After she raised our flag and our pride with her performance in the Chinese singing competition, Singer 2018, KZ Tandingan has flown back to the Philippines on Sunday, February 11.
Overwhelmed with love and support, the Soul Supreme shared her thoughts on winning the fifth week of the competition, surpassing seven other artists, including British pop star Jessie J, with her rendition of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”
“I went to China with only my love for music, my dreams and the support of my loved ones. I don’t even think anybody in China knew me,” she said. “It felt like I was jumping off a cliff and just hoping theres a little cushion of acceptance at the bottom. I was scared the Chinese audience wouldn’t appreciate how odd I am as an artist but I was surprised. The moment I walked out, they were on their feet, cheering and welcoming me like I’m someone they already know.
“I sang my heart out and I did what I could. After performing, I told my manager, “sir, whether I survive the challenge round or don’t, I’m gonna come home happy and proud because I did everything I could”. That night, It wasn’t just me doing the performance, It was God, singing, moving and performing through me. When I asked Him to take over, He really did. He showed up, and He showed out, beautifully. Using someone as little as me to show how amazing He is. Thank you everyone for all your support! I will forever cherish this in my heart! I will continue to do my best,” KZ shared.
While a media conference is set to be held for KZ this Tuesday, February 13, the sixth episode of Singer 2018 will air this Friday, February 16.
