Nina and Diane Warren - A Perfect Combination

By Warner Music Philippines
A slew of multi-platinum albums, a multitude of awards and recognition from her peers - all of this and more sum Nina's career throughout the years. As much as one might think this is already enough to rest one's laurels on, the Soul Siren herself admits, she still has much to offer and hopes that fans will continue supporting her in the coming decades.


"I still have much to fulfill... greater dreams, bigger aspirations....I owe it to my fans. They had been supportive all these times... showering me with love and unbridled affection... I am eternally grateful. It is because of them that I will continue doing my best, as a singer, as an artist...it is because of them that I continue dreaming and reaching for the stars." This is exactly how the singer feels about her new opus, "Nina Sings The Hits Of Diane Warren" under Warner Music Philippines.

"This album is a gift to my fans. I feel so honored and privileged to team up with Ms. Diane Warren in this project," says Nina. Her love for the gifted songwriter was first made palpable when she recorded, "I Don't Want To Be Your Friend," in 2004 for the compilation Diane Warren Presents: Love Songs. The song stayed at the number one spot for two months. Another Warren composition, "I Love You Goodbye" released as the fourth and final single of the Nina Live! Album, also made it to the higher echelon of the local charts.


"Fans had been requesting that I release a full album of Diane Warren songs for as long as I could remember... so here it is, from me to you, with love." The long wait is over with the release of an all Diane Warren hits interpreted by the Soul Siren.


For Nina, the latest outing would be her most memorable work because not all singers are given by a world famous songwriter like Diane Warren to record their compositions in one album.

The tracklist includes:
"I Don't Want To Miss A Thing," (Aerosmith),

"Because You Loved Me," (Celine Dion) ,

"Un-Break My Heart (Tom Braxton),

"I Turn To You" (Christina Aguilera),

"How Do I Live" (Trisha Yearwood),

"There You'll Be (Faith Hill),

"Blue Eyes Blue" (Eric Clapton),

"I Could Not Ask For More" (Edwin McCain),

"When I See You Smile" (Bad English),

"I'll never get over you (getting over Me)" (Expose),

"Have You Ever" (Brandy),

"How can We be lovers" (Michael Bolton),

"Saving forever for You" (Shanice),

"Love Will Lead You Back," (Taylor Dane),

& "I don't wanna be your friend".

Recording Diane Warren's roster of hits in one CD is something that Nina always dreamt of. Nina has nothing but praises for Diane Warren whose every composition she has memorized by heart. The feeling is mutual for Diane Warren who believes that Nina's incomparable artistry would do justice to her musical
masterpieces. Grab your copy now of this Super Special Limited Edition Double Disc Package that includes a minus one of all 15 songs.

***the album turned GOLD after a week of it's release!


Nina was awarded Gold record for her latest album in ASAP "08 (ABS CBN).

READING TO CHILDREN ABOUT MOTHER EARTH
















SEDP modules on alternative energy and fuels featured in PDI Earth Day Read Along

Students leading the advocacy on using alternative fuels to reduce air pollution and siblings learning about alternative energy on their grandparents' farm were two of the feature stories read in the Philippine Daily Inquirer's special Read Along Session in celebration of Earth Month at the Robinsons Galleria last April 15, 2008.

Ms. Jocson wrote the story as a way for her to teach alternative energy and fuels to grade 1 students of Iloilo. The stories are part of her output in SEDP and DepEd Division of Iloilo City's activity to develop teaching modules on alternative energy and fuels.

SEDP's three short environmental plays, "Ecodefenders vs. Global Warming", "Hari ng Kalsada" and "Fuels for Life," were also staged after the Read Along Sessions.

MANILA, Philippines—Stories about nature and conserving Mother Earth took center stage at Friday’s special Inquirer Read-Along session in celebration of Earth Month.

Featured readers were United States Embassy Charge d’Affaires Paul Jones, sibling singers Nina and King, and Alitaptap storyteller Rich Rodriguez.

More than 60 children attended the session held in the cinema lobby of Robinsons Galleria in Quezon City. They listened to stories about alternative sources of energy and ways of caring for nature. Three environmental plays were staged.

Jones, who came with his wife Catherine and their two children Aleksandra and Hale, read “Felix and Fely,” a story of two siblings who learn about alternative energy sources, like the sun and wind, when they visit their grandparents’ farm.

“I think this is a terrific program because it promotes reading and it promotes protecting the environment,” said Jones. “When I open the newspaper and see the stories about this reading program, it reminds me to read to my children that day and I think it probably does that to a lot of parents.”

Nina and King, on the other hand, presented “Pupils Power,” a story about students who learn about the ill effects of vehicular pollution and later on prompt their parents to advocate the use of biofuels.

King noted that the children’s warm reception and active participation pushed his sister to go on despite feeling ill.

“We were happy about the children because they really listened,” Nina added. “Whenever we asked questions, they were all raising their hands energetically.”

Teaching modules

Both “Felix and Fely” and “Pupils Power” were written by Dymphna Leizel Jocson, head teacher at the Quintin Salas Elementary School in Jaro, Iloilo, as part of teaching modules on alternative energy developed for Grade 1 students of the Department of Education Division of Iloilo City.

The teaching modules were a product of the Sustainable Energy Module Development activity of the Sustainable Energy Development Program.

“When I first heard that we were supposed to do a lesson plan integrating the concepts of renewable energy and biofuels, I thought it would be really difficult because it would include a lot of technical terms,” said Jocson, who flew all the way from Iloilo to attend yesterday’s Read-Along.

“I believe children could be instrumental in educating their parents. We know they have their own convincing powers,” Jocson added.
