Feb 8, 2013. John Ford Coley and David Pomeranz had a joint concert at limketkai atrium, Cagayan De Oro City. It was a night full of love songs from the 80′s and 90′s. They performed singly because they are two different singers. I mean they have different styles and songs. We grow up hearing David’s wedding songs like king and queen of hearts, born for you, on this day, got to believe in magic, and among others.
Both guy would joke about their age, but the wrinkles only brought wisdom and passion on their singing career. It is visible on their performance how they love to entertain their fans through singing and sharing stories in the middle. They both express love for the Philippines that’s why they would come back to the country frequently. While David would sing love songs, John Ford on the other hand would encourage tapping our feet and clapping our hands as we sang together with his not so heartbreaking songs like It’s Sad To Belong, We’ll Never Have To Say Goodbye Again, What Can I Do With This Broken Heart, In It For Love, Love Is The Answer, What’s Forever For and more. I do love John Ford Coley’s style of music because of the fast and slow beat. Is it called slow rock? I can’t identify the genre. I can always follow the songs though I’m not familiar with lyrics. I find it relaxing to listen in the evening.
John Ford Coley singing to us ‘I’d Really Love To See You Tonight’. With the lights choreography, you can’t help but be amazed.
And behold! The two singers made a duet singing one of my fave bands – The Beatles’ ‘Twist and Shout. Everybody went wild.
The whole concert experience was magical and I shall say I was immersed to different forms of love but it all come to one truth that love happens to every person no matter where we are coming from.
