Joey Albert is a Filipino pop and jazz singer, musician, lyricist and songwriter. An alumna of St. Theresa’s College in Manila for her primary education and Assumption Convent in San Lorenzo, Makati, for her high school and college, Albert began her professional singing career in 1982, right after winning the Dream Girl Filipina contest in The Party, a television program hosted by Ariel Ureta over Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation – Channel 2 (now ABS-CBN Channel 2). Soon after, Albert became a member of the The New Minstrels-3rd Generation, a popular Philippine show band during the 1970s and the 1980s. As a solo performer, Albert signed up initially with Octo-Arts International (now PolyEast Records) in 1984. Her first single, Gerry Paraiso’s, “Over and Over” (recorded January 1984), enjoyed tremendous airplay in local and national radio stations. Immediately after, OctoArts International released Louie Ocampo and Allan Ayque’s “Tell Me”. The song became a major hit. For "Tell Me", Albert received a Gold Record Award from the Philippine Association of the Recording Industry. Subsequently, Albert received the Best Female Vocalist trophy during the 1985 Cecil Awards, the Philippine Music Industry Awards during the 1980s. "Tell Me" also established Albert as a major Filipino musical artist. The song proved to be very popular with other musical artists as well as generations of Filipino music lovers. Apart from "Over and Over" and "Tell Me", Albert's first album, Joey Albert also produced another hit, Robert More’s “A Million Miles Away”. “Say You’re Mine”, on the other hand, predated the acoustic trend in the Philippines. Albert completed five more albums for OctoArts International: Touch of Love (1984), Expressions (1985), Joey (1986), Maligayang Pasko(1987) and Mixed Emotions (1988). These albums produced many hits, including Louie Ocampo-Freddi Santos collaborations like “Memories” (recorded January 1984), "Points of View” (duet with Pops Fernandez, recorded January 1984) and "Yakapin Mo Ako” (recorded November 1985). Other hits included Jose Mari Chan’s "I Remember the Boy” (recorded November 1985), Louie Ocampo and Jim Millbower’s "Without You" (recorded November 1986), Louie Ocampo and Joey Albert's "Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin" (recorded November 1986), and lot’s more! Albert moved to Dyna products Inc. in 1990. During the 1990 Awit Awards, Albert received twin nominations as Best Female Vocalist of the Year for "Only a Mem'ry" and "Iisa Pa Lamang". She won for "Only a Mem'ry". Meanwhile, "Iisa Pa Lamang" reached platinum status. It also became the theme song of a movie produced by Regal Films, directed by Jose Javier Reyesin 1992. The movie starred Richard Gomez, Maricel Laxa and Dawn Zulueta. Joining Joey Albert is Manuel Romero dubbed as one of "Silicon Valley's Most Influential Latinos," in the Northern California's "People's Choice Awards," Manuel Romero is well on his way to being one of the most compelling and significant musical forces in the new millennium. The people got it right again when People en Español wrote, "Manuel is good news for the music industry." Accustomed to performing live, Manuel often sings for sold-out crowds and venues. Having honed his musical talents in a vast array of musical styles, Manuel continually enthralls audiences with current top forty hits, melodic mariachi music, ballads in both English and Spanish, classical hymns, contemporary Christian songs, and self composed refrains that express his intrinsic talent and exceptional musical passion. Manuel has been an integral part of some of the most musically acclaimed venues to date. In January 2009, Manuel shared the stage with Jon & Madison Cain, Tony Orlando, Air Supply and Billy Bob Thornton at Tony La Russa's ARF concert. Manuel was also featured in the Off-Broadway musical, "Altar Boyz," where he garnered rave reviews for playing the part of sultry Latino swooner, Juan. Continuing with that same vein of musical production, Manuel also gained high acclaim as Richie Valens in the musical, "Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story," where he was described by StageScene LA, as a "recording artist, heartthrob…with mucho sex appeal." Having beaten out the majority of his opponents in NBC's "America's Got Talent," Manuel rose to the top of the pack, as one of the top twenty competitors. Manuel has also headlined at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California with television star, Wayne Brady. Singing the national anthem for numerous high-level sporting events and teams, Manuel always moves audiences with his astounding vocal abilities. Having performed Mexico's National Anthem, he was commended for his exceptional musical talent by former President Fox of Mexico and Mayor Villaraigosa of Los Ángeles, California. Manuel has also sung for Pope John Paul II, during one of the pope's visits to Mexico, and was the lead headliner for the Cathedral Fest "All 4 One" musical production in Northern California. Whether you are here for Joey Albert or for Manuel Romero, this musical tribute to the Gift of Life will be an event you cannot afford to miss!
