“Gone Too Soon” is meant to be an open letter to all our loved ones who have passed.

- “Pagbigyang Muli” by Antenorcruz
Antenorcruz has given a new life to “Pagbigyang Muli,” a song originally performed by Erik Santos.

- “K1N5E” album by Six Part Invention
Six Part Invention is celebrating its 15th year in the business with a new album called “K1N5E.” This anniversary offering features new songs and feels but retains the original pop-rock/ ballad flavor the band is known for.

- “Trophy Wife” by Mara Torres and JC Torio

- “Unang Hakbang” by Lian Kyla
Self-penned by multi-talented artist Lian Kyla herself who also went through a period of reluctance towards her musical career, “Unang Hakbang” is about one’s hesitation to pursue something and the eventual push to make that first step towards achieving a dream.
