To celebrate his 10th year in show business, actor Matteo Guidicelli will have a concert titled, Matteo Made in Cebu this November 18 at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino. His guests include Martin Nievera, KZ Tandingan, the G-Force Dancers, and Visayan singer Kurt Fick.
“It’s going to be very new because this is the first time I’m working with these veterans—Sir Louie Ocampo (his musical director), Rowell Santiago (his concert director), Tito Martin Nievera. KZ Tandingan and the G-Force should be there also. Everything’s going to be fresh and new, “ he said at a bloggers’ conference on Thursday, November 10 at the Kuya J restaurant on Timog Avenue, Quezon City.
As he brainstormed on the repertoire with director Rowell and composer Louie, Matteo said that the songs he picked for his concert are the music he grew up with. “So ‘yung mga songs na dati hindi ako kumakanta, naririnig ko lang si mama nag-karaoke, dinagdag ko rin ‘yan. May mga songs na memorable para sa akin at ‘yung mga songs na sobrang relatable sa akin na mga pinagdaanan ko ngayon, pinagdaanan natin before, mga ganyan,” he said.
Matteo revealed that there will also be a song for his girlfriend, singer-actress Sarah Geronimo. “Meron naman, meron naman. Secret, surprise na ‘yan,” he said, not wanting to share the title of the song.
When asked if Sarah is attending his concert, Matteo said that he does not know yet as she is busy with her work. Nonetheless, he said that his girlfriend is always welcome to do so. “What matters is that she is one of the fewest that inspired me for the show, inspires me to do my work all the time, inspires my craft. She’s an inspiration, that’s more than enough for me,” he told some members of the press after the blog con.
The profits of Matteo’s concert will benefit Kythe Foundation, an organization for cancer-stricken children.
