♫♪♫Two drifters off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end
Waiting ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river and me♪♪♫
Haha, don’t get me wrong and don’t be deceived by the title of this blog. I am just inspired to write about Sound of Love, a musical concert ( a replay actually) I watched yesterday while ironing. I must admit I seldom watch TV because I am more into listening to the radio and reading when I have time. Yesterday though, I found this PBO channel with Mark Bautista, one of our most talented local singers belting out When I Fall In Love with such a cool and powerful voice that I was mesmerized. I was glued to the TV screen until the end. It was held at the Music Museum on August 10 last year and he said between songs that it was his birthday. There is always something too about seeing a live band accompanying the singer, the music was just so lovely and beautiful. And his voice, wow, it fits to a T all those ballads of old that somehow remind you of dreams, first love and lovely memories. What am I saying? It’s his 10th year in the music world.
I had goose bumps when he sang Moon River. He also sang Bato Sa Buhangin, an old-time favorite. I dream of owning a copy of this CD album and maybe relive the feeling of crying (do you also cry when you’re happy?) and at the same time having that wide smile because I witnessed something so beautiful and so lovely.
Mark Bautista, you rock!
