(REP) – Royal Entertainment Productions, in conjunction with Eye Candy Artist Management and Chic Boy Lounge and Grille in cooperation with Budweiser, proudly presents Zendee “The Random Girl You Tube Sensation” and Faith Cuneta, the “Queen of Teleserye Theme Songs” together with Zendee & Company with the Berriez. They will be performing live at Chic Boy Lounge and Grille located at the Harmon Industrial Park beginning Oct. 15, with nightly concert shows starting at 7 p.m.

Executive Producer Jemuel Luciano of Royal Entertainment Productions said: “I have been working on this project for almost two years now, it’s worth the wait!” Luciano added that Guam’s music enthusiasts can watch these artists up close and personal, with free admission at Chic Boy Lounge and Grille.

Jose Morato, owner of Chic Boy Lounge and Grille, is thankful for the generous sponsorship of Budweiser and Ambros “because without them we will not be able to bring such huge and well-known international artists from the Philippines.”

He added: “I am so glad that international stars like Zendee and Company with the Berriez from the EyeCandy Artist Management and Faith Cuneta will be performing live in my venue, it is a great honor indeed! So, I am inviting everyone to come and watch these topnotch Artists at ChicBoy Lounge and Grille,” Morato said. 

Zendee Rose Tenerefe (Zendee Rose Japitana Tenerefe born on June 21, 1991) is a Filipino singer, who rose to prominence after being known on YouTube as the “random girl of SM Megamall” and made her U.S. TV debut on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."  The 21-year-old Pinay received a standing ovation from the audience after she performed Whitney Houston's hit, "I Will Always Love You."   Zendee became a YouTube sensation when a video of her belting out Jennifer Holiday's "And I'm Telling You" while trying out a karaoke microphone at a mall made its way on the popular video sharing site. 

Prior to her discovery, Zendee had already participated in numerous singing competitions from her native General Santos City in southern Philippines and won as the Grand Champion of the Gensan Pop Idol last 2011.

After a YouTube user uploaded her video singing Whitney Houston's version of "I Will Always Love You," it immediately went viral. The video has prompted the GMA network magazine show “Kapuso Mo” to feature her in one of their episodes. Her most "global" exposure was her appearance of The Ellen DeGeneres Show after being invited by Ellen DeGeneres herself. Her video has amassed more than 2 million hits and it also paved the way for her to ink a recording deal with Warner Music Philippines and come out with her first debut album entitled "I Believe" in 2013.
