Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival

Mickey Mouse and his band of friends, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will be performing in a music mash-up of mega proportions  as Disney Live! comes to Manila and Cebu City for the first time with its newest stage show Mickey’s Music Festival.  Concert goers will hear greatest hits from the blockbuster movies, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story remixed to rock, pop, reggae, hip-hop, jazz and country, among other jams.  Produced by Feld Entertainment, Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival brings the biggest concert experience to hit live family entertainment. This show is presented in the Philippines by Vivre Fort Entertainment Inc., Guess Kids and Fox International Channels.  

 “One song can touch millions of people around the world and Disney has been at the beat of this concept for years by making music a main ingredient of storytelling.In Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival we are celebrating with the Disney characters to a soundtrack of the latest sounds and chart-topping hits. We want our guests to walk away with lasting memories and singing these unforgettable melodies long after they leave the show.”  -said Producer and CEO of Feld Entertainment Kenneth Feld.
Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival, featuring an all star line-up of more than 25 Disney characters,   begins with audiences watching a state-of-the-art video projection of the frenzy backstage which spills onto the stage as Mickey welcomes guests to his concert tour.  Soon thereafter, they will be transported to a new world of hip hop beats, dizzying acrobatics, flying carpets and magical transformations with Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie.  Underwater is where the crowd will meet up with Ariel, Sebastian and their nautical pals to groove to the reggae rhythm. And, family and friends will stomp to the beat as Woody, Buzz and Jessie teach them how to boogie rodeo-style.  Anyone can be a member of the band as giant-sized balloons fall from the ceiling in one scene and then in the next, Disney characters are dancing in the aisles.    

“We’ve created an environment where audience members will be able to connect with the Disney stars.Within each concert moment are elements of personal interaction and they will be harmonizing, dancing, laughing and having an outrageously good time with the characters right there in their city.”-said Alana Feld, Producer and Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment

The "-ber" Month:The sign that Christmas is Coming to Town

I was thinking a while if what is the best to write for my blog. And suddenly I heard a Christmas music. I wonder why my neighbor plays those kind of music and I just realize that it is already September 1. This day signifies that Christmas is coming now in the town and that is what I would like to write about now.

Christmas Day is my top favorite day in a year(second is New Year and third is my birthday, Etc....). Every time when the first "-ber" month arrives people always think that it is the start of Christmas. One of the common things that they usually do is greeting each other a "Merry Christmas". It really sounds good that somebody will tell you that. Another sign also that Christmas is really coming is that radio station starts to play Christmas song. Whenever I hear this kind of music it feels like I am refreshed and feels like you don't have a problem. It makes you jive and sing along with the songs.

Another sign that the first "-ber" month is the start of Christmas season is when you see children caroling in your house. Before I get irritated when they do a caroling in our house but I realize that is nice to see those children in front of you singing Christmas song and I sometimes laugh because their lyrics are wrong.

One of my favorite Christmas song is entitled Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson. But the video this is revived by Babyface and sounds more modernize.

Advance Merry Christmas to all. (P.S. Don't forget my Christmas  Gift.. LOL)
