OPM icon Jamie Rivera’s three-decade musical journey will be honored in a tribute album Hey It’s Me, Jamie!, a Star Music compilation of the Inspirational Diva’s biggest hits that will be available for the first time at her upcoming concert with the same title happening at the Music Museum on Sept. 8.
Kapamilya artists Janella Salvador, Ylona Garcia, Bailey May, Morisette, JC Santos, Juris, Jed Madela, Jona, Yeng Constantino, Angeline Quinto, Vina Morales, Erik Santos, and Ogie Alcasid have recorded Jamie’s most unforgettable songs that she wrote, paying homage to her in her 30th anniversary in the business as a singer and songwriter.
The former Miss Saigon performer also has one track she recorded for the album entitled “Thank You,” a song she offers to her biggest career inspirations – her fans, her family, and the Lord.
According to the OPM singer, she is grateful for reaching three decades in the industry, a milestone that she never expected.
“I never planned my career, I just let it run its natural course. Over the years, I gained and lost friends, learned humility, gained wisdom, celebrated success and accepted failures. And it was all good because God planned my career,” shared Jamie who is both thrilled and thankful for her upcoming concert and album.
