Charmaine Clamor - In Concert Levitt Pavilion MacArthur Park

It's NEVER just another day in Studio G in the Mohn Broadcast Center. I am producing an underwriting spot for Levitt Pavilions featuring singer, Charmaine Clamor. Her reviews claim that she spins a web of magic every time she sings. I can attest that her video, "My Funny Brown Pinay," was no-doubt pretty captivating. She held my interest, as well as the keyboard work on this arrangement which ultimately became a portion of the music bed for this spot. She has a sultry smooth alto voice, with a lot of soul. Clamor pours her heart out on this tune.

 

Through her presence on American radio and incessant touring from Alaska to Florida, Charmaine has been credited with introducing authentic Filipino musical culture to mainstream listeners. To further her lifelong goal of bringing the music of the Philippines to ever larger audiences, Charmaine serves as one of the founding members of JazzPhil-USA, a non-profit organization that promotes jazz artists of Filipino descent in the United States. For five consecutive years, she has lent her notoriety to the popular Filipino-American Jazz Festival, held annually in Hollywood, at the Catalina Bar & Grill Jazz Club, where Charmaine’s appearances with fellow Filipino-American jazz stars inspire standing-room-only crowds.
