On New Year's Day, a video of Jessica (SNSD) and Krystal (f(x)) performing a familiar song to Filipinos surfaced on YouTube.
Krystal on piano and Jessica on vocals were performing "Someday," a song written and composed by Nyoy Volante, at the SNSD Romantic Fantasy in Korea.
MYXPH.COM got a chance for an exclusive interview with Nyoy Volante himself and asked him about his reaction to the performance.
Nyoy said that he is so proud that his song made it to the international scene, especially that it was held on a big performing stage in Korea in front of thousands of people. "I have nothing to feel but be proud kasi international yun, eh." he said. Although he was not informed about the use of his song, he said that he has nothing to do about it, but he is very happy about the fact that Jessica of SNSD performed a song that he wrote and composed.
We asked him, "What if the performer decides to release "Someday" as her single?" Nyoy said, "I'd be happy, of course." But what if he won't be recognized as the songwriter? "Okay lang sakin. Alam naman ng tao na akin yung kanta and ako ang nagsulat noon. I'm not after the recognition din naman."
Nyoy wrote "Someday" and it was released in 2006. It was a single from Nina's self-titled album. The single was very successful topping several charts in the Philippines. In 2010, Nyoy released his own version of the song which was included in his album "In You."
According to Nyoy, he wasn't able to watch the full performance of Jessica. "I was only able to watch few parts from it kaya lang biglang naputol, eh." he laughs.
So now, here is your chance to watch the full performance!
We're proud that you're song was performed in Korea! Congratulations Nyoy!
Nyoy Volante's latest album "Tuloy Pa Rin" is still available at leading record bars nationwide under MCA Music.
