It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan Season 2 grand winner Janine Berdin shared interesting facts about herself and her journey as she answered questions from the netizens in TWBA Online Exclusive.
Janine mentioned that her other interests include filmmaking and she would’ve pursued this field if she didn’t win in Tawag ng Tanghalan. Of course, she is game to take on acting projects in the future.
The songstress looks at bashing about her unique singing voice as a motivation than discouragement. She even takes them as inspiration in making her first album, which she would like to call as “Ako.”
As a young dreamer often discouraged for a quality so unique in her, Janine would like to tell her fans to embrace their individuality. “Huwag na huwag n’yo pong isipin na ang kaibahan ay hadlang sa tagumpay,” she expressed. The 16-year-old champ would admit that she’s still in the stage of exploring her niche and getting to know herself deeper.
Taking us back to the day when she got a call from TNT, Janine revealed that she almost let the golden opportunity pass her by. She was surprised to hear her mom in panic, asking her to pick up a call from an unknown number.
“Tapos nung sinagot ko po, sabi sa akin, ‘Gusto mo bang sumali o hindi?’ Kasi matagal daw po akong kinontact kaso hindi ko po nakita ‘yung message. Kasi ‘yung mga kapatid ko naglalaro sa phone ng Mama ko kaya hindi ko po nareplyan agad. Buti nga po nabigyan pa rin ako ng chance,” she said. .Janine added that she only wanted to sing on national TV.
When asked if she’s open to dating a fan, the new “Gem of OPM” answered that everyone is equal and at her age, she doesn’t dwell on the image of her ideal guy.
