Los Angeles, CA, December 1, 2010 - Mark your calendar as December 5 will prove to be one magical and unforgettable evening of memorable songs from the 80's when three mega-hit musical stars David Pomeranz and Stephen Bishop with Ms. Joey Albert, perform together in a special concert on Sunday (4 pm) on December 5 at the indoor Events Center of Pala Casino Spa & Resort in Pala, CA.

DAVID POMERANZ. During the last 26 years, Pomeranz's love songs have become part of the fabric of Filipino life. His 10-time, platinum album, "Born For You, His Best and More," is the largest-selling international pop album in the Philippines. His best-loved hits include "Got to Believe in Magic" (from the Scott Baio movie "Zapped"), "The Old Songs," "If You Walked Away," "Trying to Get the Feeling," "On This Day," and "Born For You."

STEPHEN BISHOP, a native of San Diego, CA, has become a Filipino superstar following his major hit song, "On and On," which charted at number 11 in the U.S., and "Separate Lives," sung by Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin for the Hollywood movie "White Nights," which was nominated for an Academy Award. In the Dustin Hoffman starrer "Tootsie," he sung and popularized the theme song, "It Might Be You", composed by Dave Grusin / Marilyn & Alan Bergman, which was a Top 40 hit in the U.S., and also a #1 hit on the U.S. adult contemporary chart and won a cinematic Oscar in 1983.

JOEY ALBERT is a Filipino pop and jazz singer who has enjoyed an award-winning solo career for over 25 years that began when one of her first hits, “Tell Me” received a Gold Record Award from the Philippine Association of the Record Industry, which established her meteoric rise as a major Filipino musical artist. "Tell Me" became such a mega-hit that other known musical artists, including David Pomeranz, recorded cover versions of the song. Joey's other hits include "Over and Over," "A Million Miles Away," "I Remember the Boy," "Points of View," and Tagalog favorites "Yakapin Mo Ako," "Iisa Pa Lamang," "Ikaw Lamang Ang Mamahalin."

About Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig. The Pasig River is a 27-kilometer body of water that traverses across Metro Manila and connects Laguna de Bay to Manila Bay. Once a major transport route, source of water and thriving ecosystem, the river is intimately connected to Philippine history. Today, it is one of the most polluted and toxic river systems in the Philippines. Recognizing the need for a broad based effort to clean the Pasig River, the ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc. and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) through the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) signed a memorandum of agreement last March 2008 to co-manage the rehabilitation of the Metro Manila water basin, with initial focus on the Pasig River and its tributaries. This partnership gave birth to Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP), which was formally launched in February 24, 2009.
