THE GMA Music family continues to grow as it welcomed GMA Artist Center talents Nar Cabico, Kyryll, and Angel Guardian in a contract signing held last February 21.
Present in the contract signing were GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, GMA Artist Center Assistant Vice President and Head for Talent Imaging and Marketing Unit Simoun Ferrer, Senior Talent Managers Tracy Garcia, Vic del Rosario, and Daryl Zamora, GMA Music Managing Director Rene Salta, GMA Music A&R Manager Kedy Sanchez and Angel’s co-manager Tyrone Escalante.
Nar, who has been part of the top-rating GMA series My Love From The Star and The One That Got Away, also produced the latter’s OST entitled "Gaga," which is his chart-topping debut single. The single bagged the Best Novelty Recording award in the 31st Awit Awards.
His self-penned single "Natapos Tayo," the official theme song of the film "All of You," received the Movie Original Theme Song of the Year recognition at the 34th Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards. Aside from this, he is part of the upcoming primetime soap, Love You Two.
Nar shared his happiness over this new chapter of his career. “I feel very privileged, hindi ko ma-encapsulate ‘yung nararamdaman ko. Parang responsibility na rin siguro ito and hindi pressure ‘yung nafi-feel ko. I’m inspired kasi I don’t want to disappoint the listeners and I promise to do my very best.”
The Clash alumna, Kyryll, who was dubbed as the "Millennial Chick ng Iloilo," not only belts out powerful renditions of songs but can also rap and play the guitar.
“Hindi ko ma-explain ‘yung saya na nararamdaman ko ngayon and I’m so grateful sa napakagandang opportunity na ito para sa akin,” she said. “Pangarap ko po talaga ‘to since bata pa ako, pangarap din ng parents ko, kaya inaalay ko po ito para sa kanila.”
Angel also talked about how it has always been her dream to pursue music. "Sobrang overwhelmed po ako kasi before, dream ko lang ito and ang focus ko lang talaga is acting, kaya hindi ako makapaniwala na nabigyan ako ng chance na mag-recording, first time kong ma-experience lahat ng ‘to. Hindi pa rin nagsi-sink in sa akin na nandito na ako."
Aside from appearing in TV commercials and being a model, Angel is also seen in the top-rating primetime series Onanay as Chelsea.
Meanwhile, GMA Music Managing Director Rene Salta proudly welcomed the three artists.
“Nagsasala tayo ng maraming artists na talagang mahuhusay kumanta, mga potential future stars kumbaga and we think sila ‘yun. Some write their own songs, so makakatulong ‘yun sa kanila and sa GMA Music,” Salta said. (PR)
