The entertainment talents of Filipino is well known and almost a cliche especially around Asia.  Filipino bands play in bars and clubs all over Asia. There are a few well known global names. Lea Solanga is known anywhere and most have noted  Apl de Ap of Black-Eyed Peas is from the Philippines. Long time ago there was Freddie Aguilar. Recently there was Charice Pempengco and Arnel Pineda. I have listened to Arnel Pineda so many times and I can't believe it took Journey and Youtube to discover the guy even though he has been around for literally decades.

But there are many more talents that are to be discovered by the world.  My new favourite is Mocha girls. If you listen to them, you can't help but think of the Pussycat Dolls and style wise they are the same but listen to the voice, the vocal and more importantly the song - its all original and good. Their latest song Take a Sip makes me think of coffee in a whole different way.  I can think of so many big corporate events in KL, Singapore that would go nuts having these girls perform for them..
