This month’s Music Roll is all about paying tribute, paying tribute to second chances in the midst of new challenges of Popoy and Basha’s married life, paying tribute to nostalgia, memories of our old self and of welcoming new chapters in life from Adele’s groundbreaking new album “25,” paying tribute to people in music who continue to put melodies in the lives of people in Star Awards for Music and the AMAs, paying tribute to collaborations and jazz traditions from Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, paying tribute to love and blessings we have received and giving back to people from ABS-CBN and GMA Christmas station IDs, and paying tribute to people who have joined the Creator and that they will guide us from among the stars.
It’s September and we know what that means – the start of the long holiday celebration in the country. And because it’s Ber months already, frequent afternoon and evening downpour is almost an everyday sight, along with even long hours on the road of course. But this is no season to fret, instead of letting the heavy downpour and traffic dampen our spirits, let music be our beacon of light amidst the rain and endless-like traffic.
This month, let the start of the season be the spark of the celebration for OPM all-originals from Sitti, TJ Monterde, and Moira Dela Torre; for fiery inspiration and passion from Heneral Luna’s theme song; to new beginnings and challenges from Nicole Asensio’s ascend as a solo artist; to JaDine carrying the country’s pride to foreign shores; to love’s redemptive nature in Aicelle Santos’ new single; and to flying high with Kyla.
