After going viral on TikTok and subsequently charting on Spotify Global Viral 50 Chart where it peaked at No. 17, Singapore-based singer-songwriter Sezairi is currently on the rise with the recent success of his single “ It’s You .” A rousing ballad that showcases the journey of putting one’s fears to rest when it comes to loving someone, “It’s You” is part of Sezairi’s recently released EP, Undertones . “I had a lot of things in mind when writing this song but I guess the underlying theme is love,” the chart-topping artist opens up about the inspiration behind the track. “It’s like going on this crazy journey just searching for ‘the one’ and then having a sudden realization, and disbelief even, that you already know who you were looking for and that they were always there and will always be there for you no matter what. It’s also a sort of ode, a thank you to that special someone in your life.” The song is steadily climbing on Spotify Philippines’ Top 100 charts, ranking at No.

Coriolano to debut at the CCP

As part of it's 32nd Season, Tanghalang Pilipino comes up with the staging of Coriolano,one of Shakespeare's play that is considered his second longest work after Hamlet.It is a translation done by playwright Guelan Varela-Luarca and is adapted from Shakespeare's Coriolanus.

The play is a take on a complex hero that is Coriolano and tackles about the division between the Patricians and the Democrats of the Society.Coriolano is a scheming character in the play and theater viewers will be in for a treat as this is the first time that this Shakespearean masterpiece will have it's staging in the Philippines as no other Theater Company has ever done it before. Is he a hero or is he the villain in the story? I guess we all have to watch the play to find out.
Directed by Carlos Siguion Reyna and topbilled by Tanghalang Pilipino's very own Marco Viaña, this is definitely one worth seeing.Viaña is joined by Brian Sy (Aufidio), Ms. Sherry Lara and Frances Makil-Ignancio (alternatiing as Volumnia) Jonathan Tadioan (Menenio) JV Ibesate (Sicinio), Doray Dayao (Bruto) and the Tanghalang Pilipino Theater's Company.

The artistic Team is headed by Ohn David (Set), Bonsai Cielo (Costumes) TJ Ramos (Sounds) Dennis Marasigan (lights) and Brian Sy and Remus Villanueva (choreography).
