Fans and supporters of the one and only Megastar were in high spirits during her recent concert titled Songs of My Heart: The Mega Birthday Concert at the Araneta Coliseum. The TV special was aired last Sunday, January 11, on ABS-CBN.
Thousands of Sharonians trooped to the Big Dome and fell in line just to watch their idol and her special guests. The Megastar went onstage singing her opening song medley of signature songs "Bituin Walang Ningning," "Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas" and "Pangarap na Bituin."
The shouts and cheers continued as the birthday girl and Piolo Pascual sang "Misty Glass Window" and "You're My You." The so-called Streisand Medley was the production number of the Megastar along with her two "adopted" champion daughters, Rachelle Ann Go and Sarah Geronimo. Later on, Sharon had a duet with Journey vocalist Arnel Pineda to the tune of "Open Arms." Pupil vocalist Ely Buendia rocked it out with Sharon singing the Pinoy classic song "Tuwing Umuulan at Kapiling Ka." Concertgoers then danced to the beat of the Star Magic talents' lively performance.
Shawie was really surprised as special guests niece Ciara Sotto, close friend Gino Padilla, actors Joem Bascon and Sam Milby, one of Sharon's biggest influences Kuh Ledesma, close friend Vina Morales, singer Zsa Zsa Padilla and veteran artist Lorna Tolentino joined her on stage one by one.
Sharon offered the concert to her loyal fans and loved ones for their never ending love and support for the past years.
The actress shared, "I have been very proud of the Sharonians because they never gave me anything to be ashamed about. I'm honored to have these people who have become my fans and friends."
When asked about a possible movie with Gabby Concepcion, "I really want to. I'm a big fan of the team-up. I'm sure Gabby is too. It's a team up that everybody loves. I have no reason not to do a movie with Gabby except for the most important reason, I don't want my family to be disturbed. I can already imagine the scenario. I can't put my husband and family through that. Maybe someday but my priority is peace of mind."
With her highly anticipated performance, eldest daughter KC Concepcion did not disappoint fans. Viewers were mesmerized with the special "seesaw" performance that marks a first in Philippine television.
TFC subcribers and Kapamilyas abroad should look out for the Megastar's upcoming U.S. tour. Watch for Megastar's movie with Richard Gomez as well as her movie with Vilma Santos, which is already in the planning stage.
