Asia’s Pop Sweetheart Julie Anne San Jose and Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista are off to showcase world-class performances in the much-anticipated second leg of the Kapuso concert “The Sweetheart and the Balladeer: Fun Night Only” tomorrow, July 6, at The Atrium, Limketkai Center, Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City.
Joining them once again is the comedic duo of Donita Nose and Super Tekla who, together with Julie and Christian, previously wowed the Ilonggo crowd with their voices and comedic talent during the first leg of “The Sweetheart and the Balladeer: Fun Night Only” last January. Kapuso Breakout Star Kyline Alcantara will be the special guest in the Cagayan de Oro concert.
Julie Anne shares that their strong bond as a team, coupled by their unified goal to make the audience happy, play a huge part on why she thinks “The Sweetheart and the Balladeer remains to be a show to watch. “Hindi mahirap mag-build ng rapport sa amin. Sobrang close na namin lahat. I think sila (DonEkla and Kyline) talaga ang nagpapa-up ng game namin ni Christian and of course, the audience. Sila (audience) rin ang reason bakit namin ginagawa ang show. Our goal is to make them happy. So we’re very excited about this.”
Christian further assures concert-goers that they are in for nothing but a stellar experience. “Itong concert na ‘to, buo na siya. We’re constantly refining it, mas pinapaganda pa namin. Mag-eenjoy lang talaga sila. Lalo na DonEkla and Kyline are here, they are such great performers as well. It’s a complete show that everyone will enjoy,” he says.
Meanwhile, Donita Nose and Tekla are all praises for Julie and Christian for their exemplary professionalism and undeniable chemistry as performers on stage.
“Para silang pinag-match talaga. Kapag tumingin sila sa isa’t isa, alam na nila ang gagawin. Kung kailangan nila magpakilig, magpapakilig sila. Pero kung kailangan nilang magbigay ng magandang performance at bumirit, definitely walang question doon, kasi pareho silang magaling talaga,” shares Donita Nose.
“Every time na sumasampa sina Julie at Christian on stage, may magic talaga. Honestly, mapapa-wow ka na lang,” Tekla adds.
Kyline, who humbly professed her admiration towards her co-performers, is grateful for the lessons she has acquired from the four. “Sobrang galing at matagal na rin po sila sa industriya. Marami po akong natututunan sa kanila—sa personality, paano magpatawa, paano magkaroon ng connection—sobrang expert nila roon at tinuturo nila iyon sa akin na baguhan pa lang dito sa industriya.”
The Sweetheart and the Balladeer: Fun Night Only is a joint project between the Network’s regional arm GMA Regional TV, GMA Entertainment Group, and GMA Pinoy TV.
