Angeline Quinto

Angeline Quinto is no stranger to offers for her to seek public office. Recently, she has been asked to run for councilor in Sampaloc, Manila. But she turned all of them down, she said, because she doesn’t have the experience or knowledge to hold a position.

“To be honest, there are some people asking, especially in Sampaloc, but I declined … I don’t want to enter something I don’t know anything about. Ayoko naman ng ganun. Baka mamaya, ano lang ang gawin ko doon!” she said in a virtual conference for her 10-part digital concert series “10Q: Ten Years of Angeline Quinto.”

“There were people approaching me even earlier, about two years ago,” she said, adding that she used to ask her late adoptive mother, Mama Bob, for advice about the matter. “She told me, ‘It’s too early for that. And why would you enter [politics] when you already have your hands full with work?’” she recalled.

But while she doesn’t see herself going down that path any time soon, Angeline isn’t closing her doors on the possibility. “I thought, ‘Wherever God’s guidance leads me …’ if it will give you a wider reach to help others, why not?” the singer said. “I just can’t make a decision right now, but I’m not closing myself up.”
