Asia's Romantic Balladeer, Christian Bautista releases his first album under Universal Records (and his fifth overall) entitled "Romance Revisited: The Love Songs Of Jose Mari Chan". Produced by Platinum Producer Ito Rapadas, the 19-track concept album contains Christian's rendition of songs popularized by OPM luminary and Double Diamond Artist Jose Mari Chan. The album includes

Christian's collaboration with OPM's biggest names - Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez, Asia's Nightingale Lani Misalucha, Double Diamond Artist Jose Mari Chan and Philippines' Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo! The carrier single "Tell Me Your Name" is currently one of the most requested songs on FM stations and its music video featuring the Thai beauty-actress Paula Taylor has just debuted on MYX, the #1 music channel in the country! Christian is also the MYX Celebrity VJ for the month of October.

Christian's recording career was established early on with the release of the balladeer's phenomenal first single "The Way You Look At Me," culled from his Quadruple Platinum, self-titled debut album, which was later released in Indonesia (where it was certified Quadruple Platinum) and other Asian countries. He has also done original music videos, his own television special aired over RCTI, the country’s largest television network and various brand endorsements all over Indonesia - making Christian a certified Asian Pop Idol!

Plans in releasing Christian’s newest album "Romance Revisited: The Love Songs Of Jose Mari Chan" in Asia is already in the pipeline. Right after its release in the Philippines, Indonesia’s biggest record label PT Aquarius Records (which also released Jose Mari Chan's "Constant Change" in the '80s) will release Christian's latest album. For the Indonesian release, Christian has recorded a duet entitled “Ngiti” (translated in Bahasa) with Indonesian female recording star Noryn Aziz. Album release in Malaysia and other Asian countries will follow suit.

Christian launched his new album in noontime musical variety show ASAP ’09 last October 4, Sunday. He will also be in SM Fairview (October 11), SM North Edsa SKYDOME (November 6) and SM Baguio (November 20) to promote his latest album.

The beautifully-packaged album comes with a 2010 Christian Bautista Photo Calendar. Limited Edition "Romance Revisited: The Love Songs of Jose Mari Chan" CD (with Free Minus One CD) is available EXCLUSIVELY in all Odyssey outlets.
