THE multi-acclaimed show “I Am Me: Jessa Zaragoza” is coming to Los Angeles, California in August.
This was announced last Wednesday by Ms. Zaragoza, her husband Dingdong Avanzado and daughter Jayda Avanzado during a press conference at the Leelin Bakery and Café at the Eagle Rock Plaza, Los Angeles.
Zaragoza, an enduring singer and actress, said she was excited to do the acclaimed show in Los Angeles because it will coincide with her 20th year in the music industry.
The concert will feature Zaragoza’s “very wide musical catalogue spanning over two decades that significantly influenced a generation of Filipinos” around the world.
“I Am Me: Jessa Zaragoza” got rave reviews after it was shown in Manila and Oahu, Hawaii. It earned nominations to the 29th Aliw Awards, a body that seeks to recognize achievements in live entertainment.
Zaragoza was nominated in the Best Female Performance in a Concert category while her daughter Jayda was nominated for the Best New Female Artist category. Husband Dingdong, on the other hand, was nominated for the Best Concert Stage Direction category.
In 2014, Zaragoza was chosen as an interpreter in ABS-CBN’s Himig Handog songwriting contest and won the Star Music Listener’s Choice award for the SJ Gandia’s song “Bumabalik ang Nagdaan.”
Zaragoza currently stars in GMA network’s top-rating sitcom Pepito Manaloto.
On August 12, “I Am Me: Jessa Zaragoza” will hit the Aratani Theatre at 244 San Pedro St. in downtown Los Angeles.
Jayda and her father Dingdong would be guest performers in the show.
