Inside scoop: everybody did great! Vicky Salvador, Pinky's professional voice coach, was so impressed by how fast they all learned their notes...they still got it!
Second picture: That's Vicky sitting in front of Pinky. The two are actually colleagues at OPM (Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit, where PM is past VP and current Treasurer). She voluntarily did the vocal arrangement of our Coming Home 2000's Motown and Donna Summer Medleys. Pinky did an such outstanding job rehearsing the glee clubbers who came out with a monumental performance during homecoming day.
Vicky, thanks a lot for all your help. We could not have done it without you! .
