Divas 4 Divas a Major DIVAstation



Based on my previous entry about hard economic times, I did my best not to give in to my wants. I meant, I would love to splurge for these 4 Divas. But I need to tame myself. On second thought, being offered by scalpers 50% discount on high end tickets is such a welcome temptation. If they were just early, I would have surrendered to such offers.

I intentionally did not read any articles nor watch any tv appearances when they were promoting this show. I wanted to watch the show with ZERO expectations. Honestly, I believe that Rowell Santiago's resignation as the show's director, was purely a marketing gimmick. So there's an effective formula for creating a much needed buzz for this once in a lifetime concert. Look at the picture and see for yourself.




So where do I begin? I used to be very detailed and unforgiving in my reviews before. But since I'd like to be interactive, I'll let the vids and the pics narrate what really transpired during the show. Now, please be forgiving since am not in the best seating position and for strategic recording purposes. I can't be in front seats and blatantly record the entire show. I'd like to pay Respect to GMA since the show will be televised this month. For sure there will be additional graphics that will be incorporated when they release this on tv. So, please be content with an amateur video. The main purpose is to share to those less fortunate Songbird worshippers, fans, friends and loved ones of the other Divas worldwide. I am not in any manner, intends to jeopardize this TV Special.










These are random pictures that will serve as teasers. I will do my best in uploading the vids IN ORDER. Let's start with this one.







False alarm! Here's the Real Opening - We Will Rock You, Queen of the Night & Free Your Mind. The outfits remind me of Christian Siriano of Project Runway Season 4.





So the opening number's just like one of those overtly used medleys. I was scared that it'll be predictable. Not until they played the chords of I'll Be There --- it turned out to be Beautiful!




And so to Really Love a Woman....





Annie Lennox !
Sweet Dreams are made of ..







What the??? Dreamgirls local version? I was wrong... tribute to Diana Ross





I had to stop. My apologies to Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah fans. Need to allot space for more important performances. She sang Love Will Find You... Someday..


Ikaw Lamang?





One of my favorites. I like the ethnic touch in the arrangement. I love the way Regine sounded like Grace Nono. A tribute to the ALL time Diva - Mothers. Sa Ugoy ng Duyan arranged by Bob Aves. Enjoy!






After this song let me get some sleep. It's been a LONG day... To be continued

ei thanks for the concern sa co-songbird worshippers. wala nga talaga akong budget (student pa lang po ako) and even if i had money, hindi late din kami natapos sa school kahapon so no way din na umabot ako. sana po you can update soon. i think the diana ross medley was awesome! nanghihinayang tuloy talaga ko na ndi ako nakanood.. huhuhu..

I can empathize with your plight. I hope the uploads will not cause any problem with any parties involved with the production.

I will be uploading the rest of the vids. This time I'd like people to request them.

To those appreciative souls: You're welcome!

Kuh is ok. She's a born again Christian and she's mukhang pera. I can't seem to reconcile the two aspects.

i was there!!! i can say this is the best concert this year.. its actually a milestone cos prqa tong divas live nila mariah..

walang sapawan..lahat may moment..nagkataon lang na mas sikat si regine kaya mas madami sya fans and.. lets admit..shes better than those three... in terms of performance.. spiels...i dont know.. kasi ang stiff nung tatlo eh.. kung wla sguro si regine sa concert... it would be a flop.. sama ko..ahaha.. well..kuh was also good.

Yeah. It's like Divas Live. The funny antics are just one dimensional. Regine is Regine. She attracts people. She was just modest not to brag and that most of her fans were the ones who bought the cheapest tickets.

Thanks for your comment!
