So today I covered a highly requested song, Drake's "One Dance" and yes this was inspired by the amazingly talented Alex Aiono! <3 Please do share my video if you liked it and subscribe to my channel too for more! <3
As of the moment I am still feelin the PCD. I bet everyone of the 26,000 music fans that took part of MTV Music Evolution Manila are feeling the same way as I am! Words cannot describe how amazing MTV brought all of these world class acts together to perform on one stage here in Manila at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds last Friday, June 24. If you guys remember, last September 2015 I was flown in all the way from Manila to Malaysia to witness the MTV World Stage Malaysia (you can read all about that here), it was definitely a dream come true for MTV to recreate that here in the Philippines! The one-night only outdoor live music event hit an all-time temperature high with a stellar line-up of international and local acts who ignited the stage in celebration of iconic and contemporary pop music with a dance influence.

Also got to ask OneRepublic & Bebe Rexha some questions at the presscon, you can replay the LIVE video I shot of my q&a session with Bebe here: LIVE Q&A with Bebe Rexha, although my interview with OneRepublic got cut but you can check out their answer to my question - "How does it feel to be back in Manila and what are your expectations from tonight's show?" This was LIVE streamed by Manila Bulletin which is at the very start of the video in this link: https://www.facebook.com/manilabulletin/videos/10154495371432985/ I fangirled right after because right before Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic answered my question, he asked for my name again and asked how it felt to have a blog named iheartlesha.com haha! that was GOLD! Sucks it wasn't caught on cam though! And Bebe Rexha also complimented my hair HUHU I love her so much, I've been such a fan ever since Hey Mama, Me, Myself, and I, & now my new fave No Broken Hearts <3 Gosh she inspires me with her amazing voice and songwriting skills!
It was also awesome seeing VJ Alan and VJ Hanli again! Missed them lots!
After the presscon, it was finally time to head to the concert grounds with the whole squad and witness #MTVMUSICEVO!
Even the rain could not dampen and bring down the fever as fans moved to the pop dance beats with explosive performances by iconic international pop band and prolific hit-maker OneRepublic, L.A.-grown electric dance trio Far East Movement, Billboard Hot 100 artist, American singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha, Korea’s favorite K-pop idol female group, Apink, Philippine pop superstar father and son-tandem Gary V feat. Gab Valenciano and Filipino pop darlings James Reid and Nadine Lustre, MTV VJs Alan Wong, Hanli Hoefer, Yassi Pressman and Andre Paras hosted the event.
Far East Movement brought the house down by playing a remixed version of the infamous Like A G6 and Rocketeer! They were totally ILL <3
And for the finale of course, OneRepublic killed their set! Everybody sang their hearts out to all of their songs and damnnnnn I got goosebumps hearing Ryan Tedder's voice for the first time LIVE! He sounded absolutely divine and the notes he reached were on point all throughout! <3
