I was so elated to meet this young lady who happend to be a batchmate of my dear cousin during their high school years. During the press conference for bloggers at Tito Boy's Food Republic along Panay Avenue in Quezon City, she shared us that she grew up listening to Broadway songs. Actually she was raised in the US and a daughter of Filipino immigrant. It had always been her dream to pursue a singing career so when the opportunity knocked at her doorstep, she didn’t hesitate to leave Los Angeles and flew all the way to Manila and make her dreams come true.
Bloggers were treated to a beautiful voice before she formally introduced herself. Jayke Reyes is managed by BACKROOM INC. She was trained by illustrious vocal coach Seth Riggs, who is the same star-maker behind heavy hitters like the late Michael Jackson, Natalie Cole, Anita Baker, Josh Groban, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder and James Ingram. Moreover, she did commercials and auditioned for shows on Nickelodeon and Disney, making her musical exposure really impressive.
There are ballads meant to showcase her ability to hit the high notes and there are R&B dance hits. Jayke wants to be known as a versatile singer who can sing almost anything in her field. She's so young and really a dreamer. Sarah Geronimo is one of her idols. Though not that very good in Tagalog language she's been practicing it to perfection. Here are some things and ideas she shared with us. . .
“I think, there should be a mix para hindi magsawa nag tao. That’s why for me, I don’t want all birit. I don’t want people to say that’s the only thing I can do.”
“I know it will be hard. Success is not easy. But I believe in myself and I think I have good chance of making it. My family and I sacrificed for my dreams, so for my parents especially, I need to really push.”
To be entertained kindly check on her rendition of Kay Palad Mo. Be the judge if she can make it to stardom!
