Bryan Chong recalls past rejections, how ‘Idol Philippines’ enlightened him about his failures

LionhearTVNovember 5, 2022

The Idol Philippines season 2-second placer admitted that his past rejections almost made him quit pursuing a career in singing.

Idol Philippines Season 2 1st runner-up, Bryan Chong, had a teary-eyed moment on ‘Magandang Buhay’, last November 2. The young singer was among the show’s alumni, who got invited to the show to share their post-competition journey.

Chong took his time to remember his struggles, and how his failures and the rejections he received, almost made him quit singing.

Asked what kept him going, despite almost quitting music before, Chong explained, “Siguro iyong nagpatuloy po sa akin, kasi andami pong rejections, parang sa lahat po ng rejections na natanggap ko, parang napamukha ko sa sarili ko na baka, inaalis ako ni Lord sa path na ‘to. Baka po iba ang gusto niyang mangyari sa akin. So, papunta na po ako sa point na gusto ko na lang sumuko.”

He then noted how his ‘Idol Philippines Season 2’ stint enlightened him about his past rejections; he finally understood.  He shared, “Ngayon po na nasa Idol ako ngayon, lahat po ng questions ko nasagot. Kaya siguro ako hindi nakukuha dati, kaya siguro hindi ako nananalo dati, o nagtatagal sa kompetisyon dati, kasi hinahanda pala ako ni Lord para dito.”

Chong is a seasoned “kontesero,” having previously competed in national television singing competitions such as The ABS-CBN’s Voice Teens and GMA Network’s The Clash.

He recently joined ASAP Natin To’s stable of performers, allowing him to realize a childhood dream of sharing the stage with his local music idols and industry legends.
