X MARKED THE SPOT

It seemed just like yesterday when we were using the X as a temporary title for my 10th anniversary concert. I still can’t snap myself to believing that the concert is over and done! And hell yeah! It was one great evening!

Coming up with a concert is no joke. Talk about the sleepless nights and the constant headaches caused by too much brainstorming. Not to mention being paranoid all the time so as not to get sick! Phew! I must’ve have boosted up the sales of Berocca during the last months of preparation!

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. I allow myself to be immersed into the preparation of the concert. I am not the type of artist who just sits down and waits for everything to be spoon-fed… the songs to learn, the concept, the stage design, the outfits, the rehearsal schedules, etc. Everything went through me! And boy! It wasn’t easy! And I have the stress patches on my head to prove it!

But all the stress and hard work were all worth it!

The evening started a bit late due to the fact that it was a Friday and it was payday. An hour after the said starting time of 8pm, the band started to play its first note and everything flowed smoothly. There were a few hitches but what the heck. Human error. We’re not computers. We make mistakes. It’s just a matter of how you make it look as if it was intended.

As much as I’d like to do a run down of what happened in the concert, I’m not allowed to… yet! Hmmmm…  a repeat?? Maybe… hopefully. All I can say, that night, I felt so much love from everyone who was there.  The people who came were the ones who really considered me important. Despite the heavy traffic, they arrived… and watched. They made time for me… and for that I am truly thankful.

I want to thank my producers and everyone who worked on X. I really hope that we do more work in the future (minus the ones who just gave us headaches LOL).

To my family who flew all the way from Iloilo, Cebu and other places, thank you!

To those who bought tickets, thank you! You saved lives!

I always say this… and I’ll say this again… “As long as you are there, willing to listen to my voice, I will continue to sing for you.”
