The set-up: Three young Filipina singers with strikingly pristine voices sing a medley of timeless OPM hits--an exquisite highlight of a musical special broadcast on TV a few years back. An audio clip of their live performance is posted below.
The challenge: Guess who these three angelic voices are. All of them are (or were) well-known, especially in the fields of music and theater. Keen observers of the local music scene should find it easy to identify them based on the quality of their voices. First one who gets all three names right (in no particular order) wins.
The prize: P2,000 worth of gift checks--P1,000 each from Levi's and Max's Restaurant.
1. The medley covers the following songs, in the order they are sung: Sana'y Maghintay ang Walang Hanggan, Kahit Na, Mahawi Man ang Ulap, Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin, Ikaw Lamang and Bituing Walang Ningning. The arrangement is by Ryan Cayabyab.
2. The three female vocalists alternate or sing together on all of the songs EXCEPT Mahawi Man ang Ulap, which is sung by a (non-professional) group of young girls. For purposes of this contest, you need not identify this group--just the three lead singers.
3. All three singers came before the "Champions," and they've also appeared in theater productions at one point or the other.
Aside from the audio clip, I also have a video grab of this performance (an even lovelier experience). The vid will be posted, with proper credits, as soon as someone correctly identifies the three lead artists.
Post your guesses in the comments section, and may the best music fan win! (Oh, you qualify whether you're in my Blogspot or Multiply--though I hope the few show-biz/in-the-know readers of my Multiply page wouldn't squeal, haha.)
