This Week on 'We Rise Together': Bini, Fana + JMKO!

The musical week continues in "We Rise Together"!

This week, three talented singers joined the Rise artists in fun episodes, with the eight-member girl group Bini gracing the January 18 episode.

In the show, the members recalled how they started their journey before signing a contract with Star Magic last December.

"Sobrang roller coaster ride po talaga ng experience namin. Hindi rin po kami talaga makapaniwala sa mga nangyayari simula noong auditions po noong April 2019 hanggang nagkaroon po ng callback. And hindi po namin alam na sa girl group po pala kami mapupunta. Nagkaroon po kami ng trainings sa Star Hunt Academy hanggang nalaman po namin last year February na kami 'yung final picks," they recalled.

Rising star Fana was the guest during the January 20 episode. She's one of the interpreters for the 11th edition of "Himig Handog."

Fana shared how she considers the opportunity a milestone for her.

"Sobrang grateful ko po kasi dati nanonood lang ako and now, I'm part of it and isa po ako sa mga interpreters. Kaya sobrang blessed po talaga and it's an honor for me to be part of the biggest songwriting competitions po sa country natin," she said.

The official poster of "Hello Stranger: The Movie" was also unveiled in the episode! You can see it here:

Another "Himig Handog" interpreter JMKO graced the show on the January 22 episode, and he talked about his song "Tabi-Tabi" and why it isn't the usual hugot love song that we're used to.

"Itong 'Tabi-Tabi po' is a different take on a love song kasi sobrang sanay tayo sa fast-paced nga na dating. Minsan sa apps lang tayo naghahanap ng mga ka-date natin, swipe right, swipe left. So this song is a reminder for us to take things slow and to get to know the person...'yung traditional kind of love," he explained.
