Once again, Coca-Cola made happy history with a massive nationwide concert party for the Filipino youth to celebrate its 100th year in the Philippines – the Coca-Cola Concert ng Bayan! Coca-Cola also made my wife’s birthday a historical one. March 23rd was my wife’s most memorable birthday as she was able to meet her in person Sarah Geronimo. The fan girl in her awakened, shouting at the top of her lungs; beating the Popsters by a decibel.
The event started as early as 3PM hosted by comic duo Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola, and later at night by the MYX VJs. We were still in Bulacan at that time visiting relatives we missed, Rico Blanco with Never the Strangers and Itchyworms, Sandwich with Jay Durias, 6-Cycle Mind with Eunice & Kleggy, and Callalily with Ebe Dancel. We got there in time for Wolfgang, Gloc 9 and Parokya ni Edgar.
We were already getting excited as the next performer will be Somedaydream, Sarah Geronimo and Gary Valenciano.
Then they sang the fun and upbeat, chart-topping Coca-Cola 100 Years anniversary anthem, Tuloy.
To top of the night, Coca-Cola brought the international R&B superstar came all the way from the other side of the globe to be part of Philippine music history and to open and share the sound of happiness across the whole nation with Coca-Cola – Craig David!
The concert didn’t end there, a few more bands will play until 3am.
No question, the epic Coca-Cola Concert ng Bayan signals the start of a summer filled with even bigger surprises as the 100th year celebration of Coca-Cola gets to a whole new high. And we can only be sure our favorite beverage brand shall continue to collaborate with every single Pinoy to give the whole nation nothing less than refreshing happiness!
