her amazing voice, impeccable talent and dedication to excellence,
International Recording Artist Sahara, is a force to be reckoned
with. Based in Las Vegas, USA, she is poised to be OPM’s newest
The singer, renowned locally as the American Anthem Diva and the official singer for minor league NASCAR events, is full of admiration to OPM artists like Jaya, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Kyla, and Charice.
expressed excitement to launch her solo career out of her lifelong
love of OPM and Filipino culture saying, “I want to be among the
greatest singers in the world singing the most beautiful music in the
world – for me that’s the Philippines. And OPM, of course. But more
so, the quality of the vocalists and musicians. Even in Las Vegas
many of the best musicians are Filipinos, and I’m blessed to be
close to them and work with them. I also consider Filipina vocalist
to be some of the best in the world, and I want to challenge myself
and be among them.”
cover of “Dahil Ba Sa Kanya” officially marked her debut as
a solo artist. It’s a phenomenal take on the Jaya hit original.
Sahara’s unique, incredible delivery is soulful and resonates with
many. You ache along with her voice as she delivers the lines “Dahil
nga ba sa kanya / Nakalimutan mo aking sinta / Ang sabi mo noon
hanggang wakas / Tayong dal’wa ay magsasama / Dahil nga ba sa kanya /
Naririto ako’t nag-iisa / Pag-ibig mo sa akin ba’y naglaho na.”
said learning “Dahil Ba Sa Kanya” made her truly fall in
love with OPM and Tagalog. “The language is such an integral
part of the music. So much meaning and emotion in so few words. It’s
shared, “I was watching a travel video on YouTube, and the song
was playing in the background as the host was walking down the
street. (So) I used Shazam to find the song and artist. When I heard
the song, it’s hard to describe… I just felt something deep
inside my heart. A pain, a longing. Something truly lost. Not to
mention Jaya’s soulful rendition. And when I read the translation,
I understood why I felt that way. A song that can communicate its
story without understanding the words is a true piece of art, and I
knew one day I would sing it – not just to myself – but to the
added, “So when we met the composer of ‘Dahil Ba Sa Kanya` –
Freddie Saturno – over Zoom to ask his permission to cover it, he
told us the song was based on a true story. And I loved it even
how she felt about the reception of her fans to her cover, Sahara
admitted she was amazed, shocked, and mostly blessed.
as a world-class, classically trained singer, Sahara said singing
Tagalog (OPM) songs are very challenging compared to other foreign
(language) songs. “Definitely harder. There are several sounds
that aren’t common in other languages. Especially the “ng”
sound in words like ‘Tanging'”.
while she can belt out expertly in English, Spanish, French, Italian
and German, Sahara loves Tagalog for the unique way it expresses
emotion and meaning.
I love singing in Tagalog? It’s the passion. So much passion. A
single word can express so much joy or sorrow, and as an emotional
artist it’s very fulfilling. To be honest, the passion in OPM is
missing in so much of modern Western music. The world could learn
something from OPM. I can’t imagine singing anything else.”
is currently working on a soft album of original OPM with some of the
best Filipino composers and arrangers.
people we’re working with have been the biggest names in OPM for
decades. My co-producer – Dennis Quila – is an OPM icon. I can tell
you we have a duet in the works, as well several original Tagalog
compositions. And I can also tell you we have a special surprise
coming for Christmas.”
what other OPM songs she enjoys listening/singing to, Sahara
exclaimed she can’t get enough of “Sayang na Sayang” by
Aegis. “I listen to it at least once a day and I always get
Sahara describes her musical style as very eclectic and very passionate. “I love so many different genres of music, and the cultures they come from, it’s very difficult for me to limit myself to just one and say, ‘I’m this kind of artist.’ But OPM changed that.”
an artist, I always focus on the emotions of the chords, melody and
lyrics. Even when I sing in a foreign language, I make sure I
understand not just the words, but also the idioms of the culture
they come from.”
passionate singer is also part of NeonDuet, a musical duo which
consists of Michael Todd “m.t.” Glazier. They recently released a
dance single “(We Can Be) As One”.
song) It’s no secret there’s a lot of division in American
society right now, and other societies in the world. And the song was
made during the first three months of the pandemic when people were
feeling more and more alienated from one another,” Sahara
shared. “Our song is a message from the heart that we can’t
really succeed unless we work together. That can be a family, a
community, or a whole country.”
whether there’s a huge difference from being part of a duo to being a
solo artist, Sahara claimed, “It’s not too different being a
solo artist because the other half of NeonDuet (my husband Michael),
is also my co-producer and manager. Being a duet probably helped us
learn to better work together to make my solo career possible. And of
course we had to merge our influences. Being a solo artist is new and
exciting, although I’m not used to being the center of attention.”
asked what else she wants to achieve in her music career, Sahara
proudly beamed, “to inspire love, hope and belief as best I can.
Music gave me those things when I needed them the most. If I can
bring those emotions to just a few people – or inspire someone who
has talent to never give up – it will be a dream come true.”
