Pinoy Idol Gretchen Espina, launches CD on S.O.P.

The Pinoy Idol grand champion Gretchen Espina will launch her debut album, Shining Through on GMA 7‘s S.O.P. today.

Released under Sony Music Entertainment, Shining Through contains 11 tracks written by Ogie Alcasid, Arnenio Mendaros, Totop Suzara, Hannah Romawac and Cecile Azarcon-Inocentes.

The album’s promotional single is Kasalanan Nga Ba?

Other tracks in the album that shows Gretchen‘s pop/R&B mettle are remakes of OPM hit songs One More Try (originally by Kuh Ledesma), So Slow (Freestyle), Suntok Sa Buwan (Session Road), and original songs Pangako Sa‘Yo, Di Man Sabihin and To You (Gretchen’s coronation song on Pinoy Idol).

Four songs in Shining Through were penned by international songwriters. These are the title track by Nina Ossoff and Tanya Leah; I Promise by Ossoff, Steve Skinner and Jimmy Santis; I Know You By Heart by Stephanie Salzman and Matt Senatore; and Never In My Life by Ossoff, Kathy Sommer and Porter Carroll Jr.

Rounding up the album track list are Pangako Sa’Yo by Mendaros and Di Man Sabihin by Jude Gitamondoc.

During the Pinoy Idol competition, Gretchen was never among the finalists with the lowest number of votes. Upon winning, she magnanimously gave a part of her cash prize to the contest’s runners-up.

Gretchen is a member of The University of the Philippines Singing Ambassadors. She was with the singing group when it won first prize in the Inter-Collegiate Singing Contest held in Shantou University, Guangdong, China.

What's with the constant comparison with laarni lozada? Wala namang binanggit sa article about Laarni a. Each has her own style so please stop all this Laarni vs Gretchen stuff.

And why is it that a lot of people just like to put others down?

Anyway, best of luck to Gretchen. I hope a lot of people will support her and buy her album. :)

ang tunay na flop ay si laarni lozada, dahil ang show kung saan siya nanalo ay hindi sikat sa buong mundo, academy is not popular around the world but Idol is very popular around the world.

see link below for more blogs about this woman.

looks like she is being used as collateral for

coming 2010 election by her family who ruled the

province for more than a decade politically(and

own a lot of businesses) but

infra projects like the provincial circuferential roads

remains unfinished and witchhunt of political

opponents remain unabated.

I doubt that the UP Singing Ambassadors went to China for that competition. Yes, Gretchen was a member of the group at that time, but for the competition in China, she competed there as a solo performer. When she got home, a tarpaulin was put up in between FC and AS in UP.. Her whole name was on it. This was before she won in Idol.
