After being supported by millions of viewers on The Voice Kids PH Season 2, finalist Sassa Dagdag or simply ‘Sassa,’ releases her physical and digital debut album titled “Sassy Sassa” under PolyEast Records.
The 14-year-old pop star showcases her world-class vocals – often compared to that of international superstars Alicia Keys and Beyoncé – by taking on a very full and sultry character in her album. It consists of five tracks including her first single, “Kumakaba” written by Arnie Mendaros. You can check out the official music video up on the YouTube Channel of PolyEast.
The whole album exhibits a contemporary feel starting off with a mid-tempo, blend of pop and R&B in the first track, “Itatago Na Lang”. Meanwhile, “Parang Pag-ibig” penned by Jungee Marcelo exquisitely displays Sassa’s voice quality in a jazzy tune coupled with a lazy rhythm. The fourth track exuding pop feels is titled “Dyan Ka Lang” written by Kiko Salazar and completing the album is a slow ballad titled “Forever Love”.
There was never a doubt that the young dreamer would make the three coaches – pop star Sarah Geronimo, Broadway diva Lea Salonga, and OPM rock icon Bamboo Mañalac – turn for her when she belted out Sia’s “Chandelier”. She chose Coach Bamboo and gave the audience a string of unforgettable performances all the way up to the grand finals – from a cover of Lenka’s “The Show” to “If I Were A Boy” by Beyoncé.
With the undeniable talent coupled with her stunning beauty to boot, she has since acquired a lot of attention on social media. Her covers of “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, “Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis Presley, and Justin Bieber’s “Cold Water” also on the YouTube Channel of PolyEast boasts thousands of views.
Despite acquiring fame at her age, the young artist from Angeles, Pampanga humbly thanks her recording label PolyEast Records, her family, the almighty, and her fans the “Sassanatics” for their support saying, “I am where I am today because of everyone who supports me. This is a dream come true. Thank you po sa inyong lahat! I hope you continue to support my music.”
