Music legends Melissa Manchester and David Pomeranz performed together in an enchanting night of love songs last April 6, 2016 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Asia’s Mr. Crooner Arthur Manuntag opens the stage with some great classics and jazz. He sung different musical impressions from influential jazz personalities like Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Michael Bolton, Shirley Bassey and Ray Charles. Check out the performance below from this video courtesy of Arthur Manuntag.
Melissa Manchester and David Pomeranz’s first appearance onstage was a duet performance of “When I Fall in Love,” a song originally by Nat King Cole.
American singer and composer David Pomeranz showed off his enormous love songs namely “Got to Believe in Magic,” “Undying Admiration,” “Tryin’ to Get the Feeling Again,” “Crazy Beautiful,” and a snippet of his “Chaplin: A Life. In Concert.” The audience can’t help but sing to his classics “If You Walked Away,” “On This Day,” “The Old Songs” and “King and Queen of Hearts.”
While American singer-songwriter and actress Melissa Manchester pays tribute to Marvin Hamlisch through her signature song, “Through the Eyes of Love.” It was a trip down memory lane for all of us as we listened to “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” “Midnight Blue, “I’ll Never Say Goodbye,” “Big Light,” “You Gotta Love the Life” and Grammy Award-winning song “You Should Hear How She Talks About You.” She also sang “You Gotta Love the Life” from her latest album released in 2015.
The night ended with their version of the song “Whenever I Call You Friend,” a song written by Melissa Manchester and Kenny Loggins, which the latter recorded for his 1978 album “Nightwatch.” They’ve shared sufficient stories of themselves, their song writing journey, experiences and artistry.
And for the last time, another duet has been performed. We are blessed to hear their collaboration for the song “Born For You.” Video below courtesy of Mon Jahrenel.
