Yuki wrote a great review of the Manila concert on her blog. You can read it here. Thank you, Yuki! :) And she found out that Matthew Madine is 9 years old and will be 10 next month! So another birthday to add to the list! :)
Our friend, Hannah, also wrote a great concert review that you can read here.
Then there is another excellent concert review with tons of pictures on the Liberians Philippines blog here. Thank you all for such detailed reviews and great pictures! :)
There is a review by the Philippine Daily Enquirer that you can read here. The writer sounds like a real fan. She writes, "We never want to hear 'White Christmas' sung any other way. And 'Himig ng Pasko,' Libera-style, will henceforth be our measure of cool for the affectingly familiar line, 'Malamig ang simoy ng hangin.' She noticed that the soloists from 2 years ago are now singing in the lower registers. She also liked the video screens at each side of the stage.
"While 'Joy to the World' and 'Carol of the Bells' were the most heartily applauded, our big favorite was 'The Fountain.'...The most exquisite, though, given the orientation of the group, were the adoration songs 'Glory to Thee' and 'How Shall I Sing That Melody.'" I'm sure she means "Majesty." :) She finishes by saying, "We love these boys, we do." :D
And there is yet another concert review by ABS CBN News here. The writer got goosebumps hearing Libera sing "Himig ng Pasko."
