Francine Diaz, Seth Fedelin, Alexa Ilacad, and Other Star Magic Artists “Share the Magic” this Christmas

‘Tis the season to celebrate love as one family as Francine Diaz, Seth Fedelin, Alexa Ilacad, and other Star Magic artists “Share the Magic” by giving back to their select beneficiaries.

“Share the Magic” is an initiative of Star Magic wherein artists spread the love and gratitude this Christmas season by helping a charity or beneficiary of their choice.

“Fractured” stars Francine, Seth, and Raven Rigor kicked off the campaign by visiting an orphanage named Ephesus: Home for Girls. Francine couldn’t help but feel emotional after they were able to bond with the children and learn more about their struggles at an early age.

We want to share the love, especially sa mga bata. Ayokong mawala sa kanila ‘yung Christmas feeling. Kasi kapag lumalaki ka na, parang nawawala ‘yung excitement na magpa-Pasko na,” said Francine in a vlog released on Star Magic’s YouTube channel on why they chose to visit the orphanage.

Alexa Ilacad also spread Christmas cheer, together with Star Magic comedians Eric Nicolas and Nonong Ballinan, with “Laban Lungs: A Benefit Concert for Sherwin Buenvenida.” Sherwin is a former head writer for ABS-CBN who is currently battling cancer.

I can’t imagine what kuya Sherwin went through, what his family went through. I hope you know that I’m here. We’re going to do everything we can to help,” said Alexa in a heartfelt message.

Viewers can look forward to more "Share the Magic" videos featuring other artists soon as Star Magic continues to celebrate the magic of giving back.

Meanwhile, Star Magic artists will come together once more as they celebrate the spirit of togetherness and thanksgiving in “Star Magical Christmas,” which will be livestreamed worldwide on Star Magic's YouTube channel on November 19 (Sunday) at 6 PM (Manila time).

Viewers will be able to stream the white carpet event and the main program where they can tune in to their favorite artists’ fun Christmas-themed attires and celebrate the milestones of Star Magic as the talent agency awards its loyal artists.

It found its way to Clive Davis, founder and president of Arista Records, who immediately offered Air Supply a record deal. The song was released in 1980 and became the fastest selling in the world, topping the charts in a multitude of countries. “All Out of Love” was the second single released and topped the worldwide charts once again.

Kapamilya P-POP Boy Band BGYO Records NSYNC’s New Single “Better Place” For Filipino Audience From the Movie “Trolls Band Together” Soundtrack

🎶I’m so excited to see you excited🎶... goes the chorus of “Better Place,” lead single from the official soundtrack for Trolls Band Together, and the first musical release in two decades by one of the most successful boy bands in pop music history, *NSYNC.

Well, P-pop fans, get ready to be even more psyched! Popular P-pop boy band BGYO has recorded their own official version of the “Better Place” chorus to celebrate the release of the much-awaited Trolls Band Together in the Philippines on November 15.

I enjoyed listening to the music in the past Trolls movie so we are very excited to be a part of this one!” says Nate Porcalla, the youngest of the group. His BGYO brothers - Gelo Rivera, Akira Morishita, JL Toreliza and Mikki Claver are just as excited to share their version of the catchy “Better Place” chorus with their fans, the ACEs.

Beloved for its signature psychedelic joy-bomb of new and classic pop hits, the latest sequel in the Trolls movie franchise puts the spotlight on band music. And when it comes to Pinoy pop music or P-pop – our own version of deliciously catchy pop band music in the same vein as K-pop and J-pop – who knows better than BGYO? Dubbed as the “Aces of P-pop,” BGYO has taken the Philippine music industry (and then some) by storm.

Before debuting as idols in 2021, Rivera, Morishita, Toreliza, Claver and Porcalla, trained under ABS-CBN’s Star Hunt Academy with the help of Filipino mentors, as well as South Korean coaches from MU Doctor Academy. The band, whose name stands for “Becoming the change, Going further, You and I, Originally Filipino,” released their debut single, “The Light,” in January 2021, and in less than two weeks after its release, it had already surpassed 100,000 streams on Spotify. The song’s music video was also the fastest P-pop music video to reach 1 million views.

Their second single, “The Baddest,” also made quite a splash. It ranked #1 on two global charts, Billboard’s Next Big Sound and Pandora Predictions Chart. And earlier this year, BGYO was included by the US Recording Academy or the Grammys on its list of exciting Asian artists to check out, for “redefining what it means to be a boy band in the Philippines.”

This might be the best movie yet so I hope everybody can watch it. Bring the whole family!”, Nate says.

In Trolls Band Together, Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) are back for an action-packed, all-star, rainbow-colored new chapter in the beloved Trolls franchise. After two films of true friendship and relentless flirting, Poppy and Branch are now officially, finally, a couple (#broppy)! As they grow closer, Poppy discovers that Branch has a secret past. He was once part of her favorite boyband phenomenon, BroZone, with his four brothers. BroZone disbanded when Branch was still a baby, as did the family, and Branch hasn’t seen his brothers since. But when Branch’s bro Floyd is kidnapped for his musical talents by a pair of nefarious pop-star villains, Branch and Poppy embark on a harrowing and emotional journey to reunite the other brothers and rescue Floyd from a fate even worse than pop-culture obscurity.

Trolls Band Together stars a dazzling cast of musical superstars and comedic powerhouses as new franchise characters, including Troye Sivan, Eric Andre, Daveed Diggs and Kid Cudi, as Branch’s brothers and BroZone bandmates; Amy Schumer and Andrew Rannells, as the pop-star villains who kidnap Branch’s brother Floyd; as well as Zosia Mamet, RuPaul Charles, and four-time Grammy nominee and Latin Grammy winner Camila Cabello.

The returning cast includes Zooey Deschanel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kenan Thompson, Aino Jawo, Caroline Hjelt, Anderson .Paak, Ron Funches and Kunal Nayyar.

Get ready for another dose of infectious pop music when Trolls Band Together opens in cinemas November 15.
