Ultimate star Jennylyn Mercado and award-winning versatile actor Dennis Trillo look back in the ups and downs of their relationship and reminisce their love story through music in their upcoming concert titled “CoLove Live” this February 15 (Saturday), 7PM at the New Frontier Theater.
The real life couple, who are very private with their personal lives, will open up for the first time and will celebrate their love in this rare musical treat to be directed by John Prats together with musical director Adonis Tabanda.
“Ever since, Dennis and I share a common love for music. This is one of the things that we are really passionate about so this coming love month, we want to take the audience with us and make them feel the joy and the pain of falling in love through songs that Dennis and I personally picked,” said Jennylyn.
“We want the whole experience to be real and sincere and that’s why we did our best to keep the authenticity of our journey here. We are really blessed that we are working with direk because he was able to translate that beautifully in this show. We are really excited for people to see what we are working on,” added Dennis.
“CoLove” is one of the shows in Jennylyn’s YouTube channel where she and Dennis jam to 80s and 90s hits alongside guest musicians and artists in a makeshift studio inside the ultimate star’s home. This passion project suddenly became a big hit online as fans continuously clamor for more covers from the Kapuso couple. To date, the channel has earned more than 15 million views.
“We didn’t expect that it will be well received by netizens. All we wanted to do was to bring back these beautiful songs from the 80s and 90s and show everyone the music that we grew up to,” shared Jennylyn.
A joke from her YouTube channel manager Jan Enriquez then paved the way for “CoLove LIVE” after the couple welcomed the idea of taking CoLove to a bigger stage.
“When Jan said that in the future, we can bring CoLove to the concert stage, Dennis and I were like ‘why not?’ So I immediately called my manager Tita Becky and Katrina Aguila about it and the next thing we knew, we already have a venue, we are sitting down with the whole team, brainstorming, and so on.”
Aside from Kapamilya actor-turned-concert director John, Dennis and Jennylyn’s friends in the industry will also take part as guest performers in “CoLove LIVE.” This include Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards, Carlo Aquino, Alex Gonzaga, Janno Gibbs, Nyoy Volante, Kim Molina, Jerald Napoles, Nar Cabico, Nico Antonio and Juan Miguel Severo.
The two also personally invited OPM icon Jay Durias and one of the hottest rock bands today, Juan Karlos to perform.
“CoLove LIVE” is produced by Jennylyn and Dennis in partnership with Becky Aguila Artists Management, Quantum Films, GMA, Real Green, and Merry Sun.
