A video originally appeared on a forum showing Jed Madela singing for the first time after losing his voice in December due to overwork.
“These people are the ones who need the applause. Kasi ever since I started, sila talaga ‘yung nagpu-push sa’ken,” he said, as he started tearing up. “Last month, nawala ‘yung boses ko, and nobody was there. Siyempre ‘yung pamilya ko sa Iloilo, they kept calling… but it was different. Sina Tito and Tita [were] there beside me every step of the way. So thank you.”
“His voice is back and even better. No surgery as rumoured…”
They then wrapped each other in a warm embrace, after which Jed finally began performing.
Jed performed for Pope Francis during the pre-arrival program of his Encounter with the Youth at the University of Santo Tomas on Saturday, Jan. 18.
