Last night I met in person Asia’s acoustic sweetheart SABRINA ORIAL or simply SABRINA who releases her follow-up single from her highly successful “I Love Acoustic 4” album—her version of the hit “Moves Like Jagger”.
Sabrina is only 22 years old . She graduated Cum Laudefrom UP Los Banos with a degree in Communication Arts.Sabrina is an achiever and an ideal role model for kids of this generation. She doesn't smoke and she always exercise. She was discovered at the tender age of 14 and was asked to come back after two years by Vicor who released her first album as a Bossa singer entitled "Sabrina".
She came from a family of musicians. Her Father and brother are guitar experts/composer. Her older sister is a soprano. Her mother is an alto and a magna cum laude. No wonder Sabrina got not only her looks but also her intelligence. Their family usually spent weekends singing and playing the guitar together. She described her family as a happy musical family.
Her “I Love Acoustic 4” turned GOLD in Indonesia in November of 2011 and this month, it is certified double PLATINUM. This makes Sabrina one of the few Filipino singers to have multi-platinum success in Indonesia. “I Love Acoustic 4” was also released in Thailand and soon in Singapore and Malaysia.
Sabrina has the following albums under her belt
“I Love Acoustic”,
“I Love Acoustic Too”
“I Love Acoustic 3”
“I Love Acoustic 4”
They were multi-platinum success in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand- the only Filipino female singer to break in successfully in the South East Asian market.
Her huge following abroad is now translating locally as the album is still in retail charts where it debuted at #1 at Astroplus and #9 at Odyssey upon its first week of release. Because of her success abroad, she became a recipient of the “International Achievement Award” at the recent Awit Awards where she also took home the I-Gateway Mobile Philippines, Inc.’s Most Downloaded Artist for 2010.
The album also includes the tracks “Price Tag,” “Who Says”, “Edge of Glory”, “On The Floor”, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”, “California King Bed”, “Hold It Against Me”, “Rolling In The Deep”, “The Lazy Song”, “Back To December”, “That Should Be Me”, “Marry Me”, “Rocketeer”, “Just The Way You Are” featuring Indonesian singer Calvin Jeremy and “Lucky” featuring multi-platinum crooner Richard Poon.
Catch Sabrina as she serenades SM Pasig on February 17 (Friday) at 4pm. Those who will buy her album “I Love Acoustic 4” will get to have their CDs autographed by Sabrina herself after the show.
