Wency Cornejo on love and the song that best defines him


DUBAI – Ahead of his concert in Dubai in December, singer and songwriter Wency Cornejo said that among his hit songs in After Image and as a solo artist, the song that best defines him is actually a less popular one.

“The song that best defines me, is the favorite song that I’ve ever written. It’s ‘Walang Hanggan’, which is a duet with Cooky [Chua],” Cornejo said, answering a question from Expat Media in a digital press conference on Sunday (November 25) with the ‘90s Upload group of artists Cooky Chua of Color It Red, Glenn Jacinto of Teeth, Lei Bautista of Prettier Than Pink and Naldy Padilla of Orient Pearl.

“’Walang Hanggan’ really defines me as a person because I’m the kind who loves deeply, who hurts deeply,” he said. “If you listen to the song, it’s not very popular as my other songs, but Walang Hanggan, which means no end, that was how I was when I loved before.”

The singer and songwriter credited his musical collaboration with Cooky, the vocalist of Color It Red, who sang a duet with him in Walang Hanggan.

“We’ve become really close. We’re not just, how do you say it… era mates? We’ve become friends, because of the 90s series,” Cornejo said, referring to the group’s upcoming concert in Dubai called ‘90s Upload on December 28 at the World Trade Centre. The Wishful 5 will also be back in Dubai to open the concert.

Cornejo was the lead singer of the ‘90s Filipino rock band After Image before they disbanded after seven years and three albums. Cornejo pursued a solo career and has continued singing and composing songs.

This year he signed a contract with Star Music and is due to create an album where he will showcase himself as a composer, with his new songs to be interpreted by new artists Morissette Amon, Jake Zyrus, Juris, and other Star Music artists. GAD/Expat Media
