GMA Network’s The Clash alumni Jong Madaliday, Garrett Bolden, and Anthony Rosaldo are all set to take the spotlight and showcase their undeniable talent in the music scene.
Apart from being mainstays of the musical variety show Studio 7, the three up-and-coming singers have recently launched their individual debut singles under GMA Music.
Jong’s single, entitled “Ano Ba,” was included in the list of “Most Wanted Song of the Week” in Barangay LS 97.1’s The Big Ten weekly countdown. It also hit the second spot of The Big Ten weekly countdown of Barangay LS 97.1 last Feb. 16.
Known for his notable R&B musicality, Jong feels inspired to create more songs that would elicit positive impact on people’s lives.
“I’m that listeners like my song. It’s a different feeling when you share a piece of yourself with other people through a song. Simula pa lang ito kaya sana suportahan pa nila ang mga gagawin naming kanta dahil para sa kanila lahat ng ito,” he shared.
Meanwhile, Garrett’s “Lilipad Na” was on #43 of iTunes PH chart. Phillip Lazaro directed the single’s music video, which showcases the works of abstract artist Nadine Ibay, Garrett’s leading lady in the video. It premiered on GMA Music’s Youtube channel on Feb. 28.
He feels grateful for the opportunities coming his way and the immense support he has been receiving, “I feel so overwhelmed because there’s so many people who appreciate the single. Sa totoo lang, mas na-inspire akong magsulat ng mga original at bagong kanta dahil nakaka-motivate ang messages galing sa listeners at sa appreciation nila sa kanta.”
On Feb. 6, Anthony launched his single “Larawan Mo.” On the day of its release, the song was part of Twitter’s trending topics and soared to the top spot on iTunes PH chart for three consecutive days. It also landed in the Top 7 of the Top 30 Singles Chart of Top 30 Asia Philippines.
“The song tells a story that is relatable to the listeners. ‘Larawan Mo’ tells a story about someone who fell in love with a person who is already taken…That your heart can’t choose who to fall in love with. Pinaparating nito na some love stories may not be bound to have a happy ending, pero you always have an option to choose the right thing to do,” explained Anthony.
The songs are also available for download and streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes and other digital stores worldwide. The official music videos are now available for streaming on GMA Music’s Youtube channel.
