5 Supremely Awesome KZ Tandingan Wishclusives That Will Make You Want to Watch the SUPREME Dubai concert
Mar 11, 2019
From being a regular Davaoeña dreamer to rocking out the international stage as a sought-after singing sensation, there are probably no other fitting words to describe KZ Tandingan’s musicality other than simply “supreme.”
KZ has had a full 2018. She represented the country in China’s hit singing competition, “Singer 2018,” where she competed with prominent music personalities, including UK’s Jessie J. Last November, KZ dished out an enthralling performance during the “1MX Abu Dhabi 2018” event.
And she welcomed 2019 with a bang — she performed alongside the country’s top songstresses Moira, Julie Anne San Jose, and Morissette in the 4th Wish Music Awards night. Recently, she was chosen as the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ new music ambassador for the National Arts Month.
And before this year’s first quarter is over, KZ is making sure that she kicks things up even a notch higher.
KZ will be reigning supreme in her first-ever solo concert in Dubai. Presented by La Verdad Events Management, in cooperation with Wish 107.5, the “Supreme: KZ Tandingan” concert, featuring the Philippines’ King of R&B Jay R and singer-songwriter TJ Monterde, will take place on March 22, 2019, 7:30 p.m. GST, at the Dubai World Trade Centre Arena.
But before the long-awaited show in the Emirate, let’s indulge in superb music the versatile singer has staged across Wish 107.5’s platforms. Here are five supreme Wishclusives by the supremely talented KZ Tandingan — that will make you want to fly off to Dubai to watch her perform live:
1. Rolling in the Deep
With over 8 million views and counting, KZ’s jaw-dropping revamp of Adele’s smash single makes us believe that she could have it all.
KZ’s rendition of this upbeat Adele classic showcased her excellent rapping and adlib skills, as well as her creativity and authenticity. This is the same track that won her the Singer 2018 competition against Jessie J.
This Wishclusive performance is a tribute to well-loved band UDD, her ultimate musical heroes. KZ shared that after hearing the band’s hit track “Oo,” she was so impressed and inspired by them that it empowered her to sing again after almost giving it up because she can no longer hit high notes after undergoing a throat operation.
In a Facebook post, the singer revealed that the song was not originally included in her Roadshow setlist on August 1, 2016. But thankfully, she decided to render her own touching rendition of “Tadhana,” which has now amassed over 46 million views.
3. Two Less Lonely People In The World
KZ’s version of the ‘80s love song “Two Less Lonely People In The World” sends sweet chills down everyone’s spines and takes listeners to a sentimental trip down memory lane, back when soft rock duo Air Supply used to dominate the airwaves with their hit tracks.
At almost 60 million YouTube views, the official soundtrack of “Kita Kita (I See You),” a romantic comedy film starring Alessandra De Rossi and Empoy Marquez, showcases Tandingan’s simple yet delicate interpretation of the Air Supply classic.
4. Ikaw At Ako Pa Rin
Crossing one of the long-requested items off their fans’ wish lists, this Wish Bus collaboration between KZ and acoustic heartthrob TJ Monterde sends off kilig vibes from the pair’s real-life musical and romantic chemistries.
The ultimate LDR anthem, “Ikaw at Ako Pa Rin” talks about how happy it is to be coming home to the love of your life. This song beautifully highlights how music and love are both powerful enough to bind two lovers who may be miles apart.
5. Pero Atik Ra
“Pero Atik Ra” is a Visayan hit song first popularized by pop act Jacky Chang, which talks about just how difficult it is to move on from someone who broke your heart.
The easy-listening tune combined with the powerful vocals of two of the finest OPM artists in the country — KZ Tandingan and Morissette — makes for the ultimate hugot-inducing song.
This Wishclusive collaboration was performed live at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum during the 4th Wish 107.5 Music Awards, and has already garnered half a million YouTube views to date.
“Supreme: KZ Tandingan” in Dubai is happening on March 22, 2019, 7:30 p.m. GST, at the Dubai World Trade Centre Arena, presented by La Verdad Events Management, the international events management partner of Wish 107.5, and co-presented by NOON.com.
