“The Voice of the Philippines” finalist Morissette feels grateful for having been dubbed as the country’s “Next Big Diva” during her contract signing last Thursday (August 14) held at ABS-CBN.
“Morissette is not just like any traditional diva who can hit high notes. She has a very distinct tone that can adapt to many music genres. And that versatility is something that we will showcase in her debut album with us,” said Star Records’ audio content head Jonathan Manalo.
I want to prove to them that I’m not just a ‘clone’ or a ‘second Sarah’
After sealing the one-year recording contract, the 18-year-old Kapamilya singer announced that she is ready to give her all, and she’s not afraid of criticisms and intrigues, including that of being compared to her idol and coach in “The Voice,” Sarah Geronimo.
Sarah Geronimo is my idol
“Being compared with Coach Sarah is a given because since the beginning everyone knows that she is my idol,” said Morissette.
“Now, I’m just determined to hone my talent and offer something new to the public. I want to prove to them that I’m not just a ‘clone’ or a ‘second Sarah.’ I think I’m more than that,” she said.
When asked about the possibility of trying to do TV and movies, Morissette said she is open with the idea.
