Filipinos from all over the US trooped to the Kings’ Theatre to witness a night of pure entertainment from some of GMA Network’s sought-after stars—Christian Bautista, Julie Anne San Jose, Rayver Cruz, Kyline Alcantara, Golden Cañedo, Betong Sumaya, and Alden Richards.
The successful show, dubbed Kapusong Pinoy Studio 7 Musikalye sa Brooklyn, was filled with a variety of performances—from high-energy dance numbers, powerhouse vocal sets, duet performances, and heartfelt moments that kept the Kapuso abroad in high spirits.
One of the show’s highlights was when the stars took the opportunity to celebrate Mother’s Day by serenading while giving out roses to the moms in the audience.
The Studio 7 squad expressed their utmost gratitude for making their first international Musikalye show a huge success.
Christian, who exhibited why he is one of GMA’s most powerful singers with his stellar performances, feels grateful for the overwhelming support of the Kapuso abroad, “Thank you so much for spending time with us.”
“We’re very fortunate because we’re able to bring Studio 7 on the international stage. Hopefully, we can have more shows to bring here,” Julie Anne said.
Alden also shared how the moms he met during the concert made him feel sentimental in time for the Mother’s Day celebration. “We enjoyed the show a lot and I’m sure masaya yung mga mommy namin ni Rayver sa heaven na we’re making people happy.”
The concert also received praises from netizens. NYC YouTubers Roy Flores and David Kirsch, whose YouTube Channel is called “Pinoy and a Jew,” said in their vlog, “All of them are great! It’s a true representation of the Filipino artistry.”
One of GMA Pinoy TV’s Facebook followers, meanwhile, said the show was worth the wait, “It was nice seeing you all and so glad I was able to attend the concert. We drove from Rhode Island just to attend the concert and see them.”
A Twitter user, on the other hand, tweeted, “Great show GMA Pinoy TV. Hope to see more like this in different countries around the globe.”
Due to positive feedback the show received online, the hashtag #ALDENxKPS7Brooklyn even made it to Twitter Philippines’ trend list and ranked as the third most talked about topic on May 11, same day of the show.
“We are glad to have brought the ultimate music tambayan experience of Studio 7 in New York,” says GMA First Vice President and Head of International Operations Joseph T. Francia.
“It affirms our mission to bring our Kapuso abroad feel closer to home and provide them with great entertainment they deserve from no less than some of the Network’s multi-talented performers,” he added.
Kapusong Pinoy Studio 7 Musikalye sa Brooklyn was presented by GMA Pinoy TV in coordination with GMA Entertainment Group, under the supervision of GMA Vice President for Business Development and Department III Darling de Jesus-Bodegon.
The concert was directed by Mark A. Reyes V and in association with Synergy Production & Marketing Inc. headed by Grace Labaguis.
