Opening Prayer for Meetings

Father in heaven, we’re gathered here to discuss important issues of our company.

Grant that everyone present here today, would contribute whatever they can.

Enlighten our minds that we can resolve our problems the way you would want us to.

Make us realize that we’re here not only for ourselves but for other people as well.

Thank you for all the blessing and love you’ve accorded your humble servants.

May we leave this room more united, cooperative and glad with each other’s company.

May our company serve as your instrument to spread peace and love.

All these we ask through Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Arnel Pineda, Journey’s Frontman, Spearheads a New Project, Asian Music Camp to Find Asia’s New Singing Star

MANILA, Philippines – Arnel Pineda, Journey’s frontman, has spearheaded his recent project, Asian Music Camp, to find Asia’s new singing star.

Arnel Pineda with Rene Walter of Sanre Entertainment held a press conference last October 25, 2014 at the Shangri-la Garden Room to talk about this exciting project that will provide unknown talented singers a ticket to stardom.

Arnel Pineda with Journey

On his Twitter account, the international rock star tweeted:

“Your journey to stardom begins here.”

Arnel Pineda has a special place in his heart for singers who have talent but don’t have the connection, because he was in the same predicament for more than 20 years until the American rock band, Journey, discovered him from YouTube. His incredible story from rags to riches and fame is phenomenal that it is considered the greatest rock band story of all times.

Pineda’s humility in spite of his fame and fortune is also refreshing and admirable. Most people would change amidst the accolade they receive, but not Arnel; he remained humble, unassuming and down to earth; loyal to his fans and to his family. Journey just concluded their successful Live Tour this year, 2014, but fans are again ready for another tour in 2015.

Interested parties can start submitting their videos online starting January 1, 2014 to March 311, 2015 at the Asian Music Camp website. There will be four rounds of the competition: the qualifying round, semi-final round, Face off round/TV season premiere and the final round/TV broadcast round.

If you belong to a band and think you can sing, this is the break you’ve been waiting for. You can join the Asian Music Camp competition. Who knows? You might be the next Arnel Pineda of the new generation.

Know more about the basic requirements and rules of the contest from the Asian Music Camp website here.

Gangnam 1970, previously titled “Gangnam Blues”, is the next big film of “Boys Over Flowers” popular actor Lee Min Ho. Lee Min Ho also starred in the recently concluded Korean series, “The Heirs”. His popularity has grown all over Asia, including the Philippines.

Lee Min Ho has visited the Philippines several times and has grown a huge fan base in the country.

With the inclusion of a few lines of “Anak” in the “Gangnam 1970” trailer, his Pinoy fans are apparently thrilled and happy. Min Ho played a more mature role in this film, which is totally different from his previous “boy next door roles.”

Prayer before a Program

Dear God, we’re all gathered here before you for this activity.

Thank you for all the generous blessings you have granted us.

May you bless anew this activity so that the goals set by the organizers will be met.

May you grant wisdom and knowledge to all participants that through this undertaking they can serve you more through other people.

May everyone realize that all these would not be possible without your blessings.

As we leave after this activity, may we continue to spread love and peace to all people.

All these we ask in your mighty name.

Amen.
