Brian McFadden serenades Filipino fans for his first-ever solo show in the Philippines

The Irish singer performs songs which are heavy on Nostalgia in front of his 
army of loyal fans at the New Frontier Theater last November 17, Sunday.

It's all about throwback music this 2019, as former Westlife member Brian
McFadden performs in Davao and Manila last November 16 and 17 for his first-ever solo show in Manila.

It was an enjoyable and intimate Sunday night filled will brand new music
and a couple of classic Westlife songs - performed by Brian McFadden - who’s
been here in the country for three times now; during the Boyzlife tour
with Keith McDuffie, the Boyzone Farewell Show at the Mall of Asia Arena,
and his recent solo at the New Frontier Theatre featuring a duet with
Idol Philippines’ grand winner, Zephanie.

Zephanie performed a cover of “Kilometro” and “Isa Pang Araw”, and
showcase her vocal prowess in her winning piece “Pangarap Kong Pangarap Mo.”
She left the audience wanting for more, as her voice is such a breath of fresh air, clean, filled with such clarity and emotions.

As soon as she finished her set, it was followed by a montage of McFadden's journey throughout his music career. Fans were screaming, and he started off
with “When You're Looking Like That” and “World of Our Own.”


So much about Brian's solo career has changed since his boyband days with
Westlife, and much better through the way he lights up any music venues, with just himself and his guitar. The night was made even sweeter when he performed Westlife's top hits such as "Swear It Again", "Mandy", "Queen of my Heart", "My Love" and a stripped-down version of "Flying Without Wings" - which by far was the most impressive performance he did that night - no band, no-frills, just him, his guitar, and his army of loyal fans singing along with him.


He also performed "These Arms of Mine", "Champagne and Wine" and a
lovely duet with Zephanie for "Almost Here."

But as soon as we thought his set was over, he was back on stage for a boyband medley. He did "Everybody" (Backstreet's Back), "If Ya Gettin 'Down", "What Makes You Beautiful", "Bye Bye Bye", "Everybody Get Up", "One Love", and "Never Forget."

Thank you to EKG Productions for the opportunity to cover this
memorable show.

Today Spotify, the world’s most popular global audio streaming subscription service, is officially revealing “Wrapped.” This annual end of year campaign announces the leading artists, albums, songs, playlists, and podcasts that defined how 248 million people around the world listened to and discovered music and podcasts in 2019. 

Spotify can reveal that December Avenue is the Philippines’ most streamed artist this year.

The Most Streamed Song in the Philippines this year is an OPM collaboration between December Avenue and Moira Della Torre, - Kung Di Rin Lang Ikaw.

Billie Eilish, the second Most Streamed Artist globally had an earthshaking breakout year amassing 6 billion streams globally this year alone. Her album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? is also 2019’s Most Streamed Album of the year on Spotify, marking the first time a female-led album has topped “Wrapped.”

Globally, the year’s Most Streamed Song is from the duo that took the Northern Hemisphere summer by storm: “Señorita” by Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello with more than 1 billion streams, followed closely by Eilish’s hit track “bad guy” with more than 990 million streams. “Sunflower,” Malone’s collaboration with Swae Lee from the film Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse is the year’s third Most Streamed Track.

International stage actor and Pinoy Pride bearer Gerald Santos headlines in one of the biggest concerts for this year, UNLIMITED, A CONCERT FOR A CAUSE, which is slated on December 13, 2019, 8PM at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.

An initial concert offering of LE’ POSH Entertainment Production, this concert endeavor is a coming together of world class Filipino artists who all have a soft spot for the plight and welfare of our OFWs and their loved ones.

Santos avers, “I was an OFW myself. Being in UK for 2 years as part of the Miss Saigon UK Tour stint made me realize how our kababayans, the feelings and sentiments of the many OFWs I had the opportunity to intermingle with. I know how difficult it is to be away from your family and with this concert, it is my prayer that it brings cheers to the OFWs who are home during the holiday season and their families who will join and watch it.”

Joining Gerald on the concert stage are OPM icon Nyoy Volante, fast-rising star Kyline Alcantara, Singaporean theatre veteran Rachel Chan, The Clash Finalist Garret Bolden and Rock Legend Jett Pangan.

LE’POSH Entertainment Production teams up with other government and non-government agencies for this concert to alleviate the plight of our OFWs.

The concert is written and directed by Antonino Rommel Ramilo, with concept by Pierre Hernandez. Musical director is Jason Abram Cabato.

Tickets are available at ( 8891-9999 ).
