Try A Liezel Tenderness

Pinoy Dream Academy’s Liezel Garcia releases her first self-titled album under Star Records

There's a familiar tune which plays every time there is a dramatic scene in the ABS-CBN Korean series "Pure Love". I'm sure you recognize the melodic song I am referring to and I'm also confident that you recognize the singer behind the tender voice. 

We have another talented diva who is ready to wow us all. A product of TV reality show Pinoy Dream Academy, Liezel Garcia made headlines by interpreting TV series theme songs which made it big in the airwaves. Songs like "Bakit Pa" (OST- "Kung Ako'y Iiwan Mo"), "Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin" (OST- "PHR Presents"), "Di Ko Kayang Limutin" (OST- "Kristine"), and the one I was referring to earlier, "Pure Love's" "Gisingin Ang Puso"

However, Liezel is not the only one who is giving ABS-CBN's drama series beautiful musical backgrounds. Aside from Erik Santos, Jed Madela, Bryan Termulo, Bugoy Drilon, Martin Nievera, and Gary Valenciano, another fast-rising star, Angeline Quinto, is also claiming the "Princess of Teleserye Themesong" title. 

"Wala po!", Liezel's eyes grew wide when asked by bloggers during a press conference in a restaurant in Quezon City last August 30,  if there was a competition between her and Angeline. She laughed and handled the challenging question pretty well and online writers around could not help but applaud her. "Siya po naman talaga ang nauna. So OK na po na wala akong title. Gusto ko lang po kumanta", Liezel added. 

Liezel's chosen route to maintain a humble profile is doing her a favor. In fact, her greatest career break just happened when she released her self-titled album under Star Records. The album contains nine tracks, 5 of them are songs she recorded for several drama series. There is also one song she recorded with real-life boyfriend and also a recording artist Bugoy Drilon entitled "Wag Ka Lang Mawawala". "Finally, my album nako!", the young singer said with a smile. "Sana po maging hit para may kasunod pa", she said further. 

Liezel shared that her greatest musical influence is Beyonce. "Pag naliligo ako, songs niya kinakanta ko. I always enjoy singing her songs and the way she dresses", Liezel narrated. So it needed no explanation when Liezel Garcia didn't have a hard time picking a song when the bloggers asked her a "sample". She sang Beyonce's "Best Thing I Never Had". Ending her afternoon chat with online writers with a glimmer of optimism in her eyes, she hoped; "Sana po talaga magustuhan to ng tao. I just really wanna make my own music"

As of this writing, I just heard all 9 tracks included in Liezel's album and I have a huge feeling you guys will enjoy it the same as I did. Let's support original Filipino music! Liezel Garcia's self-titled album is available in major record stores nationwide!
