Ice Seguerra begins hormone replacement therapy

MANILA, Philippines – Ice Seguerra said he is now undergoing hormone replacement therapy as part of his transition.

In a Thursday, June 21 interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda, the singer discussed the treatment, saying he's aware of the effects it may have on his voice.

"Pinakamalaking issue dyan is yung boses (The biggest issue here is the voice). Of course, people love what they hear sa akin (from me). And it's a big risk. This is my bread and buttter. I feed my family sa pagkanta ko eh (through singing)," he said. 

"Siguro yung ganda ng boses hindi naman mag-iiba, it's just that baba siya ng kaunti (I guess the quality of my voice won't change, it's just that it'll be a little lower)."

Ice first came into the limelight as a child actor. He was then known as Aiza Seguerra. 

The singer said he thought long and hard before pushing through with the process. "It's hard to wake up everyday seeing that you are in this body and alam mo na hindi naman ito dapat iyon (you know, it's not what it should be)," she said. 

He also said that wife Liza Diño has been very supportive of his decision, despite her worries in the beginning. 

Ice married Liza in 2014. He is currently promoting his new song "Anghel Sa Lupa." – Rappler.com
