Flashback Saturday at SMX-Lanang

Nelson C. Bagaforo

IT'S final. The once-in-a-lifetime concert of three of the most sought-after performers in the 70's and 90's will push through in Davao City after it was postponed from its original schedule on April 28.

Re-titled as Flashback Saturday, the concert, featuring El Debarge, Sybil and Kalapana, will rock the SMX Convention Center at SM Lanang Premier on July 1, 2017. Show starts at 8 p.m.

The Davao concert, produced by Ovation Productions, is originally entitled Flashback Friday, but was renamed Flashback Saturday, after it was delayed due to non-availability of one of the performers, who was not mentioned by the organizers.

"The original date of April 28 conflicted with another confirmed performance by one of the three featured artists.

Although the oversight was not Ovation's, we nevertheless apologize for whatever confusion this may have caused," Ovation said in its official statement.

Ticket prices are as follow: VIP P3,500,(with seat assignment); Gold P2,500 (with seat assignment); Silver P1,500 (free seating); Bronze P850 (free seating).

Tickets are sold at the Customer Service Counter of The SM Store of SM Lanang Premier and SM City Davao.. For Ticket Info: 0977-7641707 or 0922-4382373

Exclusive contract

Without doubt, Jessica Soho is the country's most-awarded broadcast journalist. But what endeared her most to her followers that made her even more respectful is her loyalty to the network she started with.

She's one of the few broadcast journalists who embodies this character.
In her 30 years in broadcast journalism, Jessica has continued to receive citations left and right for her works, but remained on her foot. She's not a GMA News pillar for nothing.

Jessica recently renewed her exclusive contract with GMA Network. Present during the signing were GMA chair and chief executive officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon; president and chief operating officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr.; and executive vice president and chief financial officer Felipe S. Yalong.

"Parang ang GMA at ako, may forever. Kasi ever since naman, mula magsimula ako hanggang ngayon, ito lang ang tahanan ko," Jessica said at the signing.

"Like GMA, (Jessica) is also the most trusted, hindi lamang as host kundi reporter at lahat na," Gozon, for his part, said.

Jessica hosts the top-rating and award-winning news magazine program Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS) on GMA. She also anchors GMA News TV's flagship evening newscast State of the Nation with Jessica Soho (Sona) and is the host of the investigative news magazine program Brigada.

The first Filipina to win the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award for Investigative Journalism in 1999, Soho continues to receive recognitions from various award-winning bodies here and abroad. Just recently, Soho was named as the “Most Trusted News Presenter” for the seventh consecutive year by Reader’s Digest Asia.
