Meet the face behind TFT’s hit jingle, “We Are Where You Are”

After The Filipino Times released its 6th Anniversary jingle entitled “We Are Where You Are”, Filipinos have been dying to know more about the Filipina singer Grei C.

Born and raised in Lucena City, Grei C is a singer-songwriter who discovered her talent at a very early age. She had joined various singing and dancing competitions when she was a child and has gained recognition in the Quezon Province.

At the age of 17, Grei C realized what her true passion is and decided to achieve her ultimate dream which is to be a renowned Filipina singer.

“I realized that I wanted to be a singer when I was in my teenage years and even though I was still a young girl, I learned to reflect on the hardships that I went through in life and made those into music,” Grei C said.

After turning her sorrows into art, she started achieving what she was meant for. She was able to travel the world and perform in prominent hotels and venues.

Fourteen years ago, she settled down in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and met the British songwriter and TFT jingle composer Andrew Kay who has helped her with her career.

“I am really thankful for the opportunities that I have been receiving, most especially for the chance to sing for TFT and to share my talent to all our kababayans around the world. I will continue to make music and to create songs that inspire people to do good and make the most out of their lives,” she added.

Grei C has always been influenced by music from the 50’s to the 80’s which inspired her to start recording her own music in collaboration with a few of the greatest musicians.

Aside from singles about the OFW life, Grei C also spends time writing and recording Christmas songs that Filipinos can relate to.

Currently, she is working on an album expected to be released next year.
