Singer Maricris Garcia is celebrating her birthday and 11th anniversary in music industry via a solo concert. It’s her first major solo performance since she entered the entertainment business.
In a press conference held recently, the GMA Artist Center’s powerhouse diva shared that her show is a tribute to her journey as a musician, starting from her Pinoy Pop Superstar days, and a celebration of her milestones as an artist.
Entitled ‘MAR1CR1S,’ the concert will be staged at Teatrino in Greenhills on Sept. 28.
“The show is going to be more of a storytelling type. I am going to share all the experience I’ve gone through—my musical influences, as well as things about my personal life,” the singer told the press.
Maricris further said that she wants her concert to be like an intimate conversation with friends. The concert will be under the musical direction of Mark Lopez, accompanied by a five-piece band.
‘MAR1CR1S’ promises a grand ensemble of music, entertainment and nostalgia as the Kapuso diva looks back on her journey in the industry. Maricris personally conceptualized the concert.
She will be joined by the industry’s best singers, including Nar Cabico, Mark Bautista, and Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid.
She is also celebrating her birthday this month, and the concert is both a treat to herself and to her fans. She excitedly shared her process in producing her own concert, “During the first few months of planning, everything was easy. But as the days go by, I started to feel the pressure and the stress. Good thing I have the support of GMA Artist Center and a few people who offered their help in making this concert possible.”
The Kapuso star feels grateful that she has the opportunity to live out her passion, “I want to let them know that I’m still here and I will always be here, singing.” She also sets to release her new music early next year in time for the Valentine season.
When asked what took her too long to have her solo concert, Maricris explained that it’s about proper timing.
“It’s not easy to last this long; not everyone gets to stay here for 11 years. I initially planned to hold a 10th anniversary show last year to coincide with my 30th birthday. But maybe this is the right time,” she related.
‘‘Actually, I’m not the kind of person who wants to rush into things. Eleven years may be long for some people but for me, it feels like it’s just yesterday. I believe in God’s plan; if it’s meant to be, then good. Thankfully, He finally gave it to me,” the singer added.
