Pinopela and Baihana's Akapela Concert Left The Audience In Awe

Last night, Pinopela and Baihana showcased world-class musical talent that left all the audience in awe. It's not everyday that we see an a capella group perform on a concert stage. It was my first time to watch a full contemporary a capella concert and, I admit, I was just amazed that a group of young Pinoy singers can deliver such amazing performances that I've only seen in Pitch Perfect and Sing-Off TV series.

In a contemporary a capella show, each member of the group hold their own microphones and that requires a lot of discipline and proper breathing is critical because one mistake can ruin the whole performance. Both groups didn't fail to amuse the audience nailing one performance over another.

The show had a good share of both international and OPM hits in their repertoire. The first act that covers international hits such as Beyonce Medley, Cartoon Medley, Skyfall, Salute + Can't Hold Us + Hey Momma Medley, and a lot more is just so fun to watch. The second act, which covers some of our OPM favorites, gave me chills. My favorite number, Salidummay, is one of the biggest surprises that night and, too bad, I didn't get to record it so you'll get what I mean. I've already heard different renditions of the song but last night's, arranged by Bing Publico, is just amazing. 

The Akapela concert was held to raise funds as Pinopela represent our country at the International A Capella Championships in Singapore where over 200 singers and 30 groups will compete in different categories. Part of the proceeds too will help the Philippine Contemporary A Capella Society, led by Krina Cayabyab and JJ Valiente Pimpinio, achieve their mission in promoting and cultivating contemporary a capella music in the Philippines and help budding a capella groups to be at their full potential.

CONGRATS Pinopela and Baihana and THANKS for giving us a great show! And GOODLUCK Pinopela on your upcoming competition! After seeing how you guys nail each performance last night, I'm sure you'll put up a good fight on the international stage and, hopefully, bring home the bacon!

If you've noticed, I'm all praises about the concert last night. I still can't get enough of it, actually! I'd like to share with you some photos and videos of the performances and you be the judge.


What do you think of their performances? Will Pinopela have a shot in this year's International A Cappela Championships?
