For two consecutive years, Karylle showcased her singing prowess as a beautiful ‘higad’ who had the most unlikely story with an ‘ipis’. Her world-class originally produced musical play with Jhong Hilario greatly impressed everyone and they were named champions in last year’s Magpasikat. Now, in her team with Ryan Bang, Karylle spearheaded a splendid, rousing musical performance.
Featuring the heartwarming story of Ryan, Karylle and the rest of her team gave us a superb performance that told a message of hope to everyone who aspires to achieve great things in life. Being the main star in their performance, Ryan emotionally laid down the story of his life, how he struggled living in the Philippines alone and how he came to find his It’s Showtime family, who lifted him and helped him rise above the challenges he faced. As he delivered his inspiring story, Ryan and the rest of the team gave us the ultimate concert experience by performing a series of sing and dance numbers of famous K-pop songs and some originally composed songs for their team.
Their group gave us a bright vision of the future, making a Korean adaptation of It’s Showtime in 2029 happen on stage. Wearing colorful, futuristic costumes, Team Karylle-Ryan and the amazing Tawag ng Tanghalan artists performed some renowned K-pop hits such as Blackpink’s “Kill This Love”, “Ddu-du Ddu-du Du”, and BTS’s “Boy with Luv”. Ryan’s shining moment on stage took place as he gave a solo rendition of the BTS song “IDOL”, and then performed a Pinoy rap song, which he personally composed based on his personal experiences in the Philippines. As their performance’s grand finale, the team sang the catchy song titled “Pabuhat”, composed by Jonathan Manalo, Tito Cayamanda, Yael Yuzon, and Yumi Lacsamana.
