Unexpected but memorable.
Actress, book author, singer, and also the power to fill up the Smart Araneta Coliseum on her first try.
Just like her older sister Toni, Alex Gonzaga showed everyone at Smart Araneta Coliseum on April 25 that nothing is impossible when it comes to her “Unexpected Concert”.
Channeling her inner Ariana Grande, the AG from the East (yes, that Alex’ alias) showed off on stage that she is a total performer herself.
We give you a rundown on why Alex’ first concert is indeed memorable:
1) Opening the show with Ariana Grande songs
Being a fan of the Global pop superstar, Alex channeled her inner Grande from her costumes to singing songs such as “Break Free”, “Problem”, and “One Last Time”.
After singing some of Grande’s songs, Alex quipped “Sino nagsabing hindi ako marunong kumanta?,” addressing critics who question her ability to sing.
2) The Bra slip issue
An unexpected concert is not meant to be perfect, as there were problems encountered such as Alex’s bra peeking out of her costume.
Despite of the slight wardrobe malfunction, Alex continued performing and singing, while being given a black jacket to wear as Alex’ staff could not figure out how to fix her bra.
Alex even made a joke of the wardrobe malfunction, saying “Yung nasuot ko palang bra kanina, kay Mommy Pinty.” Yes, her mother was at her concert.
3) Dance showdown with Maja Salvador
Aside from singing, Alex also showcased her dancing skills, even having a showdown with Maja Salvador, who is well-known for her dancing skills especially in ASAP.
Alex and Maja danced to two of Beyonce’s hits, namely “All the Single Ladies”, and “Crazy in Love”.
During their segment together, Alex did ask Maja on how she is after breaking up with Gerald Anderson. Maja simply said “maganda,” indirectly showing how she is not badly affected with her breakup with Gerald.
4) Singing together with her sister
Together with her sister Toni Gonzaga, who is also a total performer herself, the sisters performed “Let It Go”, with Toni as Elsa and Alex as Anna. In addition, both also sang “Bang Bang”, with Alex joking her sister’s upcoming marriage to director Paul Soriano.
Their performance together is considered one of the main highlights of the concert.
5) Ending with Taylor Swift
Aside from being a fan of Ariana Grande, Alex is also a big fan of Global pop superstar Taylor Swift. Ending her concert, and as part of her encore, Alex channeled her inner Taylor Swift and sang “Blank Space” as her final song.
