He’s the only Filipino artist on the bill!
It’s official. Fast-rising musician Paolo Sandejas will perform at one of Taiwan‘s most prestigious events. The Golden Melody Awards & Festival is a multi-event musical celebration. Key figures in Taiwan’s entertainment industry will attend. So will international buyers and musicians.
This is a huge opportunity for Paolo. He’s the son of journo and TV host Christine Jacob-Sandejas. He grew up with one foot in showbiz because of her. But now he’s finally stepping out from under his mother’s shadow.
Aside from joining the GMA festival lineup, he also released a music video for his single “Hide & Seek.”
Paolo Sandejas on pressure
The young singer admits to feeling a lot of pressure these days. After all, he’ll be representing the entire country at the GMAs. It’s Taiwan’s version of the GRAMMYs, and to be part of it is a huge honor. Especially for someone who has only just begun his career. That said, he’s also pumped and stoked.
“I’m motivated to showcase the OPM scene’s diversity. Despite the pressure, I couldn’t be more excited,” Paolo says.
Karpos Multimedia, the company behind the Wanderland Music & Arts Festival, helped him. They invited him to perform on the last day of the GMAs. Music lovers from all over Asia will get to see his pre-recorded online performance.
Paolo live in Taiwan soon?
Paolo is hoping that he’ll get to perform live in Taiwan after the GMAs. As big a deal as the festival is, nothing beats the energy of a live audience. Paolo is eager to showcase his musicality to the Taiwanese people in person.
He says, “I’m excited to show you the sets, and one day I promise to perform these songs live in Taiwan.”
With his songwriting prowess and his amazing vocals, Paolo might be on his way to global success.
