Last June 22, the Bigkas Pilipinas album was made available on Spotify and I have a track on it where I read my poem The Lamentation Suite. I’m on an album. How did that happen?
It has always been my dream to have an album — a musical one, though — but I never thought it would be possible because I can’t sing or play an instrument or even write music.
But here I am, in an album, listed as an artist, and I’m overjoyed. Here’s to dreams come true, eh?
And it’s a diverse and amazing group of artists that I get to hang out with on the album. Good friends Jam Pascual and Franz Pantaleon are in it and Lourd De Veyra, who was a panelist in my only writing workshop that I attended, and so many others.
I’m proud. This is so awesome.
Please take a listen and let me know what you think.
