Note: Momi Berlin was invited to an afternoon of singing and dancing over good food and talks all about Vina @ Thirty.
It has been said that in a room of 23 people, there is a 50-50 chance of two individuals having the same birthday. In a room of 75, there is a 99.9% chance of two people matching. That afternoon, we were about a hundred or less and yes, two remarkable girls share the same birthday.
I love her because of her pretty face. I love her more because of her soulful voice. And I love her best because of her groove and toned body. Perhaps, add to that, we have the same birthday. She may not know me but I love Vina Morales.
I met her in person yesterday at the press conference of “Vina @ Thirty” at the Chivz Lounge Bar. A known world-class performer, she all the more earned my admiration with her groove and powerful voice. She is set to perform at the KIA Theater this October 14. This is to celebrate her 30 years in show business. The show will also be a birthday concert for her as she turns 41 this October 17.
The sultry singer-actress will not only sing but will move and dance as well. Johnny Manahan directs while Teacher Georcelle Dapat-Sy of G-Force choreographs. Definitely high-energy dance numbers are expected which will keep the audience on their feet.
“Vina @ thirty” will have friends Gary Valenciano, Ogie Alcacid, and Robin Padilla as guests. Her family Shaina Magdayao and Ceana (her little princess) will also grace the show.
Back at the Chivz Lounge Bar yesterday, Vina sang and danced- much to everyone’s delight. The short number was fantastic, indeed entertaining. She wouldn’t be touted as one of Philippines’ best performers for nothing. She is so passionate about her craft it resonates in her voice and radiates in her every move. Perhaps that’s the reason that I love her aside from the fact that we share the same birthday.
