At the launch of her third album Touch of Your Love, Kim Chiu made the entertainment press laugh out loud as she unexpectedly threw a punchline directed at herself.
“Hindi na boses kiki ang boses ko,” she said with a laugh.
Taking note of her young fans, she rephrased her choice of words.
“Hindi na po pang kindergarten yung voice ko. Nag-mature na siya.”
Kim had a solo presscon at the 9501 Restaurant of ABS-CBN’s ELJ Building in Quezon City, Tuesday afternoon, September 26.
Produced by Rox Santos, Touch of Your Love is a five-track album (with a bonus minus one track). It features the catchy carrier single “Okay Na Ako.”
Other tunes with relatable love themes from the album are “’Wag Kang Makulit” composed by Nica Del Rosario and Hazel Faith; “Ipadarama” by Kiko Salazar; “Katok” by Jack Rufo and Yani Rufo; and “Yun Na, You Na” by Jungee Marcelo.
While she admittedly enjoys being a performer, Kim went on to say that she’s far from being confident as a singer.
She said this after an entertainment editor asked when the singer-actress plans to take her singing game to the next level by exploring mature pieces instead of her signature playful tunes with catchy lyrics.
The ABS-CBN actress explained, “Inaamin ko naman po na hindi po ako singer, but I'm proud to say that I'm an entertainer.
“I want to entertain people with my voice.
“Kahit papaano may binabagayan ang boses ko.
“Huwag mangarap ng pang-Regine Velasquez na kanta. Hindi po abot yun.
“Yung sapat lang.”
She added that she can barely imagine herself performing at a huge venue such as MOA Arena.
The very honest Kim said, shyly: “Nakakahiya, hindi ko deserve! Hindi deserve ng boses ko.
“Pang Skydome lang po ako o pang KIA Theater. Nahihiya ako.”
