The King and the Diva Beyond Classic @ the Resorts World Manila

Amidst a Valentine concert season full of the standard love songs, here's a refreshing treat: a concert that features two of the most seasoned performers, both known for their style and singular personas, singing songs that aren't necessarily about love, but about the passions they have embraced throughout their careers.

The Diva, Kuh Ledesma, and the King, Leo Valdez, are doing just that in a show that brings together the wit, sophistication and style that have made them enduring icons in the Philippine entertainment scene.

Their repertoire for Valentine's is a mix of love songs, revivals, standards and their own OPM hits, as well as glimpses into their other passions – Kuh is an accomplished painter while Leo is an avid photographer. One memorable medley has all the hits that Kuh and Leo made popular, while another medley will surely have the audience dancing to disco hits. In one suite, both Kuh and Leo give current pop tunes their own distinctive treatment.

In a Broadway suite, Kuh and Leo will revisit their forays into musical theater, with songs from Rama Hari, Miss Saigon, The King and I and Evita. The King and the Diva: Beyond Classic is a concert for discriminating, sophisticated audiences who want something more than just a hit parade of love songs on Valentine's Day. Such style, substance and sophistication can only come from a unique a paring such as theirs. 

Also performing is Tanya Manalang, who returns from London where she is preparing for her role in the West End revival of "Miss Saigon." The show is under the musical direction of Homer Flores.
