JaDine's Love Journey Reach New Heights in 'JadINe Love World Tour' in Middle East and Europe


Much has been written about the real and reel-life romance of James Reid and Nadine Lustre but no words can capture the phenomenon that their love team, best known as JaDine, has spurred from movie, television, and recently via the concert stage at The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) JadINe Love World Tour in the Middle East and Europe on March 18 and 19 in Qatar and Dubai and March 26 and 27 in London and Milan.

As soon as the lights went on, the music started playing and the love team started to come out one after the other, the walls of the Doha Convention Center, Al Nasr Leisureland, ExCel London and Palasesto Milan reverberated with delightful screams, sing-alongs and calls for encore from overseas Filipino fans, including some who came all the way from Rome, Austria, Germany, Spain, Norway and the U.S. and that also included a few foreign nationals.

 

 
The approval from the fans did not come with just the ‘kilig factor.  James, a singer-musician himself proved that he is definitely more than good looks as he serenaded his lady love with worldwide ballad hits.

Nadine on the other hand is also a singer herself, and a graceful dancer too.  Having recently won countless awards at the Myx Music Awards 2016, Nadine has proven her worth as a well-rounded artist much to the amazement of fans.  In the four-city tour, Nadine sang various hits from her own album and various female artists'.

Together on stage, the two were a delight to watch as they performed their most famous duets such as “Bahala Na,” classics such as “It Might Be You” and contemporary hits such as “Marvin Gaye” by Charlie Puth. 

The famous couple continued to play beautiful music together figuratively and literally as they did an interpretative dance to Juan Miguel Severo’s poignant poetry, one of the most memorable parts of their teleserye “On the Wings of Love” or OTWOL to most.

While the couple was not necessarily seeking their parents’ approval at this point, the duo seemed to have earned the veritable yes when James’ mom Maria Aprilyn “Ella” Marquinez came to support Nadine and her son’s concert.  For the United Kingdom (UK) leg, it was one for the books.

 


Highlighting the show was the “On the Wings of Love” segment where Rockoustic Princess Yeng Constantino reached the high notes to deliver one of the famous Filipino remake of a world hit that has been interpreted over and over again because of its timeless theme – On The Wings of Love.

Constantino shared an interesting story during the tour.  Like a big sister, she acted as mentor to Nadine who like Yeng is also a singer.  Yeng said: “In every tour, there is a new tip that I share with Nadine.”  Together, they performed Original Pilipino Music (OPM) hits both Yeng’s and of other OPM artists’ such as “Turete by Moonstar 88.

Meantime, performing more of the hits from one of the most successful teleseryes of all time is King of R & B JayR.  “Ang Probinsyano’s” Tart ‘Doris’ Carlos headlined the pre-show event.

Their Manila concert may have witnessed how the two became real-life partners, but in the four cities, JaDine treated the fans with their own kilig moments.

While thanking James for their years as friends first and then partners, Nadine quipped, “Thank you for making me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world.” The crowd went wild when James replied “That is because you are."

 


James and Nadine did not only entertain and thrill the crowd but also spread the love that’s been overflowing from both James and Nadine and as well as also from fan love.   

Sharing the Love

What touched OFs in London most was when the breakout love team personally visited the nurses at the Maple wing of the Ashford & St. Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation to pay tribute to their hard work and devotion to their families.

All these adventures and more will be captured in a travelogue dubbed “JaDine Flying High on Love Special” airing tomorrow, April 10.  Catch the much-anticipated special on TFC’s various platforms worldwide: internet protocol television (IPTV), satellite (live in the Middle East and Europe), cable, and online via TFC’s official online service TFC.tv

Spoiler Alert! 'Captain America: Civil War' (Video)


Will less than three weeks before “Captain America: Civil War” erupts in the Philippines, Marvel Studios has released three, new video featurettes to help fans cope with the long wait.

First is the clip titled “The Past is Prelude” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Fc-qgLGQ-I) which features footage from the first Captain America and Iron Man films, highlighting the philosophical differences between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark that may have made a confrontation inevitable.

The second video, “Brothers in Arms” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8K5QY8X91vI) features directors Joe and Anthony Russo along with star Chris Evans talking about the appeal of “Civil War” and why it stands apart from superhero hero movies in general and the films we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The last featurette, “In Good Company” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbiQhAF-X3Y) has the women of the movie, Scarlett Johansson, Emily VanCamp, and Elizabeth Olsen, talking about their characters (Black Widow, Agent 13, and Scarlet Witch, respectively) and how they relate to the larger conflict.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.

Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens across the Philippines on April 27.

Marvel's “Captain America: Civil War” will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures through Columbia Pictures. Follow the official social media accounts of Marvel, namely, (FB) MarvelPhilippines, (Twitter) @marvelstudiosph and (Instagram) @marvelphilippines.

Famous Celebrities Support TFC #Vote4ASelfieWorthyPH Campaign


With the 2016 Philippine national elections set to open overseas tomorrow, April 9 (Manila time), more and more Kapamilya stars are heeding the call of The Filipino Channel (TFC) to #Vote4ASelfieWorthyPH, the premier network’s overseas voting campaign.

