Christian, Julie Anne in a night of music and laughter


    February 8 will be an early Valentine’s Day treat for music and comedy fans up north with “Asia’s Pop Diva” Julie Anne San Jose and “Asia’s Romantic Balladeer” Christian Bautista set to showcase their world-class talents again via “The Sweetheart and The Balladeer (Fun Night Only)” at the Urdaneta City Cultural and Sports Center in Pangasinan.

    The comic duo of Donita Nose and Super Tekla and Kyline Alcantara are featured in the show as special guests.

    This is the third leg of “The Sweetheart and The Balladeer (Fun Night Only)” following its sold-out shows in Iloilo City and Cagayan de Oro last year. And as part of the 70th anniversary celebration of GMA, this pre-Valentine concert under the Kapuso Live series raises the bar as Julie Anne, Christian and their guest, Kyline, bring fun and music on stage through medleys and performances that express different stories about love.

    “It’s always been a wonderful experience performing for our Kapuso in different parts of the Philippines and abroad. We just want everyone to have fun. That has always been our goal so this concert’s repertoire will revolve around love songs, and songs that inspire, kasi ‘yun ang gusto nating iparamdam sa audience. I’m very excited for this concert,” says Julie Anne.

    Christian, on the other hand, shares that they will offer a show-stopping performance for the third leg of their concert series. “It’s a challenge to show something new in every concert but I am very lucky to be performing once again with these amazing artists. We have more surprises in store for all. Julie and I have performed together several times so we’ve already built that rapport. I believe ‘DonEkla’ will up their game while Kyline, we’ve seen her grow as a performer, so expect nothing less as we all celebrate the month of love and GMA’s 70th anniversary.”

    Meanwhile, Donita Nose and Super Tekla will take the audience to a journey of love – but filled with humor. Concert-goers must brace themselves for an evening of laughter as the “DonEkla” tandem pokes fun on today’s dating trends and their own relationship experiences.

    Produced by GMA Network under Kapuso Live, “The Sweetheart and The Balladeer (Fun Night Only)” is a joint project between the Network’s regional arm GMA Regional TV and GMA Entertainment Group. At the helm of this concert is Paolo Valenciano.

    “As part of the Network’s 70th anniversary celebration and as a pre-Valentine treat to our Kapuso, we are now bringing ‘The Sweetheart and the Balladeer (Fun Night Only)’ to Urdaneta City, Pangasinan,” shares Oliver Amoroso, GMA Regional TV vice president and head. “After conquering Iloilo and Cagayan de Oro, we want the Kapuso all over the country to experience and be able to witness the spectacular talents of Julie, Christian, and Kyline, and, of course to laugh out loud with Donita Nose and Super Tekla. For this leg, we also want the younger generation to be able to get up close with them, that’s why we made our tickets very affordable for them. We invite everyone to fall in love and laugh with us this February 8.”

    “Last year, we witnessed the warm reception of The Sweetheart and the Balladeer (Fun Night Only) in Visayas and Mindanao. Now it’s time for our Kapuso up north to experience this world-class concert produced by GMA Network through GMA Regional TV and GMA Entertainment Group. We offer this show to our Kapuso as we celebrate not just the month of love but also the Network’s 70th anniversary. We are very excited to have once again Julie, Christian, and DonEkla together with Kyline in a night filled with music and laughter,” shares Darling de Jesus Bodegon, GMA Entertainment Group vice president for Business Development Department III.
