MANILA – Ogie Alcasid was beaming with pride when he shared that his daughter Leila will soon release her first-ever album.
The acclaimed composer said Leila’s album will be under Star Music and that he has been helping her daughter write her own songs.
“Nag-collaborate na sila nung producer niya and kasama niya si Marion Aunor para gumawa ng songs niya. She’ll be writing also some of her songs. 'Yun ang ikinabu-busy niya ngayon,” Alcasid said.
Aside from the album, Alcasid said his daughter with his ex-wife, former Miss Australia Michelle van Eimeren, is also taking workshops with Star Magic.
When asked about the workshops, Leila said: “It’s okay. The acting workshop is fun. Masaya!”
She is also taking Tagalog lessons which she practices at home with her younger brother, Nate.
“Nate is my favorite. We play a lot together. He’s growing up very fast. I practice Tagalog with him and he practices his Australian accent with me,” she said.
After only a few months since she moved to the Philippines to live with her father, Leila said she already feels at home and that she is enjoying every second that she gets to spend time with her dad.
