Philippine Pop-rock Superstar Yeng Constantino,all set to bring Filipino pride to the Middle East via “One Music X”

With less than a month to go before what promises to be the next must-watch music festival in the Middle East — “One Music X”, The Filipino Channel (TFC), ABS-CBN Star Music, Myx, MOR For Life and One Music PH announce the stellar ensemble composed of the Philippines’ most iconic artists and Dubai’s world-class local acts, set to conquer the Dubai Media City Amphitheater on November 3.

Starting off the exciting line-up of multi-faceted performers is the Philippines’ Pop-Rock Royalty Yeng Constantino.  From reality singing competitions to the theatrical stage, Constantino is set to share her signature compositions and performances, some of which have become the Philippines’ biggest hits, for a full day of celebration of the Filipino culture, spirit and communing with what the rest of the world has to offer.

Since then, Constantino’s achievements have been pouring one after the other.  Her debut album “Salamat” earned her not just Gold but triple Platinum status — a feat for a newbie then in the music industry.

What ensued was one chart-topping album after the other: “Journey”, “Lapit” and “Metamorphosis”.  By far, her best-known single remains to be “Hawak-Kamay”, a song she composed at a tender age of 14 for a cousin she was very close to but left their hometown of Rizal in Luzon in the Philippines out of necessity.

Since then, she has started collaborating with other artists starting with “Chinito” — by far one of her most popular music video featuring ABS-CBN heartthrob Enchong Dee.

From music to television, Constantino continues to build her long list of credentials.  She has hosted the programs “Music Uplate Live” along with other OPM artists; “The Voice Kids” and “Pinoy Band Superstar” alongside international sensation K-Pop superstar Sandara Park, timeless Kapamilya Heartthrob Aga Muhlach and the Philippines’ Phenomenal Star Vice Ganda.

In 2016, her life was captured in the musical “Josephine”, her real name — proof that while she has been in the industry for a decade, quite less than more veteran artists, she is part of a very few who have managed to get their lives dramatized on stage.

Beyond being seen worldwide via TFC events, including “ASAP in Dubai” Constantino started breaking into the international recording scene via a collaboration with Singaporean rapper, actor and radio personality Sheikh Haikel for “Better Than Yesterday,” a pop song produced by Shorya Sharma.

Because of her countless exposures, her hits have been covered by various nationalities most notable of whom is American singer – songwriter David DiMuzio who performed an acoustic version of “Hawak Kamay” on youtube.

On November 3, Constantino will come full circle as she returns to the Middle East to perform for her fellowmen and share the talent that is Yeng Constantino.

Constantino immediately said yes to the “One Music X” project as soon as she heard of the concept.  She says: “Iyong konsepto na may pagsasama-samahin na mga ganitong klaseng artist — that alone, parang nag-spark na agad ng joy sa puso ng mga tao lalo na ng mga kababayan natin sa Middle East.  I think it will be a success (The thought of bringing together these remarkable artists alone sparked joy in the hearts of Filipinos, especially our fellowmen in the Middle East.  I think this will be a success”.

The Pop Rock Superstar adds: “It’s going to be something na magiging platform talaga para mas makita pa yung mga talent ng mga Pilipino (It’s going to be a platform for other nations to see the Filipino talent)”.

Catch Constantino alongside Soul Supreme KZ; Teen Singing Sensation Inigo Pascual; Pop-rock Band Silent Sanctuary; and Rock Icon of His Generation Rico Blanco plus EDM sensation DJ Moophs and EDM artist Xela together with Pop R & B performer Josh McCartney and reggae performer Emmanuel Marie as pop meets rock and as the Philippines’ pride meet Dubai’s finest for one music fusion in “One Music X”.

Hosting the “One Music X” are Myx’s premier VJ and award-winning host Robi Domingo and homegrown favorite VJ Ai of Myx; and Ang Nagiisang Diyosa sa Balat ng Radyo MOR For Life’s DJ Chacha.

Internationally known Pinoy artists at world-class Dubai acts, kukumpleto sa exciting line up ng pinakamalaking celebration ng Filipino musical pride sa labas ng bansa
Pop-rock icon Yeng Constantino handa nang makibahagi at lumikha ng kasaysayan sa
“One Music X”

Habang papalapit na ng papalapit ang “One Music X”, ang tinaguriang pinakamalaking Filipino experience sa Dubai, patindi na ng patindi ang excitement para sa mga parating na naglalakihang mga pangalan sa larangan ng Philippine music industry, pati na mula sa Dubai music scene na dadalhin ng The Filipino Channel (TFC), ABS-CBN Star Music, MOR 101.9, One Music PH, sa Dubai Media City Amphitheater sa
November 3.

