MANILA, Philippines â?? Philippine singing sensation Charice on Sunday defended herself from criticisms that surfaced following her recent appearance in a popular gay bar in the United States to promote her current international single "Pyramid."
Charice, 17, told â??The Buzzâ? in a live interview that she was surprised that some people made a big deal out of her appearance at Club 57. She said it was not the first time that she went to clubs in order to promote the remix version of Pyramid.
â??Hindi lang ako â??yong nagpro-promote sa mga club. Ganoon talaga sila sa USâ??. umaalis na po ako [after ng performance ko]. Nagpe-perform lang po talaga ako," she said.
Amid the issue, Charice was happy that Pyramid placed 4th on the US Billboard pop/dance club chart.
MANILA, Philippines - The 2004 release of the critically-acclaimed album, Everybody Loves A Happy Ending, heralded the return to the international music scene of Tears for Fears, the iconic pop group acclaimed as one of the biggest and best-loved bands of the post-MTV era in the â??80s.
With outstanding songs led by the hit single, Closest Thing To Heaven, the reunited tandem of Roland
Orzabal and Curt Smith instantly made waves with millions as they embarked on a successful world tour in support of the album, performing before sold-out audiences of ecstatic fans from every generation.
With renewed popular interest in its authentic music and style, Tears for Fears eventually returned to the top of the music world and today stands on solid ground as one of pop musicâ??s most successful and productive acts.
Tears for Fears will blow you away with its collection of great hits when it comes to Manila for the much-awaited concert on May 2 at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.
Dubbed as Tears For Fears Live In Manila!, the musical presentation from Ovation Productions is the Manila leg of the four-city Southeast Asian tour by the celebrated duo that also includes Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
It follows its seven-date tour of Australia and New Zealand this month. To be featured in the show are the local groups Pupil and Sandwich.
MANILA, Philippines - KC Concepcion has been regarded from the start of her career to be the kind of artist who knows what she wants and how to get it.
From her inimitable fashion sense and her much-talked about production numbers on TV and concerts, to the eclectic roles she chooses in the movies and the select endorsements and advocacies she takes on, KC is heading into one clear direction: The top.
No wonder her independent-mindedness has redounded to her music. In her sophomore disc titled KC under Sony Music, KC wrote three of the 12 tracks namely Magandang Umaga, Takip Silim and Worth That Wait which talk about the different phases of a love story.
KC produced with Jinno Mina the Hulog, Naantig Ako Sa â??Yo, Girl Most Likely To and Tayo Na. The assumption of the responsibility belies her growing confidence not only on commanding center stage but also behind the scenes as she herself maps out a trajectory all her own.
KC is taking over the wheels slowly but surely; steering it to a path where even some of those who claim to be brave, dare not go. KC, after all, is an all-original album â?? something even more established artists have shunned doing in these days.
