Celestine: Toni as a Singer-Songwriter

Toni Gonzaga is more than just an actress and a TV personality in her latest album “Celestine” released under Star Records. She takes on the role of singer-songwriter in her career’s seventh album since her debut in 2001. The album, previously slated for a 2013 release, comes four years after her last album “All Me” in 2010.

Toni personally chose her real name to become the title of her newest album. “The songs in my album are more personal and closer to my heart. It shows who I really am as a singer, as an artist,” Toni shares. “My real name, Celestine, means heavenly. And like my name, I believe that this album is a great gift from heaven. It took a while for it to be finished but God’s timing is always perfect. This is the best album I’ve ever done.”

Toni believes that her 10-track album also shows her growth as a performer. “Having been through a lot in this business, I have learned how to relate more with every song that I record. Now, I have a good grip of what each track wants to convey to my listeners,” she explains.

The album contains original tracks “This Love Is Like,” which she co-wrote with seasoned composer and album producer Jonathan Manalo, and “Awit Ni Ginny,” a song she wrote based on her character’s name in Star Cinema’s box-office hit movie “Starting Over Again” while waiting on the set of the film.
