If You Don't Know Who Arthur Nery Is... You Are Totally Missing Out | Love OPM


Where have I been? 
Why did I totally missed this one heck of a performer named Arthur Nery? 

As I said, if you don't know who Arthur Nery is... then, you're totally missing out! 

I found out about Arthur Nery literally just 2 weeks ago - on YouTube - and since then,  I spent nights devouring his music on Spotify, and I just can't stop. 

But today, it just hit me, that I needed to share his music to others too. Even if I'm pretty sure that I have a smaller audience reach than him.. haha! 

But his music is just sooo sooo sooo good to enjoy on my own - so I just had to blog about it. 😁

So, I honestly barely know the guy - but all I know is.. he's one heck of a talent. 
But here are some little things I know about him so far - 
(disclaimer: these are internet ready infos only haha)
  • Arthur Nery has released his album Letters Never Sent last 2019 
  • He's from Cagayan De Oro
  • He's a former call center agent (like me.. haha)
As a music fan, I would describe his music as a precious gem of jazzy and RnB fusion. His voice is this smooth & easy,  extra rich and creamy, velvety goodness. Not to mention intensely sexy too. 

Well just listen to his music and I'm pretty sure you'll be charmed:



My top 3 favorite Arthur Nery songs are:
1. Higa 
2. Life Puzzle
3. Cotton Candy

And mah guy Arthur also has a fresh new single which he released just last month entitled Take All The Love! I definitely have all the love for this song! 
💥💥💥 

So y'all know what I'm sayin' now right? 

And if that isn't enough here are some live performance videos to further drag you into the magical world of Arthur Nery:





Haaay, if only we're not in a pandemic - I would have always paid to see Arthur Nery perform live.. I badly miss live shows and concerts. 😭

Anyways, if you want to get to know more about Arthur Nery you can follow him on his socials:

As always, let's continue to love and support OPM!

Cheers!

Musician Heather Schmid Returns To Mozart For Its Healing Qualities During Turbulent Times

Press Release:

BOSTON, MA – Many have turned to music as a coping mechanism during this pandemic. Aside from Covid-19’s physical health threat, people’s mental health has suffered. The fear and uncertainty has affected all of us. Music is one universal way to handle daily stress; and Mozart's music is particularly effective in promoting healing. Realizing how much music has been healing, uplifting and revitalizing for herself, classically trained singer and musician, Heather Schmid returned to the recording studio to produce a Mozart album in hopes of providing solace for listeners.

"Mozart takes time and precision, so I soaked up the healing, relaxing music qualities to de-stress during these turbulent times. Like so many other musicians, every single show, gig, live performance, and touring opportunity was cancelled in March- dead stop, so practicing Mozart every day started as a healing balm for me. I want to share that feeling of relaxation and calm with listeners. These are difficult times and listening to Mozart is a great tool to calm the spirit and uplift the soul.” 

There are many studies that proves how Classical Music can reduce stress, help you relax, and fight depression. And specifically, Mozart’s music can also help to boost your memory; make you more productive, creative and happy. As a classically trained singer herself, Heather wanted to share all of these benefits and more to the world; with her newest album: “Heather Schmid Mozart Arias" which is now available for streaming and download on all digital music platforms. It’s a special four-track album compilation of some of the most famous and most beautiful Arias from Mozart featuring Batti, Batti, O Bel Masetto and Vedrai Carino from Don Giovanni, Deh, Vieni Non Tardar from Le Nozze di Figaro and Una Donna a Quindici Anni from Così Fan Tutte.

Exploring more about the benefits of Classical music, Heather also launched an amusing and informative project called “Mozart and the Brain” – a series of videos that tackles how the brain responds to Mozart’s music – correlating to the famous term “The Mozart Effect”.

Start of a New Era!

 



It has been YEARS since my last post. 

A lot has happened, some good, bad and great things, in my life and career. I have experienced a lot of things and looking back, I feel bad that I didn't shared any of it on this blog. 

Way back 2016-2017, I attempted to blog more (emphasis on attempted.. HAHA). I changed the blog  to www.riyaction.com - hoping that it will be re-branded as a "reaction" blog. But, LIFE HAPPENS. And I ended up prioritizing different things and taking different paths. So the attempt was indeed a BIG FAIL, and this blog has been sleeping for the longest time. 

But this 2021, I have decided to finally REVIVE it. -- FOR REAL.

I'm now ready to go back to one of my first love, BLOGGING. And to make it more special, I also went back to my original moniker: Ms. Mighty Mau. 

Ugh. Writing this post now, makes me feel all fired-up inside. I have missed this soooo much! 

But before we start a new era, let's catch-up a little bit, shall we?

Last 2017, I went to New Zealand for a vacation to be with my mom, dad, ♥ and the rest of the fam there.


Uhm, 2018 - 2020 -- I worked as an artist road manager for JONA, one of my closest friends in showbiz. Well, you may have seen her a lot on my blogs before.. and even after my last blog from 2016, I continued supporting her career especially when she moved to ABSCBN. But it was 2018 was when I officially started to work for her as a road manager. 

That was such a fun and exhilarating ride. And I do cherish the entire experience.☺

---

This 2021, I am starting anew. 

After having some deepest thoughts and realizations, I have gained a whole new level of self-worth. I vowed to  focus more on myself and my life this year. And with this, I want to take the chance to share as much as I can on this blog. This is a very personal space for me in the online world, where I pour out my heart and mind.

So, I want to thank YOU for reading this.

Cheers to msmightymau.com! To more blogposts and more readers! 

And... HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY too! ♥

In Photos: The Queen Of The Night Jona has been crowned and she definitely wowed the crowd!



