This week one of Kwento Ni Toto's correspondent was able to attend the album launch of Christian Bautista's First Class. It was held at 55 Events Place during lunch time so expect that Toto wouldn't be very much available during that time.
Anyway, having seen the tracks on the album, I did noticed that he did a lot of collaboration with the other artist. There's one particular name that I haven't heard quite some time. They were really great during their era and hearing them sing again just bring backs some of the good old days, it was the Neocolors.
During the event there were live performance made by Christian Bautista together with other artist. Having 17 good tracks and singing with great artist sure make this album a First Class.
