That’s how singer-songwriter Reymond Sajor captured in one word his whole experience in Indonesia’s Golden Memories Asia. The singer-songwriter and theater actor, who first gained popularity as a Philippine Idol grand finalist in 2006, finished off as the Top 6 finalist in the talent search held in Jakarta, Indonesia from September to October last year.
“Golden Memories Asia is a talent search in Indonesia and it’s their first time to invite people from different countries to participate. They already had two seasons in the past, but were only participated in by Indonesian residents,” Reymond shared.
Influenced by OPM icons Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Ariel Rivera, and Ogie Alcasid growing up, Reymond made a mark as a balladeer. Performing songs from the pop music genre, he was recently a part of the award-winning pop vocal group 5thGen with other members Marielle Mamaclay, Lady Onnagan, and RJ Buena.
Asked about how his Philippine Idol stint has helped him in his singing career, Reymond said, “From that experience, I learned to be positive all the time, forget the past so that new and great things will come to you. I also learned that it’s good to lift everything up to God but not to ever forget to do your part, too. You have to do your best all the time and value all the people who are supporting you.”
When it comes to support, there is so much love for our singer-songwriter. His fanbase has definitely extended overseas. In fact, Reymond already had two meet-and-greet gatherings with his Indonesian fans.
“I had meet-and-greet events with my supporters there. They’re really sweet and once they like you, they will be loyal to you. Both gatherings went very well and I really had a great time with all of them. The experience was both overwhelming and touching. They wanted me to stay and have a career there,” he said.
