Last week, Asia's Romantic Balladeer and Asiansation Christian Bautista officially inked his first network contract package with the Kapamilya Network. Present during the contract signing were Channel Head Cory Vidanes, TV Entertainment Head Linggit Tan, Business Unit Head Deo Endrinal, ASAP XV Business Unit Head Joyce Liquicia and Christian's Talent Manager Carlo Orosa. Right after the signing, Ms.Vidanes uttered, "Thank you for your loyalty!"

Christian Bautista began his career seven years ago in ABS-CBN via a reality singing contest search Star In A Million.

It has been a busy 2010 for Christian Bautista. He has been spending more time in Indonesia (where he is a Certified Pop Superstar) doing various gigs, and lately promoting the Indonesian album release of "Romance Revisited : The Love Songs Of Jose Mari Chan". In fact the single "Tetaplah Dihatiku" (Bahasa Version of "Please Be Careful With My Heart), a duet with Bunga Citra Lestari, is NUMBER ONE on Indonesia's Indo-Pop Countdown!

The album will soon be released in Malaysia (where he recorded the duet 'Anugerah Cinta' with highly-revered singer Noryn Aziz) and Singapore (where he recorded a Mandarin/English version of "Please Be Careful With My Heart" with Singaporean pop songstress Kewei). On May 21st, Christian will be in Singapore to promote his Singaporean album release. Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea and Japan will be the next territories to release the album !

Locally, "Romance Revisited : The Love Songs Of Jose Mari Chan" has been certified DOUBLE PLATINUM and has produced three NUMBER ONE hits on MYX Countdowns - "Tell Me Your Name", "Beautiful Girl" and the current single "Please Be Careful With My Heart", his duet with the Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo. Christian just finished shooting his fourth music video, sporting a different look every fans should watch out for!
