The Ryan Cayabyab Singers in Concert
07 July 2012 | Music Museum
The Ryan Cayabyab Singers marks their fifth year as a group with great music through a concert billed as a “pop concert with a theater twist“ happened at the Music Museum last 07 July 2012. RCS7 is Anezka Alvarez, Poppert Bernadas, VJ Caber, Celine Fabie, Erwin Lacsa, Vince Lim and Kaich Tiuseco, conceptualized in 2007 as a group of outstanding soloists handpicked by Mr. Ryan Cayabyab to vocalize his stellar sound and impeccable artistry.
OPM lovers and concertgoers enjoyed the spotlight segments, RCS and Ryan Cayabyab original songs and other medley of songs: OPM, Motown, MetroPop, Jukebox and Filipino disco hits. RCS7 is a showcase of 7 great voices with a brilliant mentor. They performed an impressive tribute song ‘Tunay na Ligaya’ lovingly dedicated to The Maestro. The group shared the stage with Jolina Magdangal (an alumna of 14K) who performed the song “Kailan.”
It’s our second time covering RCS in Music Museum. Photo above were taken at Motown and Beyond concert last Jan 2011. More photos HERE. What’s different now is that this time performances has a lot of dancing and they look good together executing the choreography of the dance. We were entertained by RCS7’s tap dancing production number to a mashup of Ryan Cayabyab’s ‘Mamang Kutsero’ and Maroon 5 & Christina Aguilera’s ‘Moves Like Jagger.’ They’re not just hitting the right notes but they’re also dancing the right moves.
