In hopes of having his music introduced to the current and future generation of listeners, singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid recently assigned his catalog to Viva Music Publishing Inc. (VMPI).

With Viva managing and curating more than 50 of Ogie’s compositions in the coming years, fans can expect new versions of the OPM icon’s well-loved hits, which can also appear in future soundtracks, musicals or other productions by Viva Entertainment.
