MYMP New Album Features Boholano Composer

By Earl David

Popular acoustic band MYMP has released its new album under Ivory Records called “New Horizon.” The brand new album includes three songs written by noted Boholano hit songwriter Jimmy Borja who hails from Loay town but who now lives in Southern California.

MYMP lead vocalist Juris Fernandez personally asked Borja to write songs for their album. Juris father, Roger Fernandez traces his roots to Loay. MYMP is one of the premiere acts in the Philippines today, fresh from a U.S tour and a multi-platinum debut album.

Borja also wrote the recent hit of Philippine pop princess Sarah Geronimo “I Still Believe In Loving You.”

Last year, he also had a major hit “If The Feeling Is Gone” with R & B artist Kyla.

MYMP’s latest CD features a Christmas song composed by Borja called “Soon It’s Christmas.

Christmas songs always have a special meaning to Borja, his first major hit song was a Christmas ballad “Sana Ngayong Pasko”, first popularized by Ariel Rivera.

Over the years, “Sana Ngayong Pasko” has been recorded by countless other artists including Lea Salonga, Jolina Magdangal, Sharon Cuneta and most recently by Jed Madela. It has now become a Christmas classic, played on radio and performed on television year after year and even used in TV commercials.


Borja also penned the Lani Misalucha mega hit “Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin" and his songs have been recorded by a diverse bunch of artists like Ogie Alcasid, Carol Banawa, Dingdong Avanzado, Jessa Zaragosa, Janno Gibbs, Chad Borja, Pops Fernandez, Roselle Nava, Ella May Saison, Agot Isidro, Jaya, Zsazsa Padilla, to name a few. He also has songs on upcoming releases of Rachelle Ann Go, Mark Bautista and bossa nova artist Sofia.

In the U.S., he has performed in various songwriter venues. Last December 14, he performed at Hallenbecks in North Hollywood in a special Songwriter Showcase sharing the stage with American songwriter Lois Blaisch who composed “Could Have Been” popularized by Tiffany and Jessica Simpson.
