Mariah mania in Manilla

Sunday 12 September 2004

Filipino fans got one good raison d'Ítre in spending more time in front of their TV sets this time as Mariah Carey's songs are presently re-becoming a proverbial tune specifically on every, if not all, local musical variety show in the Philippines.
In fact earlier today, 3 Mariah hits have been once again showcased on ASAP Mania during their "Divas" segment. Led by Philippines' premiere performer Gary Valenciano, the segment fired up with his performance of Whenever You Call which later shared on stage by local divas Zsa-Zsa Padilla and Anna Fegi. It was then followed with the song One Sweet Day, which Gary V. collaborated with the two new finalists from "Born Diva", ABS-CBN's newest reality-based singing contest. The segment ended with the group's rendition of Mariah Carey's 15th No.1 hit and a certified-Filipino favorite Thank God I Found You. ASAP can be seen worldwide through the Filipino Channel.
In an assessment, this trend of top local performers doing Mariah Carey songs on national TV is vastly an important thing for all Filipino fans and alike. Its enormous (free) promotion being given to Mariah Carey is very satisfactory and of great help especially that the release of her new album is just around the corner. Lets just hope that this trend on Philippine TV will continue for as long as it can be and inspire more artists to do the same.
