For the first time ever, Star Power’s first female superstar Angeline Quinto headlined her very own concert, Patuloy Ang Pangarap at the SM Sky Dome yesterday, July 15.
It was a sold-out show attended by celebrities including Star Power finalists K-La Rivera and Akiko Solon, and Charice Pempengco’s mother, Raquel.
The show was well-attended by fans; some even flew in from other countries like Singapore and USA.
Angeline, 21, did not disappoint, proving to everyone her star power.
She belted out songs from her self-titled debut album under Star Records, which went gold, a few weeks after its release last March.
She performed "’Wag Mo Akong Iwan Mag-isa," "Mahiwaga (the theme song from ABS-CBN’s 100 Days To Heaven)," and "Kunin Mo Na Ang Lahat Sa Akin."
The latter is the theme song of the ABS-CBN primetime series, Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, which stars multi-awarded actor Coco Martin whom Angeline admires. (CLICK HERE to read related article)
In the middle of her song, the actor surprised her at the venue, passing through the crowd, and even gave her a bouquet of flowers.
To the delight of the audience, she changed the lyrics of her song from "Kunin mo na ang lahat sa akin, huwag lang ang aking mahal" to "Kunin mo na ang lahat sa akin, huwag lang si Coco Martin."
At the end of the performance, Coco congratulated Angeline for her first solo concert and gave her a necklace.
Angeline also paid tribute to local music icons Zsa Zsa Padilla, Lani Misalucha, Regine Velasquez, and Sharon Cuneta.
She also performed duets with Richard Poon (they did a jazz version of "Umbrella"), Sam Milby (they sang the current pop hit "Need You Now"), and Piolo Pascual (who sang "Kailangan Kita").
Angeline called Piolo "Papa P" and asked the ultimate heartthrob to call her "Mama A."
REGINE VELASQUEZ. Angeline also performed with Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez, who sang in public for the first time after taking a break from her weekly show Party Pilipinas, due to health risks brought about by her pregnancy.
Regine said she did not want to miss her "anak’s" first solo concert and insisted that she be part of the show.
In fact, she even asked Angeline to come over to her house to rehearse the songs "Ikaw," "Pangako," and "Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw" where she reportedly gifted Angeline with a pair of white gold earrings.
In the middle of performing "Ikaw," Regine felt the baby kick inside her tummy and said, "Ay, sumisipa."
Angeline became teary-eyed when Regine congratulated her and gave her advice on how to handle her newfound fame.
The self-confessed fan of the songbird thanked her idol for her support and for the jewelry, adding: "Balita ko po may kasama pa daw ’tong necklace."
Regine laughed and said, "Hindi ’no! Manganganak pa ako. Kaya nga ako nandito para mangutang sa ’yo, e."
Truly, it was a successful evening for Angeline who capped the show with tears of joy as she sang her hit single, "Patuloy Ang Pangarap."
