Kapamilya artist Ylona Garcia has a message for her fellow "Pinoy Big Brother 737" ex-housemate and friend Bailey May, in connection to him being selected as one of the final 11 artists for the global pop group, Now United.
In the press conference of her concert "Arrival" last September 21, Ylona said that Bailey will surely do great even if it is totally out of his comfort zone.
“Sobrang masaya po ako para sa kanya kasi Bailey and I are really close friends and this is one of the things na gusto niya talaga so I’m very happy naman for him. He works hard and he really pushed sa dancing kasi sabi niya sa akin, ‘Hindi talaga ako dancer’ tapos at least ‘yung mga effort niya, he really pushed it talaga and look where he is now? [It’s] just really great,” she related.
After the press con proper, we were able talk to Ylona and have her say a few words to Bailey's recent achievement.
"Bailey, hi, I hope you're doing great, I just want to wish you congratulations and I know that this is completely out of your comfort zone but I know that you're doing great. And I know that although it's out of your comfort zone, you're gonna do amazing things," she said.
The teen singer also wished Bailey to just enjoy and get better at what he does.
She said, "I just wish you happiness, and I wish that you reach whatever you really want to reach and what you want to achieve in life. Enjoy and enjoy and enjoy and get better and better and better."
Ylona was also with Bailey at the Now United boot camp training under "Idol" creator Simon Fuller. Together with them were Kapamilya artists AC Bonifacio and Jane de Leon.
The boot camp made the four of them closer. Apparently they weren't affected at all by the training's competitive nature.
"'Yun ang gusto ko. And that's the way I think. Competition is not about getting people to go up against each other and seeing who wins. It's about bringing people together and seeing what we can work with," she said.
