UNO Magazine releases The Mocha Girls Special

Are you ready for the 100 pages of Mocha Girls?  If you think that they are just a simple girl group who gets TV time by dancing and singing on variety shows, think again. There is more to the Mocha Girls than just skin deep attraction.

Landing on the cover of UNO, the ultimate guide for men in the Philippines, proves there is more to them than just fleshy beauty.

This pop all-girl group has seen its share of beautiful faces come and go, but one thing that has remained constant is the founder and the person who lent her name to the group, ringleader Mocha Uson.

Mocha says what keeps the group going is the drive to reinvent itself. The current members minus Mocha were not there when Mocha Girls started seven years ago. But Mae, Franz, Seika, Georgina, Jhane with Mocha have found a way to use each other's strengths and complement these to form a cohesive, well-oiled pop group that thrives on reinvention.

Mocha Girls has earned its share of awards for pop hits and with every new song it has released, continues to prove they are not a one-hit girl-group wonder.

In this issue of UNO magazine, readers and Mocha Girls will be treated to a very visual feast of the girls in different titillating poses. And lots of skin bared too.

But what makes this UNO issue even more special is the informative featurettes on each member of the group. It provides a rare glimpse into how the girls think, how they feel about things and situations around them--generally, it's like a one-on-one date with a girl you like.

And the surprise bonus? The issue contains a free calendar inside, featuring, of course, the Mocha Girls.

Go ahead, treat yourself to a dose of Mocha and her girls. It's gonna be well worth it to find out what gets these six ladies going, moving, and rising up.

UNO magazine is available in all leading bookstores and magazine stands nationwide.

The Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez has recently launched a number of special projects for the benefit of the Typhoon Yolanda victims like the auction of her personal items. Aside from this, Universal Records and the Songbird recently released the album Hulog Ka Ng Langit, part of its proceed goes to Philippine Red Cross. 

“Hulog Ka Ng Langi”t album, composed of songs that give inspiration to wives and mothers, has the beautifully-penned Hulog Ka Ng Langit as debut single and title track of the album. The song truly embodies what the album is all about – unconditional love between husbands and wives, and mothers to children.

 “I am a mommy and I thought it’ll be nice to dedicate a whole album for my son. I waited him for so long,” says Regine, but she quickly clarified that, “Hulong Ka Ng Langit is actually just not for him. The album also has a lot of love songs, which you can dedicate to your loved ones.”

Regine recounts that when work has started for the album, the whole team was leaning towards making a baby album. The songbird, however, felt that love songs that have more general messages to be included in the album.

“The challenge really was to have a special, not-so-typical baby album,” shares Regine. “An album that can be appreciated by everyone – kids, parents, lovers, and family.”

With Regine’s gift of amazing vocals, she has given new life to songs like Hele Ni Inay, Someone’s Waiting For You, Happiness, You, God Gave Me You and Just The Way You Are, a duet with husband Ogie Alcasid. The songs included in the album also feature some of the best arrangers, musicians in the country.
Hulog Ka Ng Langit promises to give the public an inspiration to continuously hope for their own happiness with people they truly love and care for.

“I don’t usually say this, pero ang ganda-ganda ng album,” closes Regine. “It is very memorable because, when I was doing the album, I was also going through some stuff. This album is special and memorable because I dedicate this to my son, husband, family, and loved ones.”
