Jong, Garrett, and Anthony treated entertainment reporters and bloggers to an intimate meeting where they also performed their originals “Ano Ba?” “Lilipad Na” and “Larawan Mo,” respectively. During their interview, the three The Clash alumni shared their happiness in pursuing their music through the Kapuso music label.

For Jong, who hails from the far-flung North Cotabato, releasing his own single and listening to his song on the radio feels surreal.

He said, “Para po sa akin, sobrang napakalaking karangalan po na may sarili na po kaming kanta galing GMA Music. Kasi po dati po sa probinsya nakikinig lang ako ng kanta ng iba. Ngayon po napapakinggan ko na ‘yung kanta ko. 'Pag nakikinig po ako ng raydo, naririnig ko ‘yung kanta ko, parang sobrang sarap po sa feeling na dati nakikinig ka lang ng kanta ng iba pero ngayon pinapakinggan mo na rin ‘yung kanta mo. Parang nananaginip lang din po ako ngayon na… ‘meron na ako nito, parang pangarap ko lang talga dati.’ Sa ngayon po nagkakatotoo na po.”

Garrett echoed Jong’s sentiment, saying, “Same lang po kay Jong na hindi pa rin po kami makapaniwala na meron na kaming sariling kanta. ‘Yung sa genre naman po, I think ‘yung mga first single namin, nag-suit naman po sa aming tatlo. Kasi po ako medyo soulful po although may R&B feel pero hindi ‘yung fully R&B. Tapos si Jong naman sobrang bubbly, upbeat siya tapos si Anthony naman po ‘yung tagos-puso na ballad song po.”

Anthony also felt the same, claiming he along with his The Clash batchmates were fortunate to be given a break.

He said, “For me naman po, very humbled po ako na I was given this opportunity to, again, show what I can do po. Actually I consider this as a privilege po na binigay po nila kasi hindi po lahat ng mga singers po ay nabibigyan ng single.

“This is a good start po and for us po na mga galing sa competition, ‘yung next goal naman namin is to be like our idols po na merong sariling mga kanta na iidolohin naman po ng mga susunod po sa aming generations. So napakasaya po and of course happy po na binigyan kami ng chance ng GMA Music to really pick for the song that would suit us. Talaga naman pong bagay sa aming tatlo ‘yung mga kanta, mga  genre ng binigay sa amin,” he added.
