Morissette’s 1st Big Dome concert an acid test of her drawing power

Over the past few years, Morissette Amon has managed to cultivate a formidable presence online, thanks to her viral song covers---particularly, those recorded live inside the bus-turned-recording booth of the FM radio station Wish 107.5. The young vocalist's version of Little Mix's power ballad "Secret Love Song" alone has amassed over 60 million views on YouTube. Her renditions of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds" and Sia's "Chandelier," meanwhile, have 34 and 21 million views, respectively. On top of that, Morissette is also a favorite among YouTube's community of "reactors," or vloggers who film themselves doing commentary while watching performance videos.

True Faith’s ‘magical’ collaboration with MGMT

  I am mighty proud of my all-time fave band, True Faith (TF). The American alternative rock band MGMT recently tapped TF for a collaboration. MGMT's 2007 debut album, "Oracular Spectacular," produced the hits, "Kids," "Electric Feel" and "Time to Pretend." According to Royce Roy (a common friend of mine and TF), last November, Fil-Am Mikey Pendon, aka DJ Jester, sent him a message asking if TF would be interested to cover a new song for their coming album. When Royce told TF vocalist Medwin Marfil about it, the latter couldn't believe that MGMT wanted the group since it is an alternative rock band, while TF performs mostly pop songs and ballads. Last month, direc...Keep on reading: True Faith’s ‘magical’ collaboration with MGMT.....»»

Taylor’s leak-proofing strategy

  With the pervasiveness of social media, it's not uncommon these days to see highly anticipated songs by major pop stars get leaked way before their intended release dates. In a behind-the-scenes feature on the music video of "End Game"---a track from Taylor Swift's "Reputation" album---the American singer-songwriter let on one of her measures to prevent such leaks from happening: She doesn't let her backup dancers hear the full version of the song. "I commend them fully because they've been pretending like there's music playing when there's really not," Taylor said, while footage of her dancers moving to a metronome's beat. "They have been dancing to a click track,...Keep on reading: Taylor’s leak-proofing strategy.....»»

Queen Bomber Alvarez seals swan song with MVP award

Shola Alvarez sealed her swan song with Jose Rizal University by bagging the Most Valuable Player award in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition. In her fifth year with the Lady Bombers, Alvarez led the team to a historic first-ever Final Four appearance. Though JRU short against a well-experienced and grizzled veteran-laden defending champion Arellano University in the semis, Alvarez’s effort brought the once cellar-dwelling squad into an unchartered territory. The Queen Bomber averaged 21.3 points per game during the elimination round and she also led the team in floor defense with her digs and reception. “Isa siya sa nasa top sa stats and very deserving siya roon sa MVP,” said JRU coach Mia Tioseco. “Sobrang proud kami sa kanya dahil dumating siya sa amin after five minutes ayaw na mag-jog kasi hinihingal na, hinihika. Now look where she is right now, as one of the top players sa NCAA. So we’re really proud of her.” Alvarez is set to receive her award on Friday before the women’s Finals between Arellano U and San Beda College at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Jovielyn Prado of the Lady Chiefs was named 1st Best Outside Spiker while Dolly Versoza of JRU pocketed the 2nd Best Outside Spiker award. Wrapping up the women’s awardees were Lourdes Clemente of University of Perpetual Help (1st Best Middle Blocker), Joyce Sta. Rita (2nd Best Middle Blocker), Alyssa Eroa (Best Libero) and Vira Guillema (Best Setter) of San Sebastian College and Regine Arocha (Best Opposite Hitter) of Arellano U. Lady Chiefs freshman Necole Ebuen was named Rookie of the Year. In men’s division, Jobert Almodiel of Perpetual scooped three awards including the Rookie of the Year and MVP recognitions. Almodiel, also the 1st Best Outside Hitter, led the Altas to an elimination round sweep to advance outright into the best-of-three Finals against the Chiefs. Christian Dela Paz of Arellano U took the 2nd Best Outside Spiker award while teammate Kevin Liberato got 1st Best Middle Blocker diadem. Perpetual Help’s Jack Kalingking (Best Libero) and Warren Catipay (Best Setter) and San Beda’s Limuel Patenio (2nd Best Middle Blocker) and Mark Enciso (Best Opposite Hitter) round up the list of awardees. Kirth Rosos of defending juniors champion Perpetual earned the MVP honor while teammate Noel Kampton bagged the 1st Best Open Spiker.

Review: Timberlake is a man lost in the woods on new album

Justin Timberlake, "Man of the Woods" (RCA Records) Dare I say it --- but Justin Timberlake, you have failed us. The superstar singer produced epic solo albums with 2002's "Justified," 2006's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" and 2013's "The 20/20 Experience." And though he tripped over his own disco ball on the second part of "20/20," released seven months after the original, he rebounded with "Can't Stop the Feeling!" --- a song that can still put you in a good mood. Unfortunately, though, Timberlake not only missteps on "Man of the Woods," he crashes and burns. He's a singer lost in the woods. While some of the 16 songs are enjoyable, some feel like leftover efforts from "FutureS...Keep on reading: Review: Timberlake is a man lost in the woods on new album.....»»

  It's been shown in a few theaters before, but "Changing Partners" is being screened in wider release this month, so it deserves viewers' supportive perusal. What makes it particularly viewable is its being one of the few new musical films produced this season, with its four leads, Agot Isidro, Jojit Lorenzo, Sandino Martin, and Anna Luna, expressing their feelings not just with words, but also in soulful song. It's also a gender-bending tale, megged by Dan Villegas, with the leads inhabiting multiple persons and getting involved in multiple cross-gender relationships. After viewing the film, it's expected that viewers will arrive at a new and more informed understandi...Keep on reading: Words & music.....»»
