Yeng Constantino receives award in Singapore
MANILA, Philippines - Following the release of her fifth album, singer Yeng Constantino has yet another reason to celebrate as the Academy of Rock (AOR) in Singapore gave her an award in recognition of her achievements as a musician and a performer.
According to its official website, AOR is the only music school in Singapore that is dedicated to teaching rock and popular music. Its mission is to raise the musicality of Singapore's youth and to promote rock music appreciation through a fun learning approach.
Fresh from her Singapore trip, Constantino told ABS-CBN News on Monday that she is offering this honor to the country and her fans, who continue to support her in her endeavors.
"Kakauwi ko lang po galing sa Singapore at ako po ay nagagalak sa aking natanggap na honorary licentiate award. I'm really, really happy po sa nangyari kahapon sa aming concert . Nakakatuwa magbigay ng parangal sa ating bansa," she said.
Saying it was her first time to perform before a huge crowd of foreigners, Constantino said it felt fulfilling that even non-Filipinos appreciate her song "Salamat."
"Sobrang sarap po pala mag-perform at nakakatuwa na kahit hindi nila nainitindihan ang kanta kong 'Salamat,' natuwa pa rin po sila doon," she said.
In her earlier interview, Constantino had mentioned that her song "Salamat" is being taught at AOR as part of its curriculum.
