Si Janine sab ang mikanta sa theme song sa pelikulang “Ulan” nila Nadine Lustre and Carlo Aquino.

Sa pakigtsikahan kaniya ning bag-o lang, gishare sa singer ang iyang kahinam sa musika, arts ug uban pa.

SunStar: What was your first single?

Janine: After I signed with Viva, I wrote and released a song entitled Fall.

Sunstar: When and how you started writing songs?

Janine: I started writing songs when I joined our worship ministry in our church. My songs are about my authentic experiences in life. To date, maybe I already wrote over 20 songs since I was 16. I am currently writing a Filipino song. And I’m excited about it!

Sunstar: What song would best represent your life now?

Janine: “Happy” by John Legend, simply because I am super happy with my life now.

Sunstar: What songs do you listen to when you are stuck in traffic?

Janine: A lot. More of Beyonce, Adele, Michael Jackson, Queen, and OPM songs.

Sunstar: Are you also into dancing?

Janine: Yes. I am actually having my workshops with G-Force to improve my dancing skills.

Sunstar: If you were not a singer today, what profession would you like to pursue?

Janine: I’d like to be a businesswoman. Before I joined show business, I was a business major student. But I think my business will still be music-related, like a recording studio business.

Sunstar: Who else do you want to collaborate with in the OPM industry?

Janine: Sarah Geronimo and Regine Velasquez.

SunStar: If you want to have a duet with one artist, dead or alive, who would he/she be?

Janine: I’d like to sing on stage with Michael Jackson or Lady Gaga.

Sunstar: Tell us about your work for the movie Ulan.

Janine: It was great doing the song. We had a discussion before recording it. It is a throwback song by Rivermaya and I should do it in a way that would fit to the film. My version is a little bit slower because the film is somehow mysterious.

Sunstar: What are your memories with rain?

Janine: A lot. When I was a child, we used to play outdoors; we play Patintero with my friends even if it’s raining. Rain connects to my childhood. I think children of today’s generation should experience that too, it’s fun!
