PEABO Bryson and Jeffrey Osborne, two of the best African-American
balladeers, are due in Manila for a concert with Asia's Songbird Regine
Velasquez on Nov. 10 and 11, 8 p.m., at the Araneta Coliseum.
Entitled "Celebration of Love, A Night of Love Songs, Hits, and Duets," the
concert is another pioneering effort from Viva Concerts, the same producer
of Regine's successful "R2K, The Concert" last summer. Bryson, Osborne, and
Regine are expected to perform their greatest hits as well as knockout duets.

available at all SM Ticket Outlets, Araneta booking office, and Viva
"Celebration of Love" is brought to you by Viva Concerts in cooperation
with Mossimo and Purifil.

" The Indelible Marks of Peabo
Vina Vidal Vicent
"HE's a typhoon that will make me not want to go back home to
\the United States," so declares singer-composer Peabo Bryson
when asked what he thinks about the possible win of Texas
Governor George W. Bush in the US presidential elections.
(As of this writing, the Florida recount is still ongoing.)
Bryson voted via absentee ballot while he and fellow performer
Jeffrey Osborne were here in the Philippines for a two-night
concert at the Araneta Coliseum Friday and Saturday. The
concert was an amazing shows of talent and musicality that,
undoubtedly, only the veterans in the music business can bring.
"I hear Regine is very cute," Bryson says about their special
concert guest, Regine Velasquez. Bryson and Osborne were
introduced to the press upon their arrival in the country a few days
before their performance. "I've also been told that her talent far
exceeds her beauty. She would be more than adequate
representation of what you have here in the Philippines in terms
of talent," he adds.
"I think being recorded by another artist is the single greatest
compliment that an artist can receive," Osborne says of Regine
recording remakes of their songs on her recent album. Regine's
performance at the concert definitely made the foreign artists
stand up and pay attention.

Anwered by RVML 1 & 2's unofficial secretary :
Well, Viva's now making that correction in their promo..
They are probably afraid of being barraged by people's
complaints after the show. I saw an ad of the concert on
today's newspaper (Phil. Star). Peabo Bryson gets top
billing. Then there's a note at the end: "with the special
participation of Ms. REGINE VELASQUEZ," with a
small picture of Regine beside it.
