Asia's Pop Idol, Christian Bautista, is all set to wow the Philippine audience anew with his first major solo concert for the year, Christian Inspired, at the Cuneta Astrodome on October 6.
Newly awarded with a Platinum award for his latest album, Christian is truly raring to go on stage for this particular concert since it will showcase his life's many inspirations, at the same time, make use of a state-of-the-art visual presentation technology that can change the face of local concert productions.
Christian and his creative team's unique approach to this show is total in nature, referring to all of the balladeer's many sources of inspiration-his family, friends and fans, which he believes God uses to guide him in his personal and artistic journey.
The concert will highlight the use of "Watch Out," an enormous multi-display presentation technology with the dimension of 9x42 feet that will surround the stage. It is the same projection technology that Celine Dion uses in her long-running show at the Colosseum, Las Vegas strip.
"There are so many people that inspire me, people that I am so grateful for. I feel that I have the best job in the world. I get to perform with great musicians, and most creative artists and directors. I get to sing to very appreciative audiences," says Christian. "But I want to offer something new to concert-goers this time around. We are currently in the process of putting the show together with stage director Freddie Santos, and technical director Mart Miranda, who owns the "Watch Out" screens. The use of this technology will surely contribute a lot to the exciting look of the show. With this system, we are only limited by our creativity, and imagination," he adds.
Joining Christian in this groundbreaking concert are fellow ASAP '07 mainstays Toni Gonzaga and Sam Milby as special guests, with the special participation of Kuh Ledesma, Joni Villanueva, Tricia Amper Jimenez, Sam Concepcion and Mr. Gary Valenciano. Mel Villena is musical director of this production.
Christian's self-titled debut album reached Double Platinum, and his second album Completely is near Platinum in Indonesia. His hit single "The Way You Look At Me" was no. 1 foreign song in Singapore last year.
Moreover, Christian's recent concerts in Indonesia (Bali, Surabaya, Jogjakarta, Jakarta, and Medan) were sold-out.
Christian Inspired is staged for the benefit of Imus Unida Christian School.
