Anne Curtis conquers Oro airwaves-A A +A
Monday, May 7, 2012
“ANNEBISYOSA: No Other Concert Tour” at the LimKetKai Atrium held over the weekend proved to be a great success as thousands of people were entertained by actress Anne Curtis Smith.
Some concert goers wearing their Anne Curtis-inspired wardrobe even had to travel to Cagayan de Oro just to watch how “Annebisyosa,” as what Anne calls herself, would perform on stage in her not-so-beautiful voice.
The wary crowd cheered as “Annebisyosa” made her grand entrance wearing her glittery gown as she sang her own version of Rhianna’s song “Only Girl.” She then did her version of J-Lo’s “Dance the Night Away,” a very high pitched song that Anne “annemazingly” sang well.
Anne’s sweet and beautiful face plus her fashion trendy clothes added more glamour to the concert, which truly made her one of the most idolized artists in the industry today.
The actress also performed some of Beyonce’s songs, “Telephone” by Lady Gaga, “Firework” by Katy Perry and “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.
The crowd gave her a standing ovation for singing Houston’s “high-pitch” song quite well.
Anne admitted she could not believe herself being in Cagayan de Oro with her fans, not as a host but doing her own solo concert.
In every intermission, the humble Anne would always thank the crowd for the support she receives even if she was not born a singer.
Giving support to Anne in the concert are her special guests Luis Manzano, Rachel Ann Go and Jon Santos.
Luis and Anne sang together “Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang,” while she and Rachel Ann did their own version of “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” originally by Aerosmith.
Jon, meanwhile, impersonated Anne when she excused herself for a wardrobe change.
Feeling like she was on cloud nine, Anne believes the show was fantastic even though she missed some notes.
“I’m so happy that everything went really well. May mga blunders pero I think that’s what made it my concert. Kasi hindi perfect, kailangan may ganung mangyari,” she said.
Anne says she can’t help but take a bow to all artists and concert performers, after having experienced her own full-blown concert.
“It’s so hard and it’s so stressful. It really takes a lot of your time, patience and energy,” she said.
The concert started 30 minutes late while some media people also have their own share of minor complaints to the organizers but the show, which lasted for two hours, was really entertaining.
Even Cagayan de Oro Rep. Benjo Benaldo (1st District) was spotted having a grand time enjoying the concert.
Before singing her final song “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga, Anne inspired her fans by telling them to dream big “because dreams really do come true.”
Her successful “Annebisyosa: No Other Concert Tour” is a proof that everything is indeed, possible.
