No, I’m not singing, these were actually my thoughts after learning that Aiza Seguerra will have a concert in Araneta. To watch a concert in the month of September isn’t part of my plan because I was set to watch Nine and Bona. Sad ‘no?! Sigh. But at around 330pm of Sept26, I saw a tweet from @ASAPofficial saying that they’re giving away free passes to Aiza’s concert, so I didn’t hesitate and joined their contest. They just asked about the songs we would like to hear from the ASAP Sessionistas. And here’s my answer:
They did heartbreak and love songs, songs about friendship, names & numbers too! how about they do a medley of songs about places/countries?
Richard - Englishman in New York
Princess - Party in the USA
Nyoy - Moonlight in Paris
Juris - California King Bed
Sitti - Waking Up in Vegas
Aiza - Back in the USSR
At 10pm of the same day, someone texted me, saying that I won. Sweet! What a lucky kid I was. And so with that, lemme share to you my #BenteSingko experience with my friend @VerJube.
Sept28, 9pm, the show started with Aiza singing Eraserhead’s’ Alapaap together with the Pogi band & ABS-CBN Orchestra conducted by Gerard Salonga. She also sang her hits and medleys of beautiful songs. Her guests were the people that has been a part of her 25 years in the business. They were The Company, Cookie Chua, Bayang Barrios, Krizza Neri, ASAP Sessionistas, Martin Nievera, Gary V and Vic Sotto.
My favorite part of the concert would have to be Aiza’s duet with Bossing VIc Sotto. I got teary eyed because the two got emotional. Video below by luasuhcnem.
Some celebrities spotted in the concert were Ruby Rodriguez, Pauline Luna, Charo Santos-Concio, Ms. Maricel Soriano and Ms. Sharon Cuneta that serves as a special guest.
The show lasted for 1 hour and 30 mins. After the concert, the ASAP team lead us to the backstage to meet Aiza. We got to meet, greet and had our photo taken with her. We also got to have a photo opp with Bossing!
Over all, that was a fun experience for me. Thank you asap for the media pass! And to @VerJube for joining me.
