(NEW YORK) – Why watch ASAP NY? Let me enumerate the reasons why: Because, this is the very first time ABS-CBN is bringing the ultimate showcase of world-class Filipino musical talents in the biggest city in the world of performing arts – New York!
Coco Martin and Onyok of the long-running and consistent top rating ABS-CBN teleserye (also being shown weeknights on The Filipino Channel) “Ang Probinsiyano,” graced “ASAP in New York” which happened last Saturday, September 3, 2016 at the Brooklyn Barclays Center.
Billed as special guests, the two with Vice Ganda, will be in addition to previously announced hottest performers, namely, Piolo Pascual, “Born For You” leads Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador (aka #Elnella), Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla (aka #KathNiel) of “Pangako Sa ‘Yo,” Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano (aka #LizQuen) of “Dolce Amore,” Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, Maja Salvador, Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Yeng Constantino, Angeline Quinto, Luis Manzano, Billy Crawford, Klarisse De Guzman, Kyla, KZ Tandingan, Daryl Ong, Jay-R, Jolina Magdangal, Morisette Amon, Erik Santos, Jona Viray, Jason Dy with the special participation of Ms. Charo Santos and the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Gerard Salonga! Because, ASAP, directed by the ever reliable Johnny Manahan is the longest-running (it has aired about 1,121 episodes as of presstime, per Wikipedia!) musical-variety show in the Philippines – since it first got shown on February 5, 1995!
Because ASAP is the first live entertainment program in the Philippines to be broadcast in true high-definition picture, the other being a sports program, again, according to Wikipedia! Because it’s the biggest concert-party of the year for Fil-Ams, ever! And because, it’s happening in New York!
