Known for her tender singing voice and tunes about heartbreak, Moira dela Torre has a deep well to draw from when it comes to writing her songs, including one that took two years to finish.
In an interview on "Tonight With Boy Abunda" aired Tuesday, dela Torre referred to one of the tracks from her album, "Malaya," as one of the "hardest songs" she's ever written.
Titled "Tagpuan" -- which is also the name of her two-night, sold-out concert at Kia Theatre this weekend -- the song held back the completion of her "narrative album."
That changed one day, when during a long drive on the expressway the right words came rushing in her head just looking at her boyfriend, Jason Marvin. She finished the song in 10 minutes, and it ultimately became about hope and healing, not heartbreak.
