Look! Scenes From "My 40 Years," Sharon Cuneta's 40th Anniversary Concert
When it comes to what Megastar Sharon Cuneta's fans feel about her most epic performance to date, her husband Senator Kiko Pangilinan said it best:
"Congratulations sweetheart for the most amazing, awesome concert performance for your 40th anniversary! So proud of how you have not only endured all these years but have triumphed over hardships, brokenness, setbacks, fear and self doubt.
Last night was and is a beautiful testament to your dedication, sacrifice, hard work and your intense love for your craft, your fans and the Almighty. Proud to be there cheering you on and sharing in this your wonderful, God ordained triumph! God is good. Congratulations! More! More!"
The lawmaker (and number one fan of Sharon) was one of the thousands who turned up to watch "My 40 Years," Sharon's 40th anniversary concert, last Friday. The weekend event held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum was a success, selling out all tickets with fans avidly requesting for a second run for those who missed the show, and for good reason.
The event not only featured Sharon performing her biggest and most beloved hits of all time, but a star-studded roster of special guests, too. Everyone from Zsa Zsa Padilla to Richard Gomez, Kuh Ledesma, Basil Valdez, Regine Velasquez, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, and Christopher de Leon came to support Sharon. Their appearances were incredibly special treats to concert-goers who weren't told who the show's special guests would be.
Cheers to your 40 years in showbiz, @reallysharoncuneta. Last night was your crowning glory, may your star continue to shine! The past two days have been a happy reunion with good friends from showbiz, an industry that has been so good to us. Some of the best movies I made were with you and I am looking forward to "Three Words to Forever" which begins shooting very soon. Congratulations again on a sold out show!!!
Topping off the night was a touching tribute from Sharon's daughter, KC Concepcion, who sang "If I Could," one of her mom's favorite songs. The mother-daughter duo couldn't help but shed a tear onstage during the heartfelt moment, with many in the audience sharing the emotion.
"This song in particular 'If I Could' has been one you’ve been singing to me since I was 7 years old... I can’t believe that tonight, I got to sing this song not just alongside you - but FOR you," wrote KC in a post showing a clip of the performance.
Mom, I’ve grown up my whole life by your side, touring the world, watching you do this- performing on stage, singing your own songs for thousands of people who love you. ??? This song in particular “If I Could” has been one you’ve been singing to me since I was 7 years old... I can’t believe that tonight, I got to sing this song not just alongside you - but FOR you. ♥? . I claim my position as your eldest child, with pride and joy no matter what that You are my Mother. I will always love and admire you in ways the rest of your audience will never know, nor see. I have learned about life and passion just watching you live out yours. ?????? Congratulations on your 40 years as a true LEGEND and ICON in this country. ???? I love you. @reallysharoncuneta
Also worth mentioning is Sharon's eye-catching ensemble that gave justice to her talent and inimitable stage presence: her embellished red gown was made by Rocky Gathercole, a Filipino designer known for his statement-making designs, and was complemented by her hairstyle of loose waves, dramatic eyes, and a reddish-pink pout.
