Asia's Nightingale Lani Misalucha met with the press for lunch today, January 11, at Maxims to give an update on her career. She plans to expand her name in mainstream entertainment abroad by signing a record deal with a big American record label.
"Hindi ko pa masabi yung buong detalye. Basta pag andiyan na, malalaman n'yo na lang," says Lani.
In a conversation with Noli Misalucha, her husband and manager, he says, "Lani was seen by a famous producer that signified interest to sign her up for an album that will make her more mainstream.
"Initially it will be a single. Ganun na ngayon. While she is promoting that single, simultaneously binubuo na niya yung album.
Noli adds, "This also means Lani will have to take a leave in the Vegas Circuit, to give way to nationwide promotions. Like, say tinawag siya ni Oprah or Good Morning America, kelangan ready siya, at may oras para mag-guest."
Lani's contract in Vegas is similar to that of a Broadway actor in New York. They can be locked in for six months to a year with a day off a week, doing seven shows a week.
Since Lani is a green card holder, she is no longer considered a foreign singer in America.
When she is in New York or California, she is referred to as "The Siren Of The Strip."
Lani was voted Best Performer in 2005 by the Las Vegas Revue Journal.
TV SHOW IN VEGAS. Currently, Lani is also starting to shoot her own weekly TV show on cable called It's Vegas with Lani Misalucha, where she opens with a musical number then interviews different guests like singers, dancers, comedians, chefs, and the like.
All guests get to sing or perform their craft in the show, solo or with Lani. At the tail end of the show, Lani usually closes with another song.
