Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha Sings as Bangketa Singer

[image grab from ABS CBN media]
Clad in simple street clothes with less and no make up to complete the experiment look.  Asia’s famous Nightingale Lani Misalucha belted out three songs in the noisy, dusty pedestrian side street at the back of Manila City Hall.  The production crew commissioned two blind bangketa singers, Flor and Mel who worked by singing and asking donations from the passing crowds of busy Manila side streets. The two did not know Lani Misalucha will be their guest protégé singer who will join them as they perform and ask for donations from passers-by.

When the experiment started, passers-by just casually passed the two blind workers and proceeded to where they will be going never stopping to even listen nor drop something on the donation box for the two blind workers.  But as Lani started to sing her first song, people started to listen to an unknown face yet familiar high pitched singing voice of Lani.  People started to be mesmerized and one by one stop to listen to the melodious voice.  The two blind workers are even happier not only listening to a strange bangketa singer who offered to sing for them and drew crowd that gets bigger and bigger as she belts out every song to their listening pleasure. People started dropping donations in appreciation to the singing talent and the nice melodies they were hearing. With three familiar songs certainly Lani’s, the crowd got to finally recognize  the face behind the simple street clothes in dark sunglass shades through that distinct voice that only belongs to the one and only Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha.  Excitement grew and one by one people started taking video, pictures of the bangketa singer now unmasked.  Lani took the experience as a treasured one and was overwhelmed with it.  With her experience, she certainly has high and deepest regards to the two blind bangketa workers who painstakingly worked with their talents under the basking heat of the sun, the humid and hot air, he noisy surroundings for just a few sum of donations in exchange for their talent and performance.  To Lani, it was certainly a rare and a very moving experience having performed in a very ‘unusual stage’ but very heart warming experience.

Whoever says Anne Curtis can’t carry a tune must have been mumbling on air now.  The famous Kapamilya fantaserye icon has belted out songs never in their wild imagination she can do.  Maybe not someone to compare with Broadway superstars, but Anne certainly did an unmatched performance in her recently concluded concert dubbed as ‘The Forbidden Anne Kapal Concert Round 2.’ Anne has again filled out the Smart Araneta Coliseum by overflowing it to the brim with her followers making her a ‘Concert Biggie.’ As hot as ever, Anne rippled another something for the entertainment scene.  Last year’s bar scandals made Anne’s career almost sour and bleak. The controversy of her as a bad example for the products she endorses created ripples and memes over the social media network.  Early this year, bad moments happened as she got stunned by a box jellyfish while on shoot of her fantasy series ‘Dyesebel’ in Batangas. But now, as she hums another tune, Anne belted all her bad sides out of her system as she did unusual concert singing stunts singing popular hits like ‘Let It Go’  from the animated movie Frozen and originally rendered by Idina Menzel.  Her star glows brightly anew and even hotter than before. Anne is currently one of the most sought after actress and endorser.  The sold out concert was co-produced by Annebisyosa Productions, Inc. and Viva Live was a certified blockbuster making Anne Curtis the next concert biggie in Philippine concert series.  Should Annedecide a sequel or another concert audience can expect more fire and hot numbers from Anne and her concert guests and will surely bring everyone on their feet and clamoring for more.  A sure stand out with more surprises and more exciting numbers.

Beauty and Beyond

What beauty means are differentiated by how a person perceive what beauty is?  Many says beauty lies on the eye of the beholder. To some, natural and exotic is beauty. A handful says beauty and brains are tops. Others say beauty is just skin deep.  Beauty organizers around the world seek far and wide who will stand out from its set of criteria and deserve to wear their prestigious crown and be named as the ‘most beautiful’ among women from different nations of the world who came to participate and compete for the coveted title at stake. However, based on the outcome and history of winning the title crowns there are only a handful of countries in the world who are consistently winning most of the crowns offered by these beauty pageant organizers. And in the year 2013, the Philippines have garnered and was enlisted in the elite list of countries having won the major beauty contests crowns. The elite group consist of Venezuela, the US and the Philippines with Venezuela having won 21 major crowns on top of the list followed by the US with 14 and the Philippines with 9.  The Philippines was also the lone Asian nation to have entered into the elite circle. Qualifying to be listed in the elite circle was winning the top four major beauty title namely: Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International and Miss Earth.

Assessing and measuring beauty by these ‘big four’ world beauty pageant organizers were based on tabulated score sheets filled up by the assigned contest judges during the pageant. In some instances public polls and voting are being conducted online as aid in the popularity aspect of criteria but this aspect was not a guaranty nor will wholly be the basis of the overall judging criteria. Organizers and pageant benefactors also play a big role though these will never be something to be taken into context since ‘unbiased’ decisions are always claimed and vital for the trust rating satisfaction of the pageant organizers mainly due to the interest of the viewing public.

The inclusion of the Philippines in the elite circle of the ‘big four’ has broken the traditional ‘western countries’ domination of the beauty pageant crowns. With the shift from west to eastern beauty domination, many beauty pageant followers are also unto the quest of what beauty will be based on the historic shifting of winners.  Many eastern countries are hopeful that if Philippines had made it to the elite circle, the feat can still be repeated.  A hope for women in the east or probably the middle, north or south have something to be challenged with.  This all lead to conclude that beauty is an exciting competition being watched and awaited by all people from all corners of the world.  Beautiful women not because they are poised, charming, witty and intelligent but most fitting of all was that they were representatives of making all the countries unite and respect each other as a nation and people of this world.  Beauty maybe in the eye of a person, but each women participant in these beauty contests does not only represent beauty but their respective country, their values, their culture and most significantly people united and one. A quality that radiates beyond what beauty mean.
