Aiza, Charice to hold concert this September-A A +A
Friday, July 19, 2013
FILIPINO international sensation Charice and child star turned singer Aiza Seguerra will feature in one big concert this September.
Dubbed as "Power of Two," the said event will be happening at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum on September 28, Saturday.
According to both singers, the collaboration was conceptualized after Charice graced Aiza and Noel Cabangon's "Tambayan Hits" concert at Onstage Greenbelt last June 21.
Aiza then clarified that there's no problem on who will get the bigger billing during the show.
Charice said she respects Aiza for her talent and years in the music industry.
"We know kung bakit na-compare because pareho kami ng situation (gender preference). Pero hindi nila puwedeng i-compare career wise kasi 25 years na siya sa music industry,” she said in a television interview.
The two are just keen to mount the concert and will dedicate it to the Lesbian, Gays, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community.
"All the time na nagkakaroon ng mag tao in show business, especially women who are courageous enough to accept who they are. Us in this concert is sending a clear message to people that it is okay (to come out)," Aiza said.
Meanwhile, she also gave her two cents on the recent news that same sex marriages was not just legalized in most states in the US, but also in United Kingdom.
Aiza said she's happy that there are groups pushing for equality and people are slowly warming to the idea that two people could get married in spite of their gender preferences.
"I'm very, very happy. Finally, more people are recognizing that love is equal and should be equal. That love is genderless," she ended. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
