Divino Rivera continues to grow as an artist and arranger being honed at weekly music events in various cities, radio and TV and serves as music director at his local church. Writing and recording for several years now, he already has a wide catalog of original songs. This prompted Divino to release a full-length album entitled "Bagong Gising" with some songs he has nitpicked from his collection. Some songs were also written intently for the album's theme and goal -- to stir hearts towards awakening. The tangible and intimate feel of OPM are very present. The songs give a glimpse or a discovery into something more and something deeper. His songs "Metaphors of a Restless Heart", "Unos" and life story had been featured in The 700 Club Asia. Divino also performed in some TV programs at ABS-CBN Baguio, Light Network and SKY Cable. He also made radio appearances at Z-Radio, Cool FM and i-FM.
