Last April 27, Christian Bautista was in Jakarta, Indonesia to appear as a guest in the morning musical variety show De Rings (Ring Tone).
Christian sang "I’m Already King" which is the theme song for his first full-length film titled Simfoni Luar Biasa (A Special Symphony) produced by Nation Pictures Indonesia.
Christian arrived at the Trans TV Studio at 9 a.m. for a sound check then waited in the studio’s coffee shop to review the program’s itinerary. When it was his turn, he stepped on the set after he was introduced by the hosts of the show. The Filipino singer-actor then performed his song, much to the delight of the Indonesian crowd.
During his interview on the show, Christian mentioned how excited and thrilled he is to learn that his movie will finally be seen in the region. The film will be launched in Manila in July 2011 followed by Indonesia on September then in Malaysia and Singapore.
In a previous interview with PEP.ph, Christian described his experience while working on this international film.
"Kakaibang experience ’to, kasi very professional sila. Very nice yung treatment nila sa akin. And at that time, I really gave my best on this project. Hopefully, magustuhan ng mga manonood."
Will you give us a brief description of what this movie is all about?
"I am a Filipino musician who goes to Jakarta to look for a job and to look for my long lost mother. Then, napunta ko sa isang school for special children. Ako yung naging music teacher nila. Tapos ginawa ko silang isang choir. This is a family inspirational movie.
"Ako lang yung nag-iisa Filipino actor dito, the rest of the actors and actresses here are Indonesians na."
