SINGER-SONGWRITER Anton Paras makes strides in his singing career as he releases his second self-penned song ‘Binabalewala’ under AltG Records.
He composed and wrote the song in mid-2021 about people who make a lot of effort to show their feelings towards their object of affection but to no avail. Anton wanted to write a relatable song, so he wrote this for hopeless romantics.
“Gusto ko po makagawa ng song na marami po talagang makaka-relate kahit anong age po sila. Then ‘Binabalewala po’ ‘yung title kasi ‘yung story po ng song is may guy na tina-try po niyang ipakita ‘yung efforts niya sa girl pero hindi po siya pinapansin kahit anong gawin niya. Tapos doon po papasok ‘yung title na Binabalewala," shares Anton.
“Super na-excite po talaga ako nung nalaman ko na mag-rerelease po ako ng kanta. Sinabi ko po agad kay Sir Pau Agudelo na gusto ko po itong i-record agad kasi ‘yung ‘Binabalewala’ po ‘yung favorite song ko so far sa mga na-compose ko,” he adds.
He also sends a message to all hopeless romantics, “Lagi naman pong may failure. ‘Wag na lang po masyadong dibdibin ang heartbreaks and move on to the next kasi sabi nga po nila ‘There’s a lot of fish in the sea.’”
As a multi-talented artist, Anton continues to explore different song genres, “Gusto ko po maipakita na I can do a lot of genres, na hindi lang po ako pang R&B Ballads. Gusto ko po ma-showcase ‘yung versatility ng voice ko.”
When Anton was still young, he sang songs by The Beatles, Eric Clapton and other old songs. Until he liked R&B Pop songs of Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber.
During his High School days, he became an 'old soul' because he love to listen to Usher, Boz II Men, Chris Brown, which really had a big impact on his performance.
Anton also admitted that his friends can't believe that he is a certified GMA Artist and releasing a second single under GMA Music after 'All I Need'.
The up-and-coming musician has been noticed for his various OPM and foreign song covers online. His favorite is his version of 'Home' by Michael Buble and 'Pagsamo' by Arthur Nery. He also released a self-composed acoustic track titled 'Aking Sinta' with a thrilling music video.
His family of singers is also super proud because he is now in the showbiz industry. Even he couldn't believe that his dream of being known as a legit singer was coming true.
"Kaya thankful ako kay God at sa GMA dahil binigyan nila ako ng opportunity to show my talent. Ang palagi kong iniisip na I have to give my 101 percent para ipakita sa GMA at sa lahat na magaling akong singer and I have what it takes to join the music industry," Anton says.
Don’t miss out on Anton Paras’ ‘Binabalewala,’ which will be available on all digital streaming platforms worldwide on March 31.
And if you want to hear Anton performs live, catch him tomorrow at Pit88 Restobar in Marikina City for his show 'Friday Night's The Night', along with other GMA artists Matt Lozano, Mariane Osabel , Abby Clutario, Janine Tenoso and Wickermoss.
