Yeng Constantino lends songwriting skills for Star Magic’s first music video


"Parang yun ’yong gusto ni Mr. M [Mr. Johnny Manahan], na iparating sa mga tagahanga, sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa mga artist ng Star Magic, na sila ’yong dahilan kung bakit nag-i-strive kami nang mabuti para maging [mahusay na artista]," says Yeng Constantino about the main theme of Star Magic’s first music video called Ikaw ang Magic ng Buhay Ko .


It didn’t take a long time for Yeng Constantino to finish the theme song of Star Magic’s first music video, which is part of its 19th anniversary celebration this year.

The young singer-songwriter relates to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) how she created the song "Ikaw ang Magic ng Buhay Ko" in just one day.

"Actually, dalawang version ’yong ginawa namin. The first one, iba ’yong chorus pero gusto ni Mr. M [Johnny Manahan] na mas mabilis. So, binilisan namin yung tempo.

"Then, yung mabagal na song, binilisan, hindi bagay.

"’Tapos last naisip ni Mr. M na gusto nga namin may word na magic.

"Parang kami, as an artist, ipinaliwanag sa akin na, ’yong fuel namin para mag-go on kami or para mag-excel kami sa pagkanta at pag-acting namin-’yong mga supporters namin.

"So, parang yun ’yong gusto ni Mr. M, na iparating sa mga tagahanga, sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa mga artist ng Star Magic, na sila ’yong dahilan kung bakit nag-i-strive kami nang mabuti para maging [mahusay na artista]."

And just like the main theme of the song, Yeng just thinks about her avid followers to get her inspired in completing the song.

"Ang ginawa ko, pinag-isa ko na yung sarili ko sa gusto ni Mr. M. Siyempre, naisip ko yung Yengsters ayun so parang, iba yung feeling kapag nagre-reminisce.

"Sabi ko, ’’’Yong journey ko, paano ka nagsimula, hanggang sa ’yon, marami ka na rin kahit paano na aachieve dito sa industry. Like, kapag may nagna-number one na kanta sa radyo ganoon, or sa MYX.

"Parang ’yong feeling na ’yon, naayon, sumasayaw para sa ’yo, nagniningning, kumikinang para sa’yo.

Pero minsan, kami as a singer, as an actress, hindi nila naririnig na, ’Ay salamat ha."

"Kayo [mga fan] ’yong nagbigay ng buhay sa amin, sa akin as an artist, para gawin ko ’tong mabuting ginagawa ko nang maayos at magaling."

Apart from having an opportunity to say thank you to her followers, Yeng says this project is also overwhelming since this is her first time to compose a song for ABS-CBN’s talent arm.

The Pinoy Dream Academy grand winner says, "First time kong mag- compose for [Star Magic]. Parang sobrang natuwa ako binigyan ako ni Mr.M ng break."

This music video will showcase all the talents of Star Magic. This includes its prime actors such as Piolo Pascual, John Lloyd Cruz, Vina Morales, Shaina Magdayao, KC Concepcion, Bea Alonzo, and Zanjoe Marudo.

Ikaw ang Magic ng Buhay Ko, directed by Paul Soriano, will premiere on ASAP Rocks on June 26.
