PH’s Best Voices Unite for Charity Single ‘The Prayer’!

It was a song that the award-winning choir was used to singing whenever they went on tour, but one performance stood out and touched the hearts of people around the world.

It all started when the internationally renowned Filipino choral group – the Loboc Children’s Choir of Loboc, Bohol – sang the Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli classic ‘The Prayer’ on national television.

Like a ripple, the message of hope from these children who are earthquake survivors themselves inspired many other Filipinos to do their share in helping their countrymen recover from the disaster.

To amplify these children’s voices, the Philippines’ biggest music artists came together to join the choir, give life to the song anew, and help Filipinos affected not just by the Bohol earthquake but also by the recent super typhoon that ravaged Leyte, Samar and nearby regions.

“These children may be from Bohol, but their innocent voices represent not just their home province but also earthquake-damaged Cebu, war-stricken Zamboanga, and typhoon-devastated Leyte, Samar and Iloilo — all of whom are praying for a miracle to allow them to rebuild their lives,” said Ramon Chuaying of the Philippine Association of the Record Industry (PARI).

“We asked the help of various Filipino artists, to lend their voices, to represent our country and show the world that the Philippines has one voice, one prayer — that we work together to help our countrymen rebuild their lives brick by brick,” he added.

According to Ito Rapadas of Universal Records, who produced and recorded the song, convincing the artists to contribute was easy once they appreciated and understood the uniqueness of the project.

“A couple of the popular artists who agreed to sing the song inquired why instead of using a new and original Filipino song, we used a foreign song for this project. We said the project was started and inspired by the viral video of the Loboc Children’s Choir singing in an impromptu manner in front of the rubble of the old church of Loboc after the earthquake,” said Rapadas.

“We highlighted the children’s choir and their choice of song which is The Prayer, not only because they started the idea, but because they are survivors of a natural disaster and they represent the resiliency of all survivors of both the Bohol earthquake and Typhoon Yolanda,” Rapadas added.

For this project the PARI worked with DDB Philippines to gather 23 music artists to record ‘The Prayer’ with the Loboc Children’s Choir. The song was released by Smart Music through its SPINNR digital music store (spinnr.ph) and all proceeds will go to the Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation’s Help.PH initiative to help in the immediate relief and community rebuilding efforts in affected areas through resettlement, education and livelihood.

‘The Prayer’ features the voices of top Filipino music icons singing with the Loboc Children’s Choir. These artists are Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Kuh Ledesma, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, ZsaZsa Padilla and Lani Misalucha.

They are also joined by topnotch Filipino performers from various record labels who agreed to unite in this project – Noel Cabangon, Christian Bautista, Billy Crawford, Anne Curtis, Rachelle Ann Go, Erik Santos, Richard Poon, Yeng Constantino, Angeline Quinto, Karylle, Jay R, Nikki Gil, Kris Lawrence, Iya Villania, Nyoy Volante and Sabrina.

Production was supervised by maestro Ryan Cayabyab who heads the Philipop MusicFest Foundation.

“It’s a beautiful and inspiring version that we can all be proud of. This is probably the biggest gathering of today’s biggest music artists in a single song, and we are glad that these artists all responded to our call to help rebuild the lives of our countrymen by sharing their time and talent,” said Mellissa Limcaoco of Smart Music.

“Now we are encouraging everyone to please support the cause and help our fellow Filipinos rise again. By simply purchasing a copy of this song for only P10, not only are you helping spread the message of hope but you are directly contributing to the Help PH campaign of the PDRF,” she added.

Smart, Talk ‘N Text and Sun Cellular subscribers can purchase the song by visiting and registering their mobile phone numbers at spinnr.ph via web, mobile browser or the Spinnr mobile app for Android Smartphones. Payment will be deducted from the prepaid load or charged to the subscriber’s postpaid bill so a credit card is not needed to support this cause.

Charice ‘Chapter 10’ Album Cover and Track List revealed!

International singing sensation Charice is loud and proud to share with the world her newest album under Star Records titled “Chapter 10.”

Charice_CHAPTER-10-375x336

According to Charice, her ‘coming out’ also signaled the start of her musical liberation.

“When I was growing up I was ‘accompanied’ in my sleep up to my waking hour by Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Regine Velasquez and Lea Salonga,” she said. “Now, with the turn of events in my life, I listen more and more to Pink, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, among others.”

“My new CD marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life. It’s about being free, celebrating my own identity without inhibitions, and becoming strong despite my own limitations,” the world-class singer said. “It’s my take on becoming true to myself to be able to deliver a more honest and heartfelt music to the people who believe in me and my craft. Plus I owe it to God who also loves lesbians like me.”

“I believe that ‘Chapter 10′ is a proof that talent goes beyond gender orientation. People love me for my voice. So, with a humble heart, I wish to give them every reason to love me even more with this album,” said Charice about her 10-track album. “I gave my best to this. I even spent sleepless nights at the studio perfecting some songs. This is the first album I will release after coming out. So I really chose to treat the listeners to something that is really a work of art.”

When asked what is so special about the number 10, Charice shared, “Aside from the fact that the album contains 10 songs, ten is close to my heart as it is the birthday of my mom and myself, and my anniversary with Alyssa (Quijano).”

