MANILA, Philippines — Morissette proved she is a true Filipino pride as she showcased her world-class talent at her first major solo concert at the Big Dome.

Fans applauded as the young diva gave it all out in every performance.

Asia’s Phoenix also delighted Wishers with her live performance of the songs that brought her to the international scene through her Wishclusives.

Morissette amazed not only her Filipino audience but also her foreign fans.

Some international YouTube reactors flew to the Philippines from the United States of America and Australia just to see the concert.

“It’s definitely worth the trip,” said Shaylem Te Paiho, a YouTube reactor. “It’s a completely different experience hearing her sing live and it’s like even better than what I could have imagined so I’m very happy to be here,” he added.

“Hearing her voice, just hearing it live kind of sucks you in. You just kind of get hypnotized,” said Gabe Bermudez, one of the YT reactors from Adobo Sandwich channel.

“You’re amazing. You’re putting the Philippines on the map. I mean she stuns so much during the Asia’s Song Festival and just really getting out there,” said Kayla Bermudez, also a reactor from Adobo Sandwich.

“I know that she’s becoming more well-known through the Wish bus and in America and just keep doing what she’s doing. She’s amazing,” added Kyla.

Apart from her supporters, Morissette thanked Wish 107.5, the producer of her concert.

She also promised to sing again on the Wish bus for her fans.

“To the whole Wish family and to the whole BMPI, maraming, maraming salamat po. Kuya Daniel, thank you so much po sa tiwala niyo. Unang-una syempre sa Wish talaga nagsimula iyon eh. Nagbukas po talaga iyong audience ko because of Wish and I was brought to the international scene because of Wish also so I’m very, very excited to be back on the Wish bus and to share again my talent doon.

“To the whole Wish family and to the whole BMPI, thank you very much. Kuya Daniel, thank you so much for your trust. First of all, Wish was the one that started it. My audience opened because of Wish and I was brought to the international scene because of Wish also so I’m very, very excited to be back on the Wish bus and to share again my talent there,” said Morissette. — Leslie Longboen | UNTV News and Rescue
