Kiana Valenciano talks music and Sam Concepcion
Kiana spills the beans about her first love!
Kiana Valenciano might be destined for a long and fruitful career in show business but the rising vocal super star reveals that although she loves music a lot, it wasn't her first love.
It was actually designing.
“I have a huge space in my heart for fashion but since the opportunities of music are here now, I might as well take advantage of that," she says in an interview with PUSH.
She figures, "I might as well do that if it is something I love as well, it makes me happy."
Kiana, the youngest child of Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and talent manager Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano, says that she draws from personal experiences and infuses it into her songwriting.
She explains, "Sometimes it is inspired by personal experience, sometimes it is inspired by something I heard from my friends, sometimes I am even inspired by other songs. I try my best to take inspiration from everywhere not just from myself."
In spite the fact that she grew up in the entertainment industry, Kiana is a relative novice and so she takes advice from her father whose judgment and standard she trusts wholeheartedly. She holds the same regard for her boyfriend, child wonder and accomplished musician, Sam Concepcion.
When asked about the best advice Sam has ever given her, Kiana answered:
"He just always tells me to make sure that I am happy with what I am doing ‘cause mahirap eh if you aren’t happy. So I think the best advice that he has given me is to make sure that I am happy and I continue to be myself."
Kiana has released two singles so far, "Circles" and "Does She Know".
