Pit Senyor Kapamilya! I’m very excited for the festivities this coming Sunday! It’s the 30th anniversary of the biggest and grandest festival here in the Philippines! And for the 22nd consecutive year, ABS-CBN Cebu will cover all the festivities live and air even to TFC channels all around the world. This will be of course my first time to host the festivities and I’m very excited!
Last year, Alex Badayos, Armando Lorico Jr and Edgar Tan won overall 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place respectively in the Sinulog 2009 Photography Contest. I’m excited to see who will win this year! A lot of my friends especially in Cebu Bloggers Society will be joining the contest (Although a lot join just for the all-access photographer pass. Hehe) and will also be there to cover the festivites. But who knows? You guys might be in the right place at the right time and get the perfect shot! Good luck!
Cebu Pop Music Festival Featuring Miss Vina Morales
I was able to interview Miss Vina Morales and was there last night at Cebu Coliseum where Cebu Popular Music Festival celebrated their 30th year! Instead of the usual Cebu Popular contest, they had a special concert celebrating 30 years of Cebuano talents and featuring one of their biggest stars Miss Vina Morales.
Miss Vina Morales was actually discovered in Cebu Popular Music Festival. She was then still Sharon Magdayao, her real name. She won “Best Interpreter” singing the song “Paglaum” or “Kaming Mga Kabataan Karon”, both very famous Cebuano songs. A Viva Records Talent Manager was in the audience that night and after talks, she was brought to Manila and then a star was born.
I love Miss Vina’s genuineness and warmth. Walang “Kaartehan” talaga and still very humble. And of course, we all love her talent in singing, dancing and entertaining. She brought the house down in Cebu Coliseum when she sang a lot of favorites and Cebuano songs while also singing new and up-beat songs like Lady Gaga.
Watch my interview and our coverage of the Cebu Pop Music Festival at MagTV next Sunday, January 24, 2010. The concert was really a blast! Talking about concerts though, there’s still a lot of major concerts lined up for Sinulog.
Sinulog Major Concerts
There’s also a lot of concerts to look forward to today! There’s going to be 3 major concerts of Kapamilya stars today, January 16, 2010:
1. ASAP’s Kanto Boys featuring Billy Crawford, John Lloyd Cruz, Vhong Navarro and Luis Manzano with Anne Curtis will be have a concert in CICC @ 8pm.
2. Ai-ai, Vice Ganda and Nanay Dionisia will have a concert in Waterfront Hotel and Casino Lahug @ 8pm.
3. Pokwang and Sam Milby will surely make the coliseum explode. They will be in the Cebu Coliseum, Sanciangko St. (near E-Mall) also @ 8pm.
Wow! That’s 3 major concerts all at the same time! Lol. I’m definitely sure that you will enjoy them!
