First of all, I'm not even a filipino.....but I love their OPM. Some of the cover rendition are even better than the original artist. These singers are one of the most under rated in the world of music.
My favorite not in particular order:
Jose Mari Chan
Jaya - this lady vocal is up there with the world class soul diva.
Gail Blanco - very overlooked singer. Beautiful beautiful vocal.....
I have to admit that almost 40% of my play list is OPM. And maybe 2% of my song collection belongs to my country singers. Thats how bad it is.....
I visited Manila about 3 (three) times on 2011 and came home with more than 30-40 CD's each time. Too bad havent got a chance to go for the past 2 years already. I missed the new album from these wonderful artists.
My hats to the Filipino singers on their work
PS. I'm not a fan of tagolog songs though. Simply because I dont understand the language
