Ready for AnneKapal?

(The Philippine Star) - May 13, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Two years after her successful concert, Annebisyosa No Other Concert (2012), Anne Curtis (photo) is poised to once again rock the Smart Araneta Coliseum with The Forbidden Concert: AnneKapal on May 16. This time, the actress/TV host/celebrity endorser will be back on stage more determined than ever to sing her heart out.

Anne has never disguised her ambition to make it big as a concert artist. Annebisyosa was a big gamble for her. Many doubted if she got what it takes to hit it off as a singer. But the criticisms only fueled Anne’s determination.

Annebisyosa was actually the title of her first album. Released in 2011 under Viva Records, it was a surprise hit, selling 10,000 copies. Annebisyosa went on to achieve platinum status. But Anne felt singing live in concert was the true test for a singer. So, she decided to perform at the Smart Araneta.

Annebisyosa turned out to be a monster hit. The Big Dome was packed to the rafters. Anne was on her way to becoming a singing star.

For AnneKapal, Anne is leaving nothing to chance. She has been rehearsing religiously and is hands on in every aspect of the production. But the May 16 concert is just one of the many projects lined up for the Viva Artist Agency (VAA) artist. Anne is in the swim of things with ABS-CBN’s newest TV series, Dyesebel. Another album is in the works, and there are two movie projects in the pipeline.

Anne is also being kept busy by her endorsements. Her face graces billboards as she promotes products ranging from condominiums to cosmetics.

“I’ll be everywhere again this year,” Anne said.

Her forthcoming movie The Gifted reunites her with co-star in No Other Woman and Viva talent Cristine Reyes. Sam Milby will join the two. The Gifted is due for release this summer.

“As you can see, my plate is full in the next few months and I’ll be busier than I’ve ever been,” she said. “I feel so blessed.”

The Forbidden Concert: AnneKapal is directed by Georcelle Dapat-Sy and musical director is Marvin Querido with Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Martin Nievera, Luis Manzano, Billy Crawford, Vhong Navarro and Robert Seña as guests.

Tickets are available at www.ticketnet.com.ph. For details, call 911-5555 or 687-7236. Ticket prices are Patron A, P5,500; Patron B, P4,500; Patron C, P4,500; Upper Box A, P3,000; and Upper Box B, P1,000.
