Janine Berdin continues to astonish us with her awe-inspiring vocal performances on ASAP Natin ‘To, as she rises further in her flourishing music career.
She is also a prolific songwriter, penning the heart-wrenching “Pagod Na Ako” late last year in a collaboration of The Voice Kids alum Juan Karlos, who acted as producer and arranger of the single.
In the last few years, we have also witnessed Janine’s mesmerizing transformation. She guested on Magandang Buhay last year to take on the “Glow Up Challenge” of the momshie-hosts alongside fellow singers FANA and Zephanie Dimaranan.
In that dare, a photo of each of them in their younger years were first flashed on the screen and they would comment on it or share something about it. For the Tawag Ng Tanghalan Season 2 grand champion, it was a cute snap of her during her Star Circle Kid Quest stint when she was only eight years old. While everyone gushed over her cuteness, she jestingly noted how healthy and glossy her hair was back then.
“Gusto ko lang mag-‘thank you’ siyempre sa mga sumama sa’kin sa journey ko. Siyempre, tayong lahat naman po dumaan sa insecurities, lalo na po ako hanggang ngayon, I mean. Pero I’m very thankful to my support system – sa friends ko, sa family ko, kayo pong lahat – ‘yan, glow up,” she expressed when a present, ‘glow up’ image of her was shown on the screen.
It can be recalled that it was in October 2020 when Janine made headlines as photos of her transformation spread like wildfire on social media and garnered mixed reactions from netizens. In an interview with Darla Sauler in her online show “C U in 10” on her YouTube channel, she disclosed that it’s all about making herself happy.
“Do something to make you happy kasi minsan lang. You only live once nga ‘di ba?” she said.
Then she added, “Kasi kapag hindi ka masaya sa sarili mo, magre-reflect. Kasi nakikita ko sa mga post ko dati, mga videos ko, nakikita ko din kung gaano ako ka-self-conscious. And now, when I look up my photos now, nakikita to all videos I take [na] parang ang saya. Nakikita ko na ang saya ko na, ang saya ko na sa sarili ko.”
