Filipino Lambs – as what Mariah Carey fans are called, are all excited to once again see the biggest-selling female artist of all time – Mariah Carey, perform LIVE in Manila after 11 years!
Counting it down, there are only 35 days left until "The Elusive Chanteuse" arrives here in Manila and her thousands of fans are already looking forward to flock to the Mall of Asia Arena on October 28 and sing along to their all-time favorite Mariah Carey hits!
If you're still having second-thoughts on whether or not you are going to watch this once in a lifetime opportunity to see a music icon perform LIVE on the Philippine concert stage, MYXph.com got the help of Mariah Carey Philippines
– the longest-running Filipino Mariah Carey fans club, and the biggest Mariah Carey group in Asia, to come up with 10 reasons why Mariah's "The Elusive Chanteuse" show in Manila is worth-watching!
Check them out below!
1. Her Voice
Mariah is one of the best live performers the industry has to offer, and to hear her belt out those high notes live and feel the emotions of her songs is something that you really shouldn't miss. Of course, you know you'd want to hear her signature whistle!
2. Mingling With Her Fans
She always shows her affection and sincere gratitude to her fans, either by asking for random requests, doing improvisations, extended chatting with the audience, and asking lucky Lambs to come up on stage!
3. A Setlist Full Of Surprises
There are several predictions that the setlist for "The Elusive Chanteuse" show will be a lot different from her previous concerts. Mariah has been repeatedly tweeting recently about her so-called #BattleOfTheSongs for the tour where she seems to weigh on what she will perform in her upcoming tour for the first time.
4. For The Nostalgia
A lot of her fans grew up listening to and singing her songs and to see Mariah perform these songs live would bring all those memories back.
5. Signature Dance Moves
We rarely see Mimi bust a move during her live performances on TV, but she would always show off her adorable dance moves whenever she's on tour! She may not have those heart-stopping grooves, but isn't it nice to see her do the choreographies we've seen in her music videos for "Honey," "Heartbreaker" and "Shake It Off"?
6. A Great Story To Tell In The Future
In the next 10, 20, 30 or even more years to come, being able to see one of the most-accomplished artists in the music industry perform live is really a great story to tell to your children and even your grandchildren.
7. Diva Antics
This is your chance to experience her diva antics! Mariah usually sings during conversations, asks for water, and even asks to be retouched while on stage!
8. Hear Her Gospel Songs
Mariah has a lot of inspirational songs from her albums like "Make It Happen," "My Saving Grace," "Fly Like A Bird," "I Wish You Well," among others. There's always that one particular moment in a concert where we'll suddenly feel the emotions of such songs that will inspire us during the tough times and of course, the best times of our lives.
9. The "Mariah Moment" You Can Experience
What's the best way to enjoy this concert than to experience it with thousands of other Filipino Lambs! Just imagine the Mall of Asia Arena instantly turning into a massive choir singing along to Mariah's hits!
10. A Way Of Telling Her That The Filipinos Love Her Back
Mariah has shown the Philippines how she loves us by simply coming back here after 11 years. Now, this is your chance to show her that you love her back. Watching her concert is a way of supporting her and it will serve as a 'thank you' to her for the wonderful things she has brought to your life.
