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

    Again, thanks sa recognition…..

    Because of some of my little achievements, I have few songs being included in the forthcoming albums; 3 songs signed by an Artist (British National), 1 song
    by a Fil-swedish artist and 3 songs music publishing contract in the Philippines and an upcoming religious inspirational album here in Ireland (at least may little Manoling Francisco dito hehehe).

    Everything is on the right track. Watch out for the release of the CD album Compilation of the 12 finalists of the First US Peace SOngwriting contest which will be launched this year organised by NYS Orchestra Music Director David Eaton
