There’s nothing more romantic and kilig when the real-life couple, TJ Monterde and KZ Tandingan who are both Bisaya and popular nationwide sing your favorite Bisaya songs.
Last February 17, 2018, Saturday during #VivoxTJxKZ concert, TJ Monterde and KZ Tandingan set the mood for a romantic and memorable evening with Bisaya songs as their final act.
As soon as TJ Monterde asked for permission if they could sing popular Vispop songs, the audience couldn’t get any crazier. He started with the famous hugot song Hahahahasula by Kurt Fick followed by Atik ra by Jacky Chang this time sang by KZ Tandingan.
Notice in the video in the middle of KZ’s Atik ra performance, TJ was handed with a bouquet of flowers which he kept hidden at his back. It was then during Balay ni Mayang by Marianne Dungog & Kyle Wong song when he surprised KZ. It was also during this song when TJ emphasized one line from the song “Ania na ka sa among balay” with a gesture of extending his hand towards the audience which everyone knew right away what he meant that KZ Tandingan is finally home because TJ Monterde’s home is Cagayan de Oro. Everyone didn’t see that coming.
The final song was another duet Labyu Langga by Jerika Teodorico and ended with TJ’s sweet kiss on KZ’s forehead and a warm hug.(…ah sila na gyud)
Here’s the video below:
One thing for sure, there will always be a different feeling when songs of your native tongue are being sang on stage. The hugot is always tagos sa heart.
