Team MII kicks off MNL48 three-part team concert series
As MNL48 continues to blossom with successful projects this year, the Philippine idol group is yet again set to mark another milestone in their career as they carry on giving their beloved fans new and special moments to remember. Their first ever team concert titled “No to Oshihen” was recently held last 6th of October 2019 at Movie Stars Café, with Team MII opening the said concert series.
Team MII – Sheki, Jamie, Alice, Rans, Faith, Jan, Emz, Yzabel, Dana, Laney, Klaire, Cole, Shaira, Andi, and Princess – killed the stage with their groundbreaking performances and showcased their talents and uniqueness as a team that made the fans shout in excitement and cry with pride.
The team sang Bohemian Rhapsody in a cappella, which was an achievement for them for singing it very well, considering that they only had two voice trainings for that song. They also performed You Can't Stop the Beat and Last Dance, with Alice and Sheki as the leads, both of them glad when their coaches and fellow members were pleased with their performance.
The crowd went wild when exceptional song-and-dance numbers from the team happened right before their eyes. Fans never fail to show their support as they sang along with the team when they performed their chart-topping singles and coupling songs.
As they promised to give the fans something brand new in this team concert, Sheki, Alice, Rans, also known as the ‘Tatlog’, serenaded the crowd with their a cappella version of Talulot ng Sakura in which fans were totally filled with awe and admiration.
MNL48 Team MII Captain Alice expressed that she was super relieved after the event. “Ang dami po ng pinagdaanan namin, pero nandito pa kami ngayon, natapos po namin ng masaya kasi nagtulungan po talaga lahat.” She also added “Iba po yung feeling. Ang nasa utak po namin may bago po silang makikita samin,” when asked how the team concert is different from other shows they've had before.
For them, adaptability is one unique quality that the team has and is proud of. “Mabilis pumick-up ang Team MII,” Sheki said. Rans said the team's motto is ‘Fall seven times, stand up eight.’ in which Alice agrees by saying, “Ganyan po kami, kahit ilang beses po kaming daanan ng bagyo o sunog.” For Sheki, her overall experience with the team concert was very unique; she experienced mixed emotions in every performance.
The Tatlog (Sheki, Alice, Rans) shared that they would want more team concerts in the future, and that this concert served as a stepping stone for them once their theatre opens. “I'm sure ready na kami,” Sheki expressed. The trio also mentioned that fans can expect more from them in their upcoming performances as a team. As team captain Alice describes Team MII, “Ang daming talent na kayang i-offer. Like band, musically-inclined ang mga girls. Ang daming magagaling sumayaw, magagaling kumanta. Variety. All in one.”
A supportive fan of MNL48, Kojim, remarked that the concert was awesome. “The girls gave their all, their efforts and everything, and it shows - it pays off talaga. Nakikita mo yung mga naging growth nila sa concert na 'to tsaka yung mga performances nila talagang nag-level up.” She stated that she had fun and would want more of team concerts like this in the future. “Dito sila mag-go-grow, dito nila magagawa yung mga bagay na gusto nilang gawin tsaka ma-so-showcase nila yung mga talent nila.”
“Masaya po, first time ko lang pumunta ng event actually. Super nice, ang ganda nila, and na-enjoy ko po,” another fan commented.
