Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 Grand Star Dreamer Laarni Lozada and 1st Runner Up, Bugoy Drilon will receive on October 4, a recognition from the Asian Star Entertainment Awards as the Most Promising Female and Male Performers of 2008 respectively. The Asian Star Entertainment Awards ceremony will be held at the Mandarin Suites in Gateway Mall. “Sobrang proud po ako. Salamat po talaga sa pagtitiwala. Excited na ako. Pag-iigihan ko talaga. Ibibigay ko ang best ko para mapasaya ang mga tao,” Laarni said.

Laarni Lozada recently signed a one-year recording deal with Star Records as part of her prize for winning as Grand Star Dreamer in PDA 2. Laarni Lozada looks forward to performing songs from various genres to prove her musical versatility. “Belter, classical singer, OPM, opera, iba’t iba pa. Hangga’t maaari gusto ko pong maging versatile singer. Doon po ako nakilala ng mga tao. Kahit ano po okay lang sa akin. Gusto ko pong ipakita sa mga fans ko ‘yung versatility ko.” Incidentally, Laarni’s debut single is “Manalig Ka” and is enjoying good airplay on local AM and FM stations.

Laarni Lozada is the first PDA scholar from PDA Season 2 to get a record deal but she is not affected with the comparison with Bugoy Drilon. “Normal lang po ‘yun, meron siyang sariling fans, ‘yung relationship namin sa loob (ng academy) hindi matatawaran. Kahit anong intriga or pagsubok ang pagdaanan namin okay pa rin ‘yung friendship namin, lahat kaming scholars.”

Laarni Lozada is also being compared to PDA Season 1 Grand Star Dreamer, Yeng Constantino. Yeng Constantino has two hit albums under herbelt so far after winning the First Season of PDA. But Laarni Lozada is also unfazed, she said, “Normal lang po ‘yun (na i-compare kami) kasi siya ang Season 1 Grand Star Dreamer. Pero kasi iba po si Yeng, iba po ako. Iba po ‘yung goal ko as a singer. Nasa akin na po kung magiging successful ako. ‘Yung mga opportunities na naibibigay sa akin iniingatan ko talaga. Blessing ito kaya dapat pagtrabahuan ko ng maiigi.”
