Regine said it was a true labor of love for her son. All the accolades were just icing on the cake, “Everything all the effort that I’ve put into my music is a means to thank God for the many blessings he has given the past several years.  I’m just so thankful that he has given me Ogie a happy and healthy child in Nate. To be given awards for my gratitude to the Lord is really unexpected but appreciated.”

She adds that parenthood can be a source of inspiration, “Di ko na realize na being a mother can ignite all these feelings that can be a source for song ideas, melodies. It is true being a parent can change you. In this case it has helped me even become more creative as a musician. And not just me but Ogie as well.”

This live version he performed however, had its own style, “Nung na pakinggan namin siyang (Lira Bemudez) tumugtog at mag gitara at kumanta, sabi ko iba yon. Its one thing marunong ka maggitara. It’s another kung magaling ka talagang kumanta. Ang kasama ko sa song is Regine Velasquez Alcasid. Pero ibang flavor, ibang lasa kung si Lira kasama ko. With the acoustic approach doon sa kanta mas na raramdaman mo talaga e.”

For the album’s success Gloc credited the many artists he collaborated with, especially with the award won for MAGDA that featured rock star Rico Blanco, “Lagi ko sinasabi na ako ay tagahanga ng lahat ng nakaka collaborate ko.  And definitely ako ay fan ni Rico Blanco. Nung sinimulan ko yung MAGDA kahit konting effort lang ni Rico siguradong may magandang ka lalabasan yung kanta. Na kita ko talaga nung na kita ko yung vocal files niya. Kung meron 20 tracks ng boses niya. Doon pa lang makita mo na yung effort na ginawa ng tao. Syempre yung tulong ng aking producer (Jonathan Ong) napa labas namin at na blend naming lahat. Sa totoo lang na record ko yung vocals sa ibang lugar. Inarrange yung kanta sa ibang studio at ni record ni Rico sa ibang lugar din. Nung pinagsama sama naming lahat everything fell into place.”
