You don’t say his name you sing it!! “Jason Deruloooooooo,” the Hit Man Of Music wowed the crowd on July 23, 2010 at the Glorietta Activity Center. The R and B breakthrough artist of 2009 set Ayala shoppers on fire with his awesome break dancing moves, bewildering somersaults and epic vocals. Jason sang songs from his self-titled debut album amidst a smoke-infused stage and four back-up dancers, starting with the uppity ditty “Sky’s The Limit”. Jason then launched into his third single “Riding Solo” as the audience sang along to the catchy lyrics. The R and B sensation shared that he wrote “Riding Solo” because he wanted to express how great it was to be single, being a contrast to the other songs playing on the radio about falling in love.
A surprise number was Jason’s equally riveting rendition of Justin Timberlake “Sexyback” proving the R and B singer’s versatility in doing covers as well as original songs. Another highlight of the concert was when Jason asked a girl from the audience up on stage and serenaded the emotional ditty “What If” to her. “Mahal kita” and “Salamat po,” he enthused to a very appreciative audience after his performance. From a somber ambiance the crowd went wild when Jason brazenly ripped off his black sando top off at the end of his hit single “Watcha Say” and subsequently threw it to the audience with anxious females fighting over for a piece. Just before his finale song Jason thanked all his fans and supporters for making 2009 a great year for him and how they helped make his dreams come true. As expected the last song was Jason’s infectious hit, “In My Head” prompting the audience who were already at the front of the stage and dancing wildly about, to ask for more.
After the last song lucky Ayala shoppers had a once in a lifetime chance to meet their idol and have a picture taken or a CD signed with him. In between sessions the friendly R and B sensation waved to his fans that were cheering and shouting his name. Haven’t caught the Derulo fever yet?
