Britain’s Got Talent’s (BGT) 2014 grand winner Collabro is here in Manila heating up our stage as the love month ends and the summer season comes in. The musical theater boy band has been wooing gushing fans on their rounds in various ABS-CBN shows like It’s Showtime and ASAP to promote their upcoming show, which is part of their Asian tour that has already kicked off in Japan and Taiwan. Filipinos are suckers for ballads so it’s no wonder that the group is making a splash on their first visit to our country. I actually can’t blame their captivated fans 'cause these guys are a bunch of ridiculously good looking lads consisting of Michael, Jamie, Matt, and Thomas. Check out their official instagram account and see for yourself.
I got to spend a few minutes with them backstage before their ASAP stint, and learned that all of them wanted to pursue musical theater back then. So, they thought of forming a group which sang songs from the stage that they loved which is quite an extraordinary concept for a boyband. The choice of "Stars" as their audition piece for BGT was kind of a last minute decision that they went with 'cause it just struck a chord for them. I was telling them that the choosing a lesser known song from Les Miserables was absolutely genius and now, they will be forever be remembered for giving the most memeorable rendition of it.
Collabro will be serenading us with well-loved classics from, of course, their favorite musical Les Miserables, among others. The likes of "Bring Him Home," "Beauty and The Beast," and certainly, "Stars" is expected to be in their repertoire plus a few surpise Easter eggs according to the group. Collabro will be performing at the Newport Performing Arts Theater at Resorts World Manila on Monday, February 26, 2017 at 8 PM. I’ll surely be there to see these guys live!
