OPM President Ogie Alcasid is undeniably one of the most prolific singer-songwriter of his generation, having written hits like Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw, Pangarap Ko Ang Ibigin Ka, Kailangan Kita, Ikaw Lamang, Pangako, among others. Acknowledging this, Universal Records is releasing the most ambitious project of Ogie: The Songwriter & The Hitmakers which gathers the biggest music acts in the country to perform compositions of Ogie.
“I feel so honored to have been given a project as big as this,” says Ogie. “I am in awe of all the talents involved here.”
The Songwriter & The Hitmakers features Ogie’s songs recorded by Gary Valenciano, Regine Velasquez, Martin Nievera, Piolo Pascual, Christian Bautista, Sarah Geronimo, Arnel Pineda, Noel Cabangon, Richard Poon, Jed Madela, Kuh Ledesma, Rachelle Ann Go, Kyla, JayR and Jaya. New compositions and some of Ogie’s biggest hits are included in the album.
The album also includes a stirring duet of Ogie and Regine. The project is indeed very timely as Ogie is all set to celebrate his 25th anniversary in show business next year.
