Best New Sings Edward Benosa Thrilled To Be The Guest Of Lani Misalucha In Her Valentine Show This Weekend

STAR MUSIC AWARDS best new singer Edward Benosa considers it a big break and an honor to be chosen as a guest of Asia’s Nightingale, Lani Misalucha, in her Valentine Concert at Resort World’s Newport Theatre on February 14 and 15. He and Lani are label mates in Star Music and he first met her when they performed as Star Music talents at 19 East. “She was the biggest star there kaya siya yung finale number,” he says. “When I met her backstage, natulala ako, starstruck. But at least, I managed to ask her to have a picture taken with her. Now, guest na ako sa concert niya. Isa siya talaga sa singers na nirerespeto at tinitingala ko. I feel so blessed to be with her in her concert. Sa mundong ginagalawan namin, sobrang na-a-appreciate naming mga baguhan na ang tinitingala naming artists are willling to work with us.”

The concert is for the benefit of the Cancer Alleviation Network on Care, Education and Rehabilitation (CANCER). It is directed by Frank Lloyd Mamaril (who has also worked with and directed Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli in their respective concerts) and will also feature the female trio Baihana with the world-famous Philippine Madrigal Singers. Mamaril directed Edward’s music video for his hit song “Di Man Lang Nagpaalam” which was nominated as Music Video of the Year in the Star Awards for Music last year.

In the concert with Lani, Edward will sing “Di Man Lang Nagpaalam” and another OPM number. “Malaking bagay po talaga. Sobrang sarap ng feeling na I’ll be on the same stage as Asia’s Nightingale. I’m really honored na makapag-perform sa concert niya. Di ko ini-expect na sa ganito ka-early stage ng career ko, I’ll get to perform kasama ang ganito kalaking singer natin.”

Edward has the good looks of a matinee idol and he sings better than other male singers we know. He deserves to be given bigger breaks.
