Filipino talent is indeed world class. And that internationally-recognized excellence is in full display at the gala dinner for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit on Sunday night.
Titled “Bravo ASEAN!”, the program ran for around 30 minutes and was divided into three segments with different performers from across the country. The first part was a rock-orchestra version of the iconic song “Manila” by Hotdog.
The second was a dance number performed by Sining Kumintang from Batangas, Davao Tappers, and Belinda Agora Dancers. They showcased different types of dance like ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and tap dance.
The third part, titled “Jubilare,” is a medley of celebratory pop songs. The performance was headlined by some of the country’s best singers, including Jed Madela, Jona, David Ezra, Darren Espanto, Elha Nympha, Sam Shoaf, and Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha. By the end of the exhilarating showcase of Filipino talents, the crowd was on its feet, including United States President Donald Trump, who is seen giving the performers a standing ovation.
