Manila-based quartet
EMI Philippines

The Philippines have yet to introduce a mainstream band "American" enough to grace the radio waves of the U.S. Filipino's will agree that there is so much unheard and under appreciated talent that Filipino's don't get proper recognition for. There are although, Mixed-Filipino artists that have made a large mainstream name for themselves in America...such as, Enrique Iglesias, Foxy Brown, Cassie, Vanessa Hudgens, Apple de Ap from Black Eyed Peas to name a few. There are no bands that make this list, but I'm hoping Hale will make it's way to a radio station in the near you sometime soon.

Hale does have loads of potential as can be heard with many of their great tracks. Champ is able to show off his mellow laced vocal range and the instrumentals are interesting to listen to. Hale's songs, both sung in English and Tagalog, will definitely enchant your taste for great music.

Time will tell if Hale fans will keep growing, as they continue to create the kind of great music they clearly have the ability to make. Spread the word and give Hale some love.
