For over a decade, the partnership of Anna Puno and Cacai Mitra of Starmedia Entertainment and I-Music Entertainment respectively has spawned some of the most note-worthy OPM concept concerts we have seen today. Just last year, twenty thousand strong witnessed their unparalleled team-up of Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Regine Velasquez, and Lani Misalucha in ULTIMATE that has earned the nod as 2015’s PMPC Star Awards for Music Concert of the Year Awardee.

This year, in the tradition of giving OPM fans the best in concert entertainment every Valentine season, Starmedia Entertainment and I-Music now present an entirely different concept putting together on one stage four of today’s reigning concert and recording royalties - the Concert King, Martin Nievera, Philippine Prince of Pop, Erik Santos, Queen of Teleserye Themesongs, Angeline Quinto and social media trending Queen of OPM, Asia’s Songbird, Regine Velasquez in… ROYALS.

This will be the very first time Martin, Erik, Angeline and Regine will headline a show together and sky’s definitely the limit with what these four powerhouses can do! ROYALS is sure to be a magnificent event where audiences will be treated to an impressive showcase of vocal excellence, hearing songs of old and new, fusions of classic and current chart-toppers from these exceptional artists that have made their own mark in the Philippine music industry. Each with their respective royal titles and each creating a unique impact in the hearts of the Filipino people, no doubt now is their time to reign supreme, together!

During their first press conference last January 13, when asked what is to be expected of Royals, the Concert King said that they will certainly be giving “a royal performance fit for a royal audience”. He also expressed that Erik and Angeline’s styles are the perfect match with his and Regine’s making them the ideal team for this concert - “I see myself in Erik and I see Regine in Angeline. This is going to be a loud show. It’s Martin-Regine times 2!”

Martin and Regine have been working together for the past 3 years every Valentine’s that the Songbird said that it has already become quite a “tradition”. On working with the younger breed of talents this year, she says that although she feels quite pressured about being a "role model" to them, she feels happy - “nakakatuwa, nakakataba ng puso”.

Angeline and Erik however, apart from being excited also feel the pressure to be working with their idols. “Hindi po ‘yon mawawala” Erik says “Kasi po syempre ‘yong idea na makasama po namin ‘yong mga idol namin sa isang concert is a more than a blessing for me and Angeline… So kailangan talaga namin ni Angeline mag-keep up”. Angeline feels the same sentiment especially that she’s the newbie among the four. “Oo naman…sana makasabay ako sa kanila.” She adds, “Sa totoo naman po ako yung pinakabago sa aming apat so andami ko pa pong kailangan matutunan at aralin lalo na sa pagkanta pero hindi ako pinapabayaan ng mga kasama ko. Sinusuportahan nila ako so hindi ako nahihirapan na magtrabaho kasama sila at saka very excited ako na magawa itong concert na ito.”

Although Royals will be the first time they will be headlining a concert together, the four of them already gave a sneak peak on what’s to come this Valentine’s when Martin and Regine did a guest performance in Angeline and Erik’s concert “KQ: Erik Santos and Angeline Quinto” last August. And indeed, it got everyone excited!

‘ROYALS’ will be held on February 13, 2016 (Saturday, 8pm) at the Mall of Asia Arena and February 14, 2016 (Sunday, 8pm) at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino, Cebu City under the stage direction of Rowell Santiago and musical direction of Homer Flores and Raul Mitra.
