Edward Benosa is moving forward in 2016

If youre in the process of moving on from a jilted relationship and would love to feel good after all the pain you have been through then its time to listen to Edward Benosa's album. From falling in love, to losing and moving on. The album and his carrier single "Di Man Lang Nagpaalam" which Id like to play on repeat,  calms and somewhat became therapeutic to some extent. Im not even going through a heartbreak, but I already had an LSS to "Di Man Lang Nagpaalam" so there goes.

I got to interview Edward Benosa last year of December, fresh from winning the PMPC Star Awards Music Best New Artist of the year, the singer's influences are Michael Bolton, Bruno Mars, from the local is Martin Nievera and Gary Valenciano.  His carrier single official music video "Di Man Lang Nagpaalam" which uploaded to Youtube has garnered close to 1million up to this date.  This singer who has the looks and the voice is excited to enter showbiz if given the chance. He said he could do justice to a role based from what he has been through his life. But he have to ask for his manager's permission first, (from the actor and composer himself Arnold Reyes).

This year, another Edward Benosa presscon was held at Limbaga 77,  Sct Limbaga QC last January 8. The singer rendered a Bruno Mars original and his carrier single "Di Man Lang Nagpaalam" to the media. The heartthrob sang from the heart, that was his edge to other aspiring singers , his manager believed that he could go far given his talent and discipline. When asked for a song collaboration with today's roaster of singers, he would gladly love to pair with Sarah Geronimo or  Bamboo.

In 2015, Edward—most known for his hit song “Di Man Lang Nagpaalam” which made it to the country’s top music charts and won for him a loyal following—won two awards, one a Best New Artist trophy from the Star Awards for Music and another, from the MOR Awards of radio station 101.9FM. He sees these awards as an affirmation that he is in the right place, and that he should continue pushing forward with his career in 2016. “Sa isang nagsisimula na tulad ko, o kahit sinong nagsisimula, mabigyan ka ng Best New Artist of the year, parang enough reason na ‘yon na ipagpatuloy mo itong ginagawa mo. Susundan na kailangan, ipagpatuloy ang sinimulan,” he says.

Edward’s goal is to sustain the momentum of his achievements in 2016. He wants to get into new things, maybe do a concert, record another album and even try more theater.

He is making the phrase “moving forward” his goal for next year. He is happy that groups like the Philippine Movie Press Club (which is behind the annual Star Awards for Music) and MOR 101.9 have seen his potential and by giving him awards and recognition, are encouraging him to do more with what he has.

“Siguro nakikita ‘yung potential ko to be this person na malaki pa yung pwede ko ma-achieve as a singer, sa craft ko, na-a-appreciate nila na ako ‘yung bago ngayon, as a pop rock balladeer.”

His manager, stage and screen actor Arnold Cruz Reyes, believes that Edward will go pretty far in 2016. When Edward won the awards in 2015, he was surprised but says things aren’t going to stop there. There is much more for Edward to achieve in 2016.

Arnold says it is obvious that Edward, while a newbie singer and occasional actor, is meant to go places and encourages him only to work harder and pay attention to the advice of people who want to see him succeed even more next year. “Consistent naman kasi, na-nominate siya na Best New Artist of the Year. Nu’ng nangyari nga, sabi ko, ‘Uy nakakatuwa, napapansin tayo,” says Arnold, who’s hoping Edward will be able to build on his past achievements to have an even greater year in 2016.

Edward says that one way of ensuring a better year in 2016 is also to stay positive and not to mind the bashers and critics. Like when he won those two awards, there were people who didn’t think he deserved to win and asked: “Sino siya? Hindi namin siya kilala.”

He just wants to be positive going into 2016. Regardless of what people say, he will keep pressing forward. Even if there are critics, he says, he intends to see things constructively and make positivity his motto for next year.

He just wants to take everything in a positive light, criticism or not. He has a goal, and he knows what he has to do to get there. He will not let negative talk or criticism get in the way. “Kung meron man mang-bash, okay pa rin ‘yon, at least napag-uusapan pa rin,” says Edward. “Hindi naman maiiwasan ‘yung gano’n, kaya sabi ko, i-positivize na lang.”

Edward has high hopes for 2016. He is excited about all the new things coming his way, and is eager to get things started.

“Ang daming bonus ni God para sa akin,” he says with a big smile. Edward is grateful for all the things that happened in 2015, and is looking to make an even bigger splash in 2016.
