Here’s a delightful treat to all students this graduation season, as Nikki Gil glows and presents a repackaged version of her self-titled debut album with EMI Philippines featuring GLOWING INSIDE, the song from the Vaseline shampoo commercial as a tribute to the youth and their moms behind them.
Heart-warming song GLOWING INSIDE is composed by Louie Ocampo and written by Edith Gallardo. The song a parent and their teens can and should enjoy together. And Nikki– one of the young talents who have proven much to her audience both on TV and live stage performances– is the kind of musical role model our Filipino family needs – one who lets the essence of her soul shine through with a fun and positive message through a song.
A fine lady as young as Nikki, singing this song had already strike a heartbeat to her audience– young and old. Repackaged Nikki Gil album also includes a very sentimental and sad (but in a good way) music video of GLOWING INDSIDE to have more to draw from.
Nikki released her first and self-titled album under EMI Philippines in with Sakayan ng Jeep as her first single. SAKAYAN NG JEEP is a Lani Misalucha-original from the 90’s and composed by Bodgie Dasig. Second single came with IF I KEEP MY HEART OUT OF SIGHT, which is also a remake of one of James Taylor swoony ballads.
GLOWING INSIDE is now playing on radios and currently enjoying amassive airplay, and likely be one of the most requested songs in radios nowadays. As to Nikki’s follow-up to her two insistent tunes of love lyrics from her self-titled album Nikki Gil, third single is Forever is Not As Long As It Used To Be. Piano accompaniment is a must for great love songs, and it’s perfect for this song. It’s slow, with a lilting rhythm, thoughtful lyrics and warm dulcet tones. It’s not complex, but the message of dreamy romance is unmistakable.
Nikki’s love for music began when she was very young and to name more of her other heart-warming hits from her self-titled album are LET’S WAIT A WHILE which is a cover of Janet Jackson hit love song; TWO WEEKS, penned by Nikki’s label mate and Hale’s guitarist Roll Martinez; HANDANG MAGHINTAY, penned by Noel Cabangon; MOVIN’; a cover of the song PANANAGUTAN; 1000 PRAYERS; Nikki’s version of BABY NOW THAT I FOUND YOU; PAANO, religious and a love song for God called ANSWER TO MY PRAYER.
