Juris Fernandez Proud To Perform With Joey Generoso, Ice Seguerra, Jinky Vidal, Jay Durias, Meds Marfil, And Janine Tenoso In 'Playlist: The Best Of OPM' At The Big Dome On Friday, 8 PM

JURIS FERNANDEZ first gained fame as the female vocalist of the band MYMP and she soared to fame with the song “Sa Aking Pag-iisa”. She then went solo and later became a part of the Sessionistas in ASAP which included Ice Seguerra, Princess Velasco, Kean Cipriano, Sitti and Richard Poon.

She got married to her non-showbiz partner Gavin Lim and they now have two children, a daughter and a son named Geordy and Giddy. Juris lied low for a while for her family, but she has now resumed her singing career and has just released a new single, “Paano Na”, with Star Music.

She’s also part of the big concert this Friday night at Araneta Coliseum, “Playlist: The Best of OPM”, where she shares center stage with Joey Generoso formerly of Side A, Jinky Vidal of Freestyle, Jay Durias of South Border, Meds Marfil of True Faith, Ice Seguerra and talented newcomer Janine Tenoso, with Jay Durias himself as musical director and JP Panizales as stage director.

This is a must for all lovers of original Pilipino music as assembling them all together might not happen again.

Juris declares: “It’s really an honor for me to be working with all the top vocalists. Lahat sila, puro mahuhusay, may sariling following, so you have no choice but just to give your best when you sing with them. We’re having so much fun in our rehearsals, so we know performing for the audience in our concert on Friday will be a big blast for all of us. I’m really so proud to be singing with all of them.”

What are the most memorable songs for her? “An inspiring song for me is ‘This is Me’ from ‘The Greatest Showman’ that won as Oscar best song. I love the lyrics which says we should all accept ourselves as we are and we should all have the strength to face challenges in our life. You know, I get teary eyed when I listen to it and it can make me quite emotional. A song naman that lifts me up is ‘Do My Thing’, which carries the same message, but it has a mid-tempo arrangement that can make you dance. I also like my own song, ‘Dumating’, which is dedicated to my daughter when she came into my life and how she changed it. I want her to listen to it when she’s all grown up for her to know how special she is to me.”
