Asia’s Acoustic Sweetheart—Sabrina, who has 200,000 albums sold over Asia, is proud of her album ‘I Love Acoustic 6’ and was launched first at MCA Music Incorporated (Universal Music Group) headquarters in Ortigas Center last month.
Featured in her latest album are big and popular hits by foreign artists. She only not tackles about love as her main theme, she also wrote a song titled ‘Paradise’ that speaks about depression.
“I wrote ‘Paradise’ for the two people in the world I love the most,” Sabrina shared.
“Now I’d like to show it to the rest of the world and dedicate it to everyone who’s in the darkest place in their lives. I’ve been there. The people I love have been there.”
For those in such a state, consider the said song, which will showcase Sabrina’s maturity as a songwriter, and as her big bear hug, too.
This singer-songwriter, who also enjoyed multi-platinum successes in countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, and here in the Philippines—also mentioned that she wasn’t really the ‘competitive’ type back then. This was the very reason she never risked in joining singing contests.
“I only compete with myself.”
She has to challenge herself. Leaving a great opportunity to live in Canada for her singing career is already humungous of a challenge, which she intends to not just make good, but excel as well.
Sabrina believes that singing is both born with and can be learned as well.
“It’s like a seed. It must be nurtured so it could be developed and could further blossom.”
Her tips for aspiring singers—first, they should finish their studies (in case they won’t be that fortunate enough to make it in singing—they have a fall back); then value relationships; and have fun while singing or performing.
The album features current hit songs interpreted by Sabrina via her signature acoustic take, are: ‘Almost is Never Enough’ with Myk Perez of The Voice of the Philippines’ Top Four, ‘Roar’ (originally by Katy Perry), Royale (Lorde), “Wrecking Ball’ (Miley Cyrus), ‘Best Song Ever’ (One Direction), ‘Treasure’ (Bruno Mars), ‘We Can’t Stop’ (Miley Cyrus), ‘Blurred Lines’ (Robin Thicke), ‘If I Love Myself’ (OneRepublic), ‘22’ (Taylor Swift), ‘Clarity’ (Zedd), ‘Just Give Me a Reason’ (Pink feat. Nate Ruess), ‘Titanium’ (David Gueta feat. Sia) and ‘When I was Your Man’ (Bruno Mars).
