Jes­sica Sanchez to es­tab­lish ca­reer in PH

Tempo - - Entertainment - By ROBERT R. RE­QUINTINA

“AMER­I­CAN Idol” run­ner-up Jes­sica Sanchez wants to try her hand in lo­cal show­biz, go­ing on to sign up with Stages Tal­ents Man­age­ment.

Carlo Orosa, head of Stages Tal­ents Man­age­ment, con­firmed this on Mon­day.

“Stages Man­age­ment is proud to an­nounce that Amer­i­can Idol run­ner-up Jes­sica Sanchez is join­ing us and man­age her ca­reer in the Philip­pine ter­ri­tory. I am so ex­cited with this new deal and we’re look­ing for­ward to work with her for fu­ture projects,” says Carlo.

Sanchez has just re­leased an orig­i­nal hol­i­day tune ti­tled “An­other Silent Christ­mas Song” un­der Uni­ver­sal Records Philip­pines.

It was writ­ten by two-time Tony, Grammy and Olivier win­ner Steven Sater (“Spring Awak­en­ing,” “Twelfth Night” – Mu­si­cal Se­ries) and multi-plat­inum record pro­duc­er­song­writer Bryan Todd. “Per­son­ally I never had a silent Christ­mas. I’m a very fes­tive per­son when it comes to Christ­mas. I dec­o­rate the trees, wrap gifts. That’s how fes­tive my Christ­mas is. So right now, I can­not re­ally re­late to a silent Christ­mas but it’s a beau­ti­ful song,” says Sanchez. Also ap­pear­ing in the song is singer Chris­tian Bautista.

He said, “Filipinos will surely love this new song be­cause they can al­ways re­late to a sad Christ­mas song. Kung meron man akong nag­ing silent Christ­mas, lagi siyang natatabunan ng pag­mama­hal ng pam­ilya. Usu­ally I cel­e­brate Christ­mas in Cavite. Pag Christ­mas, maram­ing pagkain, bata, etc. Nagka­roon na rin ako ng malungkot na Christ­mas, pero kung kasama mo pam­ilya mo, makakalimu­tan mo na ‘yung lungkot.”

“Pasko sa amin, merong Noche Buena, church ser­vice. The next day may Christ­mas party pa. Sa umaga, sa fa­ther side kami, then sa gabi na­man sa mother side ang cel­e­bra­tion,” he added.

The bal­ladeer ad­mits he hasn’t ex­pe­ri­enced Christ­mas abroad but may do so if he starts his own fam­ily soon. “Baka mag­ing ga­nun na ‘yung tra­di­tion pero sa ngayon wala pa akong Christ­mas abroad.”

This is the sec­ond col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort for the two.

The two did “Two Fore­vers” in 2015. The sin­gle was in­cluded in Bautista’s al­bum, “Kapit.”
