Jay-R and Kyla Together Again

JAY-R AND KYLA will have a concert at the Music Museum, “Soulmates”, on Monday, November 29, 9pm. Their tandem is well received by the public even if it’s common knowledge that Jay-R is very much in love with Bb. Pilipinas International Krista Kleiner while Kyla is going steady with cager Rich Alvarez for five years now. Both of them have often been asked as to when they will tie the knot with their respective loved ones. “I think it’d be selfish of me to ask Krista to marry me now as her career is just starting and I know she still has a lot of dreams she wants to achieve,” says Jay-R. “So I want her to focus on herself for her own growth and also that of her career.”

Krista was in the top 15 finalists of Miss International and won two special awards: Miss Talent and Miss Expressive. What can he say about the criticism of some folks that Krista was TH (trying hard) as a candidate in China? “She really worked hard, especially in the talent portion where she sang, danced and even did martial arts. Kaya nga she won as Miss Talent. Would they prefer na she didn’t exert more effort? I guess you just can’t please everyone. There are those who say she looks like a bold star and not a beauty queen, but sorry for them, she IS really a beauty queen who made it to the top 15 in Miss International.”

Is it true he asked Krista to come home when she’s being asked to endorse an alcoholic drink in China? “Yes. She’s very smart and she knows knows what’s right and wrong. She doesn’t want to represent our country while holding an alcoholic drink.”

Jay-R has collaborated with Kyla in such hits as “Say That You Loved Me” and “Back in Time”. Theirs was a meeting of artistic hearts and minds and this will be evident in “Soulmates” when they sing R&B, soul and jazz tunes in perfect harmony. “We’ll do a lot of duets, from fast songs to our own hits,” adds Jay-R. “Soulmates” is presented by iSecure Networks that offers internet security solutions with Kaspersky Lab and Arnold L. Vegafria Events. For tickets, call Ticketworld at 891-9999 or Music Museum at 721-6726.
