Following the local success of Apollo, Daniel Padilla is set to conquer the global stage with his first-ever digital concert.
First staged last October through KTX, the 25-year-old singer showcased his evolution as an artist in a one-night-only event watched by thousands of fans.
Now, Daniel— through The Filipino Channel (TFC) — is taking it to an even bigger platform to let his fans across the globe the chance to see what he has worked for throughout the years.
It will be available via the web-based platform StageIt which is known for hosting online shows for acclaimed foreign artists such as Jason Mraz, Jojo, and finalists and winners of reality singing competitions The Voice and” American Idol.
During his concert, Daniel expressed his gratitude to everyone who found ways to watch the show despite the challenges brought about by the ongoing pandemic.
“Gusto lang natin sila bigyan ng konting music, konting ligaya, ng konting time sa isa’t isa dahil yun yung hindi natin nagagawa. I’m doing this for them. Para sa kanila yun para sa kasiyahan nila. Hindi rin naman ako nag-e-expect ng sobrang dami (manunuod) din kasi alam ko lahat may pinagdadaanan ang mga tao ngayon,” he said.
He went on: “Ang hirap maglabas kahit isang daan, dalawang daang piso. So I really appreciate yung mga taong bumili to see the concert. So kung marami man, kung konti man, ang experience na makukuha nila sa akin is the same. Ang ibibigay ko na performance sa kanila is the same. Hindi magbabago.”
The 25-year-old actor-singer said he owes his talent to his parents who both have musical backgrounds.
“Kay mama ko nakuha yung influence sa U2 kasi fan siya. Sa daddy ko naman nakuha ko yung mga Def Leppard, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, yan yung mga luma. Sa lola ko naman yung mga standard music nina Sinatra,” he said.
He added: “Self-discovery ko na yung mga ‘80s new wave, yung mga Tears for Fears, the Cure, yun yung mga natutunanan ko na rin eventually dahil siyempre nagsimula ako sa The Beatles. Anyway nag-evolve na lang din ang music ko and mas gusto ko yung luma, mas gusto ko yung puso na binibigay nila eh.”
Meanwhile, Daniel Padilla’s Apollo will stream via StageIt this coming November 22 at 11AM (7P M PT / 10 PM ET Manila / Singapore time.
