But here's the good news!...Catch Adam Young, better known as the one-man band OWL CITY is set to perform in Manila on March 14, 2010 @ SMX Convention Centre, Mall of Asia. Young received much attention for songs he had uploaded in MySpace which would later result in his signing to a major record label.

And in 2009, the released of the major label debut album Ocean Eyes gained Owl City's mainstream popularity which also spawned the hit single "Fireflies".

MICHAEL BUBLE is engaged!

Here's a latest buzz about our favorite pop jazz singer Michael Buble. He is reportedly getting hitched to 22 year old Argentinian actress named Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre- that's one hell of a name ha?

Buble proposed to Lopilato in November in front of her family in Argentina with a diamond engagement ring he custom designed with a Vancouver-based jeweler. Actually, this lucky lady was featured in the music video Havent met you yet, the first single from Buble's latest cd Crazy Love.

And speaking of that new album, two of my favorite cuts there are posted here for music streaming:

AT THIS MOMENT this song is so beautiful! It has so much feeling and it gives me chills everytime i hear it!

HOLD ON the second single from the album. This one was taken from his brilliant performance at Abbey Road.

Michael Buble previously dated actress Emily Blunt and was engaged once before to singer and actress Debbie Timuss. Luisana Lopilato has actually been engaged twice before. Let’s hope this time around it works out for the couple.

I NEVER TOLD YOU by Colbie Caillat

From her album BREAKTHROUGH, this song is one of the reason why i really luv Colbie Caillat!

I miss those blue eyes
how you kiss me at night
i miss the way we sleep

like there's no sunrise
like the taste of your smile
i miss the way we breathe

but i never told you what i should had said
no i never told you, i just held it in

and now, i miss everything about you
i cant believe that i still want you
after all the things we've been through
i miss everything about you, without you ohhhh

i see your blue eyes everytime i close mine
you make it hard to see
where i belong to when i'm not around you
its like im not with me

but i never told you what i should had said
no i never told you, i just held it in

and now, i miss everything about you
i cant believe that i still want you
after all the things we've been through
i miss everything about you, without you ohhhh

but i never told you what i should have said
no i never told you, i just held it in

and now, i miss everything about you
i cant believe that i still want you
after all the things we've been through
i miss everything about you, without you ohhhh

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

First things first: I'd like to wish my blog friends a very happy and prosperous New Year.

A new year is a great time for maki
ng changes, and 2010 is no different. I had to admit that I had so many mistakes last year in terms of all the aspects in my life but as always they say, we all learn from those things happened. But today signals the time for a fresh start, a time to charter a new path and a time to set new goals and make plans to enrich our lives this year.

I find this following quote from Benjamin Franklin to be an inspiration for me as I think of my own resolutions: “Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man."

And for my initial music post on this blog. id like to share more acoustic songs from an artist who truly emerges in 2009, i'm talking about teen singing sensation Justin Bieber.
