Morissette Amon speaks up on those Sarah Geronimo comparisons
MANILA, Philippines – Singer Morissette Amon said she doesn't mind if people compare her to Sarah Geronimo, who was her mentor in The Voice of The Philippines season 1.
In an interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda, Thursday, August 11, Boy asked Morissette if she ever got hurt when people compared her to Sarah.
"Hindi na (No more) Tito Boy," Morisette said. "I'm more honored eh."
When asked to clarify what she meant, Morisette said: "There was a point after 'The Voice' na medyo naka ganun iyon na medyo nasasaktan ako at medyo hindi kasi 'yung image ko iniisip ko din.
(There was a point after The Voice that it was like this, that I was getting hurt.)
"Ngayon (now), I'm happy because people are starting to accept me also."
Morissette also clarified the rumor that members of the Birit Queens – including her, Angeline Quinto, Klarisee de Guzman, and Jona try to outshine each other. Morissette said that it is ASAP who gives them the songs and that they all work together for the various numbers.
"Pag spot ko, I will give my all. Pero iyong time na magme-merge na kami... dapat magble-blend kami," she said.
(If it's my spot, I will give my all. But if the time we need to merge [during the segment] we should blend together)
Morissette is scheduled to hold her first concert on Saturday, August 13 at the Music Museum.
