This past weekend during the Pacquiao and Ugás fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, J Rey Soul brought down the house with a beautiful and classic rendition of the Philippine National Anthem. She mentioned in an Instagram post that this moment was a dream her Father always had for her, and this past weekend she finally fulfilled it.
Her voice was not the only thing that stunned the crowd; her beautifully crafted dress did as well. But who was behind it all?
Fashion Designer Francis Libiran masterfully crafted J Rey Soul’s dress. The dress was a modern multi-layered Philippine Terno. The piece was accentuated with intricate embroidery, pleated tulle, and Swarovski crystals. Francis also placed his signature art deco patterns for the sleeves and bodice.
J Rey Soul and Manny Pacquiao first met in 2019 at the LA Clippers Filipino Heritage Night when she performed alongside the Black Eyed Peas, Liane V., Jules Aurora, Jasmine V., and DJ Icy Ice.

Jo Koy is the latest celebrity to stop by the Los Angeles boxing gym to catch the G.O.A.T. train. Naturally, he became part of the crew and took over Pac Man’s livestream on the spot. Jo Koy also chatted with the ringside trainers and longtime coach, Freddie Roach. Coach Freddie even asked Jo Koy if Lil’ Jo was funny too. As Jo Koy was playing hype man during the workout, he calls out for Manny’s training shirt saying, “Manny I want that shirt!” Just as Jo Koy was excited seeing Pac Man, spectators were stoked to see Jo Koy. They even deemed him the “Manny Pacquiao of comedy.” Either way, the respect between Jo Koy and Manny Pacquiao is mutual. Two G.O.A.T.S. in their own craft representing the Philippines.
