MANILA, Philippines - Acoustic artist Princess Velasco, boy band 1:43 and Myrus will perform their hits and covers of popular Original Pilipino Music (OPM) in the musical festival titled Philippines: One World Concert 2012 on June 10 at The Coliseum of the posh Hard Rock Hotel in Resorts World, Singapore.

“Our three banner talents Myrus, 1:43 and Princess Velasco represent the next wave of global Filipino artists. Their songs showcase how comparable OPM is to the music of the world,” says Singaporean director Jaden Zanders of Jaz-E Entertainment, the concert organizer.

The concert aims to attract the three artists’ growing fan base in Singapore — including the OFW (Overseas Filipino Workers) population — and in the rest of Southeast Asia.

“We expect a lot of Singaporeans to watch the show. We heard that there are even Malaysian and Indonesian fans that are flying here and buying tickets just to see them,” adds Zanders.

Myrus recently released his second all-original album titled Wanted under Viva Records featuring his radio and YouTube hit Pusong Lito. He is an Awit Awards nominee for Best New Male Recording Artist in 2010, an ASAP 24K awardee in 2009 and the head of an OPM advocacy program called Tunog Natin.

Myrus’ latest single Pusong Lito has gained a great deal of online following; it also became No. 1 in many radio stations in Greater Metro Manila, Cebu, Davao, Lucena, Cagayan de Oro and Cotabato. The song’s popularity was aided by its initial release in over 450 Mang Inasal stores, as part of the Mang Inasal Mang Aawit Music Advocacy Campaign.

The OPM pop heartthrobs of 1:43, composed of Anjo Resurreccion, Gold Aquino, Kim Nicolas and Yuki Sakamoto, have delivered the biggest love song of the season with their radio and YouTube hit song Sa Isang Sulyap Mo. The song is also a part of the Mang Inasal Mang Aawit Music Advocacy Campaign and was composed by Myrus.

Sa Isang Sulyap Mo, one of the soundtracks of the top-rating Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Teen Edition 4 on ABS-CBN, has been topping the charts of most radio stations nationwide and in the Pinoy Myx Countdown. Its official music video and reposts as well as lyrics videos have garnered over five million YouTube views so far. It is also one of the best-selling OPM songs online today according to mymusicstore.com.ph.  

Meanwhile, Vicor Music’s Princess is one of today’s most brilliant acoustic artists. With gold record albums under her name, she is a regular member of the group Sessionistas in the Sunday variety show ASAP.

Filipino fans are encouraged to support Princess, 1:43 and Myrus as they showcase OPM to Asia and the world, in a concert that celebrates the Filipinos’ fervor for freedom and Filipino musical artistry.
