WILSON PHILLIPS Album Signing at Robinsons Galleria

Anyone heard the lyrics: "You're in love, that's that's the way, it should be, coz I want you to be happy. You're in love and I know, that you're not in love with me, ooh it's enough for me to know that you're in love...?"  I bet you all did! It's from the song "You're In Love."

It was the song that sisters, Carnie and Wendy Wilson with Chynna Phillips are popularly known as the trio Wilson Phillips popularized. They also sang "Release Me," "The Dream Is Still Alive," and my personal favorite "Hold On" among many others.

The Wilson Phillips are in the country for a one-night concert at the Mall Of Asia Arena, on October 12, 2012.    I am just so lucky to have met them after their press conference on October 11th during their autograph session for their latest album "DEDICATED" at Robinsons Galleria Movieworld.

As expected fans from all ages came to the event including myself and my friend, Sheena.  Kiosk tables from Astroplus and Odyssey were there to sell the CDs. Each purchase will include a stub which will serve as your entrance to the main venue. 

The ladies of Wilson Phillips still looking fab!

The ladies are really sweet.  When I got the chance to talk to them, they said they are enjoying their stay in the Philippines. Carnie even shared that Filipinos are the sweetest people ever! (And that made me so proud I am one! Thanks Carnie!)

My signed CDs.
Their new album are renditions of their famous parents' (Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys and Michelle Phillips and John Phillips of The Mama's and The Papa's) classic songs which they have also dedicated to them.

"Dedicated" Album's Tracks:

1. California Dreamin'
2. Wouldn't It Be Nice
3. Dedicated To The One I Love
4. Don't Worry Baby

6. I Can Hear Music
7. Monday Monday
8. Do It Again

Thanks so much Wilson Phillips!  Come to Manila again sooon!

FOSTER THE PEOPLE in Manila CD Signing

FOSTER THE PEOPLE was in Manila for a one-night concert last Saturday, October 6th, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.  The American Indie Pop band is consists of Mark Foster, Cubbie Pink, Mark Pontius, Isom Innis, and Sean Cimino with the first three as the main band members.  Their single "Pumped Up Kicks,"  is my personal favorite in their TORCHES album, but I still suggest you grab the album because it is really worth it! You'll end up playing the entire album over and over and over! I swear! 

Hours before their first concert in the Philippines, the band were scheduled for a Press Conference and Album Signing at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel.   The Torches Album Signing was an exclusive event for Foster The People Filipino Fans like me, so there I went!   All of us lined up at Astrovision at Edsa Shang Mall to get our passes and CDs, then after we went at the hotel where the boys are waiting.

The Holding Area

Excitement filled the room all waiting for Foster The People

This is where we thought the signing would happen =)
 After the PressCon we all lined up for the album signing.  The band and management requested that there should be no personal cameras. So S-A-D! =(

This is what I have before the boys entered the room.
