The art advocacy program Art 2 Art opens 2018 with Christian Bautista, dubbed as “Asia’s Romantic Balladeer,” as its featured guest on Jan. 7.
Produced by the Manila Broadcasting Company and hosted by “Ballerina ng Bayan” Lisa Macuja, Art 2 Art airs every Sunday, 3:30 to 4 p.m., on radio via DZRH (666 khz on the AM band), on cable television via RHTV (Ch. 129 on Skycable in Metro Manila, Ch. 18 on Cignal TV and Ch. 3 on Cablelink) and online livestreaming at http://dzrhnews television.tv.
The show may also be viewed through the Facebook account DZRH News Television.
Though Bautista sang with the church choir as a kid, he did not consider music as his eventual career, finishing landscape architecture at the UP Diliman. But joining a singing competition in 2003 led him to a different path. He has since established himself as a pop artist not just in the Philippines but also in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
Bautista, incidentally, will be guesting for the first time with Macuja’s Ballet Manila for the company’s Ballet & Ballads concert series in February at Aliw Theater.
