I saw an emotional Yeng Constantino wiping her tears of joy in the dark while watching the musical “Ako si Josephine” for the first time. It was revealed last September 6 that the singer-composer who’s celebrating her tenth year in showbiz did not attend any rehearsal prior to the press preview that night. No wonder she was overwhelmed by her emotions that night. To support her, Yeng was accompanied by her husband Yan Asuncion.

Ako Si Josephine, a production from the makers of the hit Rak of Aegis, is a mix of kilig, laughter, and music appreciation.  While watching the musical, one would realize that in the past ten years of Yeng’s presence in the business, she has already contributed a lot of quality OPM songs (songs that are so sticky and LSS-worthy). Some of the songs featured are Salamat, Time In, Jeepney Love Story, Chinito, Hawak Kamay, and Ikaw. The songs and the interesting story that revolves around the essence of music were brought to life by talented theater performers. Those that stood out were, of course, the lead performers Via Antonio (Josephine), seasoned comedian Jon Santos (Monotomia, the villain), Joaquin Valdes (Boss/Sir, Chinito), and Teetin Villanueva (Helena).

Note: Breakthrough primetime actor JC Santos of Till I Met You was spotted in the event as he showed support for girlfriend Teetin.
