01-28-15 may seem like an ordinary day to many people, but in the music industry there are lot of significant events that happened on this day. Such as the composer Johann Ernst Bach was born in 1722, and in 1985 the song “We Are The World” was recorded and more than 40 artists were involved, and proceeds went to the worldwide hunger prevention.
These are only a few noteworthy moments that happened. But for me 01-28 is a momentous day because a good friend and a STAR was born on January 28:Mr. Garth Garcia. I met him three (3) years ago, and we’ve been friends ever since.
Last January 28 2015 was another astonishing event that was held at the Crowd Bar. It was a celebration for his special day and a milestone in Garth’s life. His concert was not just a merriment, but a celebration towards music, and his journey as a musician, as well as the pre-launching of his upcoming album.
The concert was started by Freshmen; they sang Jealous of Nick Jonas, Say Something by Christina Aguilera a mash up of “Its Gonna Be Me” and “Impossible Dream” by NSYNC and Luther Vandross, and after the Freshmen greeted Garth and sang happy birthday the performance was followed by Rico Bautista.
The event was hosted by Mr. Wize Estabillo of Gandang Lalake and Ms. Chikki of MOR 101.9. After the hosts introduced the birthday boy and STAR OF THE NIGHT: MR. GARTH GARCIA. He sang Everything, Rude, and a Bruno Mars Medley which were musical influences in his life as a musician. Then Faith Cuneta performed, and sang a duet “Ikaw lamang” with Garth.
Garth sang one of his original songs Ikaw Ang Mahal.
It was a star-studded night, Garth and The Voice Kids performed a Himig Handog Medley; Earl sang “Kung Ako Na Lang Sana” by Bituin Escalante, Gab sang “Anong Nangyari” by Aiza Seguerra , then Garth sang “Pare Mahal Mo Raw Ako” by Michael Pangilinan and Shaine ended the medley with the song “Mahal Ko o Mahal Ako” by KZ Tandingan. After the Himig Handog medley Garth sang “Didn’t We Almost Have It All”.
To break the ice, Wize and Chikki played a game with the audience, and the game was All about Garth. After the game and prizes were given to the audience that won.
Garth and his former bandmates re-united, Amplified-Reunited (Carl Williams, Garth Garcia, Ron Dales, and Dan Lina) performed “Maging Sino Ka Man”. Then Garth introduced the Youtube sensations Giu Comia, Aarron Cadawas , and Sean Mauntag and they sang “Thinking Out Loud”.
After the performance with the Youtube sensations. Miguel Mendoza and Garth did a duet and sang “What About Love”, and then Miguel sang a solo.
More artists came to celebrate the night with Garth, Alpha and James the saxophonist artist performed.
Then Garth introduced “Aikee” and they performed their collaboration “Dagat ka Lupa Ako”, then Aikee sang a solo. After Aikee’s performance, Garth sang ‘All of Me”, the crowd thought that it was the end because Wize and Chikki presented the cake and Garth blew the candles and said his Thank You’s to the sponsors. However the night was just barely ending, Garth continued to sing a few more songs, a medley of “Let Her Go” and Stay With Me”. But it was a “False Finale”.
The night cannot end without the most wanted song in radio stations the past few months. Garth sang “Masaya Na Akong Iniwan Mo” for his grand finale.
The concert wouldn’t be a success without the people and sponsors who supported Garth Garcia and he would like to give thanks to the following people:
