LIKE A MAN: Fast- rising singer Kaye Cal considers it flattering when people tell her they thought it was a boy they’re listening to whenever they hear her sing.
She says she’s a proud lesbian, a member of the LGBT.
Kaye, who first rose and shone on “Pilipinas Got Talent,” said she takes on the point of view of a man when she writes those beautiful songs. She sang two of them, including “Mahal Ba Ako ng Mahal Ko,” during the media launch of her debut album, “Kaye Cal,” under Star Records.
Kaye has included covers of two OPM hits in her album, one by Chad Borja (“Ikaw Lang”), another by Rannie Raymundo (“How Can It Be”). She says they’re her among her favorites (songs and singers) from the 90s.
