Star Records Artists Continue to Sing on a Higher Note in 2012
Star Records, ABS-CBN’s recording outfit, is set to release six new albums early this year from its top-selling recording artists namely Angeline Quinto, Jovit Baldivino, Juris, Aiza Seguerra, Jericho Rosales, and Piolo Pascual.
Fresh from her successful US concert tour, ‘Queen of Teleserye Themesongs’ Angeline Quinto remains relentless this year as she is all set to release her much-awaited sophomore album entitled “Fall in Love Again.” From being the first ‘Star Power’ Female Pop Superstar grand champion, Angeline has managed to steadily climb up the music royalty with her powerful interpretations of today’s most-requested hits including “Patuloy Ang Pangarap,” “Kunin Mo Na Ang Lahat Sa Akin,” “Saan Darating Ang Umaga,” “Hulog ng Langit,” and “If You Asked Me To.” Aside from receiving a platinum certification for her first album “Patuloy Ang Pangarap,” Angeline has already earned several recognitions from various award-giving bodies under her belt—24th Aliw Awards’ ‘Best New Artist,’ 33rd Catholic Mass Media Awards’ ‘Best Secular Song’ for the song “Patuloy Ang Pangarap;” and 3rd PMPC Star Awards for Music’s ‘New Female Recording Artist of the Year’ and ‘Song of the Year’ for “Patuloy Ang Pangarap.” She is currently one of the mainstays of “ASAP 2012” with a regular segment title “Angeline on Q.”
Like Angeline, Jovit Baldivino is set to launch a new album this year. He, together with Star Records, is now in the process of song selection for his third music compilation. Recently, Jovit was presented with a triple platinum award for his debut album “Faithfully” and platinum award for his second record titled “I Did It For Love.” The first grand winner of ABS-CBN’s nationwide reality talent search “Pilipinas Got Talent” was named ‘Best New Artist’ by Aliw Awards in 2010. Some of Jovit’s hit songs include “Faithfully,” “Too Much Love Will Kill You,” “Ika’y Mahal Pa Rin,” and “Mula Sa Puso.” He is currently a mainstay at “ASAP 2012” as part of ASAP Pinoy Champs.
Meanwhile, ‘Acoustic Pop Sessionista’ Juris carries on enchanting her beloved listeners not only in the Philippines but also in other South East Asian countries as she is set to be positioned to be the “Soothing Voice of Asia” with the launch of her third album this year. Her latest album produced by Singaporean company S2S will be an all-English repertoire that would cater to the wider South East Asian market. Juris’ solo singing career started with Star Records. Her first album “Juris: Now Playing” has achieved the platinum status while her second album “Forevermore” already reached gold. Her hits include soothing renditions of well-loved Filipino ballads like “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin,” “Don’t Say Goodbye,” and “Forevermore.” Juris performs every Sunday in “ASAP 2012” as part of the ‘ASAP Sessionista.’
Singer-songwriter and Juris’ fellow ASAP sessionista, Aiza Seguerra is bound for a grand celebration this 2012 as the launch of her latest album coincides with her 25th anniversary in showbusiness. Aiza’s newest record will feature her new songs and compelling collaborations with various OPM music icons. Aiza’s top-selling albums include ‘Para lang Sa Yo,’ ‘Open Arms,’ ‘Aiza Seguerra Live,’ ‘Perhaps Love,’ and ‘Songs From The Vault.’
Not to be left behind among Star Records’ top-selling artists are two of ABS-CBN’s most brilliant singer-actors Piolo Pascual and Jericho Rosales who aside from launching the most-awaited primetime drama series titled “Dahil sa Pag-ibig” are off to release their latest records this year.
After his successful platinum album “Change,” Jericho is excited for his new ‘baby’ with Star Records. His second album will once again feature his ‘alternative OPM’ kind of music that features all-original tracklist with two remakes. It will be notable collaboration with top notch producers from the industry. Jericho bagged the ‘Song of The Year Award’ in Star Awards for Music 2010.
On the other hand, Philippine showbiz’ ‘Ultimate Heartthrob’ continues to take his fans on a different high with the running success of his “Decades 1” and “Decades 2” albums of classic foreign songs. “Decades 1” has attained gold record status while the second has achieved six time platinum status. Completing the successful music trilogy will be Piolo’s highly anticipated OPM edition of the “Decades” project.
