Nora Aunor’s Comeback

One of the biggest new stories this year is the return in August of Nora Aunor after 8 years in the States. She did a mini-series for TV, “Sa Ngalan ng Ina”, that sadly didn’t make waves in the ratings. She’s supposed to do a movie for Regal, “Hototay”, but it didn’t push through. She became a veteran of attending awards nights that give her special recognitions and lifetime achievement awards. So far, we don't hear of any new projects with her. She said she’ll leave back for the U.S. this January to have her throat surgery in Boston that will give her back her golden voice. Let's pray the operation becomes successful so she can thrill her fans again with her singing.
