Merry Christmas

Merry merry Christmas everyone and a happy happy birthday Jesus! I hope everyone had a blast (or will have a blast) in spending this holiday season with your loved ones...I was not able to draw or even edit a picture of Libera for a Christmas greeting (which I was actually planning to do) this year but I still do want to extend the greetings to everyone who have been supporting this blog.. Thank you all.. :)

In other news, here's Libera sending their own Christmas greeting to us! :)



I got an email from a fellow fan, Dorcas asking me to promote a tumble log she and her friend made that is dedicated to Libera. I think tumblr is a good way in promoting Libera as well as sharing pictures, videos, "official" news and other stuff so if you do have a tumblr account be sure to follow them, they follow back as well. Oh btw, even if you don't have tumblr you can still check their posts. :)

So what are you waiting for FOLLOW (or visit) them now! :)

Anyhoo, if you have questions, drop a message on their Ask Us Anything tab (at the upper part of the page) or send them an EMAIL. :)


A Glimpse of Tom Cully

(Thank you so much Yorkie for this! :))

Yeah, that's Tom right there. I was so happy to see him again! hahahaha 

He's going to release an LP in 3months time with 6 new songs. So support him guys and be sure to check more updates directly from him through his MYSPACE account. I'm so excited for that. I really hope we could buy it. :)

On other news, Tom posted this on his myspace: "i have no contact with anyone called "Norman", and he is not helping me financially to produce this LP, its a BIG bunch of lies.... :("

Encore: Libera (solos: Stefan Leadbeater and Jakob De Menezes-Wood with Ralph Skan)

Unfortunately, James Threadgill wasn't around. Flynn Marks and Alfie Smart weren't at the concert as well so there are speculations that they might have left the choir already (or at least left the touring choir). But for Tom Cully fans, it has been confirmed that Tom was there on both concert probably as a technician or something. There were no meet and greets at the concert though a short "photo session" was held after the Bristol concert. CD's and DVD's were also sold at the venue.

Libera also posted some photos from the concert on their BLOG but I also posted it here just in case. ;)

Ps. Thank you so much to Patrick and Bullehynka from the Libera Passion and to Dani, Danie and Yorkie of Libera Dreams. :)

Triple Treat

Libera has been really great and released the videos featured in their new DVD. I'm really thankful for it as I can't but the DVD yet. I still don't know when will it be released in the Philippines and the shipment fee just cost too much so yeah, I still don't own one. Boo me! hahaha 

Anyhoo, although  the videos were released and I'm sure one way or another the bonus tracks will be up on Youtube in a matter of time, I strongly suggest that we should buy their DVDs and support them. Enjoy the videos!

(Be sure not to miss the ending part. It's epic! hahaha)

Thank You! :)

This post is dedicate to Lexi and her mom Lauren.

I'm sorry it took me this long before I could dedicate a post for you two. Thank you so much for the package that you sent me. I really didn't expect to get some goodies from a concert that I never attended.

After a week of delay, the post office here finally delivered the note that I could claim the package already. Unfortunately I was out of town that time and when I finally arrived home I had lots of things to do. I had to wait 2 more weeks until my schedule cleared a little before I could go to the post office to claim the package. It was actually weird because the note that was sent to me had something written "subject to inspection" but when I came there, they just looked for my identifacation card, had me sign something then gave the package. They didn't even bother to inspect it. hahahah Anyhoo, I was so excited to open it that I didn't bother to care for the other people looking at me in the Jeepney as I was opening it with a huge smile on my face.hahaha When I arrived home, I boast the package to my whole family (who all are a huge Libera fans as well). I told them to handle it with care. hahaha Now, it's carefully placed on my study table along with my other Libera stuffs. (I'm planning to dedicate a space just for my Libera collection. Hopefully I could do that by summer.)

Anyhoo, I didn't expect to get more the Atlanta Program. Also, the first steps booklet helped me a lot. I was really down and stressed during those times and reading it somehow made me find my way back again. :)

Again, thank you so much!




Hello everyone!

Sorry for not being able to update this blog for a really long time. After the updates regarding the US Tour, I haven’t been online much and I’ve been really really busy with school works. As some of you know, I’m currently doing my thesis this year. I’ve managed to pass the first part but I have to work really hard for the next part since it requires not only physical strength but also mental and emotional. (Yes, thesis can be so depressing.) I clearly didn’t have a social life for the past 2-months, and it will continue until February next year, I think..

Enough with the rants. I just want to give heads up to everyone that I might not be able to update this blog regularly but I’ll try to update at least once every two weeks (if there’s new stuffs about Libera). I asked my sister to update this for me but it seems that she’s busy with her school stuffs as well.

Ps. I’m soooo excited for the Deluxe edition of Peace. I hope it would be released in the Philippines soooooon.


Lullabye Music Video

Credit: OfficialLibera's Youtube

I'm sure all of you have seen this, but I'm gonna put it here anyway. When I saw this video, I had mixed feelings with it. I was shocked to see Josh do the solo part, yet very happy to know it was him. (Josh, you grew up into a fine young man. You were very handsome in this video even though you have ashes on your nose.) Also, I understand the whole concept of the video but I was hoping to see all of them (well specially my biases, Sam and Jakob). Anyhoo, besides that, the whole video left a very odd feeling in me even until now when I've watched over 10 times already. It's sad because we all know that it somehow relates to history where in young kids where drafted in military but the whole black outfit of the lady plus the ghostly shots really gave me goosebumps. Though I must admit that I cried buckets while watching this video and I bet that there are others like me as well. 

Anyhoo, I did a screencap of the video. Feel free to use it. (It was kind of hard because all of Josh's shots were really good so it was hard to decide what to upload. hahaha)

 (Sleeping Carlos and Cassius are soo adorable)

 (I bet Luke and Matthew looks good on tie. And I hope we can see a clear shot of Ben in this one.)

 (Sooo saaaad.)

On side note, there was some sort of debate (well kind of) about mystery boys in the video and here's my two cents in it:

The eyes and the nose gave it away. :)

The second picture was quite tricky. It could be Mini James but he wasn't wearing any helmet on his close up shot which clearly the boy on the right does. I'm just sure that it's one of the younger ones, standing on the bed, wearing a helmet and military jacket over nightgown as shown at the left picture. 


Libera has been part of the "The Nutcracker" with the song "Walts of the Snowflakes" along side with Simon Rattle and Berlin Orchestra.

You can view the album details HERE

Libera also did an interview promoting The Nutcracker. Kavana's really talkative as usual while Ben's unusually silent. And look how Ralph tries to insert a green joke. hahaha

On side note, you can listen to Waltz of the Snowflakes HERE and also watch the ballet sequence on their song HERE.

Libera Fans in Singapore

So basically I received a messaged from Pameline regarding the group she made and I decided to help out.

This is a call for all fans of Libera in Singapore to join the Facebook Group she had made to show the support in Libera and hopefully through that, Libera could visit Singapore as well.

The Group's Facebook Description says:

Libera in Singapore is a non-profit group created to share the liberating music of the choir, Libera! 
Also, a way to raise awareness of their music in Singapore and to hopefully bring them in for their next concert!

A silent petition to bring Libera to Singapore for their next concert! We hope to get as many fans as possible to express our hope to invite Libera over to our sunny island. 

Please support Libera and buy their original CDs, don't resort to piracy! 
Libera in Singapore is not related to Libera and all music and images belong to them.

So what are you waiting for...JOIN NOW! :)
