The reformatting of ABS-CBN's ASAP will finally happen this Sunday, November 18.
The 23-year-old Sunday variety show will now be known as ASAP Natin 'To!
According to the Kapamilya Network, the all-new ASAP will "celebrate stories of hope, love and inspiration from Kapamilyas all over the world."
For its opening salvo, this Sunday's episode will feature a couple from Surigao whose dreams of getting married was put on hold because of a devastating accident.
Viewers will get to see the couple married live on air during the ASAP Natin ‘To! episode.
Former GMA-7 talent Regine Velasquez-Alcasid will join other ASAP mainstays such as Gary Valenciano, Piolo Pascual, Sarah Geronimo, Daniel Padilla, Ogie Alcasid, Moira, Luis Manzano, and other Kapamilya stars.
There will be a segment featuring ordinary Filipinos with Kapamilya stars.
Iñigo Pascual’s viral hit “Dahil Sa’yo,” celebrates music and life of the Zumbalolas from Cebu, the dancing jail warden from Iwahig, Puerto Princesa, Palawan who will jam with Iñigo, Darren Espanto, Jeremy Glinoga, Kyle Echarri, and Maymay Entrata and Edward Barbers.
Sarah Geronimo will get to interview the fathers of the TNT boys, composed of Mackie Empuerto, Francis Concepcion, and Keifer Sanchez to know their dreams for their children. The fathers share how much they love the boys no matter what. They will conclude the segment with a singing collaboration from Sarah and the TNT Boys.
Viewers also get to meet three Kapamilyas whose lives were touched by the talent of Asia’s Songbird: a girl whose father idolizes Regine so much that he did the same training of partly submerging his daughter inside a drum full of water while singing to strengthen her lungs and vocal power; a promodizer who never tires of singing Regine’s songs; and a power belter from Dubai who made her dreams come true with her own renditions of Regine’s songs.
Regine will showcase her singing prowess along with singing champions Angeline Quinto, KZ Tandingan, Jona, Frenchie Dy, Elha Nympha, Janine Berdin, Jed Madela, Marcelito Pomoy, Jason Dy, Mitoy Yonting, Noven Belleza, and Erik Santos.
To culminate the show, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and Sarah Geronimo will have an explosive number on the ASAP Natin ‘To! stage.
