Manila Bulletin columnist and radio jock Mr. Fu, Philippine Educational Theater Association’s (PETA) thespian Gold Villar-Lim, and singer-songwriter Noel Cabangon have this in common: They make use of their voices to make a living.
They talked about it at a recent press conference of Sorexidine.
“It is important that I take care of my voice,” Mr. Fu said. “Paano tayo makakabwelo sa tsismisan kapag wala tayong boses—lalong lalo na kung may mainit na issues!”
Gold, who had multiple runs for seven straight days one season of “Rak Of Aegis,” takes care of her voice by keeping two things in mind.
“I learned to use my diaphragm, and after every scene, I make sure to take at least a sip of water. Sa teatro kasi ay malamig dahil air-conditioned kaya dapat may diskarte,” she said.
Those two, and lots of sleep, Noel added.
“Sometimes I do cardio exercises too before a show. I also don’t speak a lot to preserve my voice, and I stay away from sweets,” said the “Kanlungan” singer.
Incidentally, Sorexidine is supporting PETA in the 7th season of “Rak Of Aegis” which goes back onstage from July 5 to September 29. Gold and Noel are both parts of the musical this season.
“We are very excited to be one of the major sponsors of ‘Rak Of Aegis.’ We find this partnership very fitting for the campaign of Sorexidine which is, ‘Kapag boses ang puhunan,’” said Agana Pharex Healthcorp president Tomas Luke Marcelo “Beau” Agana, III.
