Jayke Reyes, nakabibilib ang determinasyon

NAKABI-BILIB ANG lakas ng loob at determinasyon ni Jayke Reyes na makilala sa mundo ng musika. It had always been her dream to pursue a singing career so when the right opportunity knocked at her doorstep, she didn’t hesitate to leave Los Angeles and flew all the way to Manila.

Hindi madali para sa isang kabataang tulad ni Jayke na iwan ang kanyang pamilya at magandang pamumuhay sa Amerika at maki-pagsapalaran sa Pilipinas. ‘Ika nga, malaking sakripisyo ang kanyang ipi-nuhunan upang matupad lamang ang kanyang pangarap na maging isang singer.

Pero sabi nga, kung may tiyaga ay may nilaga. At ngayon ay abot-kamay na niya ang pangarap. Jayke recently launched her self-titled debut album Jayke Reyes. The album which contains the carrier single Kay Palad Mo (a remake), Perry’s Will, Paano Na Kaya, Sana’y Pakaingatan Mo and We’re All in This Together comes with minus ones. The album is being distributed by Ivory Records and is now available in music stores nationwide.

Hindi nakasasawang pakinggan ang album dahil may ballads at R&B dance hits ito na swak na swak sa panlasa lalung-lalo na ng mga kabataan. Sabi ni Jayke sa isang interview, “I think, there should be a mix para hindi magsawa ang tao. That’s why for me, I don’t want all birit. I don’t want people to say that’s the only thing I can do.”

Kamakailan  lang,  isang  mala-

king karangalan para kay Jayke ang i-represent ang bansa sa Asean Music Festival para sa 80th birthday ni Queen Sirikit ng Thailand. The event was sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of Thailand.

Laking Amerika si Jayke pero pursigido siyang mag-aral mabuti kung paano magsalita ng Tagalog para lalong mapalapit sa kanyang mga kababayan. She also attends workshops and takes voice lessons in order to become a better singer. “I know it will be hard. Success is not easy. But I believe in myself and I think I have a good chance of making it. My family and I sacrificed for my dreams, so for my parents especially, I need to really push.”

Jayke’s musical exposure is quite impressive. She attended the Los Angeles High School for the Arts, trained with Seth Riggs (who also taught the late Michael Jackson), did commercials and auditioned for shows on Nickelodeon and Disney.

Masarap matupad ang mga pangarap sa buhay. Sabi nga, libre ang mangarap. Walang nagsasabing bawal ito. Pero dapat lakipan ang mga pangarap ng sikap, tiyaga at walang patid na dasal sa Diyos upang ang lahat ng ito ay huwag manatiling mga pangarap lamang. At ito ang patuloy na ginagawa ni Jayke.
