Party Pilipinas takes to the streets, and goes freestyle this Sunday, September 12.
Freestyle, freestyle rap or freestyling commonly refers to rapping without any prepared lyrics. According to freestylerap.org, the rap can be performed with musical instruments or a capella.
Set to perform on stage this Sunday are the infamous open mic rappers from the streets of Tondo, Manila, together with the show’s homegrown young rap royalties Elmo and Arkin Magalona. Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown host Richard Gutierrez joins a Step Up-inspired number together with Mark Herras, Rochelle Pangilinan, and the rest of Sayaw Pilipinas crew.
True to its Freestyle theme, Party Pilipinas’ "Big Four" explores different boundaries —Jaya displays her rap and dance chops; Ogie Alcasid jams with Pinoy Rock’s favorite front men; Janno Gibbs taps Kapuso beauties for his special birthday production number; and Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez together with Kyla and Rachelle Ann Go engage in a vocal showdown.
Young viewers are in for a treat from Kapuso "tween" sensations Bea Binene, Barbie Forteza, Jhake Vargas, and Joshua Dionisio; plus a sneak peek on the conclusion of the Elmo-Julie Ann love story as depicted in the short film Red Mask directed by independent filmmaker Avid Liongoren.
Another must-see on the show is La Diva’s special production number dubbed as "Viva La Diva." Grazilda lead star Glaiza de Castro will also grace the show together with cast members Geoff Eigenman, Rio Locsin, Joel Torre, and Cherie Gil.
And faithful still to its Freestyle concept, the show cooked up segments featuring the hits of Parokya ni Edgar and RiverMaya, plus a special treatment on Eraserheads hits never done before on television.
With director Rico Gutierrez at the helm, watch for Party Pilipinas Freestyle on Sunday, September 12, right after Kapuso Movie Festival on GMA-7.
