The Filharmonic

Another group on The Sing-Off is The Filharmonic. They are six Filipino guys and consists of Niko Del Rey, Virgil Joven (VJ) Rosales, Barry Fortgang, Jo Caigoy, Trace Gaynor and Jules Cruz. On the first episode they sang Treasure and I just fell in love with them. One of the reason is because I am Filipino. I am so proud to be their fan and be a true Filharmaniac.

I love that all of them have accepted my friends request on Facebook and that they all have favorited, retweeted or replied to my tweets on Twitter. I love them so much that I have purchased their hoodie.

You should go to YouTube and watch their performances and see for yourself how good they are. They are also going to be on The Sing-Off Tour.



Home Free

For those who don’t know me I love music. I am a fan of both Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. When I heard that there was a season 4 for a show called The Sing-Off and that Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees was hosting again and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men was going to be a judge again I had to watch the show. I’ve never seen the first three seasons but I decided to watch. It is an a capella singing show where teams sing a capella to songs and each episode one team goes home until there are three teams left in the finals and one team becomes the winner and wins $100,000 and a Sony Records recording contract.

On the first episode a group by the name of Home Free sang Cruise by Florida Georgia Line. The group consists of five guys who sing a capella country style. They are Tim Foust, Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist, Adam Rupp and Chris Rupp. They don’t always sing country songs but they do all songs country style. When I heard them sing cruise I instantly became a fan. I then heard Tim Foust singing in bass and he was simply amazing. The second episode they sang Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts and Tim’s bass voice got lower. I didn’t think it was possible to get this low but he did it. This is when I knew I was becoming a fan and was a ‘Home Fry’.

They have released an album on iTunes and Amazon called Crazy Life and are going on The Sing-Off Tour. You should listen to their album. You won’t be disappointed and may even become a fan yourself.



Mikey and Nicholas

I was reading on a blog I found about someone who lost their dog. They person talked about how the dog became sick and was taken to the vet and was put to sleep. She also talks about how she was not there when they put her dog to sleep and how she felt so bad about that. She talks about how she felt afterwards without her dog around.

This got me said and I cried. I started thinking about my dog, Mikey. I remember back in 2009 when my cousin noticed that he had bumps near his pee thing and it was red. She also noticed he was lifting one of his leg when he went for walks. My mom and I took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with having lymphoma cancer. He only lasted about 2 weeks before he had to be put to sleep. I decided to be in the room with him when they put him to sleep and I was able to hold him after it was done. It was the saddest thing I had ever had to do but I know it was the best for him. He couldn’t eat or drink and just refused to get up. He was just too cold. Thinking about that day I know that he is in a better place than being here suffering. It would have made me feel better that he was here but it would have also made me sad seeing him in so much pain.

Thinking about him I just started crying even more. But then I looked at Nicholas, my current dog, lying on my bed and I am just so grateful to have him in my life. Whenever I’m said he always knows what to do to cheer me up and I know he will cheer me up right now. He may never replace Mikey but he always has a special place in my heart. Mikey was the love of my life and if he was still around he will still be the love of my life but since he is no longer with us Nicholas has become the love of my life.
