Basil gives vocals masterclass!

Basil Valdez has been singing for over 40 years. That is a really long time. Yet I am hard put to come up with names or the name of any young singer around who can equal, let alone surpass Basil’s tone, musicality and hitmaking capability. If you have somebody in mind then I would like very much to hear him sing, as he must be very special.

Basil’s singing continues to mesmerize. You always think you have had enough of him. Then you watch a show, likeSeasons of Love last week at The Newport Theater for the Performing Arts at Resorts World Manila, and you realize that he still sounds great and how much the audience loves his hit songs. And there are a lot of those enduring songs. Not only that, Basil has a new album out titled Basil S. Valdez. It is a big hit and the verdict is unanimous. As a singer, he is matchless.

Ryan Cayabyab, who composed and arranged many of Basil’s hit songs, among them Iduyan Mo, Nais Ko, Tuwing Umuulan At Kapiling Ka, Kahit Ika’y Panaginip Lang, must be thinking the same thing. In fact, he thinks so much of Basil as a singer that he has asked him to conduct a special class on singing. This is the Pop Vocal Performance Masterclass with Basil Valdez which will be held at The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab at Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas, Quezon City on Feb. 26, at 2 to 6 p.m.

Meanwhile, Basil is now going full blast into promoting his big-selling Basil S. Valdez CD. Fans can catch him in free shows at Eastwood City on Saturday, Feb. 25; at McKinley Heights on Friday, March 2; and at Trinoma in Quezon City on April 1. Catch him perform the songs from the album, Kanlungan, Ikaw Na Nga, Muntik Nang Maabot Ang Langit, Minsan Pa, Paano Na Kaya, Kung Ako Na Lang Sana, Hanggang, Ikaw, Sana’y Maghintay Ang Walang Hanggan and Pagdating Ng Panahon plus his greatest hits.
