Actress-singer Belle Mariano is back with a new extended play (EP) “BELIEVE,” a collection of inspiring tracks about accepting one’s fate, overcoming pain, and making big dreams and an exciting prelude to her sold-out concert of the same name happening this July.

The mini-album has five songs including “Biglaan,” ‘Pakisagot,” “Little World Changer,” “I, Save, Me,” and “Apelyido,” all produced by StarPop label head Roque “Rox” Santos.

Belle is set to perform these tracks in “BELIEVE: The Belle Mariano Birthday Concert” happening on July 13 (Saturday), 8 pm at The Theatre at Solaire produced by ABS-CBN Events and StarPop. Fans may also catch its livestream via iWantTFC mobile app and website or through iWantTFC Tickets for only P599.

Joining Belle as her special guests are Donny Pangilinan, Moira dela Torre, Denise Julia, and Martin Nievera.

The Kapamilya star couldn’t contain her astonishment at doing a concert as big as this at this time in her life. “Hindi ko siya na-visualize. It was too grand for me,” Belle said in disbelief.

“I used to sing in the videoke with my lolo and it feels like I’m not just fulfilling my dream, I’m also fulfilling his,” she added.

Preparing for the musical event however has made her have more faith in her capability as a performer. She said, “The process of the concert made me believe in myself. This marks a growth of who I am in the industry.”

She is also introducing a more mature sound and storytelling in her latest music offering.

“Biglaan,” which speaks of destiny finding its way to bring something more than what is expected, serves as the “BELIEVE” EP’s focus track. Another empowering track, “Little World Changer,” is a dreamy ode to a young person’s big aspirations.

“Pakisagot” is about a girl weeping in prayer and demanding answers on why terrible things happen to good people, “I, Save, Me” is abouit processing heartache and false hope, and “Apelyido” is about that special moment when one finally finds the right person.

As a music artist, Belle opened up about how she wants to be remembered whenever music listeners hear her songs.

“I want to make the listeners, the audience, believe in themselves,” she said.

“BELIEVE” EP follows the New Gen Phenomenal Actress’ previously released albums “Daylight” and “Somber and Solemn.” Among her hit songs are “Sigurado,” “Kahit Na, Kahit Pa,” “Tanging Dahilan,” and “Bugambilya.”
