Among my many interests, I gotta say that music is my first love. Our family loved singing (most especially my father) so we always had to have a microphone or two, and multiplex – if not minus one – tapes.

Finally, Jona (formerly known as Jonalyn Viray) sang Pusong Ligaw, which has been nominated for Media Soundtrack of the Year.
