Coca-Cola has launched a music-centered promo for entertainment-starved OPM fans thru its "PEEL MO PANALO PROMO." It's run like the usual raffle promo -- merch, load, cash given away weekly, with a grand prize of P1M at some point.
To Coke's credit however, this year's alternative to the Coke Studio concert series is definitely more than just a raffle promo. It features the best OPM singers talking about their experiences during the quarantine -- stories of loneliness and despair, love and hope, inspiration and triumph. Each episode is capped with a pre-recorded live performance by the featured artist.
For the episode last September 26, KZ Tandingan talked about how all her plans had been put on hold due to the quarantine, and how much she misses her family whom she hasn't seen since the start of the lockdown. Yet, KZ said that it has been the most productive period of her life, as she taught herself to produce her own music and write her own songs during the pandemic.
Watch KZ's new version of "Imposible" here at 6:03.
Coke Studio 2020 features Sarah G, KZ Tandingan, December Avenue, Shanti Dope, Unique Salonga and Moira Dela Torre. Sam Concepcion hosts the weekly show. A new show premieres every Saturday at 4 p.m on Coke's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/CokeStudioPH.
