Pinoy Big Brother Otso Teen Big Four Jelay Pilones comes from a family of singers. Her parents are performers as well. Growing up watching them, Jelay insisted working as a lounge singer. Her mom and dad disagreed at first but finally gave in to Jelay’s request upon seeing her perseverance and passion for music.
At eleven, Jelay started working at a bar in their province to help provide financial assistance for her studies and family as well. Aside from her skills in giving soothing feel to any song, Jelay is also blessed with beatbox prowess.
In an interview with Boy Abunda for TWBA, the Sassy Sipag Girl of General Santos City shares her talent in beatboxing. The King of Talk asked her for a short lesson which Jelay gladly obliged.
According to the Kim Chiu look-a-like, the basic of beatboxing requires the b-t-k sounds; as if uttering the Tagalog word butiki.
Jelay’s expertise in the said field is evident when she delivers a short beatboxing performance with swag. Seeing how much Jelay loves her craft, Tito Boy wishes her luck and the courage to pursue what is in her heart – music.
