Lloyd Zaragoza tries his hand at singing-A A +A
Friday, July 18, 2014
HE PLAYED supporting roles in numerous programs on television, but this time actor-singer Lloyd Zaragoza embraces the spotlight as he pursues his passion for music.
The 31-year-old brother of singer-actress Jessa Zaragoza has been in the entertainment business for 12 year now but he plans to release her first single only this year.
"It's been 12 years na kumakanta ako. Some people know that I'm just this guy na nagpapatawa, maraming tattoo and nasa teleserye. But hindi nila alam yung passion ko as a singer. So, let's give it a try and para marinig na din ng tao ang music ko," he said at the grand launch of Jet 7 Bistro in Quezon City.
Lloyd knows that the competition for up and coming artists like him in the business is steep. However, he said he is passionate about music.
"Yung ganitong acoustic set, compared sa mga teleserye, malayo siya (sa kikitain mo). But still, masaya ako dito. I'm excited for them to hear my music," he said.
He added that his older sister approves of this new endeavor but Lloyd said he wants to make a name for himself as both an actor and a musician.
"Si Ate laging andiyan siya. But may family na siya and may work din. Nahihiya din ako and as a guy, I want to do it for myself. As much as possible ayoko siyang bigyan ng stress," he said.
Lloyd will be part of the newest family drama "Hawak Kamay," which stars Zaijan Jarnilla, Xyriel Manabat, Andrea Brillantes, Nikki Gil, Iza Calzado and Piolo Pascual. The series begins July 21 after "TV Patrol" on ABS-CBN. (Sunnex)
