MR. FU’S ALL HITS COLLECTION: WOW, I LAHVEET!

Mr. FU, the star DJ of 103.5 WOW FM releases his new “WOW I LAHVEET!” album under Sony Music Philippines.
“This is definitely a bigger and better collection,” Mr. Fu admits, “and my original song entitled “Wow Megano’n?!” sounds really current and hi-tech.”

This new collection boasts of a rare assembly of stars and hits like Lea Salonga’s “If You’re Not Here By My Side,” Sharon Cuneta & Ogie Alcasid’s new version of “Nandito Ako,” the rare recordings of Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo’s “I’ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song” and KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez’s “When I Met You” with Joey de Leon’s “Itaktak Mo” and Francis M‘s “Kaleidoscope World.” It also carries Mr. Fu’s favorites “The Last Time I Felt Like This” by Ariel Rivera and Joanna Ampil, Agot Isidro’s “How Can I Be Sure,” and of course, Aljur Abrenica’s “Beauty and Madness.” Also part of this special collection are Sony’s new band hits “Gusto Ko Lang Ng Girlfriend” by Eevee and “Baliw” by Kiss Jane.

“Sulit talaga…all hits para sa mga WOWits!” exclaimed Mr. Fu, “I thank God for all these blessings that came my way this 2010.  Undeniably, aside from this album, Mr. Fu has been blessed with very good television exposure this year —which includes hosting stints in “Wow, Megano’n?! with Joey de Leon,” “Party On 5” and very recently, he was launched as a segment host of the trailblaizing showbiz talkshow “Paparazzi” on TV5 and is very bankable in events and corporate hostings.

“This album is a good memento of a good year: full of struggles yet full of happiness and triumphs. I dedicate this to my dad who is guiding me now from above,” punctuated Mr. Fu — to which we say, “Megano’n?!” Well deserved successes, Mr. Fu!
