Nameless Kids’ “Midsummer High” Single Evokes Bliss of Summer

Rising OPM band Nameless Kids introduce themselves with the laidback summer love anthem "Midsummer High" released under ABS-CBN's DNA Music.

The chill yet invigorating track - in the same vein as the music of LANY, Lauv, and The 1975 - perfectly sums up the euphoria of young love during heat of the summer and the road trips to unforgettable beach getaways.

The five-piece band is composed of Nhiko Sabiniano (keys), Kyle Perry (guitar), Kim Allen (guitar), Tati De Mesa (bass), and Imay Alconaba (drums). Priding themselves in being a collaborative group from different backgrounds and skill sets, Nameless Kids aim to release songs inspired by their individual music influences.

"Midsummer High" is now included in MusicShare's OPM New Hits playlist and Spotify's Fresh Finds Philippines and Slo Down -チル・ポップ- playlists. Netizens were also smitten by the song for setting off intense summer vibes in yet another year where most people are stuck at home due to the ongoing pandemic.

"Another year we missed the summer. Grabe ang vibes! Kudos," Althea Aranas commented on YouTube.

"This is gorgeous. Will definitely listen while driving my car with the windows down. Perfect," said another YouTube user.

"Midsummer High" was written and composed by band members Nhiko, Kim, and Kyle. The band produced the song with ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo.

Savor the remaining days of summer by streaming Nameless Kids' "Midsummer High" on various digital music platforms and checking out its official visualizer on the band's YouTube channel and DNA Music's Facebook.

Solenn Heusaff Bolzico Discovers an Effective Daily Fiber Supplement C-Lium Fibre

Top-of-mind fiber supplement CRX C-Lium Fibre jump-starts the mid-year with a new campaign and endorser, adding a new twist to fiber supplementation and how daily fiber intake can support digestive health, among other benefits.

With the tagline, "Start Your Day Right", C-Lium Fibre teaches Filipinos, especially those who have digestive issues, to start a daily morning habit of taking fiber from food and supplements.

C-Lium Fibre husk format is made from 100% natural psyllium fiber. Psyllium Fibre has both soluble and insoluble fiber that together, produce a dual cleansing action: 1. soluble fiber helps absorb bad cholesterol, excess fats, and sugar, and 2. insoluble fiber helps sweep them out of the body.² Recommended intake is once a day during breakfast.

To help spread the information on the benefits of Psyllium Fibre and adopt a healthy, daily fiber habit is fitness buff, businesswoman, actress, and mother of one, Solenn Heussaff Bolzico. Heussaff was the top choice for the brand because she represents the kind of people who prioritize the things that matter in life, including their digestive health.

Solenn, who recently became a mother in 2020, knows that with this new role, she has more to live for, and has put a priority on her health now, more than ever.

Solenn said: "I have been blessed to have an amazing husband and now a daughter, who support my endeavors. Now I have a new partner in health whom I can turn to, to keep my digestive health, even my cholesterol and sugar, in check."

C-Lium Fibre through its dual cleansing action helps control cholesterol plus blood sugar levels, and promotes digestive health along with proper diet and regular physical activity.

C-Lium Fibre, which can be mixed with water or juice, consumed as a capsule, or poured over food, is best taken at the start of the day or in the morning along with breakfast.

And now, C-Lium Fibre comes in three new husk flavors: Mango, Pineapple, and Dalandan in Sachets of 7s and 30s. All are available in major drugstores and supermarkets nationwide and online via PascualLab's official Shopee and Lazada stores.

Kritiko Releases New Song “Tama Ko’y Mali” Abouy an Illicit Love Affair

A song trilogy about an illicit love affair caps off with the release of rap virtuoso Kritiko's debut extended play (EP) titled "Tama Ko'y Mali."

Self-penned entirely by the Star Music artist, the freshly dropped mini album was crafted with the overarching theme of how sometimes, love can be dangerously right at the wrong time.

"The main message that I want to send through the EP is that it's never wrong to love. But if from the get-go you already know that you will hurt someone because of the relationship, then just let go. Because in the end, you'll be hurt and realize you've made a mistake," he explained.

Knowing that he is tackling a sensitive topic on relationships, Kritiko also emphasizes in the EP the importance of knowing when something is wrong and learning to let go to prevent disappointments and hurting other people.

The EP's key track "2AM" concludes the forbidden love story of his previous singles "AMAZAK" and "PM," which were both released in 2020. Also included in the EP are the tracks "Bakit Ikaw" and "Kahit Di Tayo."

The album drop also coincides with the back-to-back release of the music video of "PM" and "2AM."

