From the ‘High School Musical’ song…

I am going my own way… I hope i get to where I wanna be…

Another talented Filipino! Amazing voice.  With that kind of performance, there’s a good chance he’ll bag the  grand prize of Pilipinas Got Talent.  But the Philippines does not have scarcity of talents so he still has some challenges he’s got to overcome.  But for now, he is a clear frontrunner!

Effortless performance.  Such a wide vocal range!  I am extremely excited to watch what he’ll do in his next performances.  I hope he still has some tricks in his bag.  Go Pinoy talent!

It finally happened.  The duet of Maria and Lady Gaga, finally did happen.  So proud of this young Filipina!  So talented and blessed.  They sang Lady Gaga’s new single – Born this way, which Maria did a version of.  Check it out – Maria Aragon and Lady Gaga!

refreshingly fresh

She’s all over EDSA.  She’s been the cover of almost every magazine in the Philippines.  She’s on almost every commercial segment of every show.  She’s Anne Curtis Smith or simply Anne Curtis – a beautiful, sexy, talented young actress and a frustrated singer.  But she proves everyone wrong with this refreshingly fresh commercial of  a brand of soap.

I find both the song and Anne’s voice equally soothing and fresh.  It’s one of my recent LSS’s – last song syndrome (a song you last heard that just won’t stop playing in your head).  But this is a good LSS.  And it comes with a refreshing image of Anne too.  Music to the soul indeed.

I don’t know how to describe this new video of Lady Gaga.  I admire that she pushes everything to its limit but this has got to be the edgiest of all videos ever, at least among those that I am aware of.  Everyone’s gonna be talking about the suggestiveness of the video and I’m not sure if they would show it as is on TV.

What a great way to promote the beauty of the Philippines!  There are 7,107 reasons to love the Philippines and some of them are featured in this promo by the World Wildlife Fund starring  Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez, the National Ambassadors.

Let’s keep the world awesome!  Let’s keep the Philippines awesome!  I love the Philippines.  Boom De Yada

This is just such an inspiring song.  This is for any one, every one who ever doubted him/her-self.  We are all born superstars!  We are perfect the way we are!  Love yourself and you’re set!  That’s all we need.  Love for ourselves.  Everything else will take care of itself.  Spread the love.

[Verse 1]
My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars

She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir

“there’s nothin wrong with lovin who you are”
She said, “’cause he made you perfect, babe”

“so hold your head up and you’ll go far,
Listen to me when I say”

[Chorus]
I’m beautiful in my way
’cause god makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

[Post-chorus]
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was-
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

[Verse 2]
Give yourself prudence
And love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice your truth

In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth

A different lover is not a sin
Believe capital h-i-m
I love my life I love this record and
Mi amore vole fe yah

[Bridge]
Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Whether you’re broke or evergreen
You’re black, white, beige, chola descent
You’re lebanese, you’re orient
Whether life’s disabilities
Left you outcast, bullied, or teased
Rejoice and love yourself today
’cause baby you were born this way

[Chorus]
Coz you’re beautiful in your way
’cause god makes no mistakes
You’re on the right track baby
You were born this way

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

[Post-chorus]
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was-
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars

Thank you Lady Gaga for the beautiful words and music.  Thank you Maria Aragon for your wonderful voice.
