Confessions: A Night of Secrets, Stories and Songs1:56 AM
If in case you are wondering who the girl on the first photo is, she's The Voice of the Philippines alumnus Morissette Amon. This was taken a few moments after she gave a heartwarming performance of Celine Dion's "I Love You Goodbye", a song regularly played on the radio.
I'm sure you've experienced hating a song just because you hear it so often. Some songs that are written beautifully but has lost its meaning because we are tired of listening to it. You change the radio station, skip them on your YouTube playlist or delete them from your Spotify forever. Only to hear a different version from a really talented artist on a good day and you go "Sh*t. That song is nice pala."
Last night at the Music Museum, a talented young group of singers and musicians re-introduced several commonly played songs of Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Regine Velasquez, the Beatles, and Eraserheads among others that I started to add them again to my Spotify early this morning. You would think that an NSYNC original like "I Thought She Knew" will only be appreaciated when you were in high school just because it's too pop but when Timmy Pavino, another The Voice of the Philippines ex-contestant, slowed it down further and injected more heart to it, you want to play it over and over again.
Songs are like people I guess. (Whuttt??) We don't always appreciate them like we should because they're always there. They have to be gone to understand their value. Cliche but true.
Before this post will go very sentimental, here are the best moments from last night through photos and videos that would be worthy Valentine's Day read.
