What Jona will do for her late father at concert

Jona was brought to tears at her "Prima Jona" press conference yesterday, November 13, when asked if she would have a tribute performance for her late father at her concert.

“Napaka-ironic nga po ng pagkakataon kasi meron po akong isang line-up sa concert na, itong songs na ‘to dedicated sa mga loved ones natin na, kumbaga, naglo-long tayo sa presence nila,” she said. “So, after po nung mangyari na ‘yun sa father ko po, parang sabi ko, ‘Bakit naman naging ganito?’”

“Iniisip ko po sa sarili ko, ‘Kakayanin ko bang kantahin ‘tong mga ‘to? Baka mamaya umiyak lang ako nito.’ Pero wala, kailangan ko po talagang harapin ‘yun. So, I think ‘yun po ‘yung magiging challenge sa ‘kin - kung paano ko made-deliver ko ‘yung performance nang maayos kahit sobrang tagos na tagos po talaga ‘yung mga kantang kakantahin ko,” Jona said. 

At the query of the press, the singer shared how she found out about her father’s passing while at Regine Velasquez-Alcasid’s concert last October 21, “R3.0.”  

“During my performance daw po, nag-message po ‘yung mga tita ko, ‘yung mga kapatid ko, na ‘Ate, wala na si Daddy.’ Pero siyempre, on-stage po ako nun eh so wala akong idea at all,” she started. “Ang nakakaalam lang po that time si manager ko po. So pagbaba ko po ng stage, going back to the dressing room, dun na po sa ‘kin sinabi na ‘Jona, wala ‘yung Daddy mo.’ Tapos parang, alam niyo po ‘yung sa pelikula na parang bumuhos ‘yung langit? Parang ‘yung world mo nag-fall apart talaga - dun po ako napa-breakdown, napaiyak.” 

She expressed her gratitude to her fellow singers for supporting her that night. 

“Talagang nagparamdam po sila ng suporta, ng simpatya, ng concern,” she said. 

“And even si Ms. Mikee Cojuangco, pinuntahan po niya ako sa dressing room to comfort me,” she added.  

Catch Jona at her concert “Prima Jona” on November 18, 8 p.m., at The Theatre at Solaire. Joining her will be the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Gerard Salonga, with special guests Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and tenor Arman Ferrer.
