Kapuso Stars Receive Warm Welcome in Bacolod's Panaad Festival
An estimated crowd of 15,000 Negrenses were treated to an exciting Kapuso experience via the Panaad Festival: Kapuso Night held recently at the Panaad Park and Stadium in Bacolod City.
Featuring topnotch performances from RnB Princess Kyla and Steven Silva of Party Pilipinas, and Kapuso leading lady Sarah Lahbati (from the upcoming Kapuso primetime offering Makapiling Kang Muli), the event served as the highlight of the Kapuso Network’s participation in this year’s Panaad Festival.
Steven and Sarah, who are both products of GMA’s popular talent reality search Starstruck, surprised the audience with a special duet number. The sizeable crowd went agog as the two artists fueled the “kilig explosion” with their seemingly good rapport.
The excitement reached fever pitch as soon as Kyla took the stage. And the RnB Princess did not disappoint with her impressive song numbers. She also participated in the Kapuso Meet and Greet in SM City Bacolod at 4pm that day.
“I feel very touched by the warm welcome extended to us by the Negrenses. It was nice to see them dancing and singing along during my performances. Nakakatuwa sila!” shares Kyla.
“It’s my third time here in Bacolod and it feels good to be here again to entertain our Kapuso fans. I hope they’ll continue to support all our shows on GMA. Sana abangan din nila ang mga bago naming programa,” says Sarah.
Steven is also excited about joining the Panaad festivities. “Ang daming tao! I hope they enjoyed celebrating the festival with us and I definitely look forward to seeing them again in our next visit.”
Meanwhile, RnB Prince Jay-R of Party Pilipinas and Kapuso heartthrob TJ Trinidad (Makapiling Kang Muli) serenaded the candidates of the “Lin-ay Sang Negros” beauty pageant during its Coronation Night last April 13 at the Panaad Park and Stadium. TJ, together with Bubble Gang's sexy actress Jackie Rice, took centerstage in another fun and exciting Meet and Greet that took place the following day at SM City Bacolod.
The team behind GMA Regional TV was just ecstatic not just with the successful outcome of the events but also with the warm reception they received from the local audience.
“By just merely seeing all the smiles in the audience's faces, we know for a fact that all of our hard work and preparations for this year's Panaad Festival surely paid off. We thank all Kapusong Negrenses for welcoming us once again and for continuously making GMA Network number one in their hearts,” says Oliver Amoroso, Assistant Vice President for Sales and Marketing of GMA Regional TV.
On April 29, catch the highlights of the Kapuso celebration of the Panaad Festival via the "Let’s Fiesta" TV Special airing in all eight (8) regional stations of GMA Network in Davao, CDO, GenSan, Dagupan, Cebu, Iloilo, Naga, and Bacolod.
