Jake Zyrus, tatanggi sa duet opportunity with Celine Dion?
In 2008, when he was still known as Charice Pempengco, Jake Zyrus [Jake Zyrus] had a duet with international singer Celine Dion in New York.
 
This coming July, Celine will hold a concert in Manila, and the media could not help but ask Jake if he wants to reunite on stage with the iconic singer.
 
"Kapag naiisip ko 'yon, ang dami kong nakikitang new belters out there, na sobrang nakikita ko 'yung bright future nila. Minsan nai-imagine ko kung ano 'yung nararamdaman ko noon, when I was that kid with a long hair, na to be on the same stage with Celine Dion, of course, gusto kong mai-share 'yung feeling na 'yun sa isang bata na maka-duet 'yung iniidolo nila," Jake said, in a story by PEP last Sunday, May 13. 
 
The 25-year-old singer he'd be honored if he gets chosen to do a special performance with Celine, but he hopes a younger singer would be given the opportunity.
 
"Kung ako ulit 'yung mapili, siyempre naman, sobrang I'll be grateful. Pero sa akin, hopefully, mabigyan din 'yung iba ng chance na maka-duet siya. Kasi, iba 'yung feeling and gusto ko i-share 'yung feeling na 'yun," he said.
 
He furthered, "Hindi lang 'yung sobrang magaling siyang singer, pero gusto ko ma-experience nila 'yung kabaitan niya bilang isang tao. Kung piliin niya ako, thank you. Pero ang biggest wish ko is sana mabigyan ng chance 'yung isang bata, a boy or a girl, na ma-experience 'yung treat na na-experience ko."
 
If ever they see each other again in the concert, Jake would like to chat with Celine to thank her for her kindness. "Hindi ko makakalimutan 'yung gesture niya sa akin, 'yun ang gusto kong iparating sa kanya. Yes, nag-duet kami pero hinding-hindi ko makakalimutan! yung trato niya sa akin. Parang hindi ako ibang tao talaga, 'yun talaga ang hindi ko makakalimutan."
 
Jake also shared how much Celine has inspired him. "Kung mayroon mang chance, kumanta o hindi, at least magkaroon ng chance na magpasalamat ako sa kanya, na na-inspire niya ako to be more grateful at to be more thankful sa mga taong loyal, to treat them well."
