JM Yosures

It has been more than a year since JM Yosures won in the fourth season of It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tahanan (TNT), and he is definitely counting his blessings. (ay pwede po ba maki-bilang?!)

“I used to think that singing competitions are rigged, na kailangan may connections ka para manalo sa mga contests. TNT changed my perspective dahil simula umpisa grabe itinuro sa aming disiplina sa industriya. They really taught me that hardwork will lead you somewhere. Combine it with authenticity, you’ll create a wonderful connection with the music-loving Pinoys. Bonus na lang ang swerte kaya po ako nanalo,” JM shares. (baka naman may pa-bonus ka dyan!)

Aside from his regular gigs on ABS-CBN, he is also now part of TNT’s panel for aspiring contestants. (ay mag-a-audition po ako!)

“Looking back hindi ko talaga lubos maisip na dadating ako sa point na ‘to. I’m thankful sa mga winnings ko from TNT pero ang lakas maka-champion yung feeling na nakaka-inspire ka ng kapwa mo singer. Na baka meron ding tulad ko na dati na parang in-denial sa pangarap pero dahil nasaksihan niya yung istorya ko ay madudugtungan yung dream niyang maging singer,” JM says (parang in-denial din ata ako!)

The 23-year-old BS Industrial Engineering graduate at the University of the Philippines Diliman, is the new singer of the series Maalaala Mo Kaya’s theme song. (ay, ano sabi ni Ms Dulce?!) “It’s an honor to be the new voice of MMK after several years po. Masaya kasi nung una ay na-feature yung story ko sa MMK pero ngayon mapapakinggan ko na ang sarili kong boses sa bawa’t istorya na mapapanood ng maraming Pilipino.” (musta po ko kay Ma’am Charo!)

He is also now busy promoting his single “Panata.” “The song ‘Panata’ is written by me and my idol Kuya Kix Salazar. Our inspiration for ‘Panata’ is our respective past toxic relationships. Sabi nga namin, theme song ‘to ng pag-b-break free sa pagkadena natin sa mga sarili natin sa toxic situations na madalas tayo rin ang dahilan.” (minsan parang may thrill yung may kadena!)

The former overseas Filipino worker admits that being part of the ABS-CBN family puts pressure on him because he gets to work with popular and talented performers. But he takes this as a challenge and inspiration to do give his best shot. (ako ata ang alam ko lang makipag-shot sa mga boys!)

“Di uso ang maging ready sa showbiz. Kailangan kahit di ka fully handa sa isang bagay, pinag-iisipan mo na agad kung paano ito gagawin ng mahusay. Maraming opportunities sa showbiz pero mas maraming mga talented artists na handang i-grab ‘to. Once you are given an opportunity, grab na agad. Saka na papasok ang hardwork para maging ready ka in the process,” JM believes. (dapat mai-process ko na rin ang career ko!)
