Richard Yap to record first solo album

MANILA – Actor Richard Yap is adding another feather in his cap as he inked a deal for his first solo album with Star Records on Thursday. According to Yap’s contract with ABS-CBN’s record label, the album will contain covers and possibly original songs -- including one in Chinese. “We’ll be doing about eight to 10 songs in this album, combination of Tagalog, English and maybe one Chinese song. I’m very excited because this is going to be a solo album. Hopefully matanggap ng mga tao yung ambisyon natin to be a singer,” he told ABS-CBN News in an interview. Yap said he has been musically inclined since he was young and this opportunity to record his own album is like a dream come true. “Actually there was someone who wanted to write original songs pero hindi pa namin napag-usapan. Most of them [covers] siguro. Hindi pa na-finalize so hindi ko pa alam,” he said. Asked what genre of music he is into, Yap said: “More on ballad siguro. I like ballad and acoustic.” ‘Be Careful With My Heart’ movie Meanwhile, Yap shared that he is already looking forward to shooting the movie version of the top-rating daytime series “Be Careful With My Heart.” Just recently, ABS-CBN has submitted a film version of the “kilig-serye” as one of the possible film entries to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). “We are going to do the movie for the MMFF. Sana matanggap siya as one of the top eight. It’s going to be a different story from ‘Be Careful,’” Yap said. Yap said the movie’s story will be different from the series such that the viewers have something different to expect. “It’s going to be a different story from ‘Be Careful.’ Para siyang continuation, hindi siya 'yung condensed version. Kung ano ang nangyayari sa ‘Be Careful,’ after that, iyon ang mabubuo,” he said.
