Event: GMA Teen Star Barbie Forteza releases debut album with the bloggers; to launch album on June 2 at SM North The Block
We love music that expresses our thoughts and emotions. Like most teens today in turbulent times, Barbie Forteza sings her emotions through songs. It was a fun bloggers conference with GMA Teen Star Barbie Forteza last Saturday at the MCA Music Inc. office. Known to many as one of the Philippines' top teen stars whose popularity started with lead roles in GMA Network's "First Time", "Pilyang Kerubin", "Nita Negrita" and recently, "Paroa: Ang Kwento ni Mariposa", Barbie Forteza takes another big leap as a singer launching her first album under MCA Music Inc. with the bloggers last Saturday.
The tween queen did not hesitate to answer any questions posed about her singing skills and shared her excitement to promote her self-titled album. I have seen her appear in top grossing films, "Ang Darling Kong Aswang", "Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote", "Tween Academy: Class of 2012", "The Road", "Ang Panday 2" and "Sossy Problems" and although I have seen her perform in Party Pilipinas, I didn't know that she had more up her sleeves to surprise her fans. Just like most of my students, her perky, bubbly and fun attitude gets more attention when she struts cute dances on the stage singing her original songs and covers from the album in mall shows. I really love "Wala Lang" (written by the famous Jude Gitamondoc) from her album because it also speaks most of my students' hearts having crushes in school on an ordinary day. With the carrier single, "Meron Ba" Barbie personifies the ideal Filipino teen going through same stages of attraction to the opposite sex yet holding back at some moments as a better decision.
I would probably want to hear her songs in teleseryes showing teens falling in love. Other tracks include her version of Jolina Magdangal's "Laging Tapat", bouncy track "Upside Down" (originally from the A-Teens) and "Kapag Tumibok Ang Puso". Barbie Forteza's self-titled album has all tracks with minus one versions so anyone can sing along. I'm so excited to watch her in her newest soap on GMA Network, "Anna Karenina" with Krystal Reyes and Joyce Ching. Aside from her album launch on June 2 at SM North The Block, Barbie will also promote and launch on June 9, 2013 at SM Marikina and June 30, 2013 at Pavilion Mall, Biñan, Laguna (all shows starts at 5pm). Barbie's songs speaks the heart of most girls and it's a fun and fleeting experience singing along her songs. Don't miss getting a copy of Barbie's first album now available at all music stores nationwide.
