Wow! Two of my favorite acts are coming here in Manila for a concert before this month ends! Lifehouse on the 26th and Daughtry on the 29th.
Lifehouse skyrocketed to fame via their debut album No Name Face on 2000 which produced the #1 alternative hit Hanging By A Moment. I remember those days I got crazy for that amazing song! Back in 2005, the ballad You And Me, from their self titled album, was such a hit as well. I equally loved that song, the wonderfully written lyrics really gotten into me. And now with their new album Who We Are, the band gets back to basics, their roots which made them form their group. I am not a super fan (unlike two of my friends who already bought VIP tickets haha!), but I really like this band! Too bad I won’t be able to watch them live because I am saving up for something. I will just probably sing along from afar, while they were performing.
Chris Daughtry, on the other hand, was my favorite Idol back in their time on the 5th season. I really rooted for him that’s why I am so upset when he got eliminated. But he proved the fact that you need not to be the grand winner to reach the top. His debut album went four times platinum, produced hits such as It’s Not Over, Home, and Over You, received a Grammy nomination, and even topped hit charts. Clearly he accomplished more than Katharine McPhee and the grand winner Taylor Hicks (seriously, where is he now?!). Fast forward to 2008, Chris together with his band will pay a visit here to wow their uber exciting Pinoy fans. With his credentials alone, it is an understatement that this event would be a huge success.
