Jakarta, Indonesia October 20,2014 -
Proving his worth as an Asian Icon, Asia's Premiere Balladeer Christian Bautista has been chosen to be a featured guest performer in the special 23rd Anniversary show of MNCTV Network, considered to be Southeast Asia's largest and most integrated media group. The event gathered two elaborate stage set-ups featuring 30 famous performers and personalities from Indonesia, Malaysia. Christian was the lone Filipino performer in the event. Most of the songs performed were from a traditional Indonesian folk genre called Dangdut.
"I was overwhelmed that I got invited in such a prestigious event in MNCTV," says Christian. "The fact alone they trusted me to sing Dangdut, para akong inampon ng Indonesia. These dangdut songs are rich in tradition and almost sacred to them."
Christian sang Hingga Akhir Waktu (Till The End Of Time) with Syahrini and a traditional dangdut dance song called Pokok e Joged with Perssik and Ayu Ting Ting.
"The songs were beautifully and contemporarily arranged and the production numbers had the artists and dancers in elaborate traditional inspired costumes," shares he. "Syempre, I also sang my hits Tetaplah Dihatiku (Please Be Careful with My Heart in Bahasa language) with film & soap superstar Bunga Citra Lestari , The Way You Look At Me and my latest single to be released in Manila Up Where We Belong, which is the theme of the GMA7 series Empress Ki"
Christian was also met with other TV program media groups under MNCTV and family members of the network owners.
Christian, who celebrated his birthday last Sunday, was also surprised by his Indonesian fans with gifts and a special birthday cake.
Christian is currently busy taping for shows Strawberry Lane, Marian, and performing for "Sunday All Stars.
Next month, Christian will release his much-awaited album Soundtrack under Universal Records, which contains some of the most romantic tunes from the big screen.
