NEW JERSEY (March 31) – Sharon Cuneta, the Philippines’ showbiz megastar, is slated to perform on May 31, 2009 at 3 P.M. at the NJPAC Prudential Hall in Newark, New Jersey for her MEGATHIRTY CONCERT TOUR 2009.
Produced by MPG Global Productions, the same company that brought the fabulously sensational Divas 4 Divas Concert in Atlantic City recently, the upcoming show also features Sharon’s equally popular daughter, KC Concepcion. KC has carved a distinguished niche for herself in the same arena where she was conceived and brought up.
From a mere giggly teenybopper with a potential voice, sweet face and a promising showbiz career, Sharon Cuneta gracefully metamorphosed into a celebrity figure. She has constantly attained such unparalleled stature that established her as an accomplished performer with innate distinction.
Aptly known as the Megastar of the local celluloid, Sharon Cuneta’s sensational stardom wasn’t obtained overnight but through series transformations and numerous well-earned accomplishments. Since the release of her first album “DJ’s Pet,” (when she was barely 12), to her first TV show C.U.T.E. (Call Us Two For Entertainment) with her aunt Helen Gamboa over IBC Channel 13, to her movie debut “Dear Heart” until her latest “Caregiver” film project, Sharon has evidently proven her diverse aesthetic talent which was easily recognized and readily accepted. It earned her an unprecedented league of fans and followers the world over. As the intense chanteuse and effective actress that she is, Sharon was inevitably catapulted to a level distinctly her very own.
Thirty years in the limelight could be a long stint but Sharon is unsinkable and has undoubtedly remained one of the most in-demand talents today. After years of diligently honing her craft and perfecting her capabilities not only on the silver screen, boob tube and recording but also on the concert stage, she reaped awards, accolades and recognition in all areas. As if those weren’t enough to prove her supremacy in the entertainment arena, she even accumulated a string of many product endorsements and incredible concert bookings and guest performances locally and across the globe. In all, her overseas stints took even longer than what she spent in her home base, Manila.
The showbiz firmament is bountifully embellished with countless stars but Sharon’s luster is way far different from all the rest and her numerous achievements are undeniably beyond compare. In the span of three decades, Sharon has received 15 Best Actress Awards from different prestigious award-giving bodies — all for just seven films. She has garnered more than 20 music awards, recorded over 40 hit albums, acted in about 58 films, received seven recognitions for TV hosting and a holder of Box Office Queen Award for several years. All these years, Sharon has persistently maintained the expediency of her fame and fortune that she has accumulated munificently.
The MEGATHIRTY TOUR 2009 Concert promises to be another top entertainment, which MPG Global Productions chose to offer for this year’s special East Coast pre-summer treat.