Part of TFC’s advocacy to promote overseas voting, in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs Overseas Voting Secretariat (DFA OVS) and COMELEC Office for the Overseas Voting, the campaign aims to make the voice of the overseas Filipino (OF) heard by way of their participation in the coming national elections. 

ABS-CBN entertainment and news personalities share TFC’s belief in the importance of the OF vote and have shown this by ‘casting’ their support by way of posting selfies of themselves against a backdrop or scenario they want improved for the country.

#Vote4ASelfieWorthyPH has seen the likes of stars comedienne – actress Marietta “Pokwang” Subong,” actress and “TFC Connect” host Dimples Romana; “The Voice” Finalist “Morissette; comedian-hosts Doris “Yaya Tart" Carlos of “Ang Probinsyano;” comedian-host and “Pangako Sa `Yos” DJ Jai Ho; indie film actor Nathan Lopez; Star Magic artist Inah Estrada posting on their social networking sites on causes that are close to their hearts, with the hope that they will see answers to these when they choose the right leaders.

In her Instagram (IG) post, Pokwang shares that she hopes to see a greener, healthier environment in the Philippines.  She posted: “Luntian at maaliwalas na kapaligiran.  May ganito ring tanawin sa ating bansang sinilangan…At upang mapanatili ang ganda ng lupang pinagkukunan ng biyaya, bumoto tayo ng tama…#Vote4ASelfieWorthyPH.”  Dimples Romana, “TFC Connect host,” believes that the future of the Filipino family lies in making the right decision in the coming elections.  She shared in her IG account, “For a brighter future for families, our kids and their kids, vote wisely, Kapamilya!

Beyond reporting the latest updates on overseas voting, TV Patrol anchor and Sagip Kapamilya advocate Bernadette Sembrano and respected broadcast journalist and overseas Filipino advocate Jing Castañeda, showed their support as well by doing their own selfies from the beautiful provinces of the homeland such as Albay and Bohol.

Sembrano did her own against a backdrop of the wide sea of Bohol. “If only the whole world could see how beautiful our country is…” she said in her post.

Meantime, award-winning broadcast journalist Julius Babao, DZMM Mismo host Awhel Paz and ANC’s Mornings@ANC host and widely followed reporter Ginger Conejero have also been actively supporting the campaign by sharing how a selfie can actually go a long way, to their social media followers.

Marasigan for her part, raised the issue on minority votes and said that while only .18% of the total voting population in the Philippines are indigenous people, they, like the OFs, have a voice in the coming elections.  “Their votes are gold.  THEY…WE are to keep these smiles pure and full of hope for a bright future,” Marasigan said.

In the final count, there are over 1.23 million registered voters according to the DFA OVS.  With the campaign, TFC, DFA OVS and COMELEC OFOV hope to convert them into voters.

Immediately after TV5's announcement of Viva Entertainment's Boss Vic del Rosario (the man behind the success of the country's top artists such as Sarah Geronimo, Cristine Reyes, James Reid, Nadine Lustre, Anne Curtis, etc.), to head its TV5 entertainment department in December, speculations surfaced that a possible transfer of network might happen when Sarah's contract with ABS-CBN expires this year.

But on Monday, Sarah officially shut off the rumor after her management VIVA Artists Agency decided to renew her exclusive Kapamilya contract with 2 more years.

Hopefully po makakakuha ako ng pelikula na talagang mai-in love ako, mai-inspire akong gawin, hindi 'yung parang, ‘Sige, gawin natin para lang may pelikula ka.’

But it must always make a stand. We must always stand for fairness, understanding, respect for human rights and a peaceful resolution.”

The annual Rotary Peace Award was instituted by the Makati Rotary Clubs led by the Rotary Club of Makati San Lorenzo in 1999 to give recognition to persons who embody Rotary’s ideals of peace, fellowship, and world understanding, whose actions and advocacies promote peace and international understanding through their selfless service to humanity.

The Rotary praised Charo for her “achievements as a global media leader” that has inspired the group to recognize media as a “powerful and influential tool for peace building.” She is the first media executive to be conferred with the distinct honor.

“I hope that the men and women of the company, and the country show empathy to promote peace and compassion for a better place to live in,” Charo added in an interview, where she also shared how she relishes the chance to mentor young blood that will help the Kapamilya network.

In 2014, Charo bagged three international honors for her outstanding leadership and accomplishments as the president and CEO of ABS-CBN. She won the Gold Stevie Award in the Female Executive of the Year in Asia, Australia, or New Zealand category at the prestigious Stevie Awards for Women in Business; the Gold Stevie Award for the Woman of the Year category for all Asia-Pacific nations (except Australia and South Korea) at the 2014 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards; and was named Asian Media Woman of the Year by ContentAsia, a premier information resource that covers the entertainment media industry across Asia-Pacific region. Before her retirement, Charo was also named chair of the International Emmys in 2015 and honored with the Outstanding Paulinian Alumna, among other awards.
