In this TWBA Online Exclusive video, Boy Abunda read a series of questions submitted by the netizens and fans of Jake Zyrus. The segment kicked off with a comment about Jake’s moving rendition of “I’ll Be There” used as the official theme song of the Kapamilya series The Good Son.
When asked about the possibility of trying his hands at acting, Jake said he would like to, as long as it’s for a guest role only. His first love and top priority would always be music, and he can’t afford to commit to an assignment that will eat up most of his time.
Jake narrated a hilarious anecdote about going to Jolina Magdangal’s mall show when he was still a kid. It happened in his hometown in Laguna. Jake went to the gathering with his younger sibling and aunt, who is the biggest Jolina fan in the family.
He vividly recalls how the crowd went wild on that day. He and his younger sibling had to firmly held hands while trying to squeeze themselves in the overwhelming sea of people. Jake wasn’t able to take even a glimpse of Jolina as she performed on stage, so he boldly went backstage to see her. Jake caught a sight of Jolina’s footwear, and nothing else.
“Hindi ko siya nakita. Talagang disappointed ako noon. So, by the time na nagkita kami sa Tuguegarao, kinwento ko po talaga sa kanya,” he shared. Years later, Jake did not only meet Jolina in person but they also shared a duet of his favorite song “Born this Way.” “Solb na ako,” he said.
The last question prompted Jake to look back on his most memorable date with girlfriend Shyre Aquino. He thought of their recent trip to Disneyland which brought Shyre tears of joy. Jake described his girlfriend as a simple person, who finds joy in the little things like love letters and poems from him.
