Debuting only in 2006, she first swept the nation with a string of bossa-style cover songs and has since become a full-fledged concert performer and certified recording artist with 4 best-selling albums to her name: Cafe Bossa (2006, Double Platinum), Sitti Live! (2007, Gold), Sitti In The Mix (2007), and My Bossa Nova (2007).

Joey Albert is a favorite concert performer of many Filipinos and best known for her string of Original Pilipino Music (OPM) hits such as Points of View (with Pops Fernandez), Yakapin Mo Ako, Kumukutikutitap, Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin, I Remember The Boy, Iisa Pa Lamang, Sa Iyo Lamang, Million Miles Away, and most especially her hauntingly beautiful rendition of the Louie Ocampo original and monster hit Tell Me, a certified Gold Record for which she was awarded the prestigious 1985 Cecil Awards' Best Female Recording Artist. Tell Me was such a colossal hit that it topped the charts as a remake by the Side A Band in 1998 and was also recorded by American singer-composer David Pomeranz in 2000. "I Remember The Boy" was a revival hit by Lea Salonga. Many of Joey's songs have been performed countless times and immortalized by popular recording artists of different generations.
David Pomeranz is an American singer, composer, lyricist, and writer for musical theatre, who has endeared himself to Filipinos in the Philippines and all over the world with hit classics including Trying to Get the Feeling Again, The Old Songs, (both recorded by Barry Manilow), King and Queen of Hearts, Got To Believe in Magic (from the 1982 Scott Baio hit movie "Zapped"), Born For You and It's In Everyone Of Us (featured in the Tom Hanks film Big and later at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. He endeared himself more to the Filipinos when he performed and recorded the Joey Albert-Louie Ocampo original love song Tell Me and the Filipino Christmas classic Pasko Na Sinta Ko. In an exciting and varied career spanning a wide range of musical media, David Pomeranz's multi-platinum selling songs, recordings and concert performances have delighted and inspired millions all over the world.
To open the show is dynamic new artist Lara Avengoza, whose debut CD "Listen" was recently launched in a solo concert before a jampacked crowd at the Celebrity Center in Hollywood, California. Her stunning performance earned rave reviews from the local media. And as one writer put it, she has "convinced the music community's talent watchers that she has what it takes to be a major performer, if not a star."
