Love your own. With the trend of most of us going gaga over Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, it would eventually malign the move to eradicate the colonial mentality threading the economy. I've just attended the launch of Chikka's Small Talk, Great Music campaign at the Penthouse of Ansons, Ortigas appreciating more of Filipino talents with Krissy and Ericka and admiring the innovations made by Chikka pushing for more Filipinos to watch live streaming of real-time live concerts of world-class Filipino talents across the globe.
Chief Executive Officer of Chikka, Chito Bustamante along with Junee Agcaoili and Luis Villongco announced the series of live streaming musical acts running for eight weeks featuring AJ Rafael, American Idol finalist Ramiele Malubay, Filipino-Aussie performer Christian Joseph and other special guests like US YouTube sensation Erika David and Japanese-American international acoustic singer Marie Digby starting tonight, May 21 (every Saturday).
The event featured performances of Krissy and Ericka known for their charming good looks and impressive vocal talent. These two pretty and angelic sisters have over 74,000 followers on Facebook and over 13 million upload views on YouTube. I was thinking they'd be like any similar acoustic act but after hearing them perform last night, I was ecstatic at the talent I had to congratulate their mother (who was at the event). The innovation brought by Chikka should at least divert the Filipino internet viewers and listeners in YouTube to help support the Filipino talents using Chikka's platform.
Chikka Live will run every Saturday (saves you the gas and the money going to bars) starting tonight May 21 and you have a chance to send them FREE text messages before and after their live streams and even when they are not online. Chikka is the "backstage pass" to enable the Filipino to engage in the discussions while the live stream is on at their website, www.chikka.com.ph.
Chikka, founded in 2001, launched the Chikka Messenger, an online application that supports the delivery of instant messages as SMS to mobile phones. Now with over 68 million registered users, Chikka is the most widely-used and viewed internet and mobile-based communications tools by Filipinos worldwide.
