Kyla, KZ Tandingan, Yeng Contantino, Angeline Quinto reunite for collaboration concert with Boyz II Men on December 15.


After their successful Divas Live in Manila concert in 2016, Queen of R&B Kyla, Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan, Pop-Rock superstar Yeng Constantino, and Queen of Theme Songs Angeline Quinto are back!

On December 15, the Divas return on stage to perform a special collaboration concert with international music artists, Boyz II Men.

"Talagang lahat po kami hands-on sa lahat ng production number na gagawin namin," Angeline told the press at the media conference held at The Felicidad Mansion along Roosevelt Avenue, Quezon City.

Yeng added, "Nakaka-excite kasi meron kaming gagawin na production number with Boyz II Men, so isa po yun sa kailangan abangan... Isang honor na makatrabaho yung ganung ka excellent na musiko."

KZ remarked, "It's always nice to stay out of your comfort zones, and I think sa mga career naming apat, parang ito yung isa sa mga malayo naming nilakbay from our comfort zones."

The concert will be held at Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, and will be directed by ABS-CBN actor John Prats.

 

GOOD KIND OF PRESSURE

Kyla, KZ, Yeng, and Angeline acknowledged that they were nervous to share the stage with Boyz II Men, but the four Cornerstone artists agreed that it was a "good kind of pressure."

KZ told the press, "Iba kasi yung excellence ng Boyz II Men, e, so for us to be in the same concert as them, kailangan yung excellence namin as artists and as performers and as a group, kailangan nasa same level ng Boyz II Men.

"Dun nanggagaling yung pressure, pero maganda siyang pressure kasi lahat kami na-fo-force na ihasa yung sarili namin. No slacking…

"May pressure, pero more than the pressure and yung fear sa mga apprehensions na dumadating sa amin, mas nafi-feel namin yung sobrang thankful kami and very excited." 

Kyla personally felt nervous about the concert since she grew up listening to the band's music. 

She admitted, "Ako, kinakabahan. Parang mix of different emotions, pero mas grabe yung kaba kasi lumaki ako sa music ng Boyz II Men. Sobrang iniidolo ko sila.

"In fact, nung first time po sila nag-perform dito more than ten years ago, nanood ako dun sa may open field sa The Fort. Nung kumakanta sila, apat pa sila nun, hindi ko mapigilan na umiiyak talaga ako.

"Para mabigyan ng pagkakataon na maka-perform on the same stage with them, parang ibang pressure.

"At the same time, sobra din akong excited and looking forward sa mga opportunities na puwedeng mangyari for us…

DIVAS TOGETHER AGAIN

With another major concert on the way, the Divas looked back on the success of their collaboration in 2016.

Kyla, KZ, Yeng, and Angeline were thankful that audiences requested to see more of their team up.

"Sobrang thankful kami na after two years, balik ulit kami saka nire-request pa rin ng mga tao. Hindi kami nakalimutan…" KZ said.

"Isa din sa pinakamagandang memories ko with Divas ay nung nag-tour kami. Mas lalo kami naging close.

"Nakakapagod physically, but it never felt like work for the four of us kasi tutulungan.

"Nag-aalalayan kami kasi wala naman kami mga glam team, nag-a-assist. Kami-kami lang… parang mas naging close kami as magkakapatid."

Yeng felt that she found a family in the industry.

She said, "Yung pagkakaibigan po talaga, yung meron kang kapatid sa industriya na hindi lang sa trabaho. Kahit off-cam, alam mong maaasahan mo.

"Yun talaga yung sobrang saya kasi siguro nakikita nila lahat nung first Divas concert, yung isa na nakikita talaga ng mga tao yung rapport natin, yung pagtutulungan.

"Wala sa amin yung kompetisyon na parang hihilain yung isa pababa."

Angeline agreed, "Totoo po yun. At siguro madalas nakikita po ng mga tao kaming apat si KZ, Ate Kyla, Yeng bilang magkatrabaho every time nasa stage, pero ang hindi nila alam kung gaano kami talaga nagtutulungan.

"Alam niyo po, sa totoo lang, itong tatlong ito, hindi na malayo sa puso ko talaga… tinuring ko na sila kapatid.

"Every time na meron akong hindi naiintindihan sa buhay ko, hindi ako nahihiyang mag-open up sa kanilang tatlo kahit na masyado nang personal. Ganun din naman sila sa akin.

"Saka ang pinakagusto ko pinagsamahan naming apat ay yung nabigyan kami ng chance na maka-tour sa ibang bansa.

"Sabi nga namin, sana mabigyan kami ng chance na matuloy kahit next year."

As for Kyla, she considers her fellow Divas as her source of inspiration.

She remarked, "Silang lahat excellent sila, e, and ang nakakatuwa sa amin, magkaka-iba kami.

"Nag-e-excel kami sa [iba’t-ibang genre].

"Si Ange, grabe yung range. Si Yeng din, grabe din yung range, pero yung angas saka pagdating sa rock, siya nangingibabaw dun. Na-i-inspire ako na parang, uy, ang saya naman nila. Gusto ko rin mag-excel.

"Si KZ, halimaw sa stage. Kapag nagpe-perform siya, ginigiba niya yung buong venue...

"Trine-treasure ko talaga, more than the friendship and anu-ano pa, na sa kanilang tatlo, nai-inspire ako sa kanila."
