Karen Jane Ng
Soprano singer Jade Riccio has wowed the world with her classical crossover performances and now she's back home in the Philippines to make a difference in the music scene!
As she officially joins the Star Music family, Jade said her goal is to bring classical music closer to the Filipino audience. "I want to stay here in the Philippines where my family is," she told MYX. "Ang hirap naman kasi na sinasabi nila na 'Classical ka punta ka sa ibang bansa'. Hindi e. Doon tayo nagkakamali.
"Pumupunta ka ng pumupunta sa ibang bansa, e kailangan nga natin magkaroon ng change dito," added Jade. "Someone has to stay here. Someone has to do something about it. Someone has to try to penetrate mainstream even if it's many difficult."
Jade has already kicked off her plans by releasing the music video for her version of Evanescence's "Bring Me To Life". Check it out here:
