Maymay Entrata overcomes the fear of singing out loud in the song “Amakabogera”


With more than two million views already, singer Maymay Entrata is grateful that her recent Wish Bus performance is an overwhelming success.

“Hindi ko lubos na ma-explain’yung nararamdaman ko. Hindi ko in-expect ‘yung sobrang overwhelming na pagtanggap nila sa kanta kong’ Amakabogera, ‘”Entrata said during the online press conference for her digital concert, Nov.13. (I can’t fully explain what I feel. ‘Don’t expect people’s overwhelming response to my song “Amakabogera.”)

The Entrata digital concert, “Mpowered”, is streamed on November 26th via, iWantTFC and TFC IPTV, with a rerun the following day, November 27th. What he was happiest with was the fact that the listeners knew the message of the lyrics.

The singer appreciates even more that the listeners were able to understand the message of the song.

“Doon ako mas natutuwa po kasi minsan talaga parang may mga insecurity tayo,” he said. (I’m happier because sometimes it really feels like we have insecurities.)

With the song, Entrata wants to help build other people’s confidence, as the song is about a young woman who is confident in who she is and what she has become. Meanwhile, when Entrata first learned about the song, her initial fear was how to do it justice, because it has high notes.

“Ang taas (niya) in all kinanta ko. Kakayanin ko ba? Sobrang birit. Doon na ako nag-decide na hindi na puwedeng puchu-puchu ito. Kailangang makawala na ako sa hiya ko… ‘pag kumakanta ako, ”he said.

(It has high notes compared to all the other songs I’ve sung. Can I do that? Requires too much belt. That’s when I decided I couldn’t settle for less anymore. I need to free myself from my shyness when I sing.)

To achieve success, she sought the professional help of a vocal coach named Ms. Jade, who she believes was worth it because she learned a lot from her about how to bring the song to life.

Before performing on Wish Bus, Entrata admitted that she was so nervous she felt like throwing up, did breathing exercises and even prayed.

Meanwhile, VIP and SVIP ticket holders to the concert will be able to enjoy a special Zoom after-party admission with Entrata and hosts DJs Jhai Ho and Edward Barber. JB
