The darkest moments in life can turn into the most beautiful testimony. Proving this is well-loved OPM artist Moira Dela Torre, who said going through a period of sadness spawned her now-acclaimed songwriting career. “Noong time na I was at my lowest, feeling ko mag-isa ako at walang nakakaintindi sa akin. That’s why I opted to writing songs and sharing these with people.”
This made her realize the impact of music to someone’s life. So, as a singer and songwriter, her goal has always been to provide comfort and sentimental attachment through her music. This she believes is her greatest purpose in life. “For me, my biggest calling is to be able to walk through people’s journeys with them.”
The OPM gem appeared in TWBA looking every inch glowing and happy. One of the reasons behind this is being hailed as the most streamed Filipino artist on Spotify, with a total of 400 million streams. Moira said her latest feat is very fulfilling, a validation of her calling.
“Knowing that 400 million times people included me in their journey makes me feel very fulfilled not just as an artist and a songwriter but also as a friend,” expressed Moira.
It was her faith that helped her maintain a positive outlook. “I know that just like everyone, I will be better. This is where God placed me. This is where all the listeners gave me a chance to have a position like this, and so I’m not going to waste it,” shared Moira.