This 2021, Kritiko won anew in HIMIG 11th Edition as one of the interpreters of 4th Best Song "Ang Hirap Maging Mahirap" composed by Kenneth Reodica. He first won in the songwriting competition as a composer in 2018 for his entry "Kababata."

Catriona Gray Comes Full Circle with “R.Y.F”

Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray revealed that her “R.Y.F” single speaks of her coming full circle in her journey as a beauty queen-turned-recording artist as well as her ‘call to action’ towards uplifting lives.

“’R.Y.F’ is an anthem for me. The song is very much a reflection of my journey. There is no better way to kick off my career in music than by singing this song,” shared Catriona during the #RYFSpotlight virtual media conference.

In a way, the role of lending my voice to ‘R.Y.F’ is very similar to being Miss Universe because the song has a message that I believe in,” she added.

Catriona explained that “R.Y.F” goes beyond its message of patriotism towards standing up for someone or something and advocating causes that matter amid challenging times.

It’s about raising your voice for something you believe in,” she said. “I know that it’s very trying for us because there are so many surmounting challenges, so it really is just trying to see how you can be of help to someone even in the smallest of ways.

The new “Raise Your Flag” rendition, with lyrics tweaked by Catriona herself, is a collaboration of ABS-CBN’s Star Music and CS Music. It was released just last Friday (May 28) and has been included in Spotify’s New Music Friday Philippines playlist.

The empowering single was originally written by Trisha Denise and ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo inspired by the beauty queen’s memorable statements from her Miss Universe journey. First recorded by Kapamilya singer KZ Tandingan and rapper Kritiko, the song is meant to raise awareness, advocate social movements, and bring inspiration.

Stream Catriona’s “R.Y.F” version, now available in various music streaming services. For more details, like Star Music on Facebook ( and follow it on Twitter and Instagram (@StarMusicPH).

John Lloyd Cruz Returns to Showbiz as Kapuso, GMA-7 Projects Revealed

Aside from his well-publicized guesting on GMA-7's daily pre-primetime game show 'Wowowin' for 6.6 Shopee Super Mega Fiesta which will be held at the Big Dome and will be aired on GMA on June 6, rumors have it that John Lloyd Cruz will soon be seen in newest Kapuso sitcom opposite Andrea Torres. The said big TV comeback of John Lloyd, happening on Kapuso network, will be produced by Willie Revillame and under the direction of former Kapamilya TV director Bobot Mortiz.

Last Saturday, May 29, John Lloyd was pictured signing a contract with Willie at the Will Tower Mall in Quezon City. It was also reported that the former Kapamilya actor also had a meeting with GMA Pictures president Annete Gozon-Valdes to seal his transfer to Kapuso network.

John Lloyd was last seen in ABS-CBN weekly sitcom "Home Sweetie Home" in 2017 before he  decided to quit showbiz and live an ordinary yet life in Cebu with ex-Ellen Adarna.

Just recently, the actor signed a management contract in Maja Salvador's talent agency Crown Artist Management.

Why Maja Salvador is the Perfect Fit as Newest Ambassador for Jollibee Burger Steak?

What makes Maja Salvador an artist unlike any other? How Maja goes all out in everything she does in her showbiz career

Maja Salvador is unlike any other. The actress, dancer, singer, and host has done it all - over the course of almost 20 years in Philippine showbiz, she’s entertained millions in every imaginable way, even going viral at times.

Maja’s skills and talents have reached legendary status at this point. Her range is versatile, seamlessly and effortlessly shifting from dramatic to comedic, making audiences feel a wide variety of emotions with the intensity of her performances.

These acting chops have earned her a multitude of awards both local and international, such as Best Actress awards in the Gawad Urian, Asian Academy Creative Awards, Asia Contents Awards, and the Busan International Film Festival. She’s also a total package as an entertainer, being able to captivate fans with her singing and dancing.

All of Maja’s talents have led her to become a Filipino artist without compare. That makes her the perfect ambassador for Jollibee Burger Steak, a meal that’s absolutely walang katulad. She’ll be debuting in Jollibee Burger Steak’s new campaign in a funny ad that pays homage to her creative skills, where she and an advertising agency try to put together a walang katulad Jollibee commercial that features her.

When we figured that we needed someone iconic to be the face of a meal that’s walang katulad, we knew we had to have Maja on board. She has really earned the distinction of being called an artist who is unlike any other. We’re excited for people to see how we honor her and her skills in this new campaign,” said Jollibee Asst. Vice President for Core and Complementary Products, Mari Aldecoa.

