After the "tease" that were the viral car wash boy photos, this time Lance Edward now surprises with romantic anthems. These songs are guaranteed to "touch" the collective hearts of all this season of love and beyond.
"Kung Ako Na Lang Sana," a revival of the Bituin Escalante emotional, musical plea serves as Lance's first song. The reason for this choice, he shares, "Most people can relate to the story and meaning of the song. I sang it in a show recently and many opined na ramdam nila, at galing talaga sa puso ko ‘yung pagkanta kaya tumagos sa mga puso nila."
He carries on, "I guess, many of us have experienced that emotional state, yung may mahal kang di niya alam na mahal mo siya and you see her with someone who does not deserve her kaya yung ang wish mo, na kung ako na lang sana."

Peter Safran (upcoming “Aquaman,” “The Conjuring” and “Annabelle” films) serves as the film’s producer.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly?
