RICHARD YAP TO LAUNCH FIRST SOLO ALBUM UNDER STAR RECORDS. Richard Yap, considered to be one of ABS-CBN's most bankable leading men today, will soon serenade his fans via the songs in his own musical album. Yap recently signed a contract with Star Records. He is set to launch his debut solo album, which will include English and Tagalog songs and possibly, a Chinese song.
When asked what musical genres he prefers, Yap said that he is into ballads and acoustic music. “Hopefully matanggap ng mga tao ang ambition ko na maging singer,” he enthused. Yap, however, is not new to singing. He was a member of his high school Glee Club. Star Music Group head Roxy Liquigan and Kate Valenzuela (representative of Yap's manager Deo Endrinal) were present at the star's contract signing.
