“I was going through something medical. It took away my confidence in terms of kapag nagta-try akong magsalita, alam ko kung saan sila nakatingin -- nasa sugat ko,” she said.

“I had an injury. It was on my face. My nose went on necrosis and so bulok siya from the inside out. It was a very tough time,” she added.

Nonetheless, this only motivated the “Tagpuan” singer to do better.

“I know that I am good and that I am smart and I have something to say. I am in the process of embracing that truth about me and trying to battle all my insecurities and say, ‘You know what, this is where God placed me. All the listeners gave me a chance to have a position like this so I am not gonna waste it,’” she said.

Dela Torre is one of the judges of “Idol Philippines” along with Regine Velasquez, Vice Ganda, and James Reid.
