This week is perhaps one of the most colorful days in Philippine music history: Even before Kanye West makes his way to our shores, pop star Austin Mahone, who's also part of Paradise International Music Festival, arrives in Manila. Actress and singer Hailee Steinfeld gets here a day after, making her arrival felt on social media by tweeting this:
Fans are ecstatic to see here in person; in fact, one of them got the best birthday gift of his life: A photo op with her!
Being part-Filipino, Steinfeld is more than excited to visit the Philippines, and considers her visit a homecoming of sorts. How much does she love the country so far? Her tweet pretty much sums it up:
Steinfeld, best known for her role in True Grit and Pitch Perfect 2, and for her hit single “Love Yourself,” will be doing a series of mall shows to promote her album Haiz. Fans can catch her on April 8, 7PM at Eastwood Mall, on April 9, 5PM at Uptown Mall, Fort Bonifacio, and on April 10, 3PM at Venice Grand Canal, McKinley Hill. Check out her latest music video "Rock Bottom":
