Wait, what? For real?
Two Filipinas will join Grammy award-winning English popstar Dua Lipa for a concert at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition in Jakarta on March 26. The concert was organized by e-commerce website Lazada for its 7th anniversary.
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and actress-singer Nadine Lustre will be sharing the stage with the “New Rules” singer at the Super Party concert, Lazada says in a statement sent to media.
Last month, Lipa took home the Grammy award for Best New Artist and for Best Dance Recording for the song “Electricity.” And the Philippines’ representatives are successful in their own right too.
Wurtzbach took home the Miss Universe crown in 2015, the first Filipina to do so in 42 years. She was the third Pinay to bring home the Miss Universe crown, followed by Catriona Gray who won the pageant in December.
Lustre, on the other hand, has a solid fanbase thanks to the 2015 TV series On the Wings of Love which she starred in with her on and off-screen partner, actor-singer boyfriend James Reid. She currently has 6 million followers on Instagram and has dabbled in beauty and fashion as well.
The concert is only open to Lazada’s invited guests but fans can catch the action on the Lazada app starting 8pm. Users from the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand can watch the concert from their phones.
Also sharing the stage with the three women are Filipino singer Sam Concepcion; Indonesia’s Agnez Mo and Nadya Hutagalung; and Vietnam’s Dong Nhi, Tran Tranh, and Allan Wu.
Other Southeast Asian acts include Urboy TJ, Hael Husaini, Saykoji, Ismail Izzani, THELIONCITYBOY, Angger Dimas, and Dipha Barus.
