Yours truly got the chance to meet her and ask about her music background in the states and her venture in Philippine music industry.
THE WEB MAGAZINE: How were you discovered by Backroom?
Jayke: One day po I sang sa Food Republique and Tito Boy Abunda was there. I was introduced to him and later on I asked him if he can attend my birthday party.
I became very happy when he came and then I started singing to him po.
TWM: When you perform who chooses your songs?
Jayke: Usually my producer Arnold Reyes and sometimes my handler Dale Magdangal suggests. But being a backroom artist gusto ko may teamwork so I consult everything with them when it comes to the choice of songs.
When I perform naman sa mall shows gusto ko mga happy. It’s a mix of love songs in my album and happy songs.
When we were dining at Shakeys I noticed that Jayke never asked for a cold water or iced tea but requested for a hot tea instead. She is very careful when it comes to what she eats or drink.
TWM: How do you take extra care of your voice?
Jayke: I don’t eat chocolates, I don’t drink cold, I don’t eat ice cream and I don’t eat dairy before I sing.
