MANILA – Marlo Mortel has finally released the single "Bones," his new collaboration with Evelyn Cormier, who was part of the Top 14 of “American Idol” last year.
Mortel shared the music video on Instagram which they separately recorded in Manila and New Hampshire, respectively.
Written and produced by Mortel, the song will be part of his Love On Lockdown Originals, all of which he composed while Luzon is under enhanced community quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a previous 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.
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.
