You know her as the Random Girl who shot to fame singing Jennifer HolidayÆs ôAnd I am Telling Youö in a videoke kiosk in Megamall. There was no turning back after her Youtube clip went viral, caught the attention of two million viewers, and landed her a spot on The Ellen DeGeneres show. Even international music celebrities like Ryan Seacrest and Carson Daly joined in showering her vocal prowess with praises.
Now Zendee is officially a recording artist. Last December 12, she released her first ever single "Runaway" under Warner Music Philippines. The song showcases ZendeeÆs powerful and soulful voice while showing some vocal gymnastics with a refreshing twist.
ôHaving my own song is something that I used to just imagine. Singers recording songs in studios were something that I used to just watch on TV. I never thought that I will also be able to do it and with a major label at that! I feel so blessed, this is really a dream come true!,ö exclaims the 21-year-old from General Santos City, clearly giddy from how far she has gone.
"Runaway" is about not allowing difficulties to get in the way of your dreams, just like Zendee did. The song was written by Andrew Fromm, who has also written for the likes of The Backstreet Boys, Nsync and K-ci & JoJo. His songs appear in over 45 million albums worldwide and he is quite excited to work with a world class Filipino talent like Zendee.
"I'm honored to have co-written a song that I hope will skyrocket Zendee to #1. She has a fantastic voice. It's always insanely exciting to watch such a gifted artist record and release a song you pour your heart into. That said, I wish Zendee nothing but the absolute best and I pray wherever Runaway is released, it's embraced by all" shares Fromm.
Aside from being Zendee's first single and first song as a recording artist, ôRunawayö is also the first local recording to be mastered for iTunes for the Philippines by Warner Music Philippines and Asia Pacific. This means that the recording is digitally optimized for increased audio quality in digital format.
