If you can remember, Jet or Jetti B as her friends call her almost made it to the Finals until Ms. Kris Aquino picked the other contestant on the basis that the other performers talent was more Nationalistic. I had the chance to interview JET BARRUN via phone and I wanna share to my readers what she had to say......
Why do you want to pursue a singing career?
Is this for financial reasons or because it's something that you want by heart?
I loved singing since I was four and it is what I would want to do until I’m old. It’s my passion.
People including me were shocked when we heard you quit your job to pursue
your singing. Do you have any regrets about that now?
I would've regretted it more if I did not quit my job for PGT. If haven’t done that, I wouldn’t have experienced being one of the semi-finalists. It was so worth it! The experience itself is worth it!
Because of PGT, more people appreciated and recognized my talent, which is my main goal. I couldn’t believe that people I do not know would have that much faith in me. Some would even say that I inspire them to never give up which is truly humbling.
What's the most important lesson you learned during the PGT experience?
You just have to enjoy every opportunity or moment given to you. Make the most out of it.
Who were you closest among all the contestants of PGT?
I was closest to the “bekis” of TechnoJazz. We auditioned on the same day and supported each other ever since. I love them and I think they are really talented!
What was the most memorable moment you had during the competition?
The performance itself was the most memorable because it was my first time to sing and dance both at the same time… Even my relatives and friends don’t see me doing that which is why they were surprised, too. PGT made it happen for me and I’m grateful for it.
reason why the other contestant was chosen by the judges over you?
Of course, I was saddened that I did not make it to the finals. But I have to respect the judges’ decision. All my competitors are talented and each one deserves the slot. Im just glad that I savored every moment and enjoyed my performance! That for me is the most important thing.
How do you deal with setbacks like being eliminated in a talent contest?
When I was younger, I would really be depressed. But as I age, I learned how to cope with it by staying positive and trusting my God to be in control. In time, I know that He will grant the desires of my heart. Also, it helps that many people express how much they appreciate my talent, making me not lose confidence and faith.
What are your plans after being eliminated last week?
I guess I would just grab every opportunity given to me and leave everything to God’s will.
Other than singing, what other skill(s) are you good at?
I can dance a little bit. I can write songs (if im in the mood. Haha!)
What can you tell Filipinos as to what offer to the local music scene.
In other words, why would Filipinos continue to support Jet Barrun?
Being successful in the entertainment industry is really hard but I am dedicated to honing my skills even further and prove that dreams can come true.
