STAR Magic’s brightest stars were gathered for one event: Star Magic 25: A Grand Celebration in Singapore. It was held last October 29 at the Zepp @ BigBox at Venture Avenue in Singapore.
Fans were excited to see their favorite celebrities like Eric Nicolas, Piolo Pascual, Jericho Rosales, Maja Salvador, Enchong Dee, Jed Madela, Iñigo Pascual, KZ Tandingan, Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber, Eric Nicolas, Kathryn Bernardo, and Daniel Padilla.
Star Magic 25: A Grand Celebration in Singapore was part of Star Magic’s year-long celebration of 25 years of honing Filipino talents.
Heating up the dance floor
A fiery performance with the Philippines’ own dance floor royalties Maja Salvador and Enchong Dee. Ultimate Dance Floor Princess sang and danced to “Cheap Thrills” by Sia. They both performed their original hit singles like Enchong’s “Chinito Problems”, and Maja’s “Dahan-Dahan” and “Haplos”.
Songs dedicated to OFW
Jed Madela and KZ Tandingan sang their hearts out for their audience. The crowd was in awe when Jed Madela performed the classic hits like Stand By Me, Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin, I Believe and Go the Distance, which the lyrics somehow speak of the Overseas Filipinos’ journey.
Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan, on the other hand, performed songs in different genres ranging from rap to ballad. She did her own rendition of Gloc 9’s original hit Sumayaw Ka, and her hit single Mahal Ko o Mahal Ako.
Kilig is in the air
Experience love one more time with MayWard and KathNiel.
Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber (popularly known as MayWard) performed their single Baliw and Toni Gonzaga’s Mahal Kita Kasi for the Singapore crowd. Barber also got everyone cracked up when he tried to deliver his message in straight Filipino albeit with a German slang. He told the crowd, “Para sa inyo, Tagalugin ko ito — umaapaw po talaga ang puso ko sa pasasalamat (I will try my best to say this in Filipino – my heart is filled with gratitude because of everyone here)”.
After that, The Philippines’ Premier Love Team, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel) made the crowd kilig. Bernardo first performed the song Sit Still Look Pretty, and then Padilla joined her onstage, and together, they performed the theme song of their recent film with the same title, Can’t Help Falling In Love.
First time in Star Magic tour, Teen Singing Sensation Inigo Pascual serenaded the crowd with his hit single Dahil Sa’yo, and Luis Fonsi’s Despacito.
Of course, our favorite hearthrobs, Piolo Pascual and Jericho Rosales made the audience swoon. Rosales had everyone singing with his hit single Pusong Ligaw, and Hotdog’s Manila. After that, Piolo Pascual appeared onstage singing Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, and Kailangan Kita. They did a duet and sang the song Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen.
The Star Magic artists performed an encore to the Star Magic 25th anniversary theme song Ikaw ang Magic ng Buhay Ko. Not only that, they gave their fans the chance to have a photo opportunity.
