Is it right to think you were discovered while drinking at a bar?
Ha ha! It’s actually close to that. I was in a disco with my family and an ABS-CBN staff caught me singing on stage, jamming with the band. They thought I was fit to be a host so they approached me.
So that’s where everything started?
No. I’d say my career started out in my hometown in Davao City. I was already a host for a local variety TV show there, and from there I’d had a TV show stint and commercial gigs here in Manila.
