She came, she saw, she conquered the hearts of fans once again.
Still a top draw, Superstar Nora Aunor had screaming fans on their feet Sunday at the height of the festive “Salamat Kapatid! The All-Star TV5 Fans Day” at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Fans who braved the incessant rains to make it to the day-long event hosted by Mr. Fu and “Talentadong Pinoy” Hall of Famer Makata Tawanan formed a tight press around the multi-awarded veteran actress, last seen on TV5’s “Sa Ngalan Ng Ina”, hoping to get a kiss or a touch at least.
Ate Guy graciously allowed a few to get close before taking the stage to thank them and announced that more projects with TV5 were lined up for her this year.
She was not the only one who made the fans happy that day, though.
“Talentadong Pinoy” alumni showed off their skills during the meet and greet, with ventriloquist Wanlu and his monkey puppet Enchong Go making the audience laugh.
Beatbox Gor sang a different kind of melody using his beatboxing abilities, while Leah Patricio and Rhyzza Nicol Kafilas crooned to the tunes of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” and Alicia Keys’ “No One,” respectively.
Yoyo Tricker, the first Ultimate Talentado, used a number of yoyos, as well as his knack for dancing, to wow the audience.
From “Enchanted Garden,” there was Rufa Mae Quinto, Alex Gonzaga, Alice Dixson, BB Gandanghari, Gladys Reyes, and Edgar Allan Guzman, among others. Rufa Mae sang Shakira’s “Underneath Your Clothes” while Alex got the crowd going with Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” All cast members invited the audience to tune in to the first eco-fantasya series in the country.
Lorna Tolentino of “Third Eye” was a breath of fresh air, gorgeous even as she was dressed simply in a white blouse and jeans. She was joined by co-star Jenny Miller, who encouraged the audience to watch the suspense series.
Jay Manalo and Bing Loyzada of “Isang Dakot Na Luha” and “Felina,” respectively, were at the fans day as well.
The “Kapitan Awesome” team led by Empoy, Andrew E., Martin Escudero, and Alwyn Uytingco performed an energetic dance number and had their photos taken with the crowd.
The “Face to Face” dance crew, as well as co-host Hans Mortel, engaged the fans in a fun game, too.
Booths dedicated to various TV5 shows were set up by the entrance of Smart Araneta for the fans to enjoy, as well. Pre-loved items of TV5 stars like Danita Paner, Nadine Samonte, JC De Vera, Tuesday Vargas and Long Mejia were also sold at a bazaar in the same location, the proceeds of which would go to TV5’s Alagang Kapatid Foundation.
