KHALEEJ TIMES (SOUL SIREN TO TAKE CITY BY STORM) - AUGUST 4, 2004


Soul Siren to take city by storm
By a staff reporter

4 August 2004
DUBAI - Despite her seemingly never-ending stream of gigs, TV appearances and shows, Nina, dubbed as the Philippines' 'Soul Siren', has not disappointed her fans in Dubai as she has willingly accepted an invitation to perform at the Rocky's Cafe of the Regent Palace Hotel.

Fans of the newest 'Whistling Diva' who missed her awesome performance last night (August 3), can still catch her at the same venue tonight.

Nina, whose magnetic smile, simple and beautiful looks and humble disposition are truly endearing, is expected to sing six to eight songs from her album to an 300-strong audience tonight. Organised by the Dubai-based Universal Events and Promotions FZ LLC, the show begins at 9pm. Nina will be backed by Clipperz, a nine-piece band.

Favourite cuts in her debut album 'Heaven' are 'Heaven', '2nd Floor', the Tagalog love song 'Kung Ibibigay', and revivals such as 'Foolish Heart', 'Loving You' and smash hit 'Jealous'.

The two-night show in Dubai is her second performance abroad, after having performed to record audiences in Japan. This month, Nina will be having a back-to-back concert with titled 'El Nino El Nina' Nyoy Volante at the Music Museum on August 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28.

Nina, who addressed a Press conference yesterday, confirmed she shares a special rapport onstage with Nyoy Volante. "He's a good friend of mine," said the Soul Siren, with a smile. Nina, however, also plays beautiful music together Jimmy Bondoc. "Jimmy sings with such deep emotion. He sings from his heart, and would usually close his eyes as he renders a song," she said.

Nina, Nyoy and Jimmy are three acoustic singers who usually perform together and with their countless gigs together, it's almost like they are inseparable triplets.

Nina's second album, 'Nina Smile', under Warner Music Philippines, is already showing signs of becoming yet another big hit, with her first single off the album, 'Make You Mine' doing very well on local radio stations and music video channels.

NINA SOARS HIGH ONCE AGAIN WITH SOPHOMORE ALBUM, SMILE (TITIKPILIPINO.COM) - FEBRUARY 2, 2004

NINA SOARS HIGH ONCE AGAIN
WITH SOPHOMORE ALBUM, SMILE

The illlustrious Soul Siren has once again proven that she is worth the hype. With the launch of her sophomore album, Smile last January 30, 2004 at the lush Greenbelt 3 Park, Nina performed an overdose of soul-idified songs that got the groove of the Friday night hawks going.

Smile is Nina's second album after her proverbial leap of faith contract signing with Warner Music Philippines. After sending a demo tape, Nina immediately had the people at Warner listening, earning her a contract even before WMP executives actually saw her in person. This feat proves just how amazing her voice is, and now she continues to impress with Smile.

Prior to the release of Smile, some people thought that Nina would be a fad, someone who couldn't raise the bar and fade into obscurity. However, the Soul Siren remained true to her reputation proving the doubters wrong and came up with a collection of hits that has shown just how much Nina has grown.

Smile contains some of Nina's best work to date, but this time she adds a few enhancements that display her versatility and expanding vocal repertoire. The carrier single, Make You Mine, is the best example.

Currently a chart favorite in radio stations and local music video channels, Make You Mine pits Nina's sweet-singing voice with an urban jam and invigorating beat - a combination that has caught the ears of music fans who demand only the best from today's artists.


Nina is no stranger to revivals, but often the problem lies in capturing the appeal of the original while creating a unique identity of the artist. The Soul Siren pulls it off flawlessly and makes it look like a walk in the park with her renditions of classics such as
Madonna's Shoo-Bee-Doo and Baron Barbers' I'll Always Stay in Love This Way.

Taking one step further to artistic completeness, Nina makes her songwriting debut in Smile with the song Can't Say I Love You. Rounding up the power-packed ensemble are future hits A Girl Can Dream, Still Gonna Be and Sayang Naman, and other killer tracks from her 12-track album.

The Smile album launch was presented by Warner Music Philippines and sponsored by MTV Ink, Magic 89.9, Music One, Red Box Karaoke, and Greenbelt Ayala Center. Smile is available in CDs and cassettes from Warner Music Philippines

NEWSFLASH: FLY HIGH NINA! (MANILA BULLETIN) - JANUARY 17, 2004


Fly High Nina!

By LEONARDO Q. BELEN
January 17, 2004, 8:00am

Upcoming recording artist Nina will be conferred the title of “Ambassador of Goodwill” by Center for Pop Music Philippines during a concert entitled “Fly High Nina” on Jan. 27, 2004 at 6 p.m. at the Baluarte Plaza Luneta de Sta. Isabel, Intramuros, Manila.

Nina will be the main star of the concert, and her brother as guest artist.

Center for Pop Music Philippines founder and president Butch Albarracin said that Nina has been chosen as the school’s Ambassador for Goodwill because of her consistent determination and focus to pursue her singing career, interesting career history, interest in social and community projects, and for being a role model among the youth.

Nina finished an entire course on singing in the Center for Pop Music Philippines.

"I feel so very much honored," Nina said upon being informed of her being chosen for the one-year title.

The title does not give her much financial rewards, but instead, it calls for a lot of sacrifice because she will be sharing her talent to a number of charitable organizations – for free.

"It gives much more meaning to my life," Nina said. "It’s not all money that we have to work for, but we should gladly share our talents with the less fortunate."

Nina has been singing since she was 12 years old, joined a band later and then decided to go solo.

Nina has also already come up with two albums, "Heaven," her debut album, and the second, "Smile."

Both albums are doing well in the market. "Heaven" is described as "a groovy... and breakthrough album, boasting of an international-sounding music and voice, sung by a young Filipina talent. "

Among the favorite cuts in the album are "Heaven," "2nd Floor," "Kung Ibibigay," and revivals such as "Foolish Heart" and "Loving You." It’s other cut, "Jealous," reaped rave reviews, heavy airplay and earned a Gold Record award.

As a singer, Nina is also described with a Mariah Carey-esque voice range – reaching the highest notes with extreme control and with a sentimental timbre –which amazes gig fanatics. She renders her songs with emotion and soul – thus making her the "soul siren."

Her second album, "Smile" carries "Make You Mine" which is creating waves in the airlane.

For those who want to see her, visit Bagaberde every Monday, or watch her on ASAP Mania.

The concert "Fly High Nina" will usher in the 20th anniversary celebration of the Center for Pop Music Philippines. The concert, according to Butch Albarracin, "is a collective wish of the Center for Pop students for Nina to achieve more and to continue inspiring young singing hopefuls who wish to follow her footsteps.

"Fligh High Nina" is free to the public.

Selected Center’s students will pay tribute to Nina with songs associated with her. Nina will give a musical response by singing her past hits and new songs from her new album, "Smile."

Former ambassadors of goodwill of the Center were Sarah Balabagan (Sony Records) in 1999, Nerissa (Ivory Records), 2001.

Aside from Nina, the Center’s other successful graduates are Sarah Geronimo, Jose Santana, Dessa, Roselle Nava, Geneva Cruz, Rufa Mae Quinto, five Miss Saigons, Rox, singing comedian Patrician Ismael, Erik Santos and many others.

"I look at my future as a bright one," Nina said optimistically. "I will keep on singing..."
