Philippines’ Hottest Girl Group, 4th Impact, and the Dreamers
By Mark Daniels
Some would say that the shouts of joy, laughter, and stunned voices of the girls of 4th Impact could be heard around the world.
With 6 minutes left in their KUMU broadcast on Saturday May 23rd, the girls of 4th Impact, who had already surpassed their previous week’s record of 2 million diamonds, were now on the verge of reaching 3 million diamonds.
KUMU is a social networking platform based in the Philippines where many artists now go in order to stay in touch with their fans and perform for them during the Pandemic.
The virtual gifts or diamonds that fans send can be converted into cash. For many artists this is their only source of income.
On this day, the fans of 4th Impact were determined to make sure the girls made history again.
Irene stated breathlessly, “Guys I cannot breathe..wait guys..I’m waiting for the 3 million.”
Suddenly the sounds of pure joy, laughter, and excitement rang out from the girls as they realized they just reached 3 million diamonds, as they began jumping up and down screaming.
As Mylene jumped up and down, Celina, trying to catch her breath said “Ok, ok wait, wait, calm yourself, calm down, calm down, let’s see.”
When Mylene stopped jumping she looked into the camera and said “Dreamers and Patreons we love you so much!!”
Irene agreed. “Guys, Dreamers, and Patreons you are making us feel so overwhelmed.”
Almira nodded. “We can’t say thank you enough.”
“Thank you so much guys,” Irene added, “even though there is a pandemic, we appreciate your generosity, your help.”
As Irene reflected she added “I think the magic is the Dreamers and the Patreons.”
As we approach the 5 year anniversary of 4th Impact, with their song K(no)w More still at the top of the charts in the Philippines and in the top 3 on 89.9 FM The Wave, the top 20 charts in Brazil, along with participating in many interviews along with an appearance on EBC’s (Eagle Broadcasting Corporation) Enjoy Music Beyond the Crisis, the girls of 4th Impact have been very visible recently despite the pandemic.
The debut video of 4th Impact on X-Factor UK has just also reached an unbelievable 162 Million views making it the most viewed video of all time for X-Factor UK.
With the passionate support of their fans which are lovingly referred to as Dreamers supporting and promoting 4th Impact every step of the way, the question comes up, who are the Dreamers and what has inspired so many people from around the world to come together as one worldwide family to support, promote, love and care for these girls?
Many dreamers have been sending me emails and messages for weeks sharing their thoughts and feelings about 4th Impact and what the girls mean to them.
What originally started out as a story about 4th Impact has now become a love letter from Dreamers worldwide to the girls of 4th Impact.
After reading their words, you will see the reason why so many Dreamers from around the world support 4th Impact. And when you read these testimonials you will learn so much more about who the girls of 4th Impact really are.
Hyun Jae- “My name is Jobs. There was a time I wanted to give up, feeling sad, broken, and tired of everything, but because of 4th Impact I didn’t give up. They always tell us Dreamers never give up in any situation because there is a God who loves us so much and these struggles are a part of our life that will make us strong. We just need to trust God. I always remember that Celina says ‘Never stop dreaming. Eventually dreams do come true. Believe, achieve.’
I keep that quote in my heart forever.
My house burned down in May 2019. A common Dreamer friend had told Almira about it. I was feeling down and I was browsing my phone when I couldn’t believe that Almira messaged me! She asked if I’m ok, where are we, and how can she help me?
If you ask me what does 4th Impact mean to me? They are God’s gift to me. They are God’s instrument and they inspire me so much.”
Gregory Roberts- “An angels shield is their song. They use it to protect the weak and comfort the weary. The most precious angels are the ones that don’t know they are angels. 4th Impact says prayers and give thanks to their supporters, friends, and family. They have a constant display of grace, gratitude, and concern for other people. These are delightful, warm, caring, giving souls, and by the way, they just happen to also be a world-class singing and performance group.
About the Dreamers, you will find that as a group, they are nice people that are respectful to each other and their kindness is expressed in the way they speak to each other. Communicating with other Dreamers is a welcoming and inclusive experience.”
Jim Ough– “All 4 young ladies show grace, concern for their fellow human beings, a healthy sense of humor, concern for others, and an understanding of the aspects of life that is unique in today’s world.
That makes you root for them simply because they expect nothing past what they earn.
4th Impact defines what the term “role model” means.”
James Garton– “I had played music for over 30 years. After I retired as an IT specialist I lost interest in music. I saw 4th Impacts debut on X-Factor UK. They took the crowd, the judges, and including me to a level I had not been on in a long time. The girls pray before and after each performance. They wanted you to know that God was responsible for what they could do. These girls went through disappointment over and over, but they would always pick themselves up and just keep going. They were not known in many places including the USA but I found they somehow had a group of fans called Dreamers, and the Dreamers 4th Impact were superstars. After a while I could tell that Dreamers were like a group of friends. They would do anything for 4th Impact and 4th Impact would do anything for them. It’s like one big group with a common dream, to make 4th Impact the best in the world. They are all in it together.
4th Impact has a talent that God has given them to share with the world.
I’m 73. I will stick beside these girls until they make it. If I can help them in any way I will do so. They bring joy to my life I never had before. They are like my own kids and I really feel I do owe them my life, and showing me there are good people in life. I think they are Angels that God sent down to show us how people are supposed to be on Earth.”
Harold Kelly – “The girls never want to let their Dreamers down. Everything the ladies do is for the family, and for the Dreamers.
I use their ‘Never give up your dreams, never stop believing’ as my everyday theme. When Almira said ‘The reason they keep going and going and don’t give up is because of the Dreamers.’
I never want to let them down. They will never let us down so as a Dreamer I am not going to let them down either.
To a true Dreamer, there is no greater love, than to see 4th Impact realize their dreams because their dreams are our dreams.”
To write more about how much 4th Impact has changed the lives of so many Dreamers around the world and what the girls mean to them would become a novel.
It is extremely humbling to read all of the testimonials Dreamers have about 4th Impact. It is very rare in the entertainment industry these days to find a relationship between artist and the fans that are similar to 4th Impact and the Dreamers
As we look forward to a time when a vaccine is available and life returns to normal, with the Dreamers behind them, we will see 4th Impact become worldwide Superstars. Just like the song that 4th Impact sings, with the Dreamers and 4th Impact together as one “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now.”

About Tabaco City
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” but as we set foot to the City of Tabaco, in the wonderful province of Albay, beauty is when you gaze upon the Mayon volcano. Yes, Tabaco City is where the perfect cone shaped volcano seats. And if you’re wondering why the famous volcano is called “Mayon”, well, that’s just short for the Bicolano word “magayon” (which means beautiful). Tabaco is a city of love, as it brings us one of the best “love affairs” that will forever remind us why we are special. This is our love for nature, as well as our love for creator for us – for the place mirrors a true paradise one could only dream of. Aside from the beauty of the place, a lot of things could be unlocked. Whoever thought of “sili ice cream” making it on every Bicolano restaurants’ table is a genius.
There’s more or less a hundred ways to prepare or cook pili nuts. Such delicacies draw people from every corner of the globe to this beautiful place. Bonus is when we get a taste of their 16th City-hood Anniversary. Such event showcases everything that the City has to offer. Those, and with world class entertainment from both local and national artists. This celebration is worth trying for. While Tabaco City’s natural beauty sets it apart from other tourist destinations, it never fails to bring people in one place where together, they can experience beauty of nature, taste of culture, and unexplicable love. All in one.
