MANILA - Following the success of her first art exhibition, singer Kuh Ledesma will once again share to the world her faith-inspired paintings on April 8.

The exhibit, on display at Whitespace, Pasong Tamo in Makati City, will double as a fundraiser for an independent film about the dangers of believing in albularyos (folk healers) entitled "Hilom."

"Becoming a Bible believer and follower of Jesus has made me realize that we are to give God glory in all we do and so how wonderful the beauty of purpose," Ledesma said in a statement.

It will feature art pieces inspired by several passages in the Bible, including one of Psalm 95:2, which Ledesma chose to represent as the musical instrument, cello.

"Over the years I found out that it is not good for us to bury our talents. He has a purpose for what he gives us. God gives some people more talents and 'giftings' and it is important to him that we use it to give him glory," Ledesma explained.

Known for her acclaimed run in the music industry, the singer-actress has been performing for 35 years, with more than 20 studio albums under her belt, including a gospel album.

Ledesma, who started painting in high school, first held a solo art exhibit on 2012.
