Starting last Friday, July 17, Warner Music Philippines makes us feel less alone in quarantine as it kicks off its virtual concert series, starting with easy-listening classics from the Christian Bautista Live! album. Access to our music idols’ concert archives are now just a few clicks away.
Released in 2007 by the record label, Christian Bautista‘s live album was recorded overnight during a by-invite set at Teatrino, Greenhills, backed by basic rhythm section, a grand piano and a string section. The album is composed of twenty revival tracks from the ’70s up to the ’90s including “Got to Believe in Magic,” “Fixing a Broken Heart,” and “I Could Not Ask for More.”
Shortly after his success in the Philippines, Christian Bautista broke through Indonesia’s music scene in 2004 with his hit, “The Way You Look at Me.”
Because Indonesian fans adored Christian so much, he started guesting in shows around Asia and working with other foreign artists. Among his famous collaborators are American Idol alum Jessica Sanchez, Korean group One Way, Indonesian Idol grand champion Delon, Bunga Citra Lestari (Indonesia), Baby M (Japan), Noryn Azis (Malaysia), and Kewei Tay (Singapore). The Asia’s Romantic Balladeer has also performed with Josh Groban, Boyzone, and starred on Singaporean TV musical The Kitchen Musical in 2011 with Karylle.
This month, Warner Music Philippines will begin uploading archived footages of their best-selling hits for fans who sorely miss live music. Future editions of this pandemic concert series will also include a Rico Blanco Live concert compilation album.
