Karla Estrada fulfills childhood dream via The Queen Mother in Concert

"Siguro lahat ng kumakanta simula noong bata sila, pangarap nila itong makapag-concert," Karla Estrada said about her upcoming concert The Queen Mother in Concert on April 30.


Karla Estrada is ready to fulfill her dream of performing in front of a big crowd through The Queen Mother in Concert on April 30 at the KIA Theater in Quezon City.

Initially, the ABS-CBN actress said she was hesitant to accept the offer to do a concert.

She explained, “Ayaw ko, hindi ako handa. Wala akong practice.

“Ang importante kasi sa akin, kahit maliit 'yong venue, basta ang galing kumanta, maganda 'yong voice ko, masaya ang show ko.”

She also recalled, “Noong tinanong ako, I wasn't prepared kasi ang tagal kong walang practice, ang tagal ko nang hindi kumakanta nang marami, paisa-isa lang. Iba kasi kapag marami, endurance kasi 'yon. Dapat kayanin mo, hindi ka hingalin. Kahit love song lang, nakakahingal.”

However, the trust given to her by a good friend changed her mind about the concert.

Although she was nervous about the idea, Karla accepted the offer.

She also jokingly noted, “Inupo nila ako, nilatag nila sa akin na ganito ang pwedeng mangyari, ganito-ganyan.

“In-assure naman nila na hindi lahat ako ang kakanta. Ibig sabihin mga four songs lang ako.”

FINALLY, A CONCERT.
Most people might not know it but Karla was a really a singer before she became an actress.

In an interview during the press conference of her upcoming concert, Karla recalled that she used to sing in small venues to earn extra income for her family.

She said, “Hindi kasi ako talaga kilala ng karamihan na kumakanta.

“Pero kahit kaunti lang ang nakakakilala ngayon, alam nila na yong pagkanta ay isang malaking bahagi na naitawid ko ang mga anak ko at ang buong pamilya.”

This was also one of the reasons she agreed to do The Queen Mother in Concert.

Siguro lahat ng kumakanta simula noong bata sila, pangarap nila itong makapag-concert,” she said.

Because of this, Karla stressed that she's more than grateful to do this project.

Ngayon, para pa rin akong nasa alapaap. Sobrang ang bilis ng mga pangyayari,” said the former Your Face Sound Familiar celebrity contestant.

Gusto ko lang naman talaga mag-enjoy kasi 'yong mga tao talagang tawang-tawa sa akin.

Sa totoong buhay, ganito na kasi talaga ako. Kapag nakausap mo ang mga kaibigan ko, tawang-tawa talaga sila kasi masiyahin lang ako.

Hindi ko alam na nakita na pala ng network ko 'yong sinasabi nilang the uniqueness side of me.

Kaya sabi ko, bakit hindi [ko gawin ang concert] kung nakapagpapasaya.”
