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..
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
