SINGER-composer Yeng Constantino has said that she has a very understanding husband who supports her in all her projects in show business.
“Buti na lang understanding s’ya and he knows na dream ko po talaga ito,” said Constantino during an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
Constantino, 27, is married to fellow musician and worship director Victor “Yan” Asuncion. They tied the knot at a resort in Tagaytay on Feb. 14, 2015.
The pop-rock singer also said that she and her husband prayed for all her projects to come true.
“Lahat po ng nangyayari sa career ko ngayon pinagdasal po namin sa faith goals namin. Every year, imbes na New Year’s resolution, naglilista kami ng mga things na ipinapanalangin namin kay God. And then we check it,” she said.
‘Pinoy Boy Band Superstar’
Constantino said that she will sit as judge for the new talent search dubbed “Pinoy Boy Band Superstar” on the Kapamilya network.
“Naghahanap kami ng mga hindi lang gwapo na guys kundi may talent din na kayang magpakilig sa mga kababaihan natin,” she said. “We’re looking for the next biggest boy band in history.”
As judge in the boy band search, Constantino said that she will put herself into the shoes of a fan.
“’Yan, I love you with all my heart but s’yempre bilang isang judge, nilalagay ko ’yung sarili ko sa sapatos ng isang fan. Ano ba yung magugustuhan ko? Ano ba yung magpapakilig sa akin? Para may koneksyon kami ng mga girls kasi may mga kasama kaming girls dun eh.
“Pag-tumibok na ’yung puso ko, ’yun na. Iba-iba kasi ang elemento rito. Sobrang gwapo pero nakulangan ng konting talent. So you have to compromise kasi syempre, iniisip mo rin ’yung marketable na miyembro. Kung ano ba ang idadagdag n’ya sa grupo.
“May iba namang sakto ang itsura pero sobrang talented so pasok din s’ya. So kung lalaylay masyado ’yung talent, ako siguro bilang judge, dapat in-tune ka man lang kumanta at hindi sobrang alangan,” Constantino added.
Aside from appearing on the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” segment of the noontime program “It’s Showtime” and being a businesswoman, Constantino said that she is busy with her musical entitled “Ako si Josephine” under the Philippine Education Theater Association. It is set to debut on Sept. 8.
“Ito po ay isang musical na gagamitin ang mga songs ko. Three years in the making po ito . Sabi nila dapat sa 10 years ko, iba ang celebration ko kasi songwriter daw ako. Kailangan magkaroon daw ako ng musical. Kasama ako duon, umupo rin ako sa auditions at nakita ko ang mga theater actors ma hinahangaan din natin. Sobrang huhusay nila,” she said.
In April, Constantino went international after her song “Wonderful Life (Mi Oh My) became part of the movie soundtrack of the animated film “Angry Birds the Movie.”
Constantino shot to fame when she won the grand prize in “Pinoy Dream Academy” inaugural season in 2006. She also composed popular Filipino songs such as “Hawak Kamay,” “Chinito,” “Ikaw,” among others.
