A Detailed Examination Of Straightforward Secrets Of
The Sunday, April 27, concert "An Evening of Original Philippine Music with Cecile Azarcon and Sounds of Manila" at Peter Norton Symphony Space (2537 Broadway and 95th Street), where both showband vocalists are set to perform, will be a musical tribute to celebrate Azarcon's timeless pop songs: "Even If," recently revived by Tony winner Lea Salonga ; "How Did You Know," recently revived by Gary Valenciano ; "Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin" by Nievera; and "I Think I'm In Love," originally sung by the Pop Diva Kuh Ledesma, are among Azarcon's timeless hits, which have stayed on as staple favorites in the Philippines and in Filipino-American communities across the United States over the last 35 years. "You can touch the hearts of the Filipino audience [whom Arcedo and Gado believe the 'most difficult to please'] through music and songs. When performing before a Filipino audience, you shouldn't just be singing to them. You should reach out to them, too--you need to give yourself completely to them," says Arcedo. "We will strive to do just like that in the upcoming concert." Gado asserts, "Our concert will be a rare gathering of both Filipinos and non-Filipino family members and friends to experience our culture. It will be a great way to discover how brilliant Filipino musicians and artists are." "The concert will also give due credit to the brilliant minds behind some of OPM's greatest songs we both grew up with," Arcedo adds. Besides Arcedo and Gado, emerging young vocalists Tiffany Viray("X Factor" on FOX) and Jared Martin ("ASAP 19" on ABS-CBN, "The Ryza Mae Show" on GMA), who recently shared the stage with Nievera at Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, will also guest star. As a special treat to concertgoers, Sounds of Manila, made up of Ronnie Sabangan, Hermie Angeles, Suzanne Lansangan-Sabangan, JR Gendrano, Bobby de Leon (on hiatus) and Aaron Garcia (on hiatus), will also launch in the concert one of Azarcon's three newest songs that is included in the band's debut album. Titled "Sounds of Manila Sings Cecile Azarcon," the album will feature 10 songs written and produced by Azarcon, and arranged and co-produced by Ilustre, available in April and at the concert hall lobby. The concert is produced by Synergy Production & Marketing Inc., which has recently been formed to support and showcase Filipino-American talents.
