Colton Dixon "Never Gone" Music Video and Lyrics

American Idol finalist Colton Dixon has released the official music video of his song “Never Gone” from his debut album A Messenger.

Watch below:

Lights off, a shot in the dark
We get lost when we’re playing a part
We lay blame like we know what’s best
It’s a shame…

We break when we fall too hard
Lose faith when we’re torn apart
Don’t say you’re too far gone
It’s a shame
It’s a shame

I’m still standing here
No I didn’t disappear
Now the lights are on
See I was never gone
I let go of your hand
To help you understand
With you all along
Oh, I was never gone

There’s space between our lives
Hard to face, but I know we try
To revive, bring it back to life
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away

I’m still standing here
No I didn’t disappear
Now the lights are on
See I was never gone
I let go of your hand
To help you understand
With you all along
Oh, I was never gone

I never ever left you
Never ever left you, no.
He said I never ever left you
Never ever left you, no.
Jesus never ever left you
Never ever left you, no.
He sees us, even in the darkness
Now you know you’re not alone.

I’m still standing here
No I didn’t disappear
Now the lights are on
See I was never gone
I let go of your hand
To help you understand
With you all along
Oh, I was never gone

I’m still standing here
No I didn’t disappear
Now the lights are on
See I was never gone
I let go of your hand
To help you understand
With you all along
Oh, I was never gone

Dingdong Dantes Leads Philippines' 1st Apocalyptic Series "Genesis"

Dingdong Dantes Leads Philippines' 1st Apocalyptic Series "Genesis"

Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes is going to star in an upcoming primetime series which is scheduled to replace the controversial “My Husband’s Lover” come October.

The series entitled “Genesis” is mainly drama with a bit of science fiction (sci-fi). In the story, a large asteroid is approaching Earth, endangering the lives of all of its inhabitants. But even before that happens, Earth is already on the brink of an apocalypse due to natural calamities (e.g. tsunamis, typhoons, etc.). Chaos is everywhere and death tolls are rising. How people go about their business during these trying times is the pivot of the series.

In “Genesis,” Dingdong portrays a member of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) whose main mission is to protect the supreme leader of the land at all costs. In his performance of his duty, he comes across danger brought about by crime and calamities. In the end, he will have to choose between saving the lives of others or his own. 

Kasi dito sa Genesis napag-uusapan din yung mga corruption issues, it’s a struggle kung paano lumaban ng patas at tama sa kabila ng kaguluhan. Kaya narerelate din sa totoong buhay ang show na ito,” Dingdong said in an interview with

Basically, drama talaga siya. Ito ay tungkol sa pagkakaroon ng pag-asa sa kabila ng mga delubyo, mga problemang hinaharap ng isang tao,” the actor added.

“Genesis” is a reunion project of Dingdong and Rhian Ramos, who was the actor’s leading lady in the Philippine adaptation of the Korean series, “Stairway to Heaven.” It is also the second time for Dingdong and veteran actress Lorna Tolentino to work together in a series. The first one was in “Pahiram ng Sandali,” wherein they were paired in a May-December love affair.

“Genesis” is set to air its pilot episode on October 14 on GMA Telebabad.

Mario Maurer Graces Cinema One this Sunday Night

 Mario Maurer Graces Cinema One this Sunday Night

Model-actor Mario Maurer, who had already won the hearts of many worldwide, finally finds a love worth keeping as he gets on a flight to the Philippines to take a break away from his acting career as a Thai tourist named Marcus in the hit romantic film “Suddenly It’s Magic”, which is set to air on Cinema One this Sunday (September 15).

During his trip to the Philippines, he meets Joey (Erich Gonzales), who has inherited a bakeshop and her mother’s recipes. The two eventually find a different kind of comfort in each other - though it is continually put to the test as their own worlds collide. In what seemed to be an almost star-crossed relationship, the question lies in whether or not the two can survive the conflicts of reality and still remain side by side.

Don’t miss out on “Suddenly It’s Magic” airing at 8:00 p.m. on the Blockbuster Sundays movie block of Cinema One, the Philippines’ number one cable channel, available on SkyCable channel 56. 

Cinema One is also proud to announce that beginning September 15, it will also be made available on Destiny Cable channel 37 on analog and channel 56 on digital.

Megan Young to Dance "Singkil" in Miss World 2013 Dances of The World

Megan Young to Dance "Singkil" in Miss World 2013 Dances of The World

Not just she was selected as one of the 11 finalists in the Beach Fashion competition of Miss World 2013 out of  the 125 competing beauties, Megan Young was also chosen to perform the Filipino-Muslim dance "Singkil" during the Dances of The World event of Miss World in Indonesia.