Sahara, she’s just happy to have everyone supporting her music
journey since the beginning. “Salamat! Thank you! We have some
fans who have followed for years even when we were only posting
karaoke videos, and their support has meant everything. And then
there were only a handful of people who heard me sing in Tagalog live
for the first time, and it was their reaction that gave me the
confidence and courage to record it. They changed my life. More so,
we feel like the fans we have – and I hope my future fans – believe
in the power of music. No matter what language or genre it is.”
debut single “Dahil Ba Sa Kanya” is now available on Spotify,
YouTube Music, Apple Music, and other digital streaming platforms

Naku! Na-boljak tayo ng mga pumasa sa board exam. Wala daw tayo alam kundi ang magmahal.
Hindi daw dapat kinukumpara ang Frequency ng Telecoms sa Bus sa EDSA. Kaya daw magkaiba ang nagiissue ng franchise (LTRFB at DICT) ay dahil magkaiba daw sila ng sitwasyon. Tama nga naman siguro.
Pero dahil makulit ako kagaya ng manliligaw niyong panget nung Highschool, Try natin ulit.
The game is changing. Yung dati; 1 Frequency – 1 Channel. Parang nung panahon ng Kastila na naka-kalesa sila. Isang kalesa, hanggang dalawa lang ang sakay, nakasama na dun yung mga pinamalengke mo sa Quiapo. Ganun yung lola ko dati. Trip niya mamalengke sa Quiapo ng mga hipon after niya magsimba. At kahit may Owner-Type jeep na kami, sumasakay pa rin siya sa kalesa. Suki kasi siya nun.
Ngayon, pwede na daw yung 1 Frequency – Multiple Channels. Kaya pala mahiwagang blackbox ang gamit. Na-mumultiply niya pala ang income ng big network kahit na single franchise lang sila. Yan ang tularan natin – innovative.
Mabalik tayo sa biyahen Quiapo. Nagkaroon na ng Quiapo – Pasig Jeep na dumadaan sa amin. Mas marami na silang sakay kahit iisa lang ang driver. Meron Shaman Kings at Shampoo-an. Nag-iba na rin ang technology nila. Mas malupit na yung horsepower nila, di kagaya ng kalesa natin na single horse lang.
So eto si kuya hinete ng kalesa. May Franchise siya ng pagpapatakbo ng kalesa from Quiapo to Sta. Mesa which is valid for 25 years. Dahil masyado siyang mahusay at nakabili siya ng Tren na mas malupit pa sa Bus at Jeep, pero ang gusto niya ay ma-renew lang ang Franchise niya na pangkalesa. I think unfair yun para dun sa mga nagkakalesa na nakapag-upgrade lang into Angkas at Joyride.
So ano ang point?
Hindi natin ma-renew yung 25 year old Franchise dahil the game has changed.
Sino dapat kumilos?
Aba, itanong niyo dun sa Committee leader ng mga Franchise sa Congress. Kaso, wala ata siya Quarantine Pass dahil Senior na siya. At trip niya pa rin sumakay sa kalesa.
Babalik na ako sa panonood ng Fliptop. Angal pa kayo, baka magbago pa analogy ko.
Mainit talaga sa akin tong topic na to. Galit lang talaga ako sa mga LOYAL DAW, pero may iba naman pala.
Mabilis na disclaimer; wala po ako paki kung galit si Tatay Digs sa ABS-CBN, gusto ko lang ma-call out ang practice na to at kung paano tayo nagkakaproblema.
Pansinin nyo muna ang sample na pictures na nakita ko nung nag-Google ako about KAMBAL BUS.
Wala naman problema para sa commuters. Mas ok nga sa kanila dahil pag mas maraming bus, mas maraming pwede masakyan. Pag na-late ka sa oras ng alis ng bus, andyan kaagad yung mga kasunod na bus dahil may mga kakambal ang buses nila.
Pero akala mo lang yun.
Ang nagiging problema sa commuters, dumodoble o tumitriple ang dami ng bus sa EDSA. Alam ng gobyerno at ng MMDA ang capacity ng EDSA. Iilan lang ang bus na pwede dumaan dyan. Nasa isip ng MMDA e sakto lang ang mga bilang ng bus – kasi nga – sakto lang ang bilang ng mga NAGBABAYAD NG FRANCHISE.
E ang kaso, gahaman ang mga negosyante.
Naglalabas sila ng mga KAMBAL BUS, para onti lang ang franchise, pero doble ang kita.
Ganun din ang argumento ko sa kaso ng Franchise ng Big Networks natin. Isang franchise lang meron ang ABS-CBN Network, pero andami ng channels nila. Bilangin mo na lang sa TV Plus mo, parang nasa sampu ata ang nawalang channel dahil nag-expire ang nag-iisa nilang franchise.
Hindi lusot ang GMA Network dito. Kanina lang, nahuli ko sila, yung broadcast nila sa GMA7 at sa GNTV nila, iisa. Sayang ang frequency kung duplicate naman ang content. Parang pinirata mo lang ang Fliptop.
Traffic sa EDSA, oo, isa na dun e yung sobrang daming bus na kumaKAMBAL. Kung umaangal ka dahil sa trapik ang EDSA, pero hindi ka umaangal dahil sa multiple frequency practice ng ABS-CBN, baka kailangan mo muna manood ng Fliptop.
Kilala ang Cavite sa pagiging traffic na lugar nito. Years daw kasi bago ka makauwi, lalo nat dadaan ka pa daw ng PITX. Yan ang unang pumapasok sa isip ng tao pag Cavite. Ang lingid sa kaalaman ng mga tao, … Continue reading →
