After five movies, one teleserye and five concerts outside the Philippines, James Reid and Nadine Lustre, more popularly known as JaDine, continue to reach new heights and capture the hearts of more Filipinos as they performed for thousands, in the last leg of their “JadIne Love World Tour” from The Filipino Channel (TFC) last month at the Max Pavilion in Singapore.
The “JadIne Love World Tour” which was kicked off in Manila, featured the highlights of the Philippine concert, as well as salient points of the Doha, Dubai, London, and Milan stops.
At the Singapore concert, as soon as the lights dimmed and Reid and Lustre appeared on stage, the screams became delightfully deafening, the excitement uncontained and the fan love undeniable for the two multi-talented performers.
The breakthrough love team treated the fans to thrilling duets from “We Found Love” by Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris, “It Might Be You,” by Stephen Bishop and “Ikaw” by Regine Velasquez.
Their individual powerhouse performances such as Lustre’s own hit “Para-paraan” and Reid’s dance medley also brought the house down but the crowd loved the real-life couple more when they performed a lyrical dance to Juan Miguel Severo’s spoken poetry and against stirring pieces such as “Stay” by Sam Smith and “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding.
Fans of the love team who was best known on television via their phenomenal “On The Wings Of Love” teleserye, were fortunate not only to witness the Asian leg of the world tour but also to witness the R & B Queen Kyla perform the official soundtrack of the teleserye, live.
Joining Kyla was The Voice of the Philippines finalist Daryl Ong, who charmed the ladies with “Stay” another song from the soundtrack plus his own hits. Much to the thrill of the ladies, Ong, went down from the stage to serenade them.
One of the much-anticipated part of the show was the Question and Answer portion where DJ Jhai’Ho threw in the most asked questions for the couple, much to the thrill of the fans.
ABS-CBN Asia Pacific Managing Director Ailene Averion was heartened to see the support of the Filipinos in Singapore not only for the kilig factor but also what one of the most popular love teams on Philippine television can bring to the table.
Averion said: “We thank the fans of JaDine who came together to show their overwhelming support not only for the thrill that the well-loved duo brings in but also for their world-class performances. She added: “Our kababayans know great artistry when they see one and their support showed this. It is TFC’s role to continue being a showcase of this talent and to continue becoming a purveyor of world-class content through its programs and special events.”
The fan love was evident at the fans’ day held the day before. JaDine spent an hour with the members of the We Love Jadine Singapore Chapter. Fans pitched in just to dress up the room and give special gifts.
Addressing the two, chapter President Katrina Banares shared:”Because of you, overseas Filipinos no longer feel homesick. We felt like that we were back in the Philippines because of OTWOL. We are all admiring you. Young or old, single or married, we became a family because of James and Nadine. A friend once said, age is measured by the friends you have and the memories you make. And because of you and Jadines, I found a new family.”
