I had one of the best nights early this month when I attended the album launch of my friend Zion Aquino who surprised me with his vocal prowess. It was a celebration of wonderful music with THE Trina Belamide whom I admire the most from her timeless compositions and at the same time an appreciation of a new album with full of heart and soul that I totally forgot about that 2-hour traffic on my way to the venue.
It was a jampacked 12 Monkeys when I arrived and it took me minutes to find my musically inclined blogger friends as well. I was lucky to be able to arrive just in time for the number with The Company and Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez who also sang one of my favorites, YOU MADE ME STRONGER.
As I have mentioned, the highlight of the night was to see Zion performed tracks from his album GRATEFUL SOUL. Trina Belamide made sure that these lists from Zion’s album will be our favorite and they didn’t dissapoint.
One of my favorites is Defenseless but the song FOR LOVE, caught me offguard. Here I took a video of Zion singing the song FOR LOVE.
Zion is a proof of a wonderful talent. His music will bring you somewhere as if you are in for a treat. He sings from the heart and transforms onstage. I am in awe. His Grateful Soul album is a gift of hardwork. As we are entering the times where everyone can produce and release an album, this one is definitely a must have. It is for me is the best contemporary OPM album of 2016 and I dare everyone to get your own copy. It has been my driving playlist for days now.
Here are the tracks from his ALBUM
Really over You
Ever My Only Love
Give You My Heart and Soul
For Love (What People Would Do) – SUPER FAVORITE!!!
