Hi Tomtom413 wrote: How did the crowd's reaction to Isaac's performance (and his to it) compare to the response he got in Atlanta last year?
Also, do you know why they performed some Christmas songs in this concert?
I think the biggest reaction to Isaac's several solos, which included the "Wexford Carol"(with Camden), "Wonderful World" and "Angel" was to "The Prayer". The lady next to me in Cebu even started joining in until I gave her the evil eye. At the interval in Manila I also overheard lots of praise for "The Wexford Carol". Isaac, as usual, reacted with his familiar modest smile.
Why the Christmas songs? I don't know, but the Filipinos are a very religious people (80% Catholic) and I guess Christmas wasn't that long ago. Besides both "Wexford" and "Angels we have heard" are excellent choices to showcase the remarkable singing talents of the boys and the arrangement genius of RP. By the way I think it was Taichi who did the high descant in "Angels".
Looking forward to seeing you in Korea. It promises to be an excellent series of concerts.
