Veteran singer Lani Misalucha promised to put up a show worthy of Las Vegas for her upcoming solo concert “La Nightingale” on December 6 at the Araneta Coliseum.
Misalucha, a veteran performer at the US gaming capital for several years, also vowed to incorporate new material in her major concert, which will also feature Arnel Pineda, Jed Madela, G-Force and other surprise guests.
“We will be putting new songs. Alam niyo naman ako, when I do shows, iba-ibang genre ang maririnig niyo. Whenever I do shows I incorporate classical music,” she said at a press conference on Wednesday.
“When it comes to production, we would put a Las Vegas feel in our production. May similarity, hindi man mapantayan, ang goal namin medyo may Cirque du Soleil ang isa sa mga songs doon. ‘Yun ang binubuo namin,” she said, referring to the iconic modern circus troupe that is also a mainstay in Las Vegas.
“I really just want to concentrate in singing pero let’s see kung ano ang magagawa kong mga productions here when it comes to dancing and yung patiwarik,” she added.
Accompanying Misalucha in the concert is the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Gerald Salonga.
“Kami ni Gerard maraming beses na kaming nagkasama pero, kung hindi ako nagkakamali, ito ang first time ko with ABS-CBN Philharmonic. So I am looking forward to this event na makakasama ko sila,” she said.
The Araneta concert is directed by Paul Basinillo with Louie Ocampo as musical director.
Misalucha is hoping that more Filipino artists would be given a chance to perform in Las Vegas.
“Sa Las Vegas kasi kami nakatira. Marami doong banda, performers. Sana mayroon pang ibang Pinoy na magkaroon ng chance na mag-perform doon na araw araw ‘yung show,” she added. (MNS)
