Culture Philippines of Ontario and Josie de Leon School of Performing Arts invite you to reminisce to Marco Sison’s “Always” concert. All proceeds for this event will be donated to Kalayaan Cultural Community Centre. It will be held on Friday, November 15, 2013 at Kalayaan Cultural Community Centre, 5225 Orbitor Road, Unit 3, Mississauga, Ontario.
Marco Sison started his singing career after his triumph in a singing segment of Student Canteen, a noontime variety show. Being one of the classic balladeers to have captured the true vocal essence of OPM in the ‘90s, Sison was responsible for the songs My Love Will See You Through, Si Aida, Si Lorna, O Si Fe, I’ll Face Tomorrow, Always and Make Believe.
In 1991, the Philippine independent Universal Records released Best of Marco Sison. The album consists entirely of romantic, easy-listening music, a style of music quite popular in the Philippines, My Love Will See You Through, Si Aida, Si Lorna, O Si Fe. In 1992, Sison released After All These Years. In 1999, Sison released Memories, his first album for local independent Viva Music Group. One of the international hits covered by Sison here is Crazy. The album also includes Someone That I Used To Love and Kung Maibabalik Ko Lang.
May Iba Ka Na Ba? is the first single lifted from Sison’s comeback album, Hindi Ko Akalain, released by Star Records. The songs in the album perfectly captured that distinct OPM feel as proven in the tracks Hindi Ko Akalain, Baby, Puwede Ba?, Right Beside You, Try My Number and the lead single May Iba Ka Na Ba?
Aside from his hit-making albums, Sison also joined popular singers Rico J. Puno, Rey Valera and Nonoy Zuniga, collectively known as the Hitmakers. Sison and the group had a successful series of shows abroad, most of them in US cities such as Reno, Houston and Las Vegas. Sison emerges on the release of his love ballad collection titled Isang Pagkakataon, distributed by PolyEast Records. The album has been preceded by other newly written songs by Vehnee Saturno like Selos, Kahit Na Minsan Pa, Sa Iisang Puso Mo and Kwento. It also features Sabik Na Puso, a song that was penned by Sison.
“Isang Pagkakataon” is now playing on local radios in the Philippines. Marco Sison is coming to Canada to promote this new album. As Marco Sison says, ‘’Filipinos are sentimental people so they always go for love songs. No matter the genre, we always look for the ‘love’ angle in the lyrics so what I’m trying to is offer them new ones but from a more personal perspective.’’
