The Concert King Martin Nievera kept his hands full fitting the bill of a true Pinoy music icon. His 30th anniversary concert dubbed "3D (Tatlong Dekada)" held last Sept. 13 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum showed the viewers what the generations had kept believing about the culture of Filipinos in music appreciation. His trademark of intelligent, decent and funny ways that kept all women crazy about love songs paved the way for a repeat slated on Nov. 22, 7:30pm at the same venue- Smart Araneta Coliseum. Aware that most kids these days regard him as the idol of their elders, he manages to push his message across to relive the OPM and the beauty of the Filipino songs. It was my first time interviewing Martin after following his gigs and his career since I was young.
Although I was too late and he was already wrapping up the interview with bloggers, he managed to welcome me with a hug and kiss and his personalized Big Mouth Burger. I can't believe the singer behind the songs I've loved all these years would be so accommodating and friendly. He was open to all types of questions and even those that would always be asked of him. He loved singing OPM more than English songs saying he interprets them better because he feels the soul of the lyrics and the melody moves him. Mr. Martin Nievera may be a loud mouth on TV every Sunday on ASAP but we love watching him like that. I love that he had kept being the most entertaining music icon he is and I've watched him perform in concerts singing his heart out at every note. What was most unforgettable about the Big Mouth Martin is that he had become the man all women would love to listen when it comes to love.
After he handed me his personal gift of mobile phone speaker, he answered my questions about the love story I've always loved all these years. I've completely understood what he had gone through and I'm loving the Martin he is now for facing his life one day at a time. He was even too candid saying Pops these days employ him as one of her performers in shows. He is grateful at every opportunity and he hopes to make three more decades of love songs, more OPM Pinoys will keep singing. I can't wait to watch the #3D2 Tatlong Dekada The Repeat on Nov. 22 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The same brilliant production team will keep the audience on their feet with musical director Louie Ocampo, ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra directed by Rowell Santiago. It's going to be a fun flashback friday of fun and music on Nov. 22 at #3D2 Martin Nievera's Tatlong Dekada at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