Maja also took some time to share her thoughts on being part of the new campaign.

We’d like to talk about you as a “walang katulad” performer. What makes you say that you are “walang katulad”?

Maja: Walang katulad na energy ang ibinibigay ko kapag nagpeperform ako. Gusto kong nararamdaman ng audience yung energy ko, at yung saya ko na nagpe-perform ako para sa kanila.

You are known for being a versatile actress, a sensational dancer, a YouTube star, and many more. Can you share some personal experiences that have contributed to your wide range of talents?

M: Hindi rin naging madali ang journey ko bilang isang artista. Maraming paghihirap din. Pero sa bawat paghihirap na ‘yun, ‘yun ang ginagamit ko para unti-unti kong maabot ang aking mga pangarap.

How do you prepare for your most intense scenes?

M: Nire-review nang nire-review ko ang script. Paulit-ulit kong binabasa ‘yung lines, para pagdineliver ko siya, nasa puso talaga. Kailangan bawa’t role na gagampanan mo ay i-embrace ‘yun.

What’s your reaction to some of your hit scenes becoming viral on the internet?

M: Walang katulad na saya! Dahil kahit matagal nang tapos ay buhay pa rin sila sa social media.

What’s your favorite Jollibee product, and why?

M: My favorite Jollibee product is Jollibee Burger Steak. Walang katulad yun. ‘Yung pag sinabi mong gusto mo ng Burger Steak, sa Jollibee ka talaga bibili. Nandoon ‘yung malasang beef at sauce niya na walang katulad talaga!

Why do you think that Jollibee Burger Steak is “walang katulad” like you?

M: Siguro ‘yung kahit madami nang bagong product o artista, kami yung hahanapin at hahanapin pa rin - dahil kami ay walang katulad.

Like Maja, you too can enjoy the walang katulad na beefy-saucy linamnam Jollibee Burger Steak any time for as low as Php 50 solo, and P69 as a value meal with drink. Have it safely delivered to you via the Jollibee Delivery App,, #87000, GrabFood, and foodpanda! It’s also available in Drive-Thru and Take Out.

Fr. Tito Caluag Helps Readers Develop their Own Style of Prayer in New Prayer Guide Book "Only Your Grace"

Father Tito Caluag has launched his latest book “Only Your Grace,” a personal guide to having a more intimate relationship with the Lord through prayers, reflection, action, and rhythm.

A lot of the processes here in the book really came from the basic formation program that we’ve been running for teachers. A lot of people were saying why don't I convert that to a book so more people can use the process, so that's how it started,” shared Father Tito.

The first in his three-set volume on prayers and reflection exercises, “Only Your Grace” was inspired by The Spiritual Exercises (SPEX) of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Its 26-week prayer, reflection, and journaling activities aim to guide readers in discovering their own “style of prayer.”

The ABS-CBN Books offering has five chapters - a chapter dedicated to preparing for the prayer journey, in remembering your personal dreams, being aware of your own self, learning about sin, forgiveness, and freedom, and a chapter dedicated to knowing, following, and loving God - all for the hope of creating a personalized approach to faith and spirituality.

I think all prayers must lead us to know what God wants us to do, what is the mission that God is asking of us. That is one of the main goals, if not the main goal of the book - to help you discern your mission. The second major theme is story and the book will help you recover your story, your personal narrative. I think in the end we discover our mission by rediscovering our story,” he added.

“Only Your Grace” was launched last Sunday (May 30) through a virtual book launch featuring the author’s inspiring conversations with Piolo Pascual, Chris Tiu, and Dingdong Dantes.

Prior to “Only Your Grace,” Father Tito released his prayer and devotional book “Give Thanks and Praise,” which received a special citation at the 42nd Catholic Mass Media Awards’ Best Special Feature category. The book can still be purchased via Lazada and Shopee for only P225, while its e-book version can be availed in Amazon, Kobo, Scribd, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

Father Tito is a spiritual adviser who currently serves as the ABS-CBN chaplain and leads the “Kapamilya Daily Mass” and “Kapamilya Sunday Mass,” as well as the inspiriting weekly conversation “Kapamilya Journeys of Hope.”

Deepen your prayer life and get a copy of “Only Your Grace” via, thru via Viber (0945-3528731), and on Shoppee and Lazada starting Wednesday (June 2). The “Only Your Grace” Kindle e-book version is also now available on Amazon. 

Watch the “Kapamilya Daily Mass,” “Kapamilya Sunday Mass,” and “Kapamilya Journeys of Hope” on My Prayer Channel on Facebook or YouTube.
