Janine Gutierrez enters showbiz-A A +A
Sunday, July 3, 2011
JANINE Gutierrez, the daughter of actors Lotlot de Leon and Ramon Christopher, is ready to take showbiz by storm as she joins the Kapuso Network.
Though showbiz runs in her blood, with Nora Aunor and Pilita Corales as her grandmothers and the Gutierrez clan on the side of his father, Janine finished first her studies before deciding to finally enter the entertainment world.
She recently graduated from Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in European Studies.
"While growing up parang alam ko na, na at the back of my mind na eventually mag-aartista po ako, pero priority ko po talaga yung studies dati, so now na natapos ko na yung isang goal, eh, gusto ko naman po itong pasukin," she said in a television interview.
Janine added she's ready for the showbiz life and willing to prove herself to the viewing public she has the skills to make it big like her parents.
Janine said her grandmother Asia’s Queen of Soul Pilita Corales is supportive of her decision and even gave her voice lessons.
"I went to Mamita kasi nagpaalam po ako na ila-launch na ako then she said na if I want, puntahan ko daw po siya then pakikinggan niya yung kanta ko."
Last week, she was introduced as the newest face to watch out in showbiz and Janine is very happy with the support shown by her parents.
"Sobrang saya ng feeling. I expected it naman kasi every time naman na may family thing or event sa aming magkakapatid, eh, lagi naman silang andun for us." (Sunnex)
