The two were formally launched as STAGES artists in a press conference held last September 16, Thaipan Restaurant, Quezon City.
JayR and Krista join Christian Bautista, Karylle, Sam Concepcion, Enrique Gil, Zia Quizon, among others in the stable of stars of STAGES, headed by Carlo Orosa.
“Aside from being a respectable company, I believe that STAGES has this vision for me and my music,” says JayR. “With their experience as a management company, I believe they are knowledgeable enough to market me, as a singer, and my music.”
JayR adds that with this new partnership, he hopes to take his music into new levels and territories.
He is currently seen in two GMA 7 shows Protégé and Party Pilipinas. Soon, he will have an international tour for Universal Records, his music label.
On the other hand, Krista will be launched as an ultimate performer. This former beauty queen, after all, sings, dances, acts, and hosts. She is set to release her new album, produced by real life sweetheart JayR.
“I expect STAGES to help further and develop my career,” declares Krista. “Their (STAGES) trust, understanding, support and guidance will help me become a better artist, and will give me opportunities to show it.”
Head of STAGES Talent Group Carlo Orosa expressed that he is impressed by the artistry of JayR as a music person and Krista’s love and dedication for performing.
“To partner with both JayR and Krista, who are both very talented, is a great honor and privilege for our humble agency, “ says Carlo. “STAGES is proud to have them in our stable of stars.”
Not everybody knows that JayR is the star of STAGES’ very first musical production Footloose, so this partnership is sort of a homecoming for the Prince of Soul also.
