EDWIN MCCAIN & TAYLOR DAYNE in BACK2BACK Ultimate Concert at the SM Arena

it was such a rare privilege to see and interview Edwin McCain and Taylor Dayne face to face to promote their concert tour in the Philippines which kicked off last night at Waterfront Hotel in Cebu and on June 1 at the new SM Arena. i was really starstruck because i've been singing their songs I'll Be and Love Will Lead You Back.
we will hear their greatest hits at the Back2Back concert. and i got to ask some personal questions to them. it was Edwin McCain's first time here in the Philippines and really thankful of the warm welcome and hospitality of the people. haven't tried any dishes yet but hesitant to try our own "balot" (duck embryo). he is enjoying his fatherhood with 2 kids whom unfortunately cannot come with him here because of sickness. but they will try to come here on vacation and experience the islands. his "I'll Be" is such a special gift. he just tried to air it on video and the rest is history. but who was Edwin McCain before the stardom? when he was about 8, he was singing in the church choir as a soprano. then, building a band in highschool started his singing career. he transferred singing in cruise ships where he met other Filipino travelers telling and insisting him to come in the Philippines. and now, here he is. watch him sing I'll Be in this excerpt:

Taylor Dayne remembers her first visit here in Manila where she had struggled about 2 hours of traffic. but now, she was amazed how she got quicker to her hotel after arriving at the airport. her single Love Will Lead You Back is a staple in our videoke line ups and one of her Billboard hits. she will bring us on our feet again with her dance singles and fall in love with her ballads. her 25 years in the industry featured the songs which young parents grew up on. they were regarded as the songs of their lives.

the collaboration of Edwin and Taylor is not new to their followers. they have been singing together 5 or 6 shows in the United States and entertaining fans all over. Taylor is even more excited performing in the brand new Mall of Asia Arena and serenade more than it's capacity. a front act by our RnB prince, JayR starts the concert.
