Jed Madela to Hit Southeast Asia, Sam Is Peter Pan in New Production


Just a thought: Happiness cannot be found at the end of the road. It is experienced along the way.

This was followed by another hit album, "Songs Rediscovered," which turned double platinum (30,000 units sold). It carried a hit revival of "The Past." Other albums followed in quick succession, all of them bestsellers: "Only Human" (Platinum), "The Voice of Christmas" (Gold), and "Songs Rediscovered 2" (Platinum), and now, "The Classics Album" (Gold). …
