RYAN ORLANDA is best known as Ryan Pepper in the music community in Toronto, Canada. Ryan comes from a family of what he called “music lovers.” He grew up honing his talent as a singer, dancer and then became a businessman.

As Ryan grew up with utmost music influence, he started singing at the age of 11 when he was in 5th grade. He joined dance and glee clubs in his elementary years and through college, sharpening his inborn talent.

Ryan Orlanda is an avant-garde member of theatre and arts and had been given small roles on TV. His manly voice, which made him suitable on the radio had ample opportunities given to do voice over on radio commercials and news. Ryan graduated BS Public Administration at Pamantasang Maynila and is now on his 11th year in his career and as a businessman. He devout himself as a singer, a host and event specialist.

Ryan whose passion in music drove him to relinquished his regular job and focus on his career and is now known to have handled multifarious engagements like weddings, birthdays, debuts and corporate events. Ryan, a Christian, is motivated by his passion and dedication and has been successful at that, is now managing his own music business “the R Strings Ensemble” with continuous offers of singing engagements.

On the other hand, another budding young music artist who is slowly making a name for herself is Fienness Mendoza who is slated to collaborate a duet with Ryan Orlanda this coming Sunday, May 8th at Pinoy Dreams Radio Show with Host Judith Gonzales- Pinoy Radio Toronto. It also coincided with Mother’s Day. They are collaborating on a powerful love song popularized by Martin Nievera and Regine Velasquez.

It will be streamed live from 4-5 P.M. I think I want to stay home to hear them sing and watch them via live stream. But unknown to many…I am Fienness Mendoza’s driver on most occasions. Isn’t she special? But then who would dispute that this duet on Sunday will be remarkable? Ryan Orlanda sharing his voice with Fienness Mendoza. Awesome!

Again, thanks to Judith Gonzales for believing in Fienness Mendoza as a worthy soulful young Diva coming out in  style all the time. Her remarkable voice should be taken seriously as she prepares to put into recording her first original music with Roy Hamilton III. This multi-platinum producer and mentor is eager on Fienness Mendoza’s first single out.

I don’t mind driving the Eaglet this Sunday because I guess staying home is not an option. Listen to it and watch it on the live stream which will be shared on my FB Timeline.
