MANILA – Marlo Mortel is looking forward to share to his followers his new collaboration with Evelyn Cormier, who was part of the Top 14 of “American Idol” last year.

In an interview with entertainment site PUSH, Mortel said he and Cormier became friends through social media because he always posts her performances on his Instagram Stories.

“Fan ako ng voice niya. Lagi siyang nagpapasalamat at nire-repost niya hanggang naging friends na kami,” he said.

“Then this year, she also reposted my original songs, kaya I asked her if she wants to be my duet partner and she said yes and she’d love to,” he added.

Titled “Bones,” the song will be part of Mortel’s Love On Lockdown Originals, all of which he’s written while Luzon is under quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Saying he will announce more about the project next week, Mortel explained: “In the process kami sa pagre-record separately, ako dito sa room ko, then siya sa studio at her hometown, New Hampshire. Naka-quarantine din kasi sila sa America tulad natin dito.”

The singer-actor said this is a dream come true for him because he’s really a huge fan of “American Idol.”

“I’m a huge fan! Last year, I visited an ‘American Idol’ venue during my vacation just to have a glimpse. Not knowing that this year, I’ll be collaborating with my personal bet from the same season,” he said.
