MANILA, Philippines - Star Power grand winner Angeline Quinto is the newest voice of DZMM Radyo Patrol Sais Trenta's jingle for the year.

In an interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com, Quinto said that she's really honored to record the  jingle of the country's leading AM station.

"Opo talagang nagulat din po ako nang malaman kong kami ni kuya Eric ang kakanta ng jingle ng DZMM,"

Quinto sang the jingle alongside balladeer Eric Santos. The two were accompanied by Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra and UP Concert Chorus.

"Sobrang pasasalamat po talaga ako sa kanila, kasi ang DZMM ay kinalikahan ko na yan. Kaya sabi ko sana ay mas marami pa kayong mapaglingkuran na mga kababayan natin," she said.

The "ASAP Rocks" performer also said she feels like she was reporting news while recording the station's theme song, which will be aired on June 12.

Meanwhile, Quinto also shared her excitement with her version of hit song "Mahiwaga."

"Mahiwaga," originally written by Don Manolo Villar, is the theme song of ABS-CBN's hit series "100 Days to Heaven." It was originally recorded by Marian devotee Fatima Soriano.
 
Quinto is set to have her first major concert this July.
