Billboard Music Award Nominee SB19 recalled their memorable moments with their parents and parent figures.
In an interview with the group, SB19 Ken, Josh, Justin, and Stell each shared their personal stories growing up.
SB19 Ken recounted his childhood with his grandparents and shared how much he misses seeing their “energetic side.”
“Namimiss ko po yung grandparents ko, namimiss kong makita silang ganon na dati nahahampas pa nila ako. Malakas sila humampas pero ngayon mahina na po sila.
“Dati lang, naiisip ko, dati lang hinahabol mo pa ko para mahampas mo lang ako pero ngayon halos mabagal ka na mag lakad, so I miss those times na makita sila na energetic.”
SB19 Justin recalled bonding with his family in Palawan.
“Before po kasi nung bata pa po ako, nasa Palawan kami nag-iistay parang doon ko po nararamdaman na buo kami talaga as a family. Parang ang dami naming time mag-bond.”
SB19 Josh recounted how his family was before his parents separated.
“Siguro po nung mga panahon na parang bago po mangyari lahat ng siguro problema sa family namin, nung hindi pa po ganon kamulat yung isipan ko nun.
“Nung mga panahong masaya po kami. Bibihira po kasi yung mga ganong pagkakataon. Basta simpleng masaya lang po kami as a family yun po yung chine-cherish ko. “
SB19 Stell recounted how his parents put their family first and shared how much he wants to give back to his mom and dad.
“Ako po nanggaling naman po ako sa family na hindi talaga, ano po sobrang kapos talaga. Kaya mas nakilala ko po yung parents ko na mas inuuna nila yung pangangailangan ng pamilya namin kaysa sa pangangailangan nila.
“Sobrang masaya na po ako everytime na lalabas kami, kakain kami sabay-sabay. Tapos po parang ako na po yung may sagot sa food. Yun na po yung memorable sa akin. Yung makita po yung itsura nila na sobrang happy sila, masaya na ko.”
Despite coming from different family types, SB19 still paid homage to parents through their inspirational ballad, MAPA.
