Love Month in the UAE reached the peak of sweetness as GMA stars Carla Abellana, Aicelle Santos, and Andrea Torres shared the love with Pinoys the Kapuso way during the “Pusong Pinoy sa Dubai”.
The three talented ladies regaled the Overseas Filipino Workers and other members of the audience with an exquisite celebration of love and beauty last February 15 at the Sheikh Rashid Auditorium in Dubai.
Andrea opened the program with a nostalgic song number followed by a lively dance performance which kept the audience wanting for more.
Carla, who looked graceful as always, gave a heart-warming rendition of “When You Say Nothing At All”. She also hosted a classic Pinoy Jack En Poy game where select members of the audience competed for prizes courtesy of GMA Pinoy TV.
Soul Songstress Aicelle proved why she is one of GMA’s most powerful vocalists with her stellar interpretation of “Go The Distance” and a song from her album. The crowd was also surprised when Aicelle performed a duet with Consul General Paul Raymond Cortes; easily becoming one of the show’s highlights.
To end the show with a bang, Carla, Aicelle, and Andrea looked very regal as they paraded in magnificent gowns created by Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer Ryan Pacioles of Atelier Zuhra With help from OSN, which carries GMA Pinoy TV in the Middle East, the three artists also had the chance to meet and take photos with fans after the event.
Carla, a first-timer in Dubai, was very grateful to the Filipino community for the warm welcome, especially to GMA Pinoy TV for giving her a chance to meet the Kapuso abroad during the season of love. “I’m grateful that my first trip to Dubai is for work. Nag-enjoy kami at happy na na-entertain namin ‘yung mga Kapuso at kababayan natin dito,” she said.
Aicelle, on the other hand, shared her unforgettable experience in Dubai. “Hindi ko malilimutan ang pag-rampa ko gamit ang world-class na damit na gawa ng ating kababayan dito sa Dubai. At siyempre ‘yung pakikiawit sa atin ng mga Kapuso at ni Con Gen (Paul Raymond Cortes) na napakahusay!,” Aicelle said.
For Andrea, seeing a lot of Filipinos in Dubai made the experience a lot more fun and unforgettable. She said that the trip was all worth it. “Nakakatuwa kasi parang hindi kami umalis ng Pilipinas kasi warm ‘yung mga tao. Nakakatuwa na ‘pag kausap mo sila, feeling mo magkakilala na kayo ng matagal kasi makuwento at masayahin talaga sila,” Andrea acknowledged.
The successful “Pusong Pinoy sa Dubai” was made possible by the Philippine Consulate in Dubai and the Northern Emirates with the exclusive media sponsorship of GMA Pinoy TV, along with OSN and Volcano Events.