Una sa listahan ang Pop Rock Superstar na si Yeng Constantino na dadalhin ang kaniyang signature compositions at performances, ilan dito ay kabilang na sa biggest hits ng bansa.

Una nang nakilala ang multi-awarded na si Constantino matapos itong manalo ng Grand Star Dreamer ng reality singing competition “Pinoy Dream Academy”.   Mula sa pagiging isa sa pinakatahimik sa grupo, umusbong ang talent ni Constantino at nakuha ang atensyon ng mga mentor na pinamumunuan ni maestro Ryan Cayabyab, para sa kaniyang multiple talents.

Simula noon, tuluy-tuloy na ang blessings para kay Constantino.  Ang debut album niya na “Salamat” ay naging triple Platinum — isang malaking achievement para sa isang music industry newbie.

Sunud-sunod naman ang kaniyang naging hit albums: “Journey”, “Lapit” at “Metamorphosis”.  Masasabing ang kaniyang pinakakilalalang album ay “Hawak-Kamay” — isang awitin na nilikha ni Constantino sa edad na 14 para sa isang kamag-anak na malapit sa kaniyang puso pero lumisan sa kanilang kinalakihang lugar.

Sa loob ng isang dekada, nakapag-collaborate na rin si Constantino sa mga artists tulad nina Enchong Dee para sa kaniyang kilalang MTV na “Chinito”.

Mula naman sa music industry, sumabak na rin sa telebisyon si Constantino via “Music Uplate Live” kabilang ang iba pang OPM artists; “The Voice Kids” kasama ang hosts na sina Robi Domingo at Alex Gonzaga at coaches na sina Broadway Diva Lea Salonga, Rock Star Bamboo, at Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo; at “Pinoy Band Superstar” kasama ang international sensation na si K-Pop Superstar Sandara Park, walang kupas na Kapamilya Heartthrob Aga Muhlach at Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda.

Ang lahat ng milestones ni Constantino ay napapaloob sa isang musical na may titulong “Josephine” hango sa kaniyang tunay na pangalan,  Isa itong malaking tagumpay dahil iilan lamang sa Philippine music industry ang nabigyan ng pagkakataon na ma-dramatize sa stage ang kanilang buhay.

Kilala na sa ibang bansa sa pamamagitan ng TFC shows tulad ng “ASAP in Dubai” at Tawag ng Tanghalan sa “It’s Showtime”, nagsimulang magkaroon naman ng break si Constantino sa international recording scene via “Better Than Yesterday”, isang pop song kung saan ka-duet niya ang rapper, actor at radio personality na si Sheikh Haikel.

Dahil sa kaniyang international exposure, nakilala si Constantino maging ng mga ibang nationalities, kabilang ang ilan na nag-cover na ng kaniyang mga awitin tulad na lang ng “Hawak Kamay” rendition ni American singer- songwriter na si David DiMuzio.

Sa November 3, magbabalik sa Dubai si Constantino upang bigyang-saya ang mga kababayan at maghatid ng pride sa bansa dahil ito ang kauna-unahan na pinakamalaking Filipino musical festival sa labas ng Pilipinas at ang susunod na must-watch music festival sa Middle East.

Ayon kay Constantino, agad niyang tinanggap ang proyekto noong una itong inalok sa kaniya.  Aniya: “Iyong konsepto na may pagsasama-samahin na mga ganitong klaseng artist — that alone, parang nag-spark na agad ng joy sa puso ng mga tao lalo na ng mga kababayan natin sa Middle East.  I think it will be a success”.

Paniniwala ni Constantino, “It’s going to be something na magiging platform talaga para mas makita pa yung mga talent ng mga Pilipino”.

Makakasama niya sina Soul Supreme KZ; Teen Singing Sensation Inigo Pascual; Pop-rock Band Silent Sanctuary; at Rock Icon of His Generation Rico Blanco kasama ang EDM sensation na si DJ Moophs at EDM artist na si Xela, at premiere Myx VJ Robi Domingo at homegrown favorite na si VJ Ai at Nag-iisang Diyosa sa Balat ng Radyo na si DJ Chacha ng MOR For Life; pati ang mga local Dubai acts tulad nina Pop R & B performer Josh McCartney at reggae performer na si Emmanuel Marie.

Para sa tickets, bisitahin ang Virgin Megastore, select zoom outlets, at ktx.abs-cbn.com.  Ang tickets ay nagkakahalagang AED 135 para sa general patronage at AED 245 para sa VIP.  May 15% discount para sa General Admission tickets (limited period only).  Para naman sa groups of four, may isang libreng ticket sa ilalim ng Barkada Bundle.
