TV5 airs canonization rites of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II

on Sunday, April 27, we will witness another historic religious event for the whole Catholic community. Pope Francis leads the canonization rites of two blessed people, Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. the live feed on TV5 will be airing at 4PM.
canonization, the last step into sainthood of a religious Catholic, declares a deceased person to become saint and should have performed at least two miracles that have to be proved. for the cases of these two Blessed individuals, Pope Francis makes it easier with only 1 miracle each. from the time they are canonized, we can send our venerations and prayers for their blessings.

it would be very amazing that saintly individuals still exist in our time. these two popes have lived in the highs and lows of the world and wished for the world to be a better place like we also wanted. let's live like them and make it so, even if we don't get to sainthood.

On the Playlist: Myk Perez

I missed attending events that launch new artists and playing their songs. Happily attended Myk Perez's blog conference at the MCA Universal office and greeting him personally for his new album "My Acoustic."
After coming runner-up in ABS-CBN's The Voice, MCA signed him for his debut album and featured songs that we love and also his personal favorites.

  • Easy
  • Two Is Better Than One - duet with Sabrina
  • Why
  • Runaway
  • Clarity
  • Honey Under the Moon
  • Fix You (his self-composition)
  • Chasing Pavements
  • Give Me Love
  • Baby I Love Your Way
  • Fix You (Unplugged) - bonus track

His cool voice goes perfectly with all tracks and it's a good company when you're driving or chilling on your room. He gives justice to all the songs in his own renditions and they are very relaxing. My personal favorite is his version of Runaway - being also a The Corrs fan and I could sing-along with his tune.

He is very nice and accommodating to even granted our song requests by playing them with his guitar. A tell-all interview was honestly answered by Myk with all the bloggers present. He played songs that will match his mood.

He gave all his thanks to his The Voice coach Bamboo MaƱalac for what he had become in The Voice. If you're wondering if he had a choice to select from all the other judges, he'd choose Lea for musical experience. He also like to jam with Sarah Geronimo for her dancing skills.

For more info about Myk Perez's album, you can visit MCA universal's Facebook and Twitter accounts.
