Can’t believe that it has been 10 years since the very first time I met Christian Bautista! He was just starting his career in the industry while I was about to finish college. That very first time took place in Gensan, the same place where we just had the interview over coffee.
You can just imagine how happy and giddy I was spending few hours with him talking about what has happened in that span of time.
Coming from the success of his portrayal as the prince charming in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, Christian will be seen again on stage for the adaptation of ‘Ghost the Musical’ March of this year, originally by Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Tony Goldwyn, and Whoopi Goldberg. A good start for a rooster like him in the year of the horse.
In Feng Shui, the Rooster and the Horse make a good pair. The Horse’s unpredictable nature wouldn’t be a very natural match for the Rooster’s exacting perfectionism and success. In fact, Christian will come out with a new studio album (his 9th), this time under Universal Records featuring covers of Movie Theme Songs. He might also have a concert with Richard Poon early this year.
From a runner-up in a singing show, to being a multi-platinum artist and respectable stage actor and to be acclaimed as an Asian Sensation, Christian Bautista is definitely the most successful singer of his generation. He has well established his position to becoming the next Icon in the music industry.
He is one of the nicest and the smartest celebrities I know. Despite his international success, he never fails still to be accommodating and welcoming to fans and supporters. He talks with sense and truth. Indeed like a dream Prince Charming to many Cinderellas out there.
Much has happened in that 10 years.
A decade of music for him and a decennium of my admiration towards him.
Christian who has fear of failing now wants to apply all the learning he had from the past. This time he wants to control the music and his work and not the other way around. He wants to sing more original songs. And he will try to enjoy life as much as he can and not just let another 10 years pass without the adventure and thrill.
P.S.: To Christian Bautista!
I Love You! Cheers to another Decade! You’ll forever have me! Your SuperMorgy!
