Jessica Sanchez to establish career in PH
“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.”
