I had the chance to have a chit-chat with our very own Gretchen Espina, the first Pinoy Idol winner. I was very eager to know what keeps her busy and what she’s been up to lately. In fact, I was hesitant in asking her for a very short and quick interview for she might refuse because of her busy schedule. I was glad she didn’t. She’s even very generous to answer my questions.

Gretchen: if i have three wishes, i’d ask for good economy for the philippines, health and happiness for my family and friends, and a successful career.
BI: What are your future plans? Do you mind going into politics?

BI: What can you say about Political Dynasty?
