KZ was joined by some blogger friends and TV crew for another intimate interview on what's life after X Factor and after her new album was released last Feb 18, 2014 at Sir Boy's Food Republique in Panay Ave, QC!
KZ's soulful voice is really one of my favorites. She is one artist I am supporting since the very start until now. I am really proud of her and what she can further become in the near future. A few days before the blog con, I honestly tweeted that I missed watching her perform live, and then the blogcon invite came, how lucky can I get?
KZ shared that as she is now a part of the music industry,she learns more about music and appreciates music more than before. She also said how she loves rapping too, I've seen her perform a rap song with Abra before and KZ said that she wants to have a collaboration with OPM's finest rapper of this generation, sir Gloc-9! Watch KZ's performance of Ready Or Not here and see for yourself how amazing she was:
KZ also performed a couple of songs from her album, Puro Laro and Bakit Lumuluha:
She also sampled a cover of Lorde's Royals:

Miss Rachelle The Send Off Concert: Rachelle Ann Go left a remarkable concert before flying to London!

Rachelle Ann Go performed in a concert for her Filipino supporters for the last time, before flying to London. Rachelle will be gone for a period of time and will surely be missed here in the local music scene as she takes on a journey to the international musical / theater field through the remake of Miss Saigon. Rachelle Ann has been tapped to play the role of Gigi after her series of auditions. And as Pinoys bid her goodbye for now, Rachelle gave a remarkable show at Meralco Theater last Feb 22, 2014!
A jam-packed Meralco Theater has been filled with Rachelle's friends, family and supporters! She said that the show that night was both a look-back of her past ten years in the music industry and a look-forward for the up coming ten years of her career, starting with this big break from Miss Saigon.
Rachelle did a splendid job, despite her not feeling too well, she belted out her repertoire in sleek and smooth prod numbers done to wow the crowd. Rachelle gave a sneak peek of her humble beginnings, joining amateur singing competitions until winning Search For A Star. She sang her hit songs throughout her years in music and she also performed with her good friends in the industry like Jimmy Marquez, Sheryn Regis, Mark Bautista, Erik Santos, Christian Bautista and her idol, Asia's Songbird, Ms. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid!
(Rachelle Ann Go and Christian Bautista in a heartfelt duet of the song entitled Say Something)
She also gave a taste of what to expect from her as a part of Miss Saigon in a broadway musical production number! What a world-class show indeed! All my well wishes to Shin (Rachelle's nickname) as she takes on a higher level of her career. We are looking forward for your Miss Saigon success and we will surely wait for your comeback! We will miss you Miss Rachelle!
*Thank you so much to Cornerstone Talent Management Center for making this concert coverage possible!

Kapuso's Little Princess Jillian Ward celebrated her birthday with the kids of Virlanie Foundation!

Young Kapuso child star, Jillian Ward celebrated her 9th birthday at Fun Ranch Ortigas, sharing the moment with the street kids from Virlanie Foundation. Jillian together with GMA Artist Center had prepared a fun-filled afternoon for the kids with fun activities,and games they surely enjoyed. Jillian also invited her family and friends to join her in her birthday party!
Jillian is one of the most well-loved child stars we have nowadays. Pretty, smart and very talented... we all know she can act and she also dance occasionally and is good at it but for me, it was the first time I hear her sing, she sang "Let It Go" a theme song from the animated film, Frozen and she wowed all her guests for her birthday party! I foresee that this young girl can definitely have an album in the near future!
They enjoyed some party games with prizes, they also had a cupcake decorating contest from Sweet Kiss. The kids also enjoyed a sumptuous merienda with the help from generous sponsors: Waffle Time, Minute Burger, and Leon Phillipe! The pretty and yummy birthday cake from Fernando's Bakeshop gave the best birthday feel to the event. Barbie and Elle gave some lovely presents to the birthday girl too! Zagu brought a couple of mascots to add to the entertainment and Fun Ranch also gave a ride all you can experience with Jillian towards the entire afternoon.
Jillian Ward is extremely happy and thankful to everyone who made the event possible. The child actress said that we can expect a new show from her soon. Jillian is bubbly and brilliant at 9!
*Thank you to GMA Artist Center for making MsMightyMau a part of the event.

Favorites: My favorite Beyonce song is...

So this new blog series will showcase MsMightyMau's faves in anything and everything under the sun. Oh yes, to kick off this new blog series called "Favorites" I would like to pay tribute to the one almost each and every man and woman admires (yep, including me), the Queen B herself, Beyonce. Have you asked yourself, 'what is your favorite Beyonce song?' I know that the Queen had already released a lot of MASSIVE hit songs, and when I say massive, I mean WORLDWIDE MASSIVE. And I figured it will be really hard to pick just one favorite, and I thought that it'll be my problem when I started writing this, but I was surprised to get an easy answer... My favorite Beyonce song is...
Ego! It may not be her song on top of your list, but hey, I love this song. Catchy, real catchy.. Queen B got me on this one... and it's not because of her belting out the high notes, it's just her singing. The sizzle in the music video is not that special too, Beyonce has most of her music videos showcasing her ooh-la-la dancing skills as well. But you know what I love the most? It's the tenderness of her vocal runs when she did the 'sing it with piano' part. Awesome. Simply awesome.