Megan shared the news on Friday in a post on the official Facebook page of Miss World Philippines, which she has used to chronicle her participation in the preliminary activities of the international pageant.

"We rehearsed for Dances of the World. I'm proud to say that I was chosen to showcase my dance from the Philippines! I'll be showcasing a dance called Singkil. I am very, very happy because I get to share this Filipino-Muslim dance to the WORLD," the Kapamilya beauty queen said.

For her Singkil performance, Megan was trained by choreographer Carlos Buendia, Jr.

Originating from Lanao del Sur, the Singkil is a popular Maranao dance whose name is derived from the bells worn on the ankles of a Muslim princess. The performance is said to recount the epic legend of "Darangan."

It is characterized by a female dancer, traditionally of royal blood, carrying fans, while accompanied by a female "servant" with an umbrella. The dance is also known for the rhythmic clapping of bamboo poles, which the "princess" navigates as if to escape a natural catastrophe.

Patrick Wilson Possessed in “Insidious: Chapter 2”

Patrick Wilson Possessed in “Insidious: Chapter 2”

Patrick Wilson marks his third back-to-back collaboration with acclaimed horror director James Wan with Sony Pictures' scary thriller “Insidious: Chapter 2” which continues the story of the Lambert family’s life-and-death struggle with malignant spirits bent on destroying their lives.

In addition to the 2011 original “Insidious,” Wilson also starred in Wan’s recent global hit “The Conjuring.”
The first “Insidious” centered on the troubles of the Lamberts, a suburban family who leave their haunted house for a new home, only to learn it’s not their house that is haunted - it’s their eldest son. “Insidious: Chapter 2” rejoins the family as they try to put their recent troubles behind them, but discover that the spirits that have tormented them are far from finished.

Wilson reprises the character of Josh Lambert who is hardly the same person he was in the first film. “He’s literally vacant because he’s possessed,” explains the actor. “We know that he’s possessed, but will his wife, Renai find out? It’s structured like a murder mystery with this husband and wife not getting along and her trying to figure out why that is. She wants to believe her husband, but he’s acting bizarrely.”

In fact, Wilson’s character is so different that it’s essentially a new role for the actor, says co-screenwriter Leigh Whannell. “Patrick had such a good role and a good time because he’s actually not playing Josh Lambert from the first film, and he really took to that. He ate it up. He couldn’t get enough of it and he really contributed so much to making the film work with his character.

Indeed, Wilson says he relished playing the Lambert father under the control of a sinister spirit. “For me, those moments when I’m ‘possessed Josh’ and mowing through doors and walls are the most fun,” he recalls. “It’s a great release.”

Wilson says he was never a big fan of horror films that reveled in gore, but has always responded to those that focus on more human elements. “It was those films that didn’t rely on a lot of tricks that terrified me as a kid,” he remembers. “They were human stories. And that’s what interested me with this film. It feels like an adult drama played out as a horror movie, and it also has humorous elements. For me, whether it’s a horror movie, an action movie, a comedy, whatever, you have to care about the people. And specifically in a horror movie you have to be rooting for people, especially when they’re a family in peril.

The actor praises director James Wan for his ability to move beyond genre tropes and create a character-driven horror film.

He can construct these scares and knows this genre better than anyone,” Wilson says. “He’s just one of the most creative filmmakers we have. I wouldn’t work with him so much if I didn’t feel that, and I’m lucky that he wants to work with me. Most of all, he understands that in order for people to get invested in these characters you have to let them breathe; you have to hear their story.”


Opening across the Philippines on September 18, “Insidious: Chapter 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Visit to see the latest trailers, get free downloads and play free movie games.

7 Things You Know You Love About Dingdong Dantes

7 Things You Know You Love About Dingdong Dantes

Come on! Admit it or not, you know you love Dingdong Dantes to death. And I thought here are the reasons why.

He has an “international” appeal.

With his washboard abs and his dashing looks, women not only in the Philippines but also all over the world find him very sexy. In fact, in 2008, the actor landed in E! Magazine’s 25 Sexiest Men in the World and he’s the only Filipino in that list, which by the way also includes David Beckham. Dingdong ranked 3rd. 

He exudes a positive vibe.

Ask the people close to Dingdong and those who have worked with him in the past and they will utter only kind words about the matinee idol.  “Dingdong is such a kind-hearted person on and off-camera. He treats everyone on the set equally. He doesn’t discriminate. He is also very approachable and accommodating,” says a staff member of one of Dingdong’s previous TV series. “The actor is always there to inspire everyone around him despite any situation,” the staff member added.  In a TV interview, Dingdong’s girlfriend, actress Marian Rivera, shared how much she has changed for the better because of Dingdong. “Tinuruan niya ako maging patient, bawal ang maging negative,” she said.

