WHAT is new in the concert scene?

All roads lead to New Frontier Theater in Cubao on February 1 para sa first major concert ni Katrina Velarde. The title is SiKat Ako which can be interpreted as I Am Famous or I Am Kat (Katrina's pet name).

Naging suki ng mga amateur contest si Katrina or Kat and her contemporaries are Angeline Quinto and Charice Pempengco now Jake Zyrus. She went mainstream nang maging monthly finalist siya sa Little Big Star. Sa second season ng Talentadong Pinoy 2010, she competed as part of the singing group, New Born Divas with Alyssa Quijano (Charice's first known GF, remember?) at Jennifer Marovilla. She also competed under the group division sa first season ng X-Factor Philippines with the all-girl vocal group Aka Jam na ang mentor ay si Gary Valenciano.

She gained further popularity as a solo artist when a video of her performing Beyonce’s Dangerously in Love while using a purple comb as a fake microphone went viral online. Beyonce's bass player shared it on her Facebook page leading netizens to call her Suklay Diva.

The more recent viral hit that Katrina is a part of is a one-of-kind collaboration with balladeers Bugoy Drillon, Daryl Ong and Michael Pangilinan collectively known as Budakel. Their cover version of Mariah Carey-Boyz 2 Men hit, One Sweet Day garnered over 10 M views on Youtube.

Expect an unforgettable night of superb music on SiKat Ako under the direction of Paolo Valenciano.

Kat's very special guests are Gary Valenciano, Budakel and the Adlib Dancers. SiKat Ako is a joint project of Manila Genesis Entertainment, Inc. and Viva Live.
