Gerphil Flores TV5 Interview, Talks About PGT Experience and Kris Aquino (Video)
Asia’s Got Talent finalist Gerphil Flores appeared on TV5‘s “Showbiz Konek na Konek” this Wednesday, May 20. During her interview, the hosts ask her very interesting questions and even requested her to sing, which she did. As you can see on the video, she is wearing red showing that it is really her favorite color.
Before the live interview, the show showcased some video clips of Pinoy talents who made a name internationally, including Arnel Pineda, apl.de.ap, and Charice Pempengco. As a start, Gerphil was asked how old she when started to appreciate music, and she said, she was three years old then.
When asked as who influenced her to join singing contests, the 24-year old classical crossover singer said she really wants the exposure so she can get self-confidence she needs while singing. For her dream, Gerphil said she really wants to inspire the beauty of classical and crossover music.
Later, Gerphil was asked if she felt bad when she was eliminated from Pilipinas Got Talent in 2010 when Kris Aquino and Ai-Ai delas Alas rejected her. The Pinay singer said she did not really feel bad, adding that she understands that classical music is not common in the Philippines, and that she respects everyone’s decision.
Gerphil confessed that maybe, it was not really her time yet during the PGT days, and it was a good motivation for her. She also emphasized that she followed the suggestions of the judges (Kris and Ai-Ai), who both said she should sing songs that match the audience and her age. She was only 19 that time.
And although she admits that classical music is more accepted more in Europe, Gerphil said she still hopes to release an album here in the Philippines. She said our country is very rich in music, and that it only needs someone who has the guts to spread it. She was later to sing a few lines of a folk song, and she did with flying colors.
Afterwards, she was asked to play a game, where host IC Mendoza will mention some celebrities and she has to describe them in one word only. The first one was Charice Pempengco whom she described as ‘talented,’ while the second one was David Foster whom she described as the ‘best.’
The third one was AGT grand prize winner El Gamma Penumbra whom she described as ‘amazing.’ The fourth and last celebrity mentioned was Kris Aquino whom Gerphil described as ‘sikat,’ or famous. Before she left, Gerphil once again thanked all her supporters who voted for her at Asia’s Got Talent.
On her official Facebook page, Gerphil Flores said she will be the special guest on The Ryzza Mae Show this Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 11am.
