Five years af­ter win­ning The X Fac­tor

Philip­pines, the “Soul Supreme” singer con­tin­ues to grow as an artist.

It’s been big year for KZ Tandin­gan, a 25-year-old singer known for her cre­ative cov­ers, soar­ing orig­i­nal songs, and ex­per­i­men­tal style. She launched her sec­ond al­bum en­ti­tled Soul

Supremacy, held a dig­i­tal con­cert with One Mu­sic PH, and was tapped to sing the theme song of the hit tele­serye La Luna San­gre. On Au­gust 6, she’ll be hit­ting the stage with boyfriend TJ Mon­terde for a con­cert in Davao. A big be­liever of con­tin­u­ous growth, KZ shows no signs of slow­ing down. “When I do TV shows, for in­stance, my team and I don’t usu­ally get to choose the songs or ar­range­ment, so I make sure that I have a gig once a month where we can do any­thing we want. That way, I still get to fuel my cre­ative side and chal­lenge my­self. I al­ways think: I’m earn­ing money, but am I grow­ing as a per­son and as a per­former? You can al­ways fall back on your usual if your ex­per­i­ment­ing doesn’t work. But what if it works, right?”

“When you learn to ac­cept that some things are not meant for you, you’ll re­al­ize what you do have and ap­pre­ci­ate them all the more.”
