Megaworld Lifestyle Malls invites all music fans to witness an exciting Valentine musical event featuring another world-class Filipino talent, Marlisa Punzalan.
The Filipino-Australian singing sensation, who was hailed recently as the grand winner of X-Factor Australia last 2014, will be performing live for the first time in the country, in a series of shows that music fans can watch exclusively at Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.
The 15-year-old singing champion will be performing live on February 13, 2PM at Lucky Chinatown in Binondo, and later on the same day at 7PM at the Eastwood Mall Open Pak in Eastwood City. Marlisa returns to stage on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 7PM at the Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill.
Fans of Marlisa Punzalan can buy a copy of the singer’s self-titled debut album at the venue to get free admission to the shows. Those who will buy the record will also get a chance to meet the up and coming recording artist up-close and have their CDs signed during the album signing session happening after the show.
Born to Filipino parents from Bataan province who migrated to Australia, Marlisa, the youngest contestant to win the coveted singing competition, started singing at the age of three. Before her breakthrough run at the sixth edition of X-Factor Australia, she was a student at a Catholic school and a regular performer at charity events and singing competitions. Marlisa first performed in 2003 at the Australian Academy of Music and Performing Arts and had her first solo concert in 2011 and first TV appearance at the Norman Mitchell Comedy show in 2012.
In 2013, the then 14-year-old teen made her first audition for X-Factor Australia, where she wowed the judges including LMFAO’s Redfoo, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Dannii Minogue and Ronan Keating with her rendition of The Beatles classic, ‘Yesterday’.
With the help of her mentor, Ronan Keating, Marlisa went on to deliver some of the greatest performances in the competition’s sixth season, with three of her performances reaching the top 40 on the iTunes chart. Her stellar performances earned her a spot in the competition’s finale, where she bested fellow finalists Dean Ray and Brothers3.
“My X-Factor journey has been incredible because of the beautiful people around me,” said Marlisa about her win, while crediting her mentor and her supporters for her success.
Last November 2014, Sony Music Entertainment Australia announced the launch of Marlisa’s self-titled debut album. The 11-track record will feature re-recorded studio tracks of some of her most memorable performances in the show including ‘Nothing Else Matters’, ‘Titanium’, ‘Girl on Fire’ and her winning song ‘Stand by You’.
Other songs to look forward to in Marlisa’s debut album include renditions of ‘All by Myself’, ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’, ‘Let It Go’,’Try’, ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and ‘Impossible’.