There is no denying that Jona is one of my favorite singers. More so, she is a very very very dear friend of mine and of course, I wouldn't miss her last concert for the world... Queen Of The Night Jona was her very first concert as a Kapamilya that was held last November 25, 2016 at the Kia Theatre. The show was presented by Star Events, Big Eyes Production, Creative Media Entertainment and PLDT Home. Jona wowed the crowd together with her very talented guests: Daryl Ong, Jed Madela and Ms. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid! Queen Of The Night Jona was indeed a concert to treasure!

I know too well that Jona is a very talented singer and performer, well-deserving of the title as "QUEEN", as I have seen her on stage over and over again... But believe me, I still get goosies every single time! She has staged concerts before on smaller venues but I'm soooo proud that she staged a very successful show in a bigger venue. Well, Kia Theatre was jampacked... full of her supporters, old and new ones, who patiently waited to experience her talent once again.

I witnessed how she poured her heart and soul (well, the entire team behind the concert did!) just to make the show as perfect as possible. And there's no denying that every song performed was beyond thrilling! I bet everyone present in the theatre that night can attest to that!

So, on this blog post, I will share some of the photos I took using my camera, just to share a bit of the magnificent concert moments we all witnessed, felt and experienced that very night. I will not share videos tho, but instead, I encourage everyone to watch her upcoming shows / concerts LIVE, because her talent simply magnifies way above and beyond of what you can ever expect! (Well, if you insist... you can just go to YOUTUBE and search for her concert performances yourself as there are a lot of video uploads from her youtuber fans and supporters)

So, again, for those who missed her last concert, please do watch her next time... Maybe we can all go together for Smart Araneta Coliseum or MOA Arena? Yeah!

And for those who were able to watch the Queen Of The Night Jona concert, let's relive the grandiose coronation of our QUEEN JONA (period).....

Here are the photos taken by my Fujifilm X-M1 with no post-enhancements:































Just to give a plus... for those who are wondering, here's Jona's jaw-dropping repertoire:
One night only / Wings
And I Am Telling You/ I'm Every Woman /Respect
Help Me Get Over
I Will Survive (acapella)
Maghihintay Ako
I'll Never Love This Way Again
Thinking Out Loud / All Of Me / Lay Me Down - with Daryl Ong

Till I Met JC Santos...


(photo from abs-cbn)

I have been in hiatus for a long while now in attending showbiz events and meeting celebrities.. However, luck came to my favor as I got the chance to meet JC Santos.. A very promising actor who plays the well-loved character of Ali Nicolas in the Kapamilya TV series entiled Till I Met You.

He is definitely a talk-of-the-town, surely because of his outstanding performance of an unconventional role on TV. His talent is shining every night as he continues to impress the TIMYllenials, as they call the avid viewers of the show.

So, here's what happened...

I am chillin’ on a Saturday afternoon last November 5, when I saw a post on Facebook that Jona (yes... the BIRIT QUEEN Jona) will perform a mall show in TriNoma... (which happens to be my “go-to” mall since it’s along the way when I’m travelling from Bulacan to Mandaluyong...) Both Jona and her manager Mommy A are very dear friends to me (almost like family) and it’s been a while since I had a chance to hang out with them. So, I decided to ask if I can tag-along to watch her perform on stage again and to take photos of her too.

(Side Story: my phone is totally broken and I don’t have a decent phone to use, so I decided to buy an early Christmas gift for myself since I badly need a working phone and bought an ASUS Zenfone Max before going to the event venue at TriNoma – yes I know that it’s not the latest Asus flagship phone but hey, it is a phone that fits my budget and decent with its features... Of course, I will post a separate blog entry for my new phone... I just can’t help to share a little teaser for y’all...)

I went straight to the backstage area... and as I went inside the dressing room.. to my surprise I saw JC Santos with his gorgeous smile beaming at me.. All I was able to mutter was a shy “Hi”... Then I went to the inner room where Jona is... She’s still getting ready and glamming-up as it is still a little early for the start time of the show.

Jona and JC Santos staged a mini-Christmas Concert entitled Wrapped Up In Love for the crowd in TriNoma to spread the holiday cheers... Both JC and Jona was able to make everyone feel that Christmas is just around the corner! All the more reason to visit TriNoma mall for fulfill our needs for Christmas shopping for this season of giving.

Here is a photo gallery of both Jona and JC Santos in Wrapped Up In Love show:


















Jona is hands-down one of the country’s best singer and I am still in awe every time I watch her perform live... I get shivers down my spine as she belts out her high notes! And this show is no different... She nailed it! (As always!!!)

Surprisingly, JC was never left behind on the show; the guy sure knows how to sing too! I don’t know about him much, but as per checking a little about him online, he is a theatre actor before he went mainstream... With his good looks, massive appeal/charisma and his overflowing talents...it seems like I only have good words for JC! And on top of that, he is very humble and approachable... Not everyone in the showbiz industry is genuine like that (if you know what I mean...).

Well, it's not that we got to know each other well on a very short encounter, but I am very happy to have met him in person (that's why I am blogging about it) and I am looking forward to any chance that I may see him, maybe in a blogcon/event in the future.

Keep it up JC... I think you can go far beyond what can be imaginable for you as of now! :)

Of course, I took the chance to get a selfie with Ali... It's definitely a WIN!



P.S.
I would like to remind everyone to continuously watch Till I Met You weeknights on ABS-CBN after Magpahanggang Wakas, to catch JC Santos!

And of course, I would also like to take this chance to invite everyone once again to watch Jona’s concert entitled Queen Of The Night Jona this November 25 at the Kia Theatre!
