Jed Madela Celebrates 15th Year in Showbiz with “Higher Than High: the 15th Anniversary Concert” at the Big Dome


Jed Madela normally celebrates his showbiz anniversary in style, and this year is no different as he marks his fifteenth year in the industry with his first-ever solo concert at the Araneta Coliseum with "Higher than High: the 15th Anniversary Concert" happening on November 16 (Friday) at 8 PM

"It has always been the dream of every artist to stand onstage and scream 'Good evening, Araneta!' I'm very excited and nervous at the same time. Excited that finally, I will be performing solo in the Big Dome and nervous because there's a lot of pressure on me now to fill its seats," he said. 

According to Jed, his manager thought of the concert's title. "She came up with it based on what audiences expect from me whenever I'm onstage - which is sing big songs that require me to belt to the heavens. . . . but more than me doing songs like that, my main goal as far as this concert is concerned is to take the audience to the next level." 

Jed and his team began conceptualizing the show early this year. He is proud of the show and says they pulled out all the stops to ensure that "Higher than High: the 15th Anniversary Concert" will be one for the books. 

"We worked really hard on all the numbers, especially the opening," he shared. "I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I will say that the show starts the moment you step into the venue." 

Jed shared that the show is dedicated to those who have supported him and his dreams since the beginning - from the release of "I'll Be Around," his first album, to his star turn at the 2005 World Championships of Performing Arts, to his current status as one of OPM's greats. 

"I am so full of gratitude to everyone who has been with me since day one. The ones who never left me. I may not have a horde of screaming fans, but I know that I have supporters who quietly support me in their own little way. Knowing that I've touched their lives is enough for me. As long as there are people who are willing to listen to me sing, I will keep singing." 

"Higher than High: the 15th Anniversary Concert" is directed by Marvin Caldito.

Jed is set to perform with the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra - under the baton of Maestro Gerard Salonga - and the Philippine Madrigal Singers.

Ryan Gosling Plays “First Man” on the Moon, Neil Armstrong

Two-time Oscar-nominee Ryan Gosling stars as real-life astronaut Neil Armstrong in Universal Pictures' First Man, the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. 


Time and again, Gosling has proven his commitment to his art—as seen in his preparation for his Oscar®-nominated role in La La Land, when he learned to play the piano in just three months.  Likewise, during his preparation for his role in The Notebook, Gosling spent two months soaking up the culture of Charleston, South Carolina, and, just like his character, actually learned to build furniture.


In First Man, Gosling proves his dedication in time spent studying to portray the global icon.  For the production team, director and star are inextricably linked in their shared passion for perfection.  "Ryan has a commitment to doing excellent work," sums producer Marty Bowen.  "He is keenly aware of the legacy he's leaving behind and often, likeminded people find one another in material that they can connect with.  It makes sense that Ryan and director Damien Chazelle want to work together.  When you watch La La Land, the character that Ryan plays is someone who's obsessive about his craft…because Ryan's obsessive about his craft."


Gosling brings a special something to his roles, commends Bowen.  "It's his humanity.  It's his understanding of sentiment…and not sentimentality.  So often people want to overwhelm you with their emotion.  It's the truly great craftsmen who know how to dispense it in a way that keeps you leaning in."


Gosling admits that becoming Neil Armstrong would have been impossible without the help of numerous collaborators.  "I was very privileged to meet with Janet Armstrong before she passed away.  I was also very fortunate to talk with Neil's two sons, Rick and Mark, and spend time with Neil's sister, June, at their farm in Wapakoneta, Ohio, where Neil was born.  The Armstrong Air & Space Museum, and both NASA's Cape Canaveral and Houston facilities, opened their doors to me.  There were also experts on set daily to advise on the specifics of every mission we were trying to replicate.  I also had almost constant access to author James Hansen and his book First Man; a work of more than 700 pages of meticulous research.  I've never had so much help researching a role or been involved with so many people who were so enthusiastic and happy to provide it."


Gosling's fascination for Armstrong and the men who were his cohorts permeated the production.  "My first instinct in preparing for this role was to learn how to fly.  Neil was flying before he could drive; it seemed an integral part of who he was, so I thought I should start there.  At a certain point in my training, I was asked to force the aircraft into a self-imposed 'stall,' and I had a moment of clarity.  This was a terrible idea.  I understood in that moment why Neil was destined to be one of the world's greatest pilots and why I was not.  Like many other astronauts, Neil began as a test pilot.  It takes a certain kind of person to knowingly get into an aircraft that has never been flown and take it to its breaking point, for the sole purpose of finding its flaws so that we might move our understanding of aeronautics forward." 


One of Gosling's biggest fans on set was the actress who plays his on-screen wife.  "Ryan is warmth personified," sums Claire Foy, who portrays Janet Armstrong.  "He doesn't have to work very hard at that, I don't think.  He's incredibly likable as a person, and that's the thing with Neil.  I don't think he was antisocial or rude; he wasn't conventional.  He didn't do what everybody does, which is try and make everyone else feel great about themselves…and if there's an awkward silence, try and fill it.  Innately, Ryan is kind-hearted and generous and warm and genuine…that's just naturally what he brings to the table."


First Man is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.  Follow us on Facebook at
