To discover new music, listen to artists’ powerful vocals and just be at the moment with the beat is truly life-changing. It has transformed us to be a super fan, as we become inspired and celebrate music through any circumstances and battles that we may have in life.

Taking pictures of them has been a knock-down challenge to our creativity, freedom of expression and artistry. It has been an eventful and interesting 2016 with every act brought to us by Wilbros Live, Ovation Productions, Midas Promotions, Royale Chimes Concerts & Events and Concert Republic, through one of the country’s best PR specialist, Grace Foronda (GLF Events Management Services).
