American singer and songwriter Robin Thicke was the main star at the inauguration of The Fountain, the centerpiece of the resort and casino complex Okada Manila in Entertainment City in Parañaque.
The “Blurred Line” singer joined the grand celebration on Friday with live performances by the acrobatic and circus act World of Wonders, Asia’s Got Talent finalist Gerphil Flores, and the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra. Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach hosted the inaugural show.
Thicke is a multi-awarded singer who became controversial when he shared the stage with Miley Cyrus during the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn in 2013. The now-infamous performance was a medley of Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop,” and Thicke’s global smash hit “Blurred Lines.” During the performance, pop singer Cyrus crotch-grabbed herself and dry-humped the male singer (a dance move known as twert) while the members of the audience collectively gasped in awe.
Meanwhile, billed as the world’s largest multicolor dancing water feature, The Fountain is situated at the heart of the 44-hectare resort, Okada Manila. The show was enhanced with a highly immersive projection mapping onto the glass surface of the 800 meter-long crystal corridor surrounding the dancing water spectacle, which will create a whimsical augmented and interactive reality. Additionally, the spectacle served as a special preview of the advanced projection mapping experience, the Crystal Corridor, capped with a stunning fireworks display.
