Happy Birthday, Maestro RYAN CAYABYAB!

One of the country's highly-esteemed music icons, Ryan Cayabyab, celebrates his 60th birthday today!

Apart from composing some of the country's most unforgettable music and film scores, he is also the mentor of so many great artists in the Philippine music industry today. 

And to celebrate this momentous year in his life, later tonight, the maestro will hold “The Music of Ryan Cayabyab” marking another milestone of his musical journey as it showcases his well-loved hits interpreted the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra along with other Filipino top artists. 

Mr. C was hailed the recipient of the MYX Magna Award last 2012, citing his unparalleled and invaluable contribution to the Philippine music industry. A heartwarming musical tribute was given to him by the artists he mentored, such as The Company, Geneva Cruz, Jed Madela, Basil Valdez and Regine Velasquez. 

And to celebrate all things Mr. C, let's take a look back at this tribute performance at the 2012 MYX Music Awards.
