When two of the Philippines’ most celebrated performers come together for one afternoon of music revelry, the audience can expect a collaboration nothing short of entertainment par excellence.
On July 15, the Philippines’ award-winning singer-composer Ogie Alcasid joins forces with multi-faceted Dance Empress and concert performer Maja Salvador for TFC Live presents: “The Songwriter meets the Wildflower” at Handashi Fukusi Bunka Kaikan, 1-22-1 Kariyado-cho, Handa-shi, Aichi-ken 475-0918.
Alcasid, dubbed the Hitmaker and a judge for the widely followed show “Your Face Sounds Familiar” seen on ABS-CBN The Filipino Channel (TFC), is set to perform for his first TFC show in Asia.
Known for his classic hits “Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang” (a Tagalog phrase that means why are you here only now) and “Nandito Ako” (a Tagalog phrase that means I am here) Filipinos in Japan can expect a rundown of the best in OPM music from the songwriter-singer who is also an actor, former head of Philippine music organization Original Pilipino Music (OPM), and also a philanthropist.
Meanwhile, Salvador, an actress who has created a name for herself for her widely followed characters Lily Cruz/Ivy Aguas, is also known for her dance moves that has earned her the tag Dance Empress. This Japan favorite who first performed for Filipinos in Japan in Kawasaki in 2008 and in Chiba in 2016, is expected to intensify the energy level of the much-awaited collaboration.
Joining Alcasid and Salvador is host Eric Nicolas who will inject with comic relief during the show. Also joining them is global representative and grand finalist of the Tawag ng Tanghalan sa It’s Showtime Huling Tapatan Makoto Inoue.
