Author-singer announces 2018 projects.

US-based author-singer Lourdes "Lou" Duque Baron, also known for her philanthropic works, came over recently and announced her forthcoming projects this year. Like the first time in 2017, she and her assistant Ma. Urduja Osit-Li met the press at the Casino Espanol de Manila.

Under Timeless Entertainment, Inc. of which Lou is CEO/founder, the press conference was attended by Spotify hitmaker Shanti Dope, Philip Ching, who is also known for his rapper name, Aklas, internet sensation Zipporah Beatbox and premiere Beatbox group Microphone Mechanics. Featured was the hit song "Mindset: War On Poverty," the first single from Lou's fifth album "Chameleon." The song sees her collaborating with rap artists Loonie, Lester "Klumcee" Vano, Aklas and Shanti Dope.

"Mindset: War On Poverty" gives a unique insight into rap and sends an inspiring message. According to Lou, the song speaks about how Filipinos need to change the way they think so that they can change their lives.

"You are your thoughts and what your thoughts are will reflect your reality," she said. "No matter what age they are in, people can change their worlds by simply styling their energy and thoughts."

Lou proudly shared the final mix of "Mindset: War On Poverty" done by Haguy Mizrahi, a top music producer who has worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo, Snoop Dogg and Christina Milian.

Lou is excited over a concert project featuring herself alongside popular Pinoy rap artists, including Gloc-9.

By the way, when she was here last January, Lou joined her husband, Dr. Robinson Baron and fellow US-based doctors, on a medical mission in Mindanao.

Bianca Umali touched by birthday surprise

Bianca Umali, who plays Crisan on primetime series "Kambal, Karibal," was touched by the birthday surprise given by her co-stars during her debut last March 2.

The cast and production team came in full force, sang "Happy Birthday" and gave the young star a birthday cake. Funny, but Bianca thought it was just part of a scene they were going to shoot.

There were 18 Roses and her last dance was with love team partner Miguel Tanfelix. Others who danced with her were co-star Jeric Gonzales and director Don Michael Perez.

Ruru Madrid's Instagram post of his shower scene (which showed him topless) on the series "Sherlock Jr." has gone viral. The actor plays the title character with Gabbi Garcia as his leading lady.
