After their recent trip to Singapore for the taping of their latest Kapuso romantic-drama My Destiny, rumored couple Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez have another opportunity to work closely together as they gear up for an exciting concert titled “Kapusong Pinoy sa L.A.”
The concert, organized by GMA Pinoy TV, the flagship international channel of GMA Network, in cooperation with Polaris Media and Marketing, will be held on September 27 at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, California.
Following the success of their onscreen pairing in several projects, Carla and Tom are sure to thrill their fans abroad who ardently followed the story of Lally and Vincent in the groundbreaking, international hit series My Husband’s Lover, and the brewing romance between Grace and Matthew in My Destiny.
Carla is delighted that she has been given another opportunity to meet her fans in the United States. “During the US tour of My Husband’s Lover last year, we were given such a warm welcome by our kababayans,” she recalls. “The support we’ve been receiving from our fellow Filipinos, especially those outside the Philippines, is very heartwarming and inspiring.”
“This is our way of saying thank you to all those who continue to support us,” shares Tom. “We promise to put on a good show for our fans abroad.”
The concert also features some of the hottest Kapuso stars seen on GMA Pinoy TV – Asia’s Pop Sweetheart Julie Anne San Jose, Kapuso teen star Miguel Tanfelix and actor-comedian Betong Sumaya.
Nine-time Platinum Award winner Julie Anne San Jose, who just launched her newest album “Deeper” this June, will showcase her vocal prowess with a repertoire of today’s hit songs. Julie Anne, who regularly appears in GMA’s variety program Sunday All Stars, is one of the most sought-after performers in GMA’s international shows, recently headlining a Philippine Independence Day Celebration concert in Kuwait earlier this year. “It is always exciting to be given the chance to meet our fans from all over the world,” she expresses. “I would like to invite all our Kapuso viewers in L.A. to watch this concert because we have prepared an exciting show for them.”
One of today’s young actors on the rise, Miguel Tanfelix, who topbills GMA’s top-rating primetime series Niño, joins this stellar group of artists in his first-ever international event. A product of Starstruck Kids, the talented teen is primed to astound his fans abroad with his dancing skills. Miguel is looking forward to his first trip to the United States. “I am grateful that Niño is successful not just in the Philippines but in other countries,” he says. “This will be my first time in the US and I can’t wait to see our loyal Kapuso fans in L.A.”
Moreover, actor-comedian Betong Sumaya’s comedic performance is sure to elicit loads of laughter as he portrays his popular character Antonietta from the country’s longest running comedy show Bubble Gang, where he is a mainstay. Like Miguel, this trip is also Betong’s first visit to the United States. “Excited talaga ako na makasama dito sa Kapusong Pinoy sa L.A. kaya pagdating ko roon hahalik talaga ako sa lupa. Maraming maaasahang kantahan, sayawan, at siyempre tawanan ang mga Kapuso natin doon [I’m excited to be part of Kapusong Pinoy sa L.A. that’s why when I get there, I’m really going to kiss the ground. Our Kapuso viewers can expect a lot of singing, dancing and, of course, laughing during the concert.],” enthuses Betong.
Kapuso fans abroad who wish to join in the fun and excitement at the “Kapusong Pinoy sa L.A.” concert may post their messages, tweets and photos with the hashtag #KapusongPinoyLA.
