NEW concert heartthrob Macoy Mendoza finally mounts his first major concert at Teatrino (Promenade, Greenhills) this coming Saturday, October 6, 2018, 9:00 p.m.. Billed as Music and Me, Macoy will have special guests like Prima Diva Billy, Kiel Alo, Luis Gragera and Nonoy Zuniga with the very special participation of Allan K. Mr. Butch Miraflor is the musical director.
“Macoy has a unique voice—medyo mabirit kaya I rearranged some songs para ma-challenge siya. Yes, he’s gonna sing some of his favorites too pero I worked on different areglos that will tap his other side as a singer. Maganda ang line-up lalo na ‘yung mga medley na pinapraktis niya these past weeks on piano,” Miraflor shared with us.
“I am very excited already pero kinakabahan siyempre. This is my first time to do a major show. I’ve guested already in Ate Billy’s show months back sa Teatrino rin kaya I know kung gaano kaganda at ka-intimate ng venue na ito for us. I am praying na sana ma-meet ko ang expectations ninyong lahat. I will do my darn best to perform. Kulang pa kasi ako sa self-confidence kaya natatakot ako in a way. Pero since ginusto kong maging singer, kailangang panindigan ko ito,” Macoy said.
“As his manager, pati ako ‘di mapagtulog sa nerbiyos and excitement. Maganda ang boses ni Macoy talaga—ihahasa lang ng kaunti puwede nang ilaban sa mainstream. Sa tulong ng mentors naming sina Nay Jobert Sucaldito and Allan K, for sure ay magkakaroon din ng kaunting space si Macoy sa music industry,” added Maine Nieto.
Macoy enjoys the music of Adele, Ariana Grande, Labrynth, Martin Nievera, etc. He realized that he can sing professionally three years back- when he was 15 years old.
“My family is musically-inclined but I just listened to them sing everyday before. Hindi ko ipinakikita rati sa kanila na kumakanta ako. It was just 3 years ago when I fell in love with singing. I’m more into arts and a former varsity sa fencing kasi. Hindi ko masyadong sineryoso ang pagkanta. I play the piano too and have composed a few original songs. Kaya here I am—ready to conquer the world of music. Please support this show and of course me,” pakiusap ni Macoy.
Music and Me is presented by Ilocos Sur ex-Gov. Luis “Chavit” Singson, Isabela Gov. Bojie Dy, IVM Construction and Aficionado Germany Perfume. This is also brought to us by Mr. Art Atayde, Mr. Nixon Teng, Mr. Boy Abunda and Guiguinto (Bulacan) Mayor and Mrs. Boy and Precy Cruz.
See you at Teatrino on October 6. (JS)
