FROM a distance ay aakalain ninyong Korean pop singer ang umaawit ng 'Yakap," a song popularized ni Junior Morales, a Fil-Spanish who became a big star in Spain in the 70s. A closer look reveals that he is none other than pop balladeer Ronnie Liang whose singing career (thanks to Viva) is on the upswing.
Ang Yakap ay tiyak na aawitin ni Ronnie sa solo concert niyang 'Love X Romance' sa Music Museum on November 8, 2019. Another song in his repertoire ay ang cover version ng 'Ligaya' ng Eraserheads to date.
Said songs are enjoying a prolonged stay at the top ten charts. Love X Romance is a celebration of love through music. A peek into the 12 year old career ni Ronnie sa entertainment field.
Will the presence of his non'-showbiz girlfriend be felt during the November 8 event? Only in spirits perhap dahil she is working abroad (New York). It has been a long distance relatlonship sa loob ng limang taon.
Another cause for celebration ay ang pag-graduate soon ni Ronnie as a full-fledged pilot. He never missed his flying class sa kabila ng hectic skeds. Witness Ronnie's growth as a singer and performer in his nearing concert. His special guests are Janine Tenoso, Ella Cruz at pop princess Sarah Geronimo.
SURPRISING CONTESTANTS ON TNT
A SURPRISING revelation for us ay ang pagsali ni Ethel Booba sa Celebrity Edition ng TNT sa Showtime.
We know her as a bosomy comedian whose lovelife is an open book. We never heard her sing until we watched TNT. What powerful voice she's got. 'Help' ang inawit niya at first bar pa lang we know she will be winner for third day.
It turned out graduate si Ethel at lagi siyang champion. We cant help but pity sa mga nakasabay niyang kalahok. She can sound like Dulce or Jessa which she did. Dasal ni Dulce is for Ethel to take her singing seriously but not necessarily abandoning her comic talent dahil dito siya mas appreciated.
Still on TNT Special Celebrity Edition, one 'celeb' who suffered a sad fate (as in na-gong) is Shirley Fuentes. Indeed how brave and confident of her singing skill in joining. Blame the celeb status.
Two Lady hurados agree that it was a wrong choice of song na hindi kinaya ng vocal chords ni Ms. Fuentes.
