Star Magic artist Kira Balinger has officially signed a recording deal with Star Pop, a sub-label of ABS-CBN’s Star Music.
On Thursday, March 14, the 18-year-old talented Filipina-British, who will just be heard as “Kira,” inked the contract along with her handler Alan Real, music producer Rox Santos, Star Music audio content head Jonathan Manalo, and head of ABS-CBN Music Roxy Liquigan.
“I’m so happy and it’s such an honor to finally be part of the family,” Kira told OneMusicPH and other members of the media who were present at the event.
Since she was starting, Kira would showcase her singing talent through uploading video covers on social media. Several times, she had live performances on ‘ASAP.’ She was also part of the variety show’s girl group BFF5 with Ylona Garcia, Maris Racal, Elisse Joson, and Loisa Andalio.
While full details about her upcoming EP are yet to be announced, her music, according to Santos, will play around pop-alternative genre.
Kira told that the sound of her upcoming music is close to the sound of one of her musical influences, Avril Lavigne.
“Who among my age did not listen and love Avril.. grabe pinapakinggan ko talaga siya dati and that was the emo days and eyeliners...” she shared.
Asked what took it so long for her to officially venture into recording, Kira said “maybe it is the perfect time.”
“When I entered showbiz, nag-focus muna po ako sa acting and now na nakagawa na rin naman ako ng ilang projects, I think it’s time to focus naman on singing,” she said.
