MNL48 intensifies the kilig on MNL48 In Love: Valentine Mini Live Concert
Valentine's just got sweeter with lots of surprise announcements!
The Philippine idol group MNL48 painted the event red as they magnified the love for their MNLoves with their surprising announcements and exciting performances on their MNL48 in Love: Valentine Mini Live Concert on February 16th, 2020 at Movie Stars Cafe.
MNL48 opened the show with kilig vibes and Valentine feels by performing their hits such as ‘Manila 48’, ‘Bingo!’, ‘Labrador Retriever’, ‘Igai Ni Mango’, as well as some of today’s pop music that surely enticed the fans even more – Team MII showing off their powerful vocals by singing a cappella of ‘Just The Way You Are’ by Bruno Mars; Team NIV flaunting their awesome dance moves through some TikTok dance craze; and Team L once again slaying the stage with their performance of ‘Believer’ by Imagine Dragons.
Fans were also treated with amazing performances from the Seitansai celebrants MNL48 Kyla and MNL48 Joyce as they shared the stage of their coming of age. Both of them share the same birthday wish of wanting MNL48 getting more recognition in the country. “Ang wish ko, ang wish naman naming lahat talaga always, is sana sooner or later mahalin na talaga tayo ng buong Pilipinas,” birthday girl Kyla said. “Sana soon enough, fingers crossed, tanggapin na tayo ng Philippines and… ikalat na natin ang MNL48!” she declared, earning cheers and applauses from the crowd.
Hyping the event further, the management surprised both fans and the MNL48 members by cutting off their ‘High Tension’ performance with its most-awaited music video, showing the lucky attendees an early preview that left them screaming in awe and excitement.
The feeling is surreal and above the sky as MNL48’s fifth single center Gabb expressed her excitement toward the official music video, “Hindi ko po talaga ine-expect na during performance po namin siya lalabas and sobrang ganda po talaga ng music video. Sobrang saya ko po and grateful to be the center and maraming salamat po sa lahat ng gumawa behind the video. Sobrang ganda and congrats po sa ating lahat”.
And just as everyone thought everything was finally over, another surprise bomb dropped again as they officially announced the 6th Single ‘RIVER’ and the newest Senbatsu members in no particular order namely:
6th Single Senbatsu Members
“Akala ko tapos na ‘ko as fifth single center, ‘di ko ine-expect na gagawin akong double center with ate Abby, kasi syempre marami sa’min ang deserving,” Gabb told the audience in tears.
Abby, the new center sharing the position said that she has done her best and was beyond grateful. She also didn’t forget to include everyone who didn’t make it to the Senbatsu, “‘Tong River na ‘to, talagang lahat ng girls gusto ‘to, sa mga ‘di nakasama ‘wag niyong isipin ‘yon kasi para sa’tin ‘to lahat,” Abby directed to her fellow members.
Indeed, MNL48 in Love: Valentine Mini Live Concert was one for the books with all of its surprises and astounding performances from the girls.
