More than 20 years since the hit movie Sister Act came out, its Broadway musical adaptation produced by the movie’s lead actress Whoopi Goldberg has finally reached Manila. Last June 29, Wednesday, the gala night for “Sister Act” was held at the Theatre at Solaire courtesy of Ovation Productions. The musical has been having much anticipation since it was announced, and last night theatergoers flocked to the venue to witness firsthand the glittering show. And one notable star spotted there was Soul Supreme KZ – who is quite obviously a total performer herself – together with TJ Monterde.
Other famous personalities seen at the gala night were veteran singer Jamie Rivera, singer-songwriter Joey Albert, and jazz singer Jacqui Magno. There was indeed a decent turnout of great music artists at the “Sister Act” gala night, but that’s only understandable considering the expected world-class quality of the production.
After watching the musical, perhaps it’s alright to speculate that KZ was able to pick up some ideas on how to enhance her artistry using what she saw from “Sister Act.” Only time will tell, of course.