He’s a “buffet” – so much more than what one could possibly consume.

More than just a great actor, Dingdong is a versatile artist: he is also a fine TV host and a very graceful dancer. In fact, his being a dancer paved the way for stardom.  Did we mention that he is also a movie producer? He co-produced the movie “Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles,” where he portrayed the lead character alongside multi-awarded actress Lovi Poe. Sure, he can do it all.  After all, he’s THE Dingdong Dantes.

Dingdong Dantes has won various awards such as the Outstanding Original Reality/Competition Program Host during the 2012 Golden Screen Awards for Television in 2013, Outstanding Original Reality Program Host for Protégé at the 2013 Golden Screen TV, and Best Actor Award for “Segunda Mano” in 2012.

He is a man for others.

In a recent interview, Dingdong admitted that he is a little bit “kuripot” when it comes to his own needs but magnanimous when it comes to the needs of his fellow. “Talagang todohan, todohan talaga,” said Dingdong of his philanthropic efforts. The actor is the founding chair of “Yes Pinoy Foundation” and the spearhead of “Project Aklat.” Dingdong’s priority is to address the need for education of thousands of under privileged children via scholarship grants. Despite his hectic schedule, he finds time to personally attend activities of his foundation.

He’s not fastidious when it comes to food.

Dingdong may be attractively sweet but he actually loves sour food. He indulges his self in anything that could transform his face from angelic into a “mukhasim (mukha + asim).” And his favorites: kamias and green mangoes with rock salt! These keep him energized during tapings.

He has a sixth sense: A sense of humor.

Dingdong Dantes is a serious actor and when on the set, his piercing stare usually hides his funny side.  Once in a while, however, Dingdong’s talent of tickling women’s funny bones becomes too strong to conceal. Once when he was asked how long he and Marian have been dating, he answered, “Months? Ang binibilang ko kasi seconds eh. Kaso, kukulangin tayo sa papel pag sinulat natin yun!” Boom!

He ages like wine.

Like wine, Dingdong Dantes only gets better as he ages. Dingdong remains one of the most sought out actors in the showbiz industry. With his numerous accolades in the industry, we can only wait for what other great things he will accomplish in the years to come.

Dingdong Dantes is starring in the upcoming primetime series on GMA, “Genesis.”  Watch out for this sci-fi/drama series coming this October, replacing "My Husband's Lover" on GMA Telebabad.

John Lloyd Cruz vs. Jericho Rosales as the Next Award-Winning Comedy Actor

John Lloyd Cruz vs. Jericho Rosales as the Next Award-Winning Comedy Actor

Matinee idols and highly acclaimed actors John Lloyd Cruz and Jericho Rosales take their acting skills to different places starting this Saturday (September 14), as they take on two of ABS-CBN’s comedy shows, Goin’ Bulilit and Toda Max.

First up would be Jericho as he stars side-by-side with “Toda Max” cast members Angel Locsin, Vhong Navarro, and Ai-Ai delas Alas. In a different take on the popular kiligserye “Be Careful With My Heart”, Jericho will be playing a popular celebrity chef, often referred to as “Sir Chef”, who arrives in Beverly Gils to promote his cooking show, “Be Careful With My Cooking”. Lacking a chef assistant, he hires Justin (Vhong Navarro) to show off his cooking skills. However, when Justin joins Sir Chef behind the scenes, he discovers a secret that could ruin the celebrity chef’s career.

Meanwhile, as a light-hearted reminder to keep safe these days, Lloydie will be part of showing the funny things that could happen when it comes to relief centers and evacuation operations, while having fun with Philippine television’s favorite kids on the hit kiddie gag show “Goin’ Bulilit”. The kids will be delivering gags about the sticky situations that kids and adults can get themselves into—also serving as caution to keep away from harm. He will also be joining Aaliyah Belmoro in the segment “Mutyaya ng Masa” and Clarence Delgado in “How? How? With Islaw”.

In keeping with the current times, “Banana Split: Extra Scoop” also stays up to date this Saturday (September 14), as Melai Cantiveros has some things to say about her relationship and pregnancy. Aside from that, the cast will also be giving their take on the recently concluded Star Magic Ball, and Donya Bading (Jayson Gainza) will be taking on the role of Janet Napoles in the segment “Hot Issue”.

The hit teen series “LUV U” also taps into conflicts that should be resolved, as Marj (Mika dela Cruz) decides that her friends Lexie (Alexa Ilacad) and Shirley (Sharlene San Pedro) should also come to a truce with the boys of the Breakers, Benj (Nash Aguas), Drake (Jairus Aquino) and Archie (Kobi Vidanes). Will the long-running quarrel between the teens finally come to an end and will new relationships finally be formed?
