Maja Salvador’s first album up for grabs this March
There’s a reason why we’ve seen less of Maja Salvador on the big screen lately. The Dance Princess of the Philippines had been flexing her vocal muscles for the past few months as she launches her first recording album entitled ‘Believe’ on 30 March.
Believe will be the actress’ first foray into a singing career — an amazing feat considering Maja has already shown how talented she is in the fields of dancing and acting. Maja is a staple in ABS-CBN’s live Sunday variety show All-Star Sunday Afternoon Party (ASAP) as co-host and performer. She had also received a Gawad Urian Best Actress and a Film Academy of the Philippines Best Actress for her role in the indie film ‘Thelma,’ which she co-produced.
Her acting prowess has lately been catching much attention in her prime time drama ‘The Legal Wife’ starring Angel Locsin as scorned wife Monica and Jericho Rosales as tempted husband Adrian. Maja plays the passionate mistress Nicole who lures Adrian away from Monica.
Maja and Angel promise to bring much tension in the show as their characters face each other in a battle for Adrian’s affections. The Dance Princess admitted she accepted the complicated role because it is a big step for her as an artist.
With the way fans are reacting to Nicole, it appears Maja is really doing a good job of playing kontrabida:
‘Tarayan at sampalan na ang sunod! Dyan magaling si @dprincessmaja maghanda ka na @143redangel #TheLegalWifeDay34’ said @myegsofficial.
‘What i like about you is your versatility..nilalamon mo talaga yung character eh…i’m now starting hate you as nicole..’ said @jomz_pogz.
‘More than excited to watch it! napaka intellectual ng approach mo kay Nicole! galing galing mo na lalo! keep it up ha! ’ said @shamytot.
Last year, Maja had been on the receiving end of harsh criticism centred especially on her personal life and her relationship with Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson. But she ushered in the New Year with positive energy and a renewed commitment to work and her loved ones, helping her change her attitude around.
Everything had been running smoothly since then. The good news that keeps coming her way career-wise has certainly been a blessing to Maja who still has a lot to prove to her fans and herself… and Maja never tires of saying thank you to those who back her up every step of the way.
