Kapuso stars amp up this year’s Sinulog, Dinagyang festivals

Kapusong Cebuanos and Ilonggos experienced spectacular celebrations of this year's Sinulog and Dinagyang Festivals when GMA Network, through its regional arm GMA Regional TV, brought some of today's hottest artists for a series of shows last January.
In Cebu, Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid led the biggest names in the entertainment industry that joined the colorful annual Sinulog Festival.
Meanwhile, GMA's Premier Drama Actress Lovi Poe and Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo headlined the Kapuso Mall Show and Kapuso Fiesta last January 19 at the Gaisano Island Mall Mactan and The Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu, respectively. The two actors star in the romcom series The One That Got Away.
Joining Lovi and Dennis were the lead stars of Kambal, Karibal Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali. Present as well during the Kapuso Mall Show was Sherlock Jr.'s Ruru Madrid with his co-star Matt Evans.
On January 20, Cebuanos filled the Waterfront Hotel and Casino to watch the launch of “3 Stars, 1 Heart” featuring the powerhouse trio of Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Asia's Balladeer Christian Bautista and Asia's Pop Sweetheart Julie Anne San Jose. The ground-breaking concert series is a collaboration of GMA RTV with GMA Entertainment Content Group (ECG).
This year's Sinulog Grand Parade was made special with the participation of the rest of the stars of The One That Got Away. Multi-talented actress/TV host Rhian Ramos and versatile leading lady Max Collins together with Ivan Dorschner, Migo Adecer and Jason Abalos boarded the Kapuso Float last January 21.
GMA Cebu also aired a live coverage of the Sinulog Grand Parade that day. The "Pit Senyor: The Balitang Bisdak Special Live Coverage" was hosted by "Balitang Bisdak" anchors Alan Domingo and Cecile Quibod-Castro, together with Balitang Bisdak's roster of correspondents Chona Carreon, Lou Ann Mae Rondina and Nikko Sereno.
The following week, the Kapuso Network delighted its loyal viewers in Iloilo when it celebrated the Dinagyang Festival with various events from January 26 to 28. Ruru bannered the Kapuso Fiesta in Robinsons Place Iloilo last January 26 with his Sherlock Jr. co-stars Janine Gutierrez and Andre Paras.
The next day (January 27), Ilonggos who flocked to the Festive Walk Megaworld experienced an early Valentine treat when Kambal, Karibal's Miguel and Bianca treated them to a Kapuso Mall Show.
Taste Buddies and All-Star Videoke host Solenn Heussaff threw a party for the crowd gathered during her Kapuso Meet and Greet in SM City Iloilo.
Capping off the Kapuso Dinagyang activities this year was the Kapuso Mall Show courtesy of the stars of the upcoming Afternoon Prime program Contessa. Multi-talented actress Glaiza de Castro, who is set to play Contessa in the series, was warmly received by the throng of Ilonggos who gathered in SM City Iloilo last January 28. Joining Glaiza were her co-stars Lauren Young and Jak Roberto.
