Celebrating Mother’s Day in the legacy and evolution of music

This Mother’s Day, let us honor our mothers, grandmothers, mother-figures and the like, as the world celebrates the toughest job in the world – being a mother, with no less than the company and inspiration of music.  

To children whose mothers are watching them from above, remember and relive the memories you’ve shared with her and keep her legacy alive just like how music icon Prince will continue to live on.

And because it’s every mother’s special day, take her to see authentic Filipino classical talents in action at the “Klassikal Music Foundation presents: Songs from a Silver World” at the RCBC Plaza this May 7th or let her be in control just like Julie Anne San Jose’s “In Control” anniversary concert at the KIA Theatre.  And if you’re young mom needs some moving forward inspiration, let her take some cues from Sam Concepcion’s fresh and new vibe in his third album “Bago.”

You could also dance and sing the night away as you experience and discover the evolution of music in MTV Music Evolution with some of the best contemporary international and local artists. But you can also simply have fun at home with your mom’s favorite music by female artists or from the new favourites from Myx Music Awards.

Whatever’s your way of celebrating, we’ll sure your mothers will treasure the moments.

Just as the case of The CompanY, Journey’s Arnel Pineda continues to make waves as he recently signed a multi-deal for his solo projects and at the same time juggling tour schedules with his band.

The annual MYX Music Awards also celebrates and recognizes the Pinoy’s love of their own, as it rounds up the final list of nominated musicians and their songs that shaped and shook the OPM world this past year.

Surely not to miss as well is Justin Bieber’s applause-worthy comeback as he rises from scandals from the past two years, and proving to everyone that he’s learned his lessons quite well by coming up with back-to-back hits ever since revealing himself to the spotlight once again through his new album.

And finally, it’s also a celebration of lasting music legacy left by music icons David Bowie, Natalie Cole and Eagle’s Glenn Frey.
