Morissette and Tanya Manalang, two of today’s brightest female stars onstage, are set to stage their first major concert together entitled Platinum: World’s Favorite Hit Songs Live! at Resorts World Manila’s (RWM) Newport Performing Arts Theater (NPAT) on May 6, 8:00 p.m.
Both young, beautiful and blessed with voices that have awed audiences from around the globe, Morissette and Tanya have accomplished so much in their young careers than most artists today.
Morissette first made waves after winning TV5’s Star Factor in 2012. With her vocal range that covers Wicked’s “Defying Gravity” to Disney’s “Let It Go” to Heart’s “What About Love”, Morissette rises up to her title as one truly exceptional star.
Born and raised in Cebu, Morissette has reaped awards from the PMPC Star Awards, the M.O.R. Pinoy Music Awards, the National Consumer Affairs Foundation’s Seal of Excellence Awards, the Wish 107.5 Music Awards, and has performed in sold out concerts nationwide.
Her cover of Little Mix’s “Secret Love Songs” registered over 35 million views on YouTube sealing her reputation as a true star with a wide following.
This time around, Morissette expands her repertoire as she shares the stage with another headliner, Tanya Manalang.
Tanya’s role of Kim in Cameron McKintosh’s 2014 revival of Miss Saigon at the West End polished her craft as an actress and marked her as one of the royalties of Philippines theater.
Starting at an early age, Tanya has performed in such musical productions as Godspell, Whistle Down The Wind, Footloose, In The Heights, KAOS, The Sound of Music, and The King And I prior to landing an alternate role as Kim in Miss Saigon.
Last year, Tanya landed the lead female roles in acclaimed local musicals Rak of Aegis and Tick, Tick… Boom!, and shared the stage with rocker/thespian Mig Ayesa in RWM’s twinbill offering Curtains Up!, which awed audiences with a repertoire of hit songs from Broadway and West End musicals.
Joining the two ladies as special guest is OPM president, singer, songwriter and actor Mr. Ogie Alcasid who has 12 gold, three platinum, and another three double-platinum records to his name.
Platinum: World’s Favorite Hit Songs Live! promises a night of chart toppers from Tagalog ballads to London hits and Hollywood theme songs courtesy of Morissette, Tanya and Ogie together with the rhythm ensemble of the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Rodel Colmenar and over-all direction by Freddie Santos.
Tickets for the concert are now available at the RWM Box Office and all Ticketworld outlets. Visit www.rwmanila.com or call the Tourist/Visitor Hotline (632) 908-8833 for more details.