My favorite Beyonce song is... EGO! How about you? What's your fave Beyonce song?

Love OPM - Gracenote

(L-R Jazz Jorge, Eunice Jorge, Ej Pichay and Chen Pangan - Gracenote)
Hey everyone! Here's another Love OPM feature... and now the spotlight is on an awesome, impressive and ear-catching band, Gracenote! The band members are Chen Pangan on lead guitars, Ej Pichay on drums, Jazz Jorge on bass, and Eunice Jorge on vocals, keyboards, violins and sometimes guitars too (multi-instrumentalist). I am a fan of this band, even before they have released their mainstream album First Movement in 2012 under Soupstar Entertainment distributed by Universal Records. I started to be a fan since I came across their Youtube videos of some covers and some live performances back in 2010. I even said personally to Eunice that I am a big fan at the recently held #RebuildPH event where she played along with Tutti (6cyclemind), Kean (Callalily) and Kleggy (Banda ni Kleggy), I actually waited for her to get out of the tent just to get a picture of us. And then I came to realize that it has been a long time since I watched band gigs and I miss it, so I promised myself to catch one of their gigs... and it happened.
Gracenote posted on Twitter that they have a gig at 70's Bistro Anonas last Feb 5, 2014 and so, I grabbed my chance. Added to seeing Gracenote live, a big bonus is to watch Pintura, Moonstar 88 and Ney perform their sets too. I am overjoyed to watch Gracenote perform live! They give this bursting vibe of energy with their set! It was above and beyond what I expected. I have already seen them perform before as a front act on a Callalily mall show and other than that I can only watch their live performances on videos online. And would like to sincerely thank Gracenote for a SOLID night of music. I took videos of their performances to share to the world how AMAZEBALLS they are!

•They opened with their single Stop Stop! just enough to explode the music to the crowd! I love this song as it can easily make you get up on your feet and go dancin'!
Stop Stop! -Gracenote:
•This next song is called Knock Knock which is their opening track on their album First Movement and this is a catchy tune one can easily sing along with.
Knock Knock - Gracenote:
•Finally, I get to see them perform this song live! It's one of my favorite song reinvention.. I remember Youtubing for Gracenote's live performances of When I Dream About You by Stevie B and I instantly fell in love with their version.. it's way better the original!
When I Dream About You (Stevie B cover) - Gracenote:
•Up next is my fave Gracenote song, a very heartfelt and powerful rock ballad entitled Far Away. The violin does the trick, it is painful but enchanting every time I hear it. An absolute tear-jerker!
Far Away - Gracenote:
•As playful as the song goes, Play It Again is lively and upbeat. Chen's guitar riffs spiced up the performance and funny how Eunice mumbled on some to the lyrics on second verse.. :p
Play It Again - Gracenote:
•Before performing the next song entitled Kung Pwede Lang, Eunice shared the story behind the song, and after knowing what happened it felt like the song seems heavier and a bit darker to me when I heard it this time.. weird. 
Kung Pwede Lang - Gracenote:
• Gracenote also sang a new song entitled 11-12-13. Eunice had been generous to share that she composed this song about her celebrity crush whom she saw last November 12, 2013. And just right in time for the love month they performed the song first time ever at 70's Bistro last Feb 5, but as Eunice requested, I will not upload the video as the band will still be doing finishing touches to the song to make it sound better, but let me tell you that the song 11-12-13 is one hit song to watch out for.. you may never know it may soon be dominating radio airplays and hit charts all over... hmm.. just saying!

• Lastly they also sang Minsan Lang Naman, and unfortunately my camera's card got full so I wasn't able to get a good video of this as well but hey, you can see a lot of videos of Gracenote on Youtube performing this song. So you're still a winner! Haha!
Well, let me grab this chance to greet the band, HAPPY 6th ANNIVERSARY GRACENOTE! Without any cheesy-ness in here, you guys are simply incredible, fascinating and wonderful! Congratulations to how far you have already reached Eunice, Jazz, Ej and Chen! Hoping for more and more years of Gracenote! I believe in your music. I believe that you guys can effortlessly fly to the peak of OPM greatness! I'm happy to watch you perform live and I will see you on stage again on UP Fair! :)
To those who will join UP Fair on Feb 12 too, see you! And to everyone reading this blog post for Love OPM, if you haven't yet... please do grab Gracenote's album First Movement still available on all leading record bars nationwide or download it legally through iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/ph/album/first-movement/id553400810
