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.

CCP Closes Women's Month through A Soft Launch Of The Special Issue Of Vlf Anthology By Women Playwrights

THE Cultural Center of the Philippines, through its Intertextual Division, will have a soft launch of the special anthology of the Virgin Lab Festival fully staged plays on March 31, 2021, 2pm at the CCP and CCP Intertextual Division Facebook Pages as part of the Center’s celebration of National Women’s Month.

Entitled “ELEMENTAL: MGA BABAENG MANDUDULA AT MGA ELEMENTO NG DRAMA,” the said e-book will be formally launched online likewise during this year’s Virgin Labfest which will be held from June 14 to July 6, 2021.  The e-book can be downloaded for free.

The plays selected for this volume were chosen from the works by women that were staged from various editions of the Virgin Labfest, the annual theater festival that provides a venue for the emerging and established Filipino playwrights to present their unpublished, unstaged, untested and untried works to the theater-going public.  The works by women were selected to serve as samples to help define and explain the elements of a play.  The e-book can also be considered as a manual in writing for theater.

Edited by veteran playwright Ms. Layeta Bucoy, the special anthology features the works of the following playwrights: Clarissa Estuar (Ang Mamanugangin Ni Rez); Debbie Ann Tan (Fate's Line, Mga Babaeng Toobright, Dragon's Breath); Dominique La Victoria (Chipline); Eliza Victoria (Marte, Ang Bahay sa Gitna ng Kawalan); Herlyn Alegre (Bahay Bahayan, Tagu-Taguan and Huling-Huli); Isa Borlaza (Sa Package Counter); Joyce Ann Icayan (Last Ten Minutes); Lani Montreal (Looking for Darna and Sister-Out-Law), Layeta Bucoy (Ang Anak ni Gloria); Liza Magtoto (Paigan and Anonymous);  Sheilfa Alojamiento (Boy-Gel ang Gelpren ni Mommy), and Mixkaela Villalon (High Stakes) among others.
