“We’re unbelievably excited that Paul will be joining us again and bringing the original line up of A1 together for the very first time in nearly 15 years, as we approach the 20th Anniversary of when we released our 1st single & album Here we Come. There was always an amazing dynamic and energy when the four of us performed together. So what better place to bring that magic back than to the part of the world that has always embraced us with such incredible love and support, South East Asia, more specifically, the Philippines, Indonesia & Singapore. We absolutely cannot wait to see our friends and fans over there once againand bring them a show that will remind us of all the great times we had together.

He said, “This time 20 years ago i was just starting out on an amazing journey that would take me to all four corners of the earth. I was lucky enough to see some amazing places and meet some very kind and wonderful people too. I can’t think of anywhere better to continue this journey once again than to South East Asia and what better company than my old friends Mark, Ben and Christian. I have so many fond memories of my time there and feel so privileged to be able to visit once again. See you all soon.”

 

A1 had their first breakthrough in the UK in 1999 with a collection of hit singles from their debut album. They went on to have international Top 10 and number 1 hits like Caught in The Middle, Same Old Brand New You, their cover of the A-Ha classic Take On Me, Everytime, and Heaven by Your Side.
The band also achieved huge success in the UK, Europe and across Asia, including a Brit Award for ‘Best British Breakthrough Act’ in 2001. A1 has accumulated over 10 million record sales worldwide.
Originally a quartet, A1 enjoyed success from late 90s to early 2000s. The band has formed a bond that they decided to get together seven years after their split and represent Norway for “2010 Eurovision Song Contest” with Don’t Wanna Lose You Again.
In February 2012, A1 performed with Blue and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees in “The Greatest Hits Tour,” which took them to Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia. They loved their two-week stay and charity work here that they held a benefit show in November for the underprivileged kids of Cebu.

Vivo co-sponsors Darren Espanto’s jampacked birthday concert 

Vivo local endorser and one of the biggest artists in the country to date, Darren Espanto wowed fans in a birthday concert held last May 26 at the KIA Theatre. The concert, fittingly entitled Unstoppable, was representative of Darren ad his unwavering talent. Darren, who started singing at only two years old and then entered the music industry at a tender age of 13, is truly unstoppable with concerts, appearances, and album launches left and right. As a proof of his rising celebrity, the Unstoppable concert was graced by guests including budding singer Jayda Avanzado.

Darren was indeed unstoppable during his show at the Kia Theatre on May 26. 

Despite his tender age, Darren performed like a real pro at his concert at Kia Theatre. 
Darren’s Unstoppable concert was co-presented by Vivo, one of the top three smartphone brands in the country today. Apart from Darren’s impressive performances, fans were treated to a special meet-and-greet segment where questions from Twitter were entertained by the young performer.
Darren was officially signed as a Vivo endorser last year and he has since graced several Vivo events such as the brand’s Christmas outreach activity bringing joy to 150 soldiers from Marawi at the Armed Forces of the Philippines hospital, the Vivo V7+ All Screen Experience mall tour at SM Marikina November last year, among others.

Darren made sure that his fans had a good time at his solo concert. 
Darren, a self-confessed K-pop junkie who can both sing and strut a mean dance move to boot, is set to do more Vivo event appearances as the year progresses.

Reef’s Stylish Summer Wear

Reef invites everyone to embrace the fun, freedom and spirit of the beach with ‘Beach Freely’ 

Reef, the industry leader in beach and surf footwear, is launching its new brand mantra that seeks to unite the world around the fun, freedom and spirit of the beach – Beach Freely. 

Beach Freely encourages everyone who steps into the sand or into Reef products to experience the beach in their own way – whether that’s surfing, barbecuing, swimming and enjoying other water sports – and take that fun spirit of the beach with them wherever they go. 

With its pristine white sand beaches and surfing spots hailed around the globe as some of the world’s finest, the Philippines has a vibrant beach-loving and surfing community who were there to witness the launch of the campaign at Alabang Town Center. Featuring games, music and all the other things that makes beach parties memorable, Reef invited the crowd to get into the Breach Freely spirit. 

The event also kicked off the launch of “Local’s Perspective” – the first Philippine Surf Book to be published. Created in collaboration with Reef’s long-time partner, My Life on Board, the book compiled the best surf images together with some of the finest wave chasers of our time, not only in the Philippines, but also across Asia – immortalizing those moments and telling the story of the history and culture of the locals who shaped the Asian surfing scene.

The book features images from the best surf photographers in Asia and Oceana like Giang Wardani from Batu Karas in West Java Indonesia, Bali based National Geographic photographer Tommy Schultz, Mentawai Island based surf photographer from Japan Hatsumi Ishibashi, World Longboard Championship Chaplain and photographer Andrew Carruthers from Australia and Siagrao based surf photographer Oliver Bayer. 

It also highlights work from the Philippines’ own local surf photographers like Red Bull Ilume finalists and Sony World Photography National Award winner Gaps Sabuero, surf photographer from Samar Abdel Elecho, La Union based surfer and photographer Jeferson Ganuelas, Baler Based surf photographer JP Sarmiento and My Life on Board founder Mike Eijansantos. 

Mike was inspired to create this book because as he said, “Everything is digital already. So I want to create a book that immortalize the beauty of the images.”

Lovers of Reef can look forward to feeling this new, invigorated spirit in Reef’s latest products. 

Perfect for surfers who are feeling the heat this summer, Reef’s perforated boadshorts feature light breathable polyester fabric created from woven soluble yarn and have perforated holes allow for water and air to freely pass through the fabric, speeding up the dry time and enhancing breathability. Complete with a zipper closure back pocket, key loop and non-velcro fly make this perfect for surf or other high intensity water sport. 

For the trendy beach-goer, Reef has created a slimmer, sleeker version of the ever-popular Fanning sandal. The Fanning Low has the same all-day comfort, arch support, and thirst quenching technology as the Fanning; but with slimmer straps and a lower side profile for a more youthful and fun vibe. 

The Fanning Low has a super soft yet supportive EVA footbed, an airbag under the heel for even more support, and a rubber outsole for top of the line traction and durability – and it even has a bottle opener to ensure you are always able to quench your thirst! The new Fanning Low will be available in 6 six fun colors, right in time for one’s next beach adventure. 

 

The new mantra also lends itself to the Reef’s updated impact strategy to help keep beaches clean for everyone to enjoy. Environmental and social impact has been a priority for Reef since the company’s founding in 1984 and has continued to grow throughout the years through the global Reef WeHeart program.

Reef Marketing Supervisor Marnelli Gaerlan said that Reef aims to “…promote responsible travel by always seeing to it the [we] Reef always have the planet in mind.” She also encourages everyone to always plan beach trips with a conscience by enjoying the beauty of the ocean without leaving a trace. 

Here in the Philippines, Reef continued to promote responsible travel and environmental conservation in Free the Sea Movement 2, a fun-filled three day event and coastal clean-up in Baler done in partnership with WWF Philippines. 

Reef pledges to support efforts to preserve and restore beaches so that everyone has the opportunity to Beach Freely.
