Celestine was originally from a small town named Lunao near Gingoog City in the Southern Philippines. She grew up as the youngest of three sisters and four brothers. Her brothers all played instruments and her sisters all sang. Their father was an elder in a small church and the brothers and sisters all provided the music so Celestine grew up with a love of music along with her love for Jesus. Getting together with friends and singing contests were two of the favorite pastimes in their small community. Life was simple but Celestine dreamed of a life where singing and glorifying God would take priority. Meanwhile, on the other side of the earth, a keyboard player by the name of Michael was ending a tour with his rock band when he was taken ill. Believing it was a result of the lifestyle of being on the road for years and constant partying, he didn't take it seriously. Then, given at the most six months to live, it was definitely a time for a change. Praying to God for help, he was led to a penpal named Celestine. They remained friends for two years, made stronger with their love of music, until her father invited Michael to come to the Philippines for a visit and to meet with their family. It was then that Michael could see what God had planned for him. Though the music they enjoyed were two completely different styles, they began to appreciate each others tastes in music. Eventually collaborating on several compositions, they offer this musical journey to a place not often traveled... If you would like to try a different sound, try the new album by Celestine. Blending folk, progressive and a touch of classical music with unique arrangements and harmonies for a new and refreshing style in Christian music...
