SEVEN friendly livewire ladies who are frequent guests at the Solaire Resort and Casino bond together to form an entertainment production outfit. They call their company Lucky 7 Koi Productions, Inc. which is bound to ambitiously produce concerts featuring world class performers like Adele. But for their initial foray, they are mounting a musical extravaganza on October 28, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at The Theater in Solaire. It will headline The Journey’s Arnel Pineda, Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 second placer Michael Pangilinan , the next Big Diva Morissette and X- Factor UK finalist, The 4th Impact. Joining them as front act is the beautiful Mayumi (grand champion, Jap-Pinoy Star Quest of ABS-CBN) and T.O.M.S. Band.

Arnel Pineda is a great rocker. A former vocalist of ljos and Ammo Band in the 80’s, he joined The Journey when the group saw and heard him through a video singing. His voice was strikingly close to that of Steve Perry, legendary front man of The Journey.  Now, Arnel with The Journey has been doing  sold-out shows in the US and other parts of the globe.

Michael Pangilinan, the so-called Ang Bagong Kilabot ng mga Kolehiyala, won the hearts of many when he landed second place in Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 on ABS-CBN. Prior to that, he interpreted entries twice  in ABS-CBN’s Himig Handog Pop Love songs in  2014 and 2016. His song, Pare, Mahal Mo Raw Ako in 2014 garnered  more than 8 millions views  on You Tube and spawned a movie last year.  He just released  his second album under Star Music with Hanggang Kailan as carrier single.

Morissette is undoubtedly The Next Big Diva of the music world. She always wows  her audience  with any song she renders – her whistles are incomparable. After landing  as finalist in the first season of ABS-CBN’s  The Voice, Morissette‘s career soared high, selling out shows here  and abroad and has done  some theme songs for TV dramas like  Moon Of Desire. In 2012  she made her Broadway debut  in the Repertory Philippines production of Disney’s Camp Rock.

Meanwhile, the 4th impact is composed of sisters Mylene, Irene, Almira and Celina Cercado, four powerful voices who do song and dance numbers. When they auditioned  for X- Factor UK, they carried  the name 4th Power but later on changed it to 4th Impact after they wowed the judges led by Simon Cowell with great impact.

KAILAN kaya tatantanan si Mayor Herbert Bautista ng kanyang mga kalaban sa pulitika?  Walang hanggan, for as long as he is in position. Kamakailan lang they tried to involve him in the drug mess, after younger  brother City Councilor Hero Bautista was tested positive sa drugs. Hero voluntarily submitted himself  as a user na naging biktima rin ng drugs,  kaya  todo supporta ang kanyang mga kaibigan, kapamilya  at kaanak  lalo na si Mayor Bistek.
It is  painful on the part of Bistek, dahil naturingan siyang panganay na bale tumatayong ama sa kanyang mga kapatid. Ngayon, isang criminal case  ang isinampa kay Mayor Herbert  ng VACC group na nagsabing naging pabaya ito dahil  sa dami ng drug addicts sa Quezon City. Take note kay Mayor Bistek  nila isinisi  ang kasalanan ng dalawang  QC Chief of Police  ganu’ng ang pamunuan  ng PNP  ang pumili at nagpwesto  sa dalawang (Gen. Tinio at Gen. Pagdilao) at hindi naman si Mayor.
Kainggit-inggit nga siguro ang career ni Mayor Bistek. Imagine, 3 terms as councilor, 3 terms as vice mayor and now, in his third term na as mayor.  Something na gustong sirain ng iba. But for those  who believe in him, they believe that it is hard to put a good man down.
