Kahit Kailan is an OPM that a lot of Filipinos, young and the more mature ones can relate to, after all, who cannot relate to love and to forever? I did not realize that finding that one perfect song for my first solo single will be this challenging and rewarding at the same time. Thanks to Jay Casupanan (arranger-pianist) we finally have a re-make of Kahit Kailan. The only problem was how to get the approval of its original songwriter, Jay Durias of South Border.
Maybe it is true that if you want something so badly, the whole universe will be moved to give it to you. With the help of South Border manager, Ms. Sharon Inductivo, Studio Z, and a lot of prayers and support from loved ones, we were finally able to let Mr. Jay Durias hear that one precious MP3 in our hands. I was star struck. I do not even know why my legs were shaking. I had to embrace a pillow on the couch while Jay listens to my re-make. I cannot even remember what words were exchanged or what transpired that night. Everything was a blur in my memory. Next thing I know, my mom was embracing me with a wide smile on her lips. Jay stood up from across the room, reached-out his hand to give me a handshake and congratulated me. He simply said “ you made it your own” and agreed to let me use the song as my first solo single.
I do believe dreams can come true now. Mine just did. Hope you will like my song, Kahit Kailan.
