"Pinakatutunan ko sa Idol journey ko is magtiwala lang lagi sa sarili and mag believe ka sa sarili mo na kaya mo lahat ng gagawin mo sa buhay. And believe always that we have God," Renwick said.
(What I've learned from my Idol journey is to believe in myself and to believe that I can do everything in life. And believe always that we have God.)
Trish said that she will miss everyone, including her fellow contestants. She also thanked her family and supporters.
The competition gets tougher next week. The Top 8 will be mentored by singer Morissette Amon in rehearsing for their chosen songs.
