Bryan Termulo

'Hanggang Ngayon' Online Media Launch

Bryan Termulo's rendition of 'Dadalhin' originally sung by Asia's Songbird; Regine Velasquez literally brought himself, his voice and music to the hearts of many.  

I remember hearing it the first time it was played during the Special Red Carpet Premiere of ABSCBN's Teleserye; 'Walang Hanggan'. Everyone inside the cinema was giddy and cheering for Coco Martin and Julia Montes scenes with that song playing as background.

Prior to Bryan's 1st Online Media launch; I've met him few times already. The first was when he front-acted for Nina's concert in Metro Bar on October 17, 2010; followed by the visits I made in his previous teleserye 'Budoy' and in ASAP Studio and ABS-CBN's hallway.

Talent and Looks are not the only factors that will bring a singer to the airwaves.. They need passion, dreams, hardwork and most especially the right attitude. Bryan proved that to me.. One time I visited the set of 'Budoy'; He didnt know me yet then; but when he saw me; he showed me the most genuine and most welcoming smile ever. That was when I started liking him..

I don't wanna sound like a fan promoting a singer.
I'll stick with my principle of telling everyone how great people and things are
if I have faith on them.. 
and Bryan definitely got me.. 
I have faith in his music and in his wonderful being..

Bryan recently released his sophomore album 'Hanggang Ngayon' under BWB Records and Music Production Inc. distributed by Star Records. It has 8 tracks; All-Tagalog; 6 Originals and 2 Covers;

1. Lagay Ng Puso
2. Nasan Ka Na
3. Kung Maibabalik
4. Nagtatanong
5. Aanhin Pa
6. Hanggang Ngayon
   Bonus Tracks:
7. Dadalhin
8. Pagdating Ng Panahon

The songs in the album are all about Pain, Love, Heartaches, Moving On and Longingness.
Here is a Personal Invite from Bryan to all of you..

During the presscon, last July 12, Bryan said he wanna concentrate on Pop Music and more on OPM. He showed everyone his humility, kindness, charm and talent to the bloggers and online press. He performed songs from his album and was very excited signing every cd and smiling for the camera. My personal favorite is 'Lagay ng Puso' emotionally delivered and wonderfully sang.

By the way, Bryan was nominated as 'Best New Artist' by the 2012 Tambayan OPM Awards and 'New Male Recording Artist of the Year' by the PMPC Star Awards for Music adding to the silver and bronze medals he won at the World Championship of Performing Arts (WCOPA).

RIP Dolphy (King of Comedy)
In the next few days, July 25; Dolphy would have turned 84. 
Rodolfo Vera Quizon in real life brought laughter and tears 
to millions of Filipinos for the last 66 years of his showbiz life.
When the news broke of his passing;
Filipinos all over the world offered him prayers & love; as well as 
sympathy and condolences to Zsa Zsa, Dolphy's children and the rest of the family.
I was one of the 35,000 people who lined up to visit the comedy king
during the last day of the public viewing at The Heritage Park in Taguig City. 
Tito Dolphy (who was laid to rest last Sunday afternoon July 15, 2012) 
died of Cardiac Arrest from Multiple Organ Failure 
resulted from complications of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder.
In a way, I know how it feels for the family to have lost someone 
they truly love since I just lost my Dad too few months ago.. :(
I grew up watching Home Along Da Riles 
and never imagined that I could ever meet him in person. 
I was just lucky then to have witnessed and experienced his humility and kindness. 
I remember approaching him outside E-Live studio
after he guested on December 19, 2009.
Here are some photos of him I took.
May you have eternal peace and happiness Tito Dolphy with our Lord Jesus Christ.
By the way, Ayala Malls will be holding special screenings of Dolphy's Films from July 27-29 for the benefit of 'Dolphy Aid' .
