Last May 29, multi-awarded actress Nora Aunor marked the 5th decade of being “Tawag Ng Tanghalan” grand champion. She was undefeated champion for 14 weeks, and the youngest at 14 to win the title in the history of the contest.
Nora’s winning piece when she was declared champ was “Moonlight Becomes You.”
She went on to carve a singing career with the hits “People,” “The Greatest Performance Of My Life,” “Ikaw Ang Superstar Ng Buhay Ko,” “Pearly Shells,” “Habang Panahon,” and more.
Nora was feted on her recent birthday by fans.
“Valor” was launched recently by the Philippine Veterans Bank (PVB) and the Board of Trustees of Veterans of World War II (BTVWWII). The documentary recounts the heroism of the late Col. Emmanuel V. de Ocampo during the war as a member of the Hunters-ROTC Guerrillas.
The special screening of the 53-minute long “Valor” was filmed by Spyron AV Manila. The movie was written and directed by young filmmaker Bani Logrono.
The coffee table book with the same title was also launched at the Ayala Museum.
The film “Valor” also touches on Col. Emmanuel’s feats after the War especially his involvement with the veterans sector as the leader of the VFP and with PVB as well.
After the screening, a copy of the documentary was presented to the De Ocampo Family by PVB Chairman Roberto F. De Ocampo, BTVWWII Chairman, Justice Manuel Pamaran, BTVWWII Trustee Col. Francisco San Miguel and Spyron AV Manila Managing Director Lucky Guillermo. It was received by Dr. Pilar de Ocampo, the late colonel’s wife.
The documentary film was first premiered at the Presidential Museum & Library, then screened in schools and malls all over the country aimed at the youth.
