Perkins Twins–composed of fraternal twins Jesse and Christian Perkins–are the voices behind the theme song of Boy Abunda’s “Ikaw Na” segment in ABS-CBN’s late night newscast “Bandila.”
The duo shared that their upcoming debut album under Star Records includes a mix of English and Filipino songs, some of which were composed by them, while their digitally released most requested hit single “Ikaw Na” was composed by a multi-awarded veteran songwriter Vehnee Saturno.
When asked about their dream collaborations, Perkins Twins have their top choices. “We would love to work with talented sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga and the Philippines’ biggest female Pop Star Sarah Geronimo.”
Meanwhile, The Angelos–composed of George Tagle, Paolo Libiran, and Louie Abaigar– who are known as Asia’s I’ll Divo are ready to reintroduce itself not as hardcore classical group but a dynamic trio who can turn popular hits into all-time classics.
“We want to educate listeners that classical music need not to be intimidating,” said The Angelos. “We fuse favorite pop melodies and give them music that is something new and pleasing to their ears.”
If given a chace, The Angelos would like to collaborate with OPM icons including Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievara, Jed Madela and Bamboo.
The Angelos’ recently released album under Star Records carries eight tracks with one original composition entitled “The Calling”. It also features classical-pop revivals of ‘The Prayer,’ ‘Lipad ng Pangarap,’ ‘Paano Kita Pasasalamatan,’ ‘Ano’ng Nangyari Sa Ating Dalawa,’ and ‘Always You.’
Star Records’ digital tracks of Perkins Twins and The Angelos can be downloaded via iTunes, Amazon.com and MyMusicStore.com.ph.
