Pilita Corrales, Asia’s Queen of Song, icon and legend of the Philippine entertainment industry in the last six decades, goes on stage at 8 p.m. on Nov. 17 at The Theatre at Solaire in An Evening with Pilita.
With Corrales in the one-night-only concert will be the immensely popular AMP Band and the inimitable string section of the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra with Mel Villena as musical director. The exceptional combination of musicians will provide the big band sound of the 50s and 60s and a taste of the classics.
The show will profile nuggets of time in Pilita’s life and career. She will be joined by her daughter Jackie Lou Blanco and son Ramon Christopher Gutierrez, both TV and motion picture personalities in their own right; her granddaughter Janine Gutierrez, and her old friends and colleagues in the industry Nikki Ross and Angie de la Cruz, better known as the Wing Duo.
Carlo Orosa the show’s director explains, “We want to show a side of Pilita that a lot of the young people have not seen. She is the first Filipino singer to actually showcase the Filipino talent internationally. She is both an icon and a legend.”
Pilita is elated to be the next music icon to perform in The Theatre at Solaire’s continuing Icons Series after the sold-out and well-reviewed concerts of Basil Valdez and Celeste Legaspi. “The feeling is like you’re on cloud nine.”
Audie Gemora, Solaire’s Entertainment director says, “Solaire is home of OPM and what better way for us to establish this than to highlight ‘Icons of Filipino music.’ Who can be more iconic that Pilita Corrales? Her distinct voice, performance style and image have regaled generations. She is the only one to have had numerous hit albums in Spanish, English, Tagalog and Bisaya. Anyone who has grown up watching Bagong Kampeon knows she has great personality and sense of humor. We cannot wait to have Ms. Pilita on stage at The Theatre Solaire.”
An Evening with Pilita is presented by Solaire Resort and Casino. For tickets, please call Ticketworld at 8919999.
