To celebrate the film’s anniversary, Disney is planning a major musical concert in November at the Staples Arena in Los Angeles. Noted celebrities have been invited to perform the songs and musical numbers from the film.
World boxing champion Manny Pacquiao has been tapped by Disney to perform the song ‘Let it Go’ originally sung by Idina Medel, a.k.a. Adelle Dazeem.
“I am extremely humbled and honored for having been chosen to sing this song classic,” Pacquiao said, “I will do my very best to do justice to this great composition by Filipino American composer Robert Lopez.
Here’s a video clip of Pacquiao rehearsing ‘Let It Go’ in preparation for the big concert and showcasing his falsetto skills:
Cupertino, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – There are two things one would find in every Filipino home: a rice cooker and a karaoke machine. Either one or both could probably explain why Filipinos are some of the most musically-talented in the world.
Well, Apple is cashing in on this phenomenon when it launches its iPad Water in the Philippines beginning September 9. The Cupertino-based company has chosen the Philippines as its test market for this new exciting product.
Now, even the most shy but musically-talented Filipinos will have no more excuse to not showcase their talent, albeit in the shower.
The new iPad Water comes with a waterproof cover and an installed karaoke app that would make singing in the shower a breeze and an absolute delight. It automatically connects to the Internet where one could easily download the latest hit songs- from Taylor Swift to Bruno Mars. The shower head automatically converts into a microphone through bluetooth technology.
The new iPad Water will retail for PH 9,000 (pesos) or approximately $200.
