Pinoy Idols

One of the best-kept secrets in the world of singing? The Philippines.

Unless you’re already casually immersed to the vocal stylings of Pinoy Top 40 or have YouTube-searched “Regine Velasquez” more times than Regine Velasquez herself (diva alert!), then you may not be familiar with Filipino pop sensations Sarah Geronimo and Mark Bautista.

This multi-talented duo–with successful overseas recording careers in their own right–team up for a one-night show at the Blaisdell Concert Hall. With her Adele-to-Rihanna-to-Beyonce songbook, Sarah G.’s soaring vocals can do more runs than Usain Bolt. With his pitch-perfect stage presence, Mark B. has the balladeer-ing gymnastics to match.

Blaisdell Concert Hall, 777 Ward Ave., Thu. 9/6, 7:30pm, $55–$95, $175 VIP, [ticketmaster.com], (800) 745-3000
