Perhaps, you know the man who is just a few points behind Erik Santos and few inches away from Sheryn Regis when they are still sizing up themselves on-stage few year ago. He’s no other than the slick and slim in a crowned jeweled voice – Christian Bautista. His new escutcheon badge “Asiansation” tells more of his indelible footprints in the entertainment industry, though Mister Webster won’t tell you what.

If you have been vigilant of Christian’s plight in the entertainment jungle, you’ll know how he made it to where he is now – rich and famous, comely, indomitable – and wiser.

The event was under the batons of Pinoy Song Magazine, Orange Entertainment Magazine (online) and spearheaded by Universal Records, Christian’s recording label as well. 

Of course, bloggers who kept shooting their spotlight on him expect to get the willies every time. With sheer humor and factual exegesis of his present achievements, bloggers present on the gathering of the pride boost few facial muscles with good guffaws and admiration.     

The conference is of course stirred by Christian’s brand new album “Outbound.” A hefty package of his foreign performances and collaborations which includes US, Korea, Japan, Indonesia and Singapore.

The Conference swoops the well-lighted room of the UR with the bloggers’ inquisition of Christian’s status from head to toe. Expect then to receive answers from him more than you’ve ever asked for.

To seal the deal, Christian made his perfect stance, holding firm his wireless provision and firing his vocal ammunition, he sang one of his singles in the album Outbound. Everyone in there just don’t want to miss a thing. So lenses from DSLRs to a camera phone capture the moment for free.
