LEA SALONGA…YOUR SONGS CD/DVD OUT NOW

After over 3 decades of wonderful music and a fulfilling career, our country’s pride Lea Salonga wanted to express her thanks and give something back to her fans, thus LEA SALONGA…YOUR SONGS was conceived.

This special concert was held December 2009 at the Philippine International Convention Center and was dedicated to the wonderful people who have supported her throughout her career.

With the concert’s success and due to insistent public demand, Sony Music, Ambient Media, Bounty Fresh-Asia’s Best and The Peninsula Manila brings the music and the magic right through your own music and DVD players with the release of the audio/video recordings of LEA SALONGA…YOUR SONGS.

Under the musical direction of Gerard Salonga and the most in-demand orchestra in the Philippines, FILharmoniKA, Lea performed a repertoire chosen exclusively by her fans.

Tracks include modern hits such as Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”, Beyonce’s “Halo” and  Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab”; power ballads like “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All” and “Open Arms”, OPM love songs such as “Kahit Isang Saglit” and “Sana Maulit Muli”; musical theatre numbers from Les Miserables and Wicked and many more.

“It is probably the most diverse repertoire I’ve ever sung through, and because of that, it was also the most fun,” Lea said.

She was joined by comedy concert queen Ms. Ai Ai De Las Alas, Pinoy rock icon Jett Pangan, premier balladeer Richard Poon and the award-winning dance group the Philippine All Stars.

This CD/DVD will make one reminisce or witness Lea’s musicality and versatility as a world-class performer if one missed the concert.

“Your Songs” is now out at leading record stores nationwide under Sony Music and is presented in cooperation with Bounty Fresh-Asia’s Best Chicken and The Peninsula Manila.

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!
