Singer Zephanie Dimaranan had already accomplished numerous feats even before she turned 18 last month. And it’s easy to say that Idol Philippines’s first winner is on her way to pop stardom.
But for Zephanie, she’s just warming up and she’s still exploring the many facets of her showbiz career trying out other vehicles to prove people that she can be a versatile star.
Speaking to Manila Standard Entertainment, the 18-year-old singer, who has been named by her fans as this generation’s Pop Princess (since no one, among her contemporaries, seems to come close to her achievements at such a young age), shared that she enjoys hosting as much as she enjoys singing.
“It’s not my first time to do a hosting job, but I really enjoy it. It allows me to connect with people. And it allows me to become more comfortable in front of the camera. Iba din po talaga kasi ang hosting sa singing. You become more natural kasi personality mo na talaga and nakikita ng tao, ” she said.
Zephanie is joining Chemist Pinky Tobiano in the third season of Grateful Tuesdays, the inspirational CS Digital show dedicated to gift-giving and sharing gratitude. The digital show also includes Jaya as one of the co-hosts.
“We are glad to have Zephanie on board. We realized that our show has younger audiences, too, and Zephanie is the perfect person to represent them,” Tobiano shared.
“I’m happy that I was given this chance to work with Ms. Pinky and Ms. Jaya. As the youngest person in the show, I feel that I will be learning a lot from them. And it’s interesting that they treat me like an adult, they don’t make me feel that I’m inexperienced in this field making my time with them really enjoyable,” the young singer responded.
Grateful for the third time
The global health crisis resulted in so many Filipino families and individuals being challenged financially and emotionally. When hope is seemingly out of sight, Grateful Tuesdays aims to spread love and joy especially through these trying times.
In its last two seasons, the show has given away gadgets such as laptops to deserving students in need, as well as relief goods and cash donations to displaced families and individuals reaching to over 35,000 families in total.
If the past two seasons of Grateful Tuesdays were any indication, we’re sure that Season 3 would be star-studded too. Having guested some of Filipino’s most sought-after singers such as KZ Tandingan, Kyle Echarri, Jay-R, Moira dela Torre, Kyla, and even personalities like Ruffa Gutierrez, Tim Yap, Herbert Bautista and Mayor Chavit Singson, Grateful Tuesdays is bound to make longtime viewers and new fans eager to see who would grace the show this season.
Season 3 opens with a bang as the show is set to give exciting prizes on its premiere night! The show also aims to promote tourism in the country as businesses are starting to open. Expect exciting tours, visits and trips to some of the Philippines’ well renowned tourist sites. Also, the show continues to be of help to all our kababayans in some selected barangays and for the online viewers, Grateful Tuesdays will still be giving away cellphone load and laptop. Plus, new segments are also lined-up to add more fun.
Lots of other surprises await viewers of the show, so make sure you catch the pilot episode of Grateful Tuesdays Season 3 tonight at 7:00 airing simultaneously on Cornerstone Entertainment Facebook Page and Chemist Pinky Tobiano’s Facebook page as well as on the CS Entertainment Kumu Channel.
