The Filipino Channel (TFC) continues to spread the love among Filipinos worldwide by bringing its widely followed shows to every part of the globe.
Starting off with the JaDine Love World Tour in March, TFC now seals its destiny of being the purveyor of homegrown content as it brings the thrill and excitement of Dolce Amore: Destiny Tour this month in four cities in Europe.
According to ABS-CBN Managing Director for Europe, Middle East, and Africa Kai V. Rodriguez, TFC started reaching out to the overseas Filipino audience through events that leverage on the entertainment value of world-class programs early this year. Rodriguez says, “TFC’s thrust is to make its core service continuously evolve with the needs and wants of our customers. One of these is their call to bring the level of entertainment that each teleserye brings to the worldwide audience, live.”
Rodriguez adds, “Equipped with ABS’CBN’s content expertise, TFC tries to replicate this through our events. Dolce Amore is one of our choices because it speaks of a story of a Filipina who loses her identity in a foreign land and how she remains passionate in finding her identity. While her story is not exactly the same as every Filipino’s, it tells of our kababayans’ determination and resilience.”
This time, TFC brings no less than this season’s top-rater Dolce Amore, the main character of which is played by Liza Soberano, and she is Filipina Serena/Monica who may have been raised by her Italian adoptive parents, but continues to search for her roots and real identity. Childhood pen pal Jose Vicente “Tenten” Ibarra played by Kapamilya heartthrob Enrique Gil, like Serena is missing a link from the past. Their search brings them together and apart but their love always seems to find a way to bring them together.
In the Dolce Amore concert, LizQuen will sing the songs from the teleserye where Tenten plays a musician – “Muling Magakalayo,” “Your Love (originally sung by Alamid and interpreted by Juris).
Joining LizQuen in some of the Destiny Tour legs is Matteo Guidicelli who completes the love triangle in the soap.
Aside from the songs in Dolce Amore, the tour will also let Filipinos win an opportunity to sing with their favorite stars
by submitting 1 to 2-minute video of themselves singing “Ikaw” by Yeng Constantino or “Maging Sino ka Man” by Erik Santos with or without accompaniment and uploading them on Facebook and tagging TFC Europe’s official page.
