Just a thought: Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
MANILA, Philippines — Two postponements: A solo concert by Pops Fernandez and a comedy movie starring Leo Martinez both sailed through a couple of hitches on their way to opening day. Here’s why.
Producers had thought everything was in place when they contracted Pops Fernandez to a May 24 performance at the Newport Performing Arts Center in Pasay City. Announcements had been made until they were informed that the singer-actress was suffering from a recurring throat infection. Pops had also been advised by her doctor to rest her voice for the meantime.
The new playdate of Pops in Fashion, a combination concert and fashion show will be on June 14 at Newport. Showcased side by side Pops’ usually scintillating performance will be creations of three top designers – Maxie Cinco, Francis Libiran and Cary Santiago.
Hot new publicist in town Gian Carlo Vizcarra says this is one show wherein the designers had to get a hold of the repertoire to tailor-suit the clothes for the occasion.
Pops will be backed by the AMP Big Band, musical director Mel Villena and guest singer Erik Santos. The show is part of Resorts World Manila’s series of presentations featuring big-time Pinoy artists which started in January 2011.
