It’s the most vivid, crisp & crystal, penetrating voice that a blogger had heard and watched in the many solo concerts he had seen over the years. The voice just came-out naturally, without any great stress and the mouth of the singer just opens-up so little. But the impact was there. The feeling. The soul.

As he sang the old pop Filipino song Araw-Gabi (one of the last songs he sang in his Pre-Valentine Concert entitled “Come Sing With Me”, held last Feb. 11, 2015 at Teatrino Promenade in Greenhills), the boyish charms of this singer further exceeded into random heights, turning into a full-grown man with a great angst of deliverance. There’s a soul that speaks within him, through his songs, messages were conveyed.

This is one young man, one outstanding singer that could squeeze so much ingredients for a good night ‘dish’ of songs, spiels and magical feeling.

His voice was embracing, as if hugging you into the coldness of the night- giving you warmth, reassurance … and LOVE.

HIS NAME: MICHAEL PANGILINAN.

His opening number duet with Morisette Amon, with another Pinoy song Pagdating ng Panahon provided enough romantic mood that highlighted the rest of the night for a great Pre-Valentine concert.

The great Ms. Malu Barry, the special guest of the concert, sang with fabulous strength and elegance. Her rendition of Karen Carpenter’s classic song- “A Song For You”, became so enigmatic that a blogger watching almost shed to tears. Ms. Barry had not lost the “magic”.

Minus the comedy bar-antics of two gay singers, in fairness, though, they provided great laughs, the concert could have been at par with award-winning concert acts. Because Michael Pangilinan knew how to steal hearts and create fascination.

One of the best parts of this Pre-Valentine concert was the sudden appearance of Mr. Martin Nievera in an impromptu duet with Michael. It provided lightness of feeling that created a rainbow of great expectations via Michael.

Singers are born, not made. This has been one of the lasting thoughts from a blogger watching from the windows of his being.

Michael Pangilinan is among them.

In an angelic feeling of affections and care, a soul never ceases to leave. It always shows himself wherever a friend remembers…

And he sees him in person of this singer named Michael.

It’s like a soul that speaks and bonds…

in an eternal commitment of imaginary ideas and hopes-

 

FOREVER.
