Kina performed with her favorite guitar for the 2nd time here in Manila. She really had wonderful songs especially the one’s written in Stairwells album namely The World In Front of Me, Strong Enough, Cambridge, In Your Arms, The Goldfish Song, Heart and Mind, Valentines and Message From The Heart. She also performed a song from her latest music video release entitled Without Me and other songs including The One You Say Goodnight To, My Own (a song written for her family) and Taylor Swift’s Safe and Sound.
She greeted her fans “Hello Manila, Kumusta!,” which made them screaming for joy. She pronounced “salamat, sobra” (Thank You very much in Filipino) well after the fans has given her a simple birthday treat, singing her birthday songs with a birthday cake and a birthday card. I shall be grateful to greet her happy birthday here in my blog. Happy birthday Kina, your music is an inspiration.
Kina acknowledged Johnoy Danao’s talent and outstanding performance in fronting her. They’re both simple, endearing and talented singer-songwriters.
Here’s the song she dedicated for this season of calamity, timely for the rainy weather. Mr. Sun, a song included in Stairwells. She was saddened by the current natural occurrences in the Philippines and that she sends her love and sympathy to those who were directly hit by the flood. Video by KinaGrannis.

Johnoy Danao’s Music Redefines Easy Listening
We’ve been longing to watch and listen to Johnoy Danao since we first heard his music in Mo Twister’s podcasts and the Good Times: Acoustic. We didn’t know Johnoy will be performing in Kina Grannis’ In Your Arms World Tour held in Teatrino last 08 Aug 2012 until we’ve seen his album displayed in Teatrino’s front door when we arrived. He opened the stage for Kina Grannis. We had a hard time deciding to cover the event or not because of the bad weather and flood that hit the country recently. He invited the audience to buy his album because the proceeds of it that night will be rewarded and will be given to Red Cross, his simple way of helping the flood victims and the needy as he deeply sympathized with the country’s recent tragedy.
He sang Dapithapon which is his first single in the album of the same title, narrated how he has written the song and telling that it’s a song about moving-on. “Pagbigyan” and “Ikaw at Ako” were mong the original songs he performed. He also sang “Yellow” and “Fix You,” covers from Coldplay and Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars.”
VerJube is a proud owner of Johnoy Danao’s music. Dapithapon has 12 tracks, an album blended with Johnoy’s songwriting prowess, original easy-listening sound and powerhouse collaborations. His passion for music is very notable in his performances and the album itself.
Songs in the album were written by Johnoy Danao and guitarist Sammy Asuncion. Other noteworthy musicians contributing to the album include bassist Louie Talan, drummer Wendell Garcia and percussionist Boy Garovillo, as well as Aia de Leon, Kat Agarrado and Assunta de Rossi, who provide guest vocals. Johnoy Danao’s music is an easy and satisfying serving of folk rock, its main ingredients being warm guitar riffs and cool vocals, as well as honest conversational lyrics over entrancing melodies. His songs, including the singles “Ulan” and “Ikaw At Ako” strongly radiate Filipino sentimentality, without being cheesy or formulaic. The soothing nature of the music goes perfectly with a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a bottle of beer on a rainy mid-afternoon. (courtesy of Dapithapon PR)

About Kina Grannis:
Born and raised in Mission Viejo, CA, Kina Grannis started playing shows at the age of four in front of stuffed animals. Now she plays in front of people. For those who knew Kina as the shy and self-proclaimed-awkward songstress who escaped into the collegiate stairwells to practice and play in privacy, the idea of playing in front in inanimate objects might actually seem fitting. But between those who travel across state and country lines to her sold out live shows and those navigating through her extensive library of YouTube videos, it’s quite clear that Kina is hardly playing for no one.
Since the original release of Stairwells, Kina continued to super-serve her ever-loyal following. She spent much of 2010 on the road, headlining venues across North America, performing sold out shows at Los Angeles’ Troubadour and El Rey Theater and New York City’s Highline Ballroom, spending hours after each and every show signing autographs for, taking pictures with and talking to anyone in attendance. On April 5th, 2011 Kina released a remixed and remastered version of Stairwells, this time in stores and internationally. This new version of Stairwells includes fan-favorites “Valentine” and “Message From Your Heart”. The following week Stairwells once again debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 and #2 on its New Artist/Heatseekers chart and follow-up single “the One You Say Goodnight To” premiered and debuted #2 at MTV.com (behind only Beyonce).
On November 3, Kina released her video for “In Your Arms,” a song from her album Stairwells. A whopping 22 months in the making, the video is a staggering product of creativity, patience and execution. The Greg Jardin-directed stop-motion clip features 288,000 Jelly Belly jellybeans – and 1 Kina Grannis – captured with 1 still camera over 2,460 frames. To call the video a success would be an understatement, as “In Your Arms” has arguably become the artist’s most polarizing achievement, a lofty claim for someone whose first music video found airtime during Super Bowl XLII. Accruing more than 3.5 million YouTube views in just over 3 weeks, “In Your Arms” earned Kina and interview and performance on the aforementioned Ellen Degeneres show, an iTunes Music Video of The Week and features on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Billboard, Mashable, Entertainment Weekly, E! News, CNN’s Showbiz Insider, Inside Edition, The Huffington Post, Yahoo!, and MTV, among dozens of other television, internet and video outlets. Consequently, the track rocketed to #1 on iTunes Singer Songwriter Chart, while Stairwells reached #2 on the same chart and reappeared on Billboard’s New Artist/Heatseekers Chart, ascending as high as #4 overall.
