Khimo Gumatay, Ryssi Avila, Kice, Ann Raniel, and Bryan Chong feel blessed to be part of the biggest talent reality show in the country, Idol Philippines Season 2, and shared how it made a difference in their lives.
“Idol Philippines was indeed a humbling experience and also a blessing,” says grand winner Khimo.
He also thanked the people who pushed him in joining the competition. “Actually po, I wasn’t supposed to join Idol Philippines, pero sa tulong po ng mga taong nakapaligid po sa’kin na mag-push po talaga na sumali dito. Ngayon po, I’m beyond thankful po na sumali po ako rito sa Idol Philippines,” he adds.
For Ryssi, the competition allowed her to clean her name and for her talent to outshine the controversies thrown at her.
“Idol changed my life, it gave me a chance to showcase my talent at iyon ang tignan nila at hindi yung mga controversy na nagdaan sa buhay ko,” she says.
Kice mentioned that the show made him closer to his loved ones. “Yung family ko from all over the world, they connected even mga family members ko na hindi ko kilala, naglalabasan lang because they watch me,” he shared.
Ann and Bryan are also grateful for the opportunity that was given to them and how the show recognized their talents.
Last Sunday (September 25), the Top 5 were welcomed to the ASAP Natin To family as they performed with other Top 12 contestants. Currently, the originals for the Idol Philippines Top 5, namely “My Time” by Khimo, “Totoo Na ‘To” by Ryssi, “Angels” by Kice, “Sa Wakas” by Bryan Chong, “Power” by Ann Raniel, and “Ang Pinakaiibigin” by Delly Cuales, are now available on Spotify and other various music platforms.
