No wedding plans yet for Kyla and Rich

TO show her support against music piracy, singer Kyla (who did the nation proud when she properly sung the national anthem at the Pacquiao-Barrera fight in Las Vegas ) will not sign any album of hers that is fake or pirated.

“Pasensiyahan na lang and I will request them to please buy the original,” she says at the launch of her new album entitled, Heartfelt.

It is an album full of revivals as Kyla does her own version of Always and Forever (Luther Vandross) Over the Rainbow (by Patti Labelle and one of Kyla’s favorites), the wedding song, For You (Kenny Lattimore) With This Tear (Celine Dion) and Michael Jackson’s One Day In Your Life.

“We asked people who frequent karaoke bars for the songs they wanted to be included until we came up with a list. There were so many to choose from. I also included an R&B favorite, Wait For You sung originally by American Idol finalist, Elliot Yamin,” she adds.

The cut, For You, is dedicated to her boyfriend, basketball star Rich Alvarez. “Actually, lahat ng kanta ay iniaalay ko sa kanya,” she admits.

When are they going to exchange wedding vows?

“Wala pang plano but we both hope doon mauuwi ang lahat. Rich, as well as my parents, are my source of true inspirations.”

The album also features a 10-page colored pictorial of Kyla photographed by Mark Nicdao, one of today’s most sought-after lensman. It shows Kyla in different moods: classy, elegant and sexy. The ”new look” of Kyla truly becomes her.

Incidentally, there is a bonus track of the classic song, Somewhere Over the Rainbow (alternative version) in the album. Kyla loves the song so much and has been singing it since she was 14. “The song makes me relive my childhood,” she confessed. “I also love the song because of the beautiful message it conveys.”

It can be remembered that through Over the Rainbow Kyla showed her vocal range in a showdown at Regine Velasquez’s Reigning Still concert at the Big Dome. It was even cited in Wikipedia that her superb performance made her end up winning the audience’s approval as “the heir apparent to Regine”.

On her recent trip to Las Vegas for the boxing event and singing Lupang Hinirang, she confessed: “Nanginginig akong talaga dahil sa sobrang lamig. This is the first time I sung the national anthem as a professional. The last time I sung it was during my high school years where I lead my classmates for the morning ceremonies.

“I feel very fortunate to be chosen to sing it before a huge crowd and watched by millions of televiewers. It is one shining moment in my singing career that I will cherish forever.”

Kyla’s limited stay in Las Vegas did not give her the chance to go shopping. “Sayang, there was a sale going on and the prices were cheap. I was completely mesmerized by the beauty of the hotels in Las Vegas. “We toured around and they (the hotels) were simply fabulous.” [source of news]
