SPAIN – Filipina teen pop singer Maria Sagana is overwhelmed by the positive response of the Spanish people on her first single, "Sha La La".

In the city of Toledo alone, around 25,000 people joined her and other artists in the Primavera Pop Concert Tour.

'This was my first time to perform before such a huge crowd. And I just couldn´t believe it. At first I was so nervous but then, I thought, I´m here to sing and do what I really want to do, and so finally, I got over my worries, gave my best onstage and enjoyed it in the end!," Sagana said.

The 16-year old Pinay has so far toured Madrid, Barcelona, Castellon, Lanzarote along with other experienced artists.

The concert tour will be covering other major provinces and cities of Spain like Murcia, Pamplona, Ciudad Real, and Mallorca.

The youngest and the fresh face among all artists, Sagana feels privileged to work with professionals.
Singing isn't just where she's making a big name. She also models for fashion television called “El Armario de La Tele”.

She was cast among the top 9 successful youngsters in the music industry. Her single "Sha La La" got the Top 2 ranking in a radio program called Happy FM.

But Sagana hasn't forgotten her Pinoy roots. She also participated in the recent Philippine Independence Day celebration in Barcelona, performing her second single entitled M.U.S.I.C.

"There were some people who asked to have photos taken with me at the backstage and it was a real morale boost. I feel really comfortable with Pinoy audience because I know they are music-loving people, just like me," she said.
