Sharon Cuneta suddenly felt ill right after the finale of her birthday concert at the Araneta Coliseum last night, January 11. Backstage, the ABS-CBN reporters were ready to congratulate her for having staged a successful event. But the Megastar wasn’t able to give an interview since she seemed to be suffering from over-fatigue. She went straight to her dressing room and was quickly assisted by the paramedics. Many couldn’t help but feel worried, however, when she had to use a wheelchair as she was escorted out of Araneta together with husband Kiko Pangilinan and other companions.
The audience witnessed how Sharon accidentally slipped earlier during her rock and roll production number with Billy Crawford and RJ Jacinto. But afterwards she even joked about her fall and was still able to finish the concert without any other glitch. Whether or not it has a contributing factor to Sharon’s sudden illness is still unclear though. The Megastar, however, had been sick last week and might have not completely recovered yet.
In the meantime, it was certainly a night to remember for Sharon’s fans with all the spectacular production numbers. First off, the Megastar sang a medley with Star Power’s five finalists Akiko Solon, Monica Sacay, Angeline Quinto, K-La Rivera, and Krissel Valdez. KC Concepcion and Sam Milby wowed the audience next with their amazing acrobatic dance moves. Ai-Ai de las Alas’s surprise sexy dance number was also one of the highlights of the show.
A romantic rendition of Sharon’s movie themes were also showcased by the three kilig love teams of Piolo Pascual and KC; Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga; and Jericho Rosales and Karylle. They sang “Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin,” “Pagdating Ng Panahon,” and “Kahit Wala Ka Na,” respectively. But perhaps most special of all was Sharon’s duet with the Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo during the latter part of the show.
