Young Cebuana hailed Grand Superstar in ‘Born to be a Star’

Jehramae Trangia, Grand Superstar of ‘Born to be a Star’


Eighteen-year-old Cebuano talent Jehramae Trangia of Talisay  City in Cebu was the grand winner in the second season of Born to be a Star, the reality singing  competition of Cignal Entertainment, Sari-Sari Network and TV5 under the production of Viva that  concluded last May 8. 

Jehramae bested two other hopefuls to bag P1 million and a five-year recording contract from Viva  management. Fifteen-year-old Hans Paranda of Antipolo City ended up as first runner-up who took  home P50,000 and 18-year-old Jannah Faye Bocatiya of Manila was second runner-up with P25,000.  

Jehramae rendered the ballad, “Sana,” of I Belong To the Zoo as her winning piece.

“The three of us had different genre in our performances,” Jehramae offered. “I would always  convey the message of my song to the Star Agents. I gave my best throughout the competition.” 

Andrew E, Sam Concepcion, Katrina Velarde, Janine Teñoso and Georcelle Dapat-Sy served as the  Star Agents of “Born To Be A Star.” The singing competition was hosted by Matteo Guidicelli and  Kim Molina. 

“Ang daming competition na dumaan sa buhay ko,” Jehramae shared. “Madami din akong natutunan  sa pagkatalo ko, but I managed to improve and rise above my losses.” 

Even when she was still in Cebu, Jehramae would persistently join singing contests from the time  she was only 12 years old. At 14, she went to Manila to compete in major league singing contests  on TV, making her a true-blue kontesera. By the time she was proclaimed grand winner in Born to  be a Star, one can truly say that the time was ripe for Jehramae to finally bask in the limelight. 

Jehramae is grateful that Born to be a Star provided her with a venue to showcase her singing  talents to a wider audience, a unique experience that could very well pave the way for a  professional singing career. By staying focused on her goals all throughout the competition,  Jehramae was able to consistently shine the brightest, a fact that did not escape the discerning eyes  of the Star Agents. 

She told herself, “Ito ‘yung dream mo, Jehramae. Ito ‘yung passion mo. So just keep on going. You  won’t reach your dreams if you just wish for it. You have to work hard for your dreams.”