Featured in “Chapter 10″ are nine uniquely creative revivals of:

  • ‘Titanium’,
  • ‘How Could an Angel Break My Heart’,
  • ‘Anything For You’,
  • ‘Everything I Do, I Do It For You’,
  • ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough’,
  • ‘Do You Know Where You’re Going To?’,
  • ‘The One That Got Away’,
  • ‘Makita Kang Muli’ and
  • ‘Yakap;’ and

one original composition co-written by Charice titled

  • “Unexpected Love,”

which she dedicates to her girlfriend.

Charice’s “Chapter 10” album is now available at all records bars nationwide and worldwide for only P299. The tracks can also be downloaded via iTunes, Amazon.com and MyMusicStore.com.ph.

Fans of Charice can follow her at www.charicemusic.com and twitter.com/officialccrp.

Richard Yap “Easy Listening” Album Track List revealed!

“Be Careful With My Heart” lead actor Richard Yap, who is well known by TV viewers as ‘Ser Chief,’ is thrilled over the launch of his first-ever recording album under Star Records.
Richard+Yap+Album
It is a dream-come-true because I’ve always wanted to sing since I was a kid,” said the other half of the ‘Ser Chief-Maya’ (Jodi Sta. Maria) love team. “I am thankful to our teleserye because through our official soundtrack, people discovered that I can sing.
The actor shared that his self-titled debut album is just like their TV series–a feel-good, easy listening collection of tracks composed of nine revivals that were all chosen by ‘Ser Chief’ himself. The carrier single of the album is “Don’t Know What To Do, Don’t Know What To Say.”
It covers all genres, from pop to ballad to alternative, appealing not only to music fans in my age group but also to the teens and in-betweens,” said Richard, who stressed that his album is entirely different from “Be Careful With My Heart” album. “This is very special for me because I put a lot of hard work in it so that we could come up with something that’s really worth paying for. I’m hoping that all of my supporters will love it too.
Richard, who grew up listening to the music of Queen, Barry Manilow, Kenny Rogers, Hall and Oates, Phil Collins, and Mike Francis, feels no pressure getting compared with other talented singers in the country.
I don’t think there’s a need to compare because we have different musical choices and different target audiences,” he explained.
Featured in Richard’s solo debut album under Star Records are revivals of
  • “Promise Ain’t Enough,”
  • “Think I’m In Love Again,”
  • “Can Find No Reason,”
  • “You Take My Breath Away,”
  • “Chasing Cars,” “High,”
  • “Afterglow,”
  • Chinese version of “Oh Babe.”

The album also carries the bonus tracks

  • “Please Be Careful With My Heart”
  • “Salamat.”
Richard’s first album is now available at all record bars nationwide for only P250. Digital tracks can also be downloaded via Amazon.com, Mymusicstore.com.ph and iTunes.

Enrique Gil’s “King of the Gil” album cover and track list revealed!

Due to insistent public demand, Star Records has launched the highly anticipated first-ever album of primetime TV’s ‘Next Ultimate Leading Man’ and this generation’s ‘Dougie King’ Enrique Gil.

Enrique’s debut album under Star Records is titled ‘King of the GIL,’ which according to the singer-actor, was a result of his habit of tirelessly trying out something new. “After dancing and acting, a lot of people encouraged me to try singing. And then I was formally offered to do an album. I just said, ‘Sure, let’s try it,” narrated Enrique. “The moment I heard the songs that I recorded, I felt that it was a dream that unexpectedly came true.”

The “Muling Buksan Ang Puso” star further shared that he was hands-on in the production of his debut CD with the support of Fil Music’s hit hiphop album producer Thyro and hiphop artist Paw Chavez. “I wanted to create my own flavor and share my side of music that I haven’t heard yet from current recording artists. The album is more of house, hiphop, upbeat,” he said. “My album is actually just like me; it will get and keep you dancing. A listener will feel the urge to get up and dance when listening to any track.”

 

“My album can surely be enjoyed by all generations. My song ‘Ikaw Lamang’ is perfect for primetime TV viewers because it sounds like a teleserye theme song. ‘Katawan-Legs’ medley is for the laid back; ‘Miss Miss’ is for the hot chicks; while ‘So Fly’ and ‘Rockin’ Them Jeans’ is a treat to those who love hiphop music,” explained Enrique, whose musical influences are Chris Brown and Billy Crawford.

Meanwhile, when asked if he is ready to be compared once again with former “Princess And I” co-star and fellow Star Records artist Daniel Padilla, Enrique said ‘yes.’

“I’m used to it. I’ve been compared with DJ (Daniel’s nickname) as an actor since we started ‘Princess and I.’ But I think both of us are unique as recording artists. DJ’s genre is more of rock-alternative, while my album carries upbeat and dance tracks,” said Enrique, who dreams of collaborating with Bamboo, Yeng Constantino, and his friends from Flip Music like Ron Henley and Abra.

Under the production of Star Records, featured in ‘King of the GIL’ are seven tracks including his carrier single na ‘

  • Oha (Kaya mo ba  ‘to?),’
  • ‘Miss Miss,’ ‘Ikaw Lamang,’
  • ‘So Fly,’ ‘Katawan-Legs’ medley,
  • ‘Tayo’y Magsayawan-Rock Baby Rock’ medley,
  • ‘Rockin’ Them Jeans’ featuring Tippy Dos Santos.

Enrique’s ‘King of the GIL’ album is now available on record bars nationwide for only P199. The tracks can also be downloaded via iTunes, Amazon.com and MyMusicStore.com.ph.
