Former The Voice of the Philippines auditionee Abby Asistio is set to make a name for herself in the local music scene as she officially launches her debut original single under Star Music, "Darating Ka Rin."
Asistio, who had a rendition of Jed Madela's "If You Don't Want To Fall," told she's "super excited because it's a different take on an original song of mine that means a lot to me."
"I wrote 'Darating Ka Rin,' originally entitled 'Tagpuan,' back in 2009. It speaks about patiently waiting for the right person to come into your life, and I would usually sing it with just a piano or guitar -- more like an intimate prayer or conversation with a future loved one. In collaborating with Star Music, I believe my producer Rox Santos brought out so much more emotion to the song and took it to a new level. I'm looking forward to touching more people that need to be reminded that peace of mind and heart are indeed possible even though you're alone. ," she shared.
According to Asistio, the song is about her "own journey of being single for quite a long time."
"I would often wonder and ask if there was someone out there for me and if we would find each other eventually. Naisip ko, siguro habang pinagdarasal ko siya, laman din ako ng mga panalangin Niya. Magisa man ako ngayon, magkikita at magsasama rin kami balang araw. Naisulat ko to kasi napagdaanan ko narin maging lonely at depressed dahil magisa ako. Hindi rin nakakatulong yung pressure ng lahat ng tao sa paligid mo na gusto "ma I love" ka na. Pero Hindi naman minamadali ang pagibig. Hindi rin minamadali ang forever. Hehe, cheesy na kung cheesy, pero Mas nanaisin ko pang magkaron ng pagasa at maging maligaya, knowing na mababawi rin naman namin yung time namin apart pag pinagtagpo ng kami ng 'Tadhana.' #Hugot! Hehe! So yung yung mesahe ng kanta, 'di mo kailangan magpakastress at lungkot just because you're single. Darating 'yung tamang tao para sayo.. sa tamang panahon. ," she said.
She also thinks, everyone couold relate to "Darating Ka Rin."
"Feeling ko. Lahat naman tayo inaasam maging maligaya... At makahanap rin ng taong magpapaligaya satin habambuhay. Hindi Lang to para sa mga single pero sa mga ilang beses naring nabigo sa pagibig at ninanais na matapos na yung paghihirap at paghahanap sa kanilang 'meant to be.' Meron namang Iba nakatagpo na ng tamang tao para sa Kanila. Bakit mo iisipin na Hindi yun maaaring mangyari para sayo? The song is about hope. It's about finding the right person and making a promise to be the ideal person for him/her once he/she finally comes along.
