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
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.
