Jason Dy Reinvents His Music with the R&B Dance Track “Ulit-ulit” - His 1st Single as Newly-Signed Star Music Artist

Jason Dy faces a new era in his music career with the release of the song “Ulit-ulit,” his first project as the newest member of ABS-CBN’s Star Music family.

The singer-songwriter who is celebrating his 8th year in the industry launched the single last March 1 or exactly eight years after he was named “The Voice Philippines” season 2 champion.

This time, the Kapamilya balladeer dubbed as the country’s Prince of Soul reinvents himself by exploring other genres beyond what he was used to starting with the R&B dance track “Ulit-ulit,” which is about one’s frustration over repeated arguments in a relationship.

"The song talks about that point in the relationship where the fights are getting repetitive. It’s just the same argument over and over and nothing gets resolved,” he shared. “It’s about whether the relationship is worth saving or it is heading towards the end.

Jason is thrilled to finally be sharing the single that he penned a few years back. “I actually wrote the song years ago and I’m glad it’s finally getting released.”

“Ulit-ulit” will be part of his mini-album that is set to be released this year under Star Music.

Check out Jason’s latest song “Ulit-ulit,” now available on various music streaming platforms. For more details, follow Star Music on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, and YouTube.

(Trailer) "The Pope’s Exorcist," Your Next Must-Watch Horror Movie

Bringing the story of Father Gabriele Amorth, known by some as the Dean of Exorcists and to others as the Vatican’s Exorcist, to the big screen was no easy task.

Watch the trailer:

Before The Pope’s Exorcist, other producers had tried to adapt Father Amorth’s best-selling memoirs into a film but none were able to convince the celebrated priest – except for Michael Patrick Kaczmarek, one of the producers of The Pope’s Exorcist.

I believe I was able to succeed where other producers failed in that I was able to convince Father Amorth about my sincere religious devotion,” explains Kaczmarek. “In our exchanges, I was able to convince him that if he took the chance to work with me, that I would try to make sure the Catholicity would be preserved in the film – and that he would be respected as a person along with the Church and his religious order.

The producers lovingly refer to the film as “the James Bond of exorcists” because of the wealth of stories, anecdotes and real exorcism cases from its source material, Amorth’s memoirs An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories.

In The Pope’s Exorcist, Amorth is played by Academy Award®-winner Russell Crowe. “Gabriele Amorth had a purity of faith that gave him a level of courage and bravery to do the job,” says Crowe. “It’s a very dark pursuit – you’re dealing a lot with people who are suffering deeply.”

To make the film frightening beyond the jump scares, screenwriter Michael Petroni created a narrative that seeks to delve deep into the motivations of the devil. “This required our character of Father Amorth to do some serious investigating and uncovering of a secret history, to find connections where the demon might have appeared before,” says producer Kaczmarek.

In the film, Father Amorth and his partner, Father Esquibel, played by Daniel Zovatto, investigate a possession at St. Sebastian Abbey in Castile, Spain, where a young family is making a fresh start by renovating the old property. “In the movie, the abbey has a long history with the Catholic Church, and there are some things that happened there which get uncovered,” says Crowe. “These events took place during some of the darkest days of the Catholic Church, as punishment was meted out to people who didn’t measure up to the depth of their belief. We all thought that that was an excellent way to dig deeper into the history of Spain.”

Lending greater authenticity to the film is executive producer Edward Siebert, S.J., a Jesuit priest and founder of Loyola Productions.

Stories of good and evil are as old as time but the story of Father Amorth and his unique role in fighting evil is an important story to tell,” says Siebert. “The Pope’s Exorcist reflects on some of the most challenging aspects of faith. When we shed light on sin and evil, it reflects back the pain of our past and present. While the demons in the film may seem extreme and exaggerated, the movements of disturbance and evil inside of us have the power to overtake us. I have always believed that the power of prayer, the naming of demons, the forgiveness of sins, and the conquering of evil are central to faith. Any story that ends with the enemy’s defeat is ultimately a story of hope.”

In cinemas starting April 19, The Pope's Exorcist is distributed in the Philippines by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Finally! Alanis Morissette 1-Night Concert in Manila this August 2023

The album, which produced a string of Top 10 songs like "You Oughta Know," "Hand in My Pocket," and "Ironic,". It also won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year. Making the 21-year-old Morissette the youngest performer to ever win the prestigious honor, the album was ranked number 69 on Rolling Stone’s list of "the 500 best albums of all time."

Morissette won a total of seven Grammys and was nominated fourteen times. Included among her finest songs are You Learn, Head Over Feet, All I Really Want, Thank You, Mary Jane, Uninvited, Perfect, Forgiven, Right Through You, Wake Up, and many more.

And she has been one of the most influential singer-songwriter musicians in contemporary music since 1995. Her deeply expressive music and performances have received widespread praise from critics. Jagged Little Pill, Morissette's debut album from 1995, was followed by nine more eclectic and acclaimed albums. She has composed music for theatrical releases and appeared in films both big and small. Aside from entertainment, she is a strong advocate for female empowerment, as well as spiritual, psychological, and physical well-being. Alanis Morissette launched Conversation with Alanis Morissette in 2016, a monthly podcast featuring conversations with a variety of revered authors, doctors, educators, and therapists on a wide range of psychosocial topics ranging from spirituality to developmentalism to art.

On December 5, 2019, “JAGGED LITTLE PILL” the musical made its Broadway debut at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City.

Three years into the pandemic but moving towards a sense of normalcy in our lives, C-Lium Fibre, the top-of-mind psyllium fiber brand¹ is inspiring Filipinos to realize their health goals through habit formation so they can continue to be more present for the people who matter in their lives.

Equally important to a healthy lifestyle is getting the right nutrients. With a focus on fiber, the campaign hopes to impart the benefits of fiber as part of our day-to-day nutrition and how daily supplementation can help deter chronic diseases. 

Fiber for Fitness

According to research, getting enough fiber can help prevent heart disease, diabetes and regulate bowel movement.  

One rich source of fiber is psyllium fiber which pushes away toxins from the body. It has soluble and insoluble fiber which works in two ways:   

1. It binds excess bad cholesterol, excess fat, and sugar and  
2. Pushes them out of the body.  

According to DOST-FNRI, we need at least 20 to 25 grams of fiber daily.

C-Lium Fibre has both 100% natural soluble and insoluble fiber in convenient formats: capsule and husk. A daily dose of a sachet of C-Lium Fibre alone can give you 5 grams of fiber which is equivalent to 5 cups of Romaine lettuce, 8 cups of cooked white rice, or 3 medium-sized tomatoes.7   

C-Lium Fibre’s husk format comes in regular and flavored variants. 

C-Lium Fiber in Four Easy Steps: 

1. Pour a sachet of C-Lium Fibre husk into half an 8. oz glass of water.
2. Stir for 10 seconds.
3. Drink immediately and completely.
4. Follow with another glass of water or juice.  

For capsule, take 5 capsules before breakfast and 5 capsules before dinner to get the equivalent of 5 grams fiber.
