Angeline Quinto is celebrating her 10th year in the industry and throughout her career, she’s had many accomplishments. But what she considers the most meaningful involves her late adoptive mother, Mama Bob.
On “I Feel U” last Sunday, April 4, Angeline shared that having Mama Bob watch her on a show abroad was definitely the milestone she would never forget.
“Napanood ako ng Mama Bob na kumakanta at magkaroon ng show sa abroad. Kasi ‘yun talaga ‘yung dream naming dalawa,” she shared.
Angeline didn’t think they would get to achieve this dream, just like how she didn’t see fame coming her way. She revealed all she ever wanted before was to be able to perform and provide for her family with it.
“Sa totoo lang, ‘di ko naman pinangarap maging sikat,” she said “‘Di ko naman pinangarap maging artista. Pinangarap ko lang noon magkaroon ng regular sa trabaho sa pagkanta, para every time sesweldo ako, may maitutulong ako sa nanay ko. ‘Yung mga pangarap namin ng Mama ko, sobrang imposible, naging posible.”
Just months before Angeline reached her 10th anniversary in the biz, Mama Bob passed away. Angeline said she like felt like a part of her was taken away. But, because Mama Bob taught her to become independent, she learned how to cope with the sadness.
“‘Yung every day kang gigising na talagang may kulang na sa buhay ko. Pero si Mama din naman ‘yung nagturo sa’kin na kahit mag-isa ka, hindi naman dapat lagi kang panghihinaan ng loob,” said Angeline. “Tsaka alam ko ayaw niya malulungkot ako every time maiisip ko siya. Nararamdaman ko pa rin sa puso at isip ko siya, buhay na buhay, eh. So ‘yung mga memories namin together na masasaya, ‘yung mga videos na naitabi ko, every time malulungkot ako pinapanood ko lang ‘yun.”
Another great lesson Mama Bob imparted on her was to always stay grounded no matter how successful she becomes.
She said, “Kahit na ano ‘yung marating namin sa buhay, kung lahat ng pangarap mo ay matupad, kung naibigay sa’yo ng Diyos lahat, ‘wag na ‘wag mong titignan ‘yung mga taong mababa sa’yo na mababa sila, kasi doon ka din nanggaling. Nanggaling din ako sa baba, eh. So kung mataas ka na, ‘wag mo silang titignan na parang mababa na sa’yo, kasi pantay-pantay pa rin.”
Angeline is part of the Kapamilya Channel’s newest teleserye, “Huwag Kang Mangamba”. She is joined by Francine Diaz, Andrea Brillantes, Kyle Echarri, Seth Fedelin, Sylvia Sanchez, Dimples Romana, Enchong Dee, Mylene Dizon, and many others.
