Spanning Three Generations

Loisa, the youngest among them marks her 18th birthday with her first ever concert; while Daryl stages “Daryl sONGs,” a one-night musical concert singing a mix of his original hits and covers; and pop icon Jaya showcases her distinctive singing voice and accomplishments in the music industry with her concert “No Boundaries.”

Putting them together in one blog post is a challenge. Each artist and performances have unique characteristics, I just focused on the experience, dynamics and little discoveries.

There is no doubt that they’ve rocked their own shows. Coupled with remarkable contemporary artistry, they also inspired each and every individual who came and watched their shows to continue to believe in Filipino talents and simultaneously impact everyone regardless of age and generations.

Loisa, Daryl and Jaya represented three generation of artists, honing their unique sound in the process while basking into a fascinating journey of music-making for the love of their fans and artistry. Together, they’ve shared their love for music in one live music stage.

This is the first concert they’ve team-up together that features OPM female dominance, staying power and the desire to keep making music. Alternative-rock icons Aia De Leon, Barbie Almalbis, and Kitchie Nadal are women of rock who sang their hearts out, played OPM favorites, and everything the crowd wanted them to perform live.

The recently held concert was packed with great news, good vibes and amazing moments — Kitchie shared the joy of being an expectant mother, Barbie showed a video montage of her kids as she sang a song she’s written for them, while Aia serenaded the audience with her song “Sundo” accompanied only by her acoustic guitar. The concert was also attended by singer-songwriter Ebe Dancel who collaborated with Barbie for the song, “Wag Ka Nang Umiyak.”
