JOLINA DOES NOT FIT THE
MOLD, THANK GOD!
Quezon City, June 23, 1999 - Singer-actress Jolina Magdangal looks all of fifteen, with her fresh innocent face and teeny-bopper hairdo propped with ribbons and beads. One believes she's 20 only after looking at all her accomplishments.
Recently, A.S.A.P. paid tribute to Jolina with a Certified Double Platinum Record for the sales of her self-titled album exceeding 80,000 units. Her first carrier single, "Laging Tapat," remains in the list of top radio charts nationwide for over 10 weeks. Her album was also declared by Tower Records as one of the top five sellers within a few days after its launching. The occasion also marked the launching of her second single, "Paper Roses," a '50s revival that has become an instant favorite nationwide.
Last week, Jolina received a Double Platinum Award for the movie soundtrack album "Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang?" with its theme song, "Kapag Ako ay Nagmahal." At the same time, she was also given a Gold Record Award for the "Gimik, Reunion" soundtrack with its theme song, "Mahal Mo Ba Ako," which continues to hog the airwaves.
She has just returned home from a series of shows in Hong Kong, Vigan, Butuan City, Cagayan de Oro, Lanao Del Norte and Cebu, and is scheduled to leave again for Taiwan two weeks from now.
When she returns, Jolina will embark on another series of solo concerts in Kalibo, Tuguegarao and General Santos and in Los Angeles and Hawaii by the last quarter of this year. These will be in between taping of her new soap opera on Channel 2 and shooting of another movie under Star Cinema.
Despite the hectic schedule, she still manages to attend to her Computer Science course (on tutorial basis) at the AMA Computer College and her business, Jolina's Fashion Gallery, which is scheduled to open its sixth store in Cabanatuan City in August.
Through all that, Jolina has remained the same smiling simple girl, unspoiled by scandal. She seems too good to be true. Her success in Philippine show business somehow gives the entertainment industry some hope, that good girls do not have to finish last.
