On the August 2 episode of "Tonight With Boy Abunda," Kristel Fulgar and CJ Navato talked about how they started making covers together.
Kristel shared that it was Sue Ramirez, one of her closest friends in the business, who encouraged her to start posting covers online.
“‘Uy mag-cover ka! Ang ganda ganda ng boses mo! Sobrang proud niya sa akin. Tapos nag-post po siya sa Instagram account niya na kumakanta kami tapos ang dami pong natuwa,” she related.
It only took a while for people to react. “Nagre-request po sila ng full cover, full video. Tapos ayun po, gumawa po ako. Grabe naman po 'yung pagtanggap ng tao sa akin,” Kristel said.
CJ said that their collaboration started at the "ASAP" backstage.
“Pagbalik ko sa dressing room, si Kristel biglang tinawag ako. Sabi niya, ‘Uy! Halika nga! Cover tayo, kahit short cover lang sa Instagram post natin.’ I’d be honored naman kasi nakikita ko siya sa YouTube and sa Facebook,” he said.
He wasn’t aware that it was actually his grandmother who approached Kristel to ask them to do a cover.
Kristel also said, “Pero actually kung papapiliin rin ako, or ako mamimili among friends ko, ng makaka-duet ko… si CJ din [ang pipiliin ko],” to the delight of the fans present as part of the "TWBA" audience.
Host Boy Abunda proceeded to tell them that there's chemistry between them.
“May posibilidad ba na you guys would fall for each other?” he asked.
CJ replied, “All I can say is I really enjoy her company.”
Kristel, meanwhile, said, “Before itong mga cover, tropa na po kami… pero ngayon po, actually medyo mas nakilala namin ang isa’t isa. Parang mas naging close na kami. Mas may mga bagay na napag-uusapan na hindi namin napag-uusapan dati.”
CJ will also be releasing a single, “Pangarap”, soon.
