Thousands Of UAE People Sing Along With 1MX Abu Dhabi Artists
For the love of music, thousands of Filipinos from different emirates have converged in Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Arena for the most-anticipating Filipino music festival this year – the 1MX Abu Dhabi 2018.
The almost 4-hour show in the Capital kicked off with the talented Maris Racal. Performing some of her original songs and covers, the young lady did not disappoint the audience with her being a versatile artist.
Wearing a sparkly jumpsuit, Maris then got a hold of her guitar and unleashed her Taylor Swift aura.
Her on-screen partner Inigo Pascual then took over the stage. His intro was a medley of different upbeat songs to the tune of Maroon 5’s Girl’s Like You.
While the crowd (mostly composed of women) can’t contain the ‘kilig’ that the young singer was unconsciously serving, he then belted popular OPM songs including Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko, Ako’y Sayo at Ika’y Akin Lamang, and Umuwi Ka Na Baby, among others.
He also played his new single Lumang Tugtugin for her fans in the country. Inigo then rendered a special song to his mother. The teary-eyed Inigo sang Mahal Na Mahal Kita.
Marnigo fans cannot be tamed inside the arena when the duo performed Camilla Cabello’s Havana.
Inigo cannot leave the stage without singing his very admired song Dahil Sayo.
The next performer was warmly welcomed by her fans although he has been in the country for a couple of times already. Moira performed Titibo-tibo and her voice is literally an eargasm! While singing some of her famous songs such as Tagu-Taguan, Malaya and her cover Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko.
Her performance deserved more than a standing ovation. The shriek went wilder when she and her fiancée sang Tagpuan together.
As expected, KZ Tandingan brought the arena down with her amazing voice. Her overall performances proved that she deserved to be recognized internationally.
Special guest Maja Salvador did not let everyone down with her talent. She sings well and undoubtedly dances as if she cannot be stopped unless you turn off the music.
Aegis’ performance was one of the most awaited one because of their iconic songs. Aside from singing their original songs, they also performed some of their songs in their new album that is already available online.
