BUGOY Drilon, one of the Philippines top OPM acts, marked his tenth year in the music industry with a star-studded concert titled One Day, One Decade held at the Kia Theatre on September 25, 2018.
One Day, One Decade is the versatile artist’s first major solo concert and was produced by Wish 107.5.
Drilon, who rose to fame from being a top contender at the second season of Pinoy Dream Academy and his Wishclusive performance of Matisyahu’s “One Day”, shared the story of his life through a collection of diverse, lively, and emotional songs during the three-hour show.
The concert was highlighted by a mix of both stimulating and evocative songs handpicked from a broad range of genres from different eras — ballad, reggae, rock, and pop — all of which represent a significant juncture in Drilon’s life.
Aside from powerful covers and duets, the evening was punctuated with several memorable notes — Drilon’s performance of his original tracks, “Muli,” “Paano Na Kaya,” and “Namo,” and his raw and stirring take on “Angels Brought Me Here.”
A talented assemblage of Filipino artists joined Drilon on this major project: Pop-rock superstar Yeng Constantino, Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan, PH Prince of Pop Erik Santos, Birit Queen Klarisse de Guzman, and Pinoy Dream Academy alumni Cris Pastor, Hansen Nichols, Miguel Mendoza and Liezel Garcia all wowed the crowd with their vocal skills.
BuDaKhel — a trio composed of Bugoy and two of the country’s pop and R&B main men, Daryl Ong and Michael Pangilinan — made hearts melt, while Wishcovery’s very own Wishfuls — Carmela Ariola, Kimberly Baluzo, Ace Bartolome, Louie Ann Culala, and Princess Sevillena — showed that they have what it takes to impress a crowd.
