MEGA Entertainment cover stars Erik Santos, Yeng Constantino, KZ Tandingan and Moira Dela Torre share the songs they will sing the day they return to the stage in the cover excerpt below.
For all four Champion Singers, they look forward to the day when they are finally back on stage, singing live to a coliseum, an arena, a concert hall or even just a studio full of people, where they can sing to them while looking straight at their faces, hearing their screams and feeling their energy.
And when that day comes, I asked Yeng, Moira, KZ and Erik what their first song will be on their triumphant return:
Yeng Constantino sings an emotional “Hawak Kamay,”
Moira Dela Torre sings a sweet “Ikaw at Ako”
KZ Tandingan sings a heartfelt “’Wag Ka Nang Umiyak”
Erik Santos belts out, quite appropriately, a victorious “This Is The Moment”
And what moment that would be when we all finally hear these four sing live on stage when all this is over. And when all this is over, these victorious voices will be the sound that signals that music survives, stronger even than before.
