasi nandoon pa rin ang pagiging fun, pagiging light sa mga performances ko.
“Pero siyempre, kapag kakantahin ko na ang mga kanta ko sa album, nandoon yung kung paano ko siya ni-record.
“Dapat ganun pa rin ang pagkakakanta ko, pero 'yong performance nandiyan pa rin ang 110 percent.”
At her segment on ASAP called “Kara-Okey,” Alex is known for doing funny antics while singing with guests.
With the release of her new music album, does this mean she's already saying goodbye to her image as a funny performer?
“Hindi naman mawawala 'yon kasi ang personality ko po talaga is gusto ko talaga ng fun,” she replied.
“Ayaw ko naman talaga ng super serious.
“Siguro sa mga makakabili ng album, 'yong makaka-appreciate ng mga ni-record naming kanta, 'yong single naming 'Panaginip Lang,' maipapakita lang 'yong totoong boses ko.
“Pero it doesn't mean na mawawala na 'yong fun kapag nag-perform.”
The I am Alex G album has six tracks “Di Ko Akalain,” “Alam Mo Na ‘Yan,” “Boyfriend,” “Break Na Tayo!,” “Goodbye Kiss” and her carrier single “Panaginip Lang.”
All six tracks have minus one versions in the album.
I am Alex G is now available at all record bars nationwide for only P199.
Digital tracks can also be downloaded worldwide via online music stores such as iTunes and Mymusicstore.com.ph.
