Aside from negotiating with his trading and brokerage business, Manny Torres, dad of “Pusong Bato” original singer Aimee Torres, is seriously contemplating a restructured music career for his daughter in the Visayas.
Manny has been to Ormoc City to also navigate the opportunity to reintroduce the song “Pusong Bato” to the Visayan populace uniquely.
“Madalas din po akong mag-promote sa Visayas. Naikot ko na po halos ang mga lugar sa Visayas and Mindanao. (I always promoted by song in the Visayas. I was able to go around the many places in the Visayas and Mindanao),” informed Aimee.
During my talk with lady Torres, she said that her dad was on his way to Manila from Ormoc City to possibly talk to investors.
“Marami rin po kaming naging kaibigan sa Leyte, sa Samar, sa Cebu, sa Bacolod, sa Davao at kung saan-saan pa nang dahil sa ‘Pusong Bato’ (We already built many friendships in various places because of the song),” Aimee quipped.
In the spirit of reinvention, the Torreses are planning to have a new form of promotion for “Pusong Bato”.
“Nagbabalak po kaming gawing pelikula ang kanta. Nag-isip na nga po kami ng mga bagay na puwedeng gawin para sa pelikula. Pati budget, inisip na namin (We want to translate the song into film. As a matter of fact, we have thought of ways and means what to do with the movie version including the budget),” disclosed the singer.
“Pero biglang nagka-pandemic kaya biglang natigil ang mga plano. Sana naman ay pag maganda na ang sitwasyon ay maituloy namin ang mga plano (But the COVID-19 pandemic struck so all the plans were deferred. I hope that if the situation improves we can go on with the plans),” she said.
The film, Aimee said, could be shown in different parts of the country as she sings her signature song.
