MANILA – American singer Dia Frampton, who became more popular when she finished runner-up in the first season of the American edition of “The Voice” is in the Philippines to promote her upcoming album, which according to her, described her not-so-good experiences.
Just recently, she got to talk with Boy Abunda on “Bandila,” where she narrated how she writes songs and deals with life’s experiences.
On writing songs, she said, “It’s just about being honest. Lots of people out there write about being strong and independent, and I’m kind of the opposite.”
She added that it is crucial to trust one’s instincts, as she believes that a person’s gut feel is right, most of the time.
Memorable experience on “The Voice”
If there was a single performance on “The Voice” that she would never forget, this would be singing alongside Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, “That was one of the performances where I really let myself go, because I feel like I was singing with a friend.”
Being a songwriter allows Frampton to express herself more on stage. In one of the episodes of the “The Voice,” she sang one of the songs she co-wrote, “Inventing Shadows,” which tells a story of a person who chose to look at the negative side of things despite of the many good things waiting for her.
“I know a lot of people like that. I was one of them, you are surrounded with amazing things yet you’re still wanting more, you’re still ungrateful. That’s a terrible way to live,” she said.
