Juris to marry non-showbiz boyfriend in simple rites

Juris Fernandez may be singing sad love songs in her new album “Forevermore,” but the acoustic singer is far from broken-hearted. In fact, Juris will be walking down the aisle with her non-showbiz boyfriend this year.

Juris shared that she is very much in love, despite the sad songs in her new Star Records album, which contains covers of  Pops Fernandez’s “Don’t Say Goodbye,” Ariel Rivera’s “Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin” and Side A’s “Forevermore.” Her new album is an all-OPM compilation of original compositions, as well as renditions of popular Filipino ballads.

“The content is about love, mga pang heartbroken. Parang yun yata yung lagi sa `kin pinapakanta, hindi naman (ako heart-broken). Siguro dahil kahit hindi naman malungkot yung mga tao, mahilig pa rin mag-senti,” Juris said at the press conference for her new album yesterday, September 26, at Chef’s Bistro in Quezon City.

Pressed for more details about her upcoming wedding, Juris refused to answer and didn’t even give the exact date nor the name of her fiancé. Juris and her fiancé are into their fifth year as a couple. She met him in one of her gigs in 2004.

“Yun din yung request nya sa akin na wag na masyado magbigay ng full details. Pili na lang kayo doon, October, November, December,” Juris said about the wedding date.

She added that hers will be a simple wedding. Only her famiy and close friends will be  invited. And her career won’t be affected once she gets married.

“Ganoon pa din, tuloy-tuloy pa din ako. Hanggang may trabaho,” Juris said.

If she is to choose which song in the album to dedicate to her future husband, what would it be?

“Forevermore,” Juris replied.

Making it big in Korea

If K-pop artists are conquering the local music scene, Juris is also making a name for herself in Korea. She released a digital album and graced a festival in Korea.  According to Juris, her album is doing well in Korea and her songs are still playing in the airwaves.

Some K-pop artists even play the songs of her former band, MYMP.  How does she feel about  Filipinos getting recognition overseas?

“Maganda na at least alam nila na madaming magagaling na talents dito sa atin. I’m just thankful na mabigyan ng chance at hanapin ng mga producers doon,” Juris said.

Two tracks from her Korean album, “If You and Me” and “Wishes” are also included in Juris’s “Forever.”
