Hailed as an institution in the entertainment industry, Philippine Megastar Sharon Cuneta warmed hearts of hundreds at the Centennial Concert Hall Sunday evening.
Sharon’s 40th anniversary show brought the house down to a journey to memory lane with hit songs such as P.S. I love you, To Love Again and MR DJ among others.
The two and a half show highlighted a selection of Sharon’s most loved songs starting from when she was first launched to show business at the age of 12.
Audience never stop giggling as Sharon shared, with a great sense of humor, the many aspects of her personal life that included heart break in first marriage and other exes, growing with a Mayor father, her children, Senator husband and her brother running for a Mayor.
“I am happy to join Mama in this concert. I admire her a lot. She is a very good singer. She is a living legend.” KC mused.
At one point in the concert, Sharon and KC became emotional as they talk about their special mother-daughter bond. Sharon had KC when she was only 19.
After singing her hit “Sundo”, KC said she hopes to come back in Winnipeg to perform again. “But I hope it will be the summer time”, she smiled as she also credited the hospitality of Winnipegers in making it sure they had gloves, tuque and warm winter coat as soon as they stepped out of the airport. It was minus 30ish windchill when they came.
Lourdes also saw Sharon when she came to Winnipeg 15 yeas ago but was unable to get a photo with her. This time, she did not stop until she got a selfie with the megastar despite tight security.
Sharon wrapped up the evening with her finale song “Kung Maputi na ang Buhok ko”.
Concert producers led by Mabuhay TV, Sugarblooms and Cake, Divine Mortage and Abot Kaya Frozen and non-frozen foods surprised Sharon with an anniversary cake.
Evening emcees were CKJS’ Donna Natividad-Arenas and Lendyll Soriano.
