On May 14 and 16, Jennylyn Mercado will celebrate her birthday with a two-night show at the Music Museum. This will also mark her return to the concert scene through the event dubbed as I Am Woman.
I Am Woman will be Jennylyn's "time to shine" as a singer and performer. She will sing and dance onstage, in a repertoire that unleashes her deepest feelings about life, love and being a woman, from standards to pop, dance and OPM hits.
This will actually be Jennylyn's second time to do a concert at the Music Museum. Her first was reportedly a sold-out affair. Also joining her in I Am Woman are special guests Ogie Alcasid and Janno Gibbs, dashing balladeers Christian Bautista and Richard Poon as well as Gemma and Jasmine Fitzgerald. Upcoming singer Nico Antonio will be the front act.
However, it is the presence of Mark Herras that has audiences most intrigued. The two were reunited this year in the soap opera Paano Ba Ang Mangarap, which presented a more mature screen persona for both of them. The soap is rating well, and proves that Jennylyn still has solid support coming from her fans and the fans of her teamup with Mark.
But the people behind the show don't want to spill any other beans or spoil the surprise. The people behind the show say that I Am Woman will be a unique concert experience. "This is going to be interesting, exciting and memorable," adds director Calvin Neria.
On a personal note, the concert will signal Jennylyn's reinvention and moving on. She's been through a lot since her pregnancy and the birth of her son Alex Jazz, and I Am Woman is a musical declaration of her independence as well as her eagerness to embrace the future and all it holds for her and her son.
"That's why I'm really excited to do this show. Matagal-tagal na din akong hindi nakaka-kanta at nakakapag-perform onstage, so in a way it's also a challenge for me," says Jen.
I Am Woman comes on the heels of the launching of Jennylyn's coffee-table book featuring never-before-published photos of her and Alex Jazz, and stories about them from the time of her pregnancy all the way to the baby's birth. It is a must-have item for all of Jennylyn's fans, and single moms who can identify and draw inspiration from what she's been through.
