Pagkatapos ng successful celebration ni Sharon Cuneta ngkanyang 30th anniversary concert last Friday, August 8, sa Araneta Coliseum,tinapos na rin niya ang kanyang first children's album, a first in Philippinemusic industry, sa SonyBMG.
Ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang unangnakaalam ng tungkol sa album sa pamamagitan ng text na ipinadala ng Megastarkagabi, August 14.
Sinabi niya sa PEP ang reason kung bakit siya na-inspire nagumawa ng kauna-unahang local children's album.
"I have two young children whom I love watching as theysing along and dance to their children's CDs," sabi ni Sharon sa text naipinadala niya sa amin. "Also, I learned that in school, they are taughtboth English and Tagalog children's and folk songs.
"So, Kiko [Sen. Francis Pangilinan, her husband] and I, while watching them, just thought it would be great to do this album whilethey are young pa and I can still appreciate this collection. It is also forall my fans who have grown up with me and who are also mommies and daddies now.
"Another important goal for me is to be able to shareour kind of music with Pinoy children all over the world who didn't grow uphere and, therefore, know so little of our very own folk songs, and who will alsohopefully appreciate the numbers in English.
"We are all excited over this, a first in thePhilippine music industry and I am so proud and excited. And I again wish tothank my Sony BMG family for making this dream come true and for gettingexcited over it as well."
