PLAYLIST UNPLUGGED: Kapuso Acoustic Night

3:57:00 AM

Last August 6, GMA Network held an intimate acoustic night with the Bloggers together with GMA Network's finest artists. This is actually one of the fun events that I look forward to with GMA Network, the event is PLAYLIST: UNPLUGGED. Aside from live performances from the selected artists, there was also a mini raffle! 

Again, kudos to the entire GMA Network social media team because they really did a magnificent effort on this one. I super love the location which is at Big Bad Wolf, cozy and perfect for an acoustic night, minus the lights though but nevertheless it was superb
 even the food was delicious.

The first performance came from the TO THE TOP boys. TO THE TOP is the first ever multi-platform boy band competition in the Philippines. Spearheaded by the GMA Public Affairs Department. the show documents the journey of young male vocalists from being solo artists in their schools, organizations and communities, to striving to be part of GMA Network's first ever boy band.

That night, Martin De Vera, Mico Cruz, Seph Manlapaz, Miko Manguba, Joshua Jacobe and Cholo Dela Cruz performed. In between their performance, we got the chance to ask them some question like if ever what would they choose, love or career and the boys had a different take on this but most of them wanted to focus more on their career right now. As to how they'll be able to compete with the other boys in the competition, they said they just wanted to give their best shot and follow their dreams. They explained that each of them has a weakness and they also understand that as days pass by they will improve more.
There was also a revelation, Martin De Vera admitted that he has a crush on Louise Delos Reyes and he's been a big fan of her as well.
