It seemed like we were in a dream — a fairy tale to be exact. Crystal chandeliers hanging high above the ceiling, the table setting fit for a castle, the walls painted a vintage deep brown. One by one, four gorgeous Queens entered the hall...
We were transported to a magical place during the grand press conference for the once-in-a-lifetime concert DIVAS: Live in Manila featuring Queen of R&B Kyla, Queen of Themesongs Angeline Quinto, Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan, and Pop Rock Superstar Yeng Constantino on November 11 at the Araneta Coliseum.
The spectacular show is still a go even after Rachelle Ann Go dropped out due to conflicting schedules with her international gigs. "Big break din for her career 'yun and we know na gustung-gusto niya yung passion na 'yun, so okay lang naman po talaga na magparaya," explained her dear friend Yeng.
Angeline even joked about the situation, saying "Yung dapat na [talent fee] n'ya, sa'min napunta" and followed it up with a sweet "thank you" to Rachelle. It was evident that the ladies supported and understood the West End Diva's decision.

The divas all contributed to the show's repertoire, revealing how it's a mix of both old and new songs. KZ hinted on their songs of choice being "mga kanta na kinakanta na dati na gagawan namin ng areglo ngayon" and "kanta ngayon na gagawan namin ng sariling interpretation sa bawat genre namin."
By the end of the event, the Divas mingled with the press. Yeng smiled at every camera pointed her way, Angeline hugged fans with open arms, Kyla talked excitedly about their upcoming concert, and KZ shared selfies with the media. With these simple gestures, the ladies debunked the negative connotation of the word "diva" and proved they were down to earth despite being Queens in the music scene.
