She's not the girl in Hunger Games although she looks like Jennifer Lawrence. OPM's newest sweetheart Emmanuelle finally released her first self-titled album yesterday at Patio Carlito Quezon City. She did not come from any talent search nor have tried one but hardwork and determination gave her the chance to wow Universal Records in releasing her first album, Emmanuelle.
A fresh graduate from high school, Emmanuelle had to go through voice lessons, learning how to play instruments and write songs to better her talent at singing. She is definitely a pretty face and what I loved about her is the attitude to keep wanting to learn more. She reminded me of Zia on how she adores mom Zsa Zsa with her voice quality that's so sweet.
Like most teens who have crushes, Emmanuelle wrote carrier single "Happy", a feel-good pop tune with her guitar when she was 14. Born of an American mom and a Filipino dad, Emmanuelle is indeed a role model of teens starting young at singing. She also wrote the songs, "Dear Diary" and "Tonight". Produced by NeoColors vocalist Ito Rapadas, Emmanuelle interpreted "Sandali Lang" and Jude Gitamondoc's "Sarap Mabuhay". What I really love among songs in the album is her rendition of "God Gave Me You".
Pop rock Princess Yeng Constantino also made a collaboration in the album singing a special duet with "Manong Guard" which Emmanuelle was so happy about. I loved her attitude and her adoration to her mom who was also present during the album launch. I hope my students learn the same humility and passion in improving talent because it takes more than just an enchanting singing voice or a pretty face to succeed in any endeavor. Emmanuelle will go a long way with her talent and attitude. Meanwhile, you can download Emmanuelle's self-titled album and songs at www.mymusicstore.com.ph.
