“Ang ating buhay ay isang malaking entabladong puno ng palabas. At ang bawat palabas na ito ay salamin ng ating bawat tagumpay. Bawat pagkakadapa at pagbangon ay pagkakataon upang tayo ay matuto. Wala pong paligsahan sa mata ng Diyos. Sa halip na tumingin sa iba, subukan nating tingnan at alamin kung ano pang puwedeng gawin upang lalong mapagbuti ang ating mga sarili.” - Korina B. Sanchez

Who would have thought that someone with a cleft lip will “wow” the audience in the TV noontime show, Showtime! Not even Jhon himself believed it was really happening.

Jhon was a 4-time winner in Showtime’s contest portion, “Sample, Sample” – a big achievement for someone who has a speech disability. His short stint in the show has gained him not just confidence, but a number of fans.

Lola Divas is composed of 59-year old Mama Roming, 55-year olds Bong and Bobby and 51-year old Ani.

All 4 divas made it big in Japan years ago and entertainment was their life. Until 2004, due to the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act, they were forced to come back home to the Philippines, along with 80,000 Filipino workers.

Instead of being jobless in Manila, they formed the group, Lola Divas. Despite their age, they can still bring the house down with their amazing performances on stage.
