The singing champ appeared on I Feel U sporting her new blonde hair and bold red lipstick, yet wearing the same sunny attitude she had since she was little. And as she put her own spin on Moira Dela Torre’s “Tagpuan” for a quick ‘birit’ sample, Elha proved that her chops didn’t change at all. She keeps on practicing at home and performs online while we’re still on quarantine.
Since she had the luxury of time, she decided to focus on her weight-loss journey. “Nag-start ako sa small goals po na, ‘dapat next week, ganito na ‘yung weight ko.’ Paunti-unti po. Hindi ko na lang po namamalayan na naglo-lose na pala talaga ako ng weight. Then, hanggang ngayon nagda-diet pa rin po ako,” Elha shared. She keeps a no-carb diet and exercises 2-3 times a day.
Growing up in the public eye has both its advantage and disadvantage. There is pressure of course. On the bright side, Elha has the power to inspire other people, especially teenagers like her dealing with body issues. With this, she posted her workout routine for her followers.
The young songstress has also become a hot topic because of her relationship with Brian Gazmen, 20. They met during a guesting for Magandang Buhay, became a squad alongside It’s Showtime TNT Boys member Mackie Empuerto, and unexpectedly fell in love.
The bliss of first love brings Elha the motivation to improve herself. She would admit that Brian was one of the reasons why she decided to lose weight and became more confident. When asked what made Brian a cut above the rest, she mentioned that he is patient.
There are clashing opinions about teenage romance. But for Elha, having a boyfriend at 16 can also be healthy as long as there is proper guidance involved. She stressed that people have different levels of readiness. She allowed the bashers to comment whatever pleases them. She doesn’t have time for the hate, anyway.
On the critical issues about modern fashion trends, Elha believes that girls can dress up the way they want to and the public must respect their choices. She added that bullying and harassment is a major cause of low self-esteem among young ladies.
On the use of social media, Elha thinks young people must use the platform responsibly.
With her unbreakable confidence and courage to work on her dreams, Elha is indeed the epitome of a modern “dalagang Pilipina.” She said that her generation of young ladies is brave and strong. And as a message to fellow Gen Zs still trying to figure their place in this world, Elha pointed out the importance of originality and keeping it real.
