John Legend a win away from joining winners’ club

  With two Emmy nominations for his work in the live television version of "Jesus Christ Superstar," John Legend is one win away from joining the prestigious EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) club, which includes such icons as Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno and Whoopi Goldberg. "If it happens, it would be a truly rare group of people to join," the singer-songwriter told the Vulture in a recent interview. A 10-time Grammy winner, John picked up a Tony for coproducing the revival of the musical "Jitney" and won an Oscar for composing the song "Glory" for the film, "Selma." "To do it with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice would be especially cool, given that this was thei...Keep on reading: John Legend a win away from joining winners’ club.....»»

Joanna Ampil, MMFF Best Actress, on playing Candida: ‘I felt this role was beyond me’

"I felt this role was beyond me. I always cave in when I'm discouraged, and I cannot express myself when I'm discouraged." No easy part As early as 2008, producer Girlie Rodis tol...Keep on reading: Joanna Ampil, MMFF Best Actress, on playing Candida: ‘I felt this role was beyond me’.....»»

Be like late Salvadoran Archbishop Romero, PH church told

LUCENA CITY---On the canonization day of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero on Sunday, activist priest Fr.

To remember, celebrate and believe God is a life choice

There is a choice we all need to make at a certain point in our journey. Some make their choice earlier than others. And while some come face to face with it, they end up not making any choice. In my case, it was set by my then spiritual director, Fr. Benny Calpotura, SJ: "Now you need to make a choice to enter the core of your relationship with Christ, or stay in the periphery." We see this same choice in today's Gospel, the final installment in our month-long reflection on the Mass using Evangelist John's Discourse on the Bread of Life. "As a result, many of his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. Jesus then said to the Twelve, 'Do you...Keep on reading: To remember, celebrate and believe God is a life choice.....»»
