With fall already here, we’re missing the summer vibes. Over the summer, a bunch of Star Magic artists came over to the U.S. for the 30th anniversary show, Beyond the Stars and although we got a lot of behind-the-scenes content, but the artists also took their own. We see Donny Pangilinan enjoy some free time golfing in San Francisco, Maris Racal enjoy halo-halo in Queens, and Alexa Ilacad watch Moulin Rouge on Broadway!
It looks like they all had a blast with each other and just enjoy the time to hang out outside of work. Who said you couldn’t work hard and play even harder. The Star Magic crew not only put smiles on the many Filipinos who watched the show, but also experienced what it was like to be a Filipino abroad even just for a little bit.
Check out what they all got up to and let us know if you’d visited these places!

The Pistahan Parade and Festival in San Francisco recently brought Filipinos together in the Bay Area. It also celebrated the next generation of Filipino artists globally as they paraded together on the MYX Float. Those who made an appearance include: Edward Barber, Kiana V, AC Bonifacio, Kyle Echarri, Gigi De Lana, Ashley Mehta, Russ Coson, Janine Berdin, SAB, Lian Kyla, Larren Wong, and Angela Ken. Check out the photos from the parade!
See them hold up the Philippines’ flag and share smiles all around. This is also the first time where some of the US-based artists met artists from the Philippines. It goes to show how music is a universal language that touches all parts of the world.
To get in the spirit of the 29th Annual Pishtahan, everyone had a great time on the MYX Float while fans were able to catch their favorite artists in-person or see them perform live. Adding to the excitement, MYX Global had a booth where we gave away a custom BumpBoxx prize!

ABOUT STAR MAGIC
Star Magic has been the home and training ground for the biggest and brightest names in Philippine entertainment for three decades. It has provided workshops in acting, dance, art, script appreciation, styling, voice production, as well as physical fitness training in order to develop disciplined, well-rounded and world-class performers. Star Magic artists are also encouraged to use their influence for good by supporting ABS-CBN Foundation’s advocacies .
P-Pop worlds are colliding once again, and as we mentioned in the recent BINI x SB19 collab, we love to see it! This time P-Pop sibling groups BINI and BGYO teamed up with MNL48 to put on an exciting performance for Star Magic’s “Beyond the Stars Trade Event.”
The groups started off hitting the stage individually, with MNL48 performing their catchy 5th single, High Tension, released at the top of 2020. Then BINI came in with retro neon vibes performing their hit Golden Arrow. Next, BGYO took the stage with their track When I’m With You, which music video just surpassed the 1 million view mark on YouTube. Finally, to bring it all together, the three groups hit the stage in a collaboration production of Galing Natin Ito. Take a look at this FanCam view of their performance below!
AC Bonifacio is the ultimate artist. Widely known as a dancer and actor, she now adds singer to her resume. “Fool No Mo!” is the debut digital single for this international creator.
The track fits her energetic vibe and the music video showcases her insane dance skills. It “talks about the kind of love that leaves someone with nothing – the kind of love that fizzles out as quick as it blazes,” AC revealed in her online press conference. AC aimed to show a different side of herself as a singer and songwriter, working with Jonathan Manalo and Trisha Denise on the track creating sassy lyrics like:
Whatever you’ll say
I don’t wanna hear it, I don’t wanna
Your love is a game
I’m never gonna miss it, never gonna
Can’t believe I wastеd, so much time on you
Gave you evеrything I have
The release of AC’s “Fool No Mo” makes her the first artist to be launched under the newly-established Star Magic Records.
