Lani Misalucha and Morissette Amon are set to tell their stories in a concert entitled A Lani Morissette – Musical Journey, as they sing a medley of unexpected song choices that showcase their versatility, vocal range, and own style of performance.
At the grand media launch for the concert, the seasoned chanteuse and rising vocal powerhouse were hesitant to provide any details of the concert repertoire but the two assured that they have prepared for the show really well as they wanted to give the audience a great show.
“We want to give them a show they’ll enjoy and remember. We included songs that we usually sing but, we also chose ones that aren’t expected for that surprise factor,” Morissette told reporters.
“After the concert, we want our fans to leave feeling good, and with them is the message that we want to convey: We all go through different journeys in life, but if we focus on the plans that we have, we can achieve them,” Lani added.
According to the senior singer, they’ve been receiving a few requests from fans on what they would want to see and hear during the collaboration concert.
“They’re asking for a showdown, although we don’t want the concert to appear like a showdown between Morissette and I, we might give the audience a little of what they’re asking for,” Lani mused and asked reporters to share the news about their concert happening at The Theatre at Solaire on Sept. 22 and 23.
As for preparations, the two singers reveal where they are at in their respective careers. Being rather new under a bigger spotlight, Morissette admits that even though she has spent some time with Lani before, she still gets shy around her.
“It’s important that when you’re collaborating with another artist, there is that rapport. I just tell myself that, ‘Sette, you can do this. Don’t be shy.’”
Lani, on the other hand, says that she will have to prepare physically to keep up with the 22-year old. “I don’t have the same stamina that I used to when I was younger, so I really need to prepare myself.”
Despite the contrasts between both artists, they are on the same page when it comes to what they want their fans to experience.
“Lani and Morissette are on different stages of their musical journey. Lani is at the pinnacle of her career while, Morissette is still venturing into hers,” says Audie Gemora, Solaire’s Director for Entertainment.
Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha moved to the United States in 2000 and began performing in various Las Vegas hotel and casino properties, gaining the name “New Siren of the Strip”. The singer, reaching the high point of her Philippine success, made the bold move to spread her wings wider to only shine brighter under the City of Lights.
She is known by many for her high-octave vocal range, and iconic songs such as “Sana Dalawa Ang Puso Ko”, “Tunay na Mahal”, “Araw-Araw, Gabi-Gabi” and “Bukas Nalang Kita Mamahalin”. She is back for a short while to visit family and to fulfill commitments here in the Philippines.
Meanwhile, the young Morissette Amon started in Cebu and made it to Manila’s rigorous talent shows where big voices dominate and are always in fierce competition. After countless attempts at victory, she rose from the ashes like a phoenix to claim her rightful place. She recently reached a milestone with her first solo concert, Morissette is Made held at the Big Dome, and is now being toured around the world.
She rose to stardom for her powerful vocal range catapulting her to become one of the country’s new generation of power belters.
A Lani Morissette—Musical Journey proves to be a story of reinvention that will relate to an audience that has their own challenges to face and to inspire them to make the decisions that they fear to take.
