EXCLUSIVE: Moira reveals the magic she saw in Kathryn and Daniel 💙

The voice behind the hopeful theme song "Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko" of the much-awaited film "The Hows Of Us" Moira Dela Torre graced our Star Cinema Chat last Tuesday, August 7.

The singer-songwriter gamely shared more of her working experience with the blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina following the episode two of "CGMagic Season 2."

(See related story: "‘CGMagic:’ Moira gets a taste of Direk Cathy. What happened?")

"I was very nervous kasi first time ko po na may director na nando'n sa labas. I've worked with Sir Jonathan [Manalo] a couple of times, it always feels like home when with him. 

"It's the very first time that I had a director guiding me the whole time so akala ko po cast na rin ako ng 'The Hows Of Us' kasi nasa labas siya tapos sasabihin niya 'Moira, bigyan mo ako ng hopeful version.' Tapos habang nagre-record po ako, pagtingin ko sa labas nakaganyan (nakikinig) lang si Direk Cathy. 

"The whole time she was just taking me to the movie, letting me experience the movie even without watching it. We recorded a bunch of times. Sabi niya bigyan ko siya ng hopeful version, ng sad, ng happy, ng promising, so 'yun I was really grateful. 

"Sinabi rin sa'kin ni Direk na second time lang niyang maka-join sa isang artist habang nagre-record. She was just so sweet and so assuring. I'm so honored to have worked with her. It was my dream. It has always been my dream," Moira shared.

"Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko" is a special song for Moira because it reminds her of her fiance Jason Hernandez.

"From before, nung kasama ko pa mga ex ko, parang sana gano'n. Tapos nung single na ako, feel good, parang I wish. Tapos nung dumating si Jason, kasi it has always been a favorite song and this is actually Jason's most favorite song. 

"So when Jason came into my life, 'yung feeling ko sana hindi na siya 'sana,' hindi lang din siya happy, parang naging happy, hopeful, scared na paano kung 'di kami tatanda together? Paano kung mauna ako? Mauna siya? Alam mo 'yung mga fear na ganun," Moira related. 

This helped the "Tagpuan" singer-songwriter put different emotions on the song.

"So when I was singing it, may time talaga na malungkot 'yung register ng voice ko. So tinanong namin si Jason kung pwede siyang sumama sa loob ng studio para lang pangitiin ako, para mas maging happy sounding. But then while that was happening, happy siya pero naluluha ako kasi parang ''Wag mo na'ko iwan please!'" she explained.

When asked about her reaction to "THOU's" teaser, Moira admitted, "Umiyak ako. Kaya nung first take namin sabi ni Direk Cathy 'sing it as you think kung paano 'yung movie.' So kinanta ko nang malungkot. Sabi niya 'O bakit malungkot dapat hopeful.' Sabi ko eh 'yung teaser mo 'di naman hopeful [laughs]. Ang lungkot kaya."

"The Hows Of Us" stars the premiere love team Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. 

So what's Moira's favorite project of them? :)

"'She's Dating The Gangster.' It's my favorite lalo na nung lumabas na si Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta. Iyak ako nang iyak," she revealed.

Kathryn and Daniel are among those love teams who immediately won Moira's heart because they are "so real. It's so authentic. Off-cam, on-cam, they're the same."

The 24-year-old singer saw a magic in them that probably most of us also saw.

"I see them on 'ASAP' every Sunday, from afar, and nakikita ko na kahit walang camera, they really care about each other. 

"I never really got to spend time with them until nag-'ASAP' Hawaii. We were at the after party and si Daniel and Kath sobrang maalaga nila hindi lang sa isa't isa but with other people. Like si Daniel dapat may prod kami together kaya lang 'di natuloy, so sabi niya 'Babawi ako sa'yo, Ate Moi. Sa concert ko.'

"Tapos ang generous nila sa pag-give ng compliments. Silang dalawa parang busog na busog sila with love. Effortless rin nila binibigay at shine-share. I think that's what makes them so attractive as a love team," Moira explained.

"The Hows Of Us" follows the story of couple Primo (Daniel) and George (Kathryn) who are in a long-term relationship and are already building and planning their future together. 

Their love will be put to the test as their relationship faces hurdles - from misunderstandings to different career paths, among others. 

How will they save their "us"?
