Talent management agency STAGES are lining up their artists in an intimate afternoon of music where fans can watch their idols perform live and interact with them at the same time. Dubbed “Stages Sessions,” the one to two-hour show of authentic performances will happen twice a month until the 24th of January.
The very first #StagesSessions was held last Sunday afternoon, September 13, at the 26th St Bistro by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf located at the ground floor of the Net Lima Building in Bonifacio Global City with no less than Asian Sensation Christian Bautista as the featured artist.
Fans, friends, followers and even relatives of Christian were able to watch him perform up close. The kapuso heartthrob even developed a level of closeness to his audience by interacting with them, giving his personal insights to every song, and cracking some jokes from time to time which filled the cozy venue with laughter.
Christian performed several band favorites like Eraserhead’s “Ligaya,” Hale’s “Kung Wala Ka,” South Border’s “Rainbow” and Rico Blanco’s “Your Universe.” His take on “Kiss From A Rose” by Seal and James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” were instant crowd favorites. He also performed the first acoustic version of “Two Forevers,” his single featuring American Idol Jessica Sanchez.
The 31-year-old actor/singer went personal with a heart-wrenching rendition of KZ Tandingan’s “Wag Ka Nang Umiyak.” Then he became a little bit sentimental as he looked back on his first song that made him a multi-platinum and even diamond recording artist–“The Way You Look at Me.”
Christian is inviting everyone to experience intimate and authentic performances you won’t get from big venue concerts in the remaining 9 “Stages Sessions.” Lined up for their own shows are his fellow Stages artists like Aicelle Santos, Bullet Dumas, Sheila Valderrama, Morisette Amon, and Hayden Kho.
Ryan Christopher, the artist who opened Christian’s gig last Sunday, will take the spotlight in the second #StagesSessions this September 27, Sunday at 5:00pm, to be held also at 26th St Bistro by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf located at the ground floor of the Net Lima Building in Bonifacio Global City.
