Dear Brothers,

I just received an email from Mr. David Eaton – Music Director of the New York Symphony Orchestra and a planned awards night in the next annual event featuring the winning entries  performing in one stage together with the New York Symphony Orchestra Director and Founder of Peace Music Community that I won as a 4th placer in the US First international Peace  Songwriting Contest with my song entry “GIVE PEACE A CHANCE” sung by my wife Judie. Pangalawa na po ito na award na natanggap ko internationally with the same song.

The Grand Prize winner is a well known award winning songriter who already worked with Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and some famous singers.

To be lined up with these people is already a great achievement especially when we excel in peace advocacy. Meron din isang pinoy na nakapasok sa top 12, he is from Davao city. A CD compilation will be launched within this year

Kung matuloy ang plans, baka magkita kami ni Darbs dun sa US… sana.. hahahaha

You can join the Peace Music Community http://peacemusiccommunity.ning.com and register yourself. Sa mga di pa nakarinig sa song ko, please visit my website http://www.showcaseyourmusic.com/nathanielcabanero and your comments are all welcome.
