‘Care Divas’: A Special Run for the New Filipino Heroes

I once encountered an unanswered question before. How can you really get people to go to the theater especially the ones who never stepped foot in a theater before? It made me think about this, “Are there enough reasons that the theater experience is still worth the effort? How about Care Divas?”

Even though theater seems to be a good medium of full intended experience, the Filipinos’ level of maturity and audience appreciation to the theater is still low. But theater as part of the cultural menu, nowadays more and more opportunities and great ideas come in from young minds as they become braver and fearless enough to gamble to wider boundaries.

Think “Rak of Aegis,” “Katy,” “Sa Wakas,” “Ako si Josephine,” “Dirty Old Musical,” “Mula sa Buwan,” and now Care Divas is back for a special run.

Kyle Echarri Introduces New Album, His Moment to Shine

Stating being busy is just an easy excuse. Considering the Manila traffic, I find it hard to really make time to attend to other things out of the way and those things that are not really work related. We would like to think that we prioritize the things that matter the most. But with the combination of choice and willingness, as well as priority, I attended Kyle Echarri’s blog con recently. Yes!

I’m just happy to be able to make it on time with the help and the invitation of Sir Richard Paglicawan of Lionhearttv. I had to rush to the blog con venue at the MCA Music office in Ortigas Center after office hours. I miss working with his group, connecting, learning and engaging with them.

I’m expecting a big group of bloggers but nothing beats a homey intimate meet up with the 13-year-old teen singing star and The Voice Kids alumna Kyle Echarri as he releases his first solo debut album billed as “It’s Me, Kyle.”

Released under MCA Music, Kyle’s first carrier single is an original song entitled “Fall for Me.” A song that showcases his maturing voice, and he’s dedicating it to all the people who have supported him since day one of his career. “I dedicate to my fans this song as the lyrics tells us ‘You and me, we’re a perfect melody,’ because without them, my career would be nothing.” Lyric video below courtesy of KyleEcharriVEVO.

Fans can now listen to and download the album “It’s Me, Kyle” through digital downloads and streaming via Spinnr, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer and VEVO. You can buy the CDs at Astroplus and Astrovision outlets.
