Tugtog.com | Christian Bautista to launch Universal Records career with Jose Mari Chan revival album

Already in the record label’s pipeline is a project fit for the young crooner known to many as Asia’s Pop Idol – an album that will revive songs from one of the most prolific singer-songwriters the country has ever known – Mr. Jose Mari Chan. Aside from bringing his interpretation into songs which have been embraced by most Filipinos as classics, the project will also contain duets with Ms. Lani Misalucha, Sarah Geronimo, Regine Velasquez, and the man himself – Mr. Jose Mari Chan.

One of the songs that Christian will be reviving is “Tell Me Your Name”, the song in itself a well-known Jose Mari Chan classic. He is currently shooting the music video for the said song, and actually having a good time working with Thai-born VJ Paula Taylor. The charming beauty is actually taking the Philippine entertainment industry by storm, starring in a full-length feature with veteran comedian Vic Sotto and doing other endorsements, as well as hosting for a couple of variety shows on the side.

Christian says that it is pretty easy to be in admiration of the VJ (as evidenced by her growing number of fans), and that he really had fun working with her in the music video project.

The album is as of present still untitled, but it should be ready to launch very soon. Watch out for this upcoming project from Asia’s Pop Idol himself – Christian Bautista.
