Fans express love to MNL48 birthday celebrants during November Seitansai
Candles were blown and gifts came pouring in as fans made MNL48 members’ birthdays extra special and memorable this month during the November Seitansai celebration held last November 16, 2019 at Movie Stars Café.
MNL48 Jamie, Laney, Kay, Coleen, Andi, Gia and Kenkyuusei Karla whose birthdays were on November 12, 17, 10, 26, 8, 13 and 25 respectively gave their fans one blast of a show as they executed their enchanting Disney-themed performances.
Fifth Single Senbatsu headed by MNL48 Gabb and together with MNL48 Yssa, Belle, Jamie, Cole, Abby, Aly, Dian, Yzabel, Laney, Rans, Alice, Kay and Faith opened the event with the performance of their newest coupling song “Green Flash”, followed by an energizing sing-and-dance act of “Aitakatta – Gustong Makita” by the Seitansai celebrants.
MNL48 Kenkyuusei Karla and newly promoted MNL48 member Gia set the mood for their enchanting performances as they serenaded the audience with soulful songs while MNL48 Jamie was not able to hold back her tears as she thanked her fans, family and friends for their support after livening up the crowd with her anime-inspired performance. For an intermission, MNL48 Team NIV hyped up the stage with “1!2!3!4! Yoroshiku”.
Furthermore, MNL48 Laney and Andi went out of their comfort zones to jazz up the stage with their hip-hop flairs, as well as MNL48 Kay’s vibrant execution of Japanese songs to showcase her Japanese side. Last but not the least, MNL48 Coleen made a magical appearance with the singing of songs featured in several Disney animated films.
No Seitansai celebration is complete without the performance of their Fifth Single “High Tension” and blowing of candles. Asked about how she feels towards this month’s Seitansai, MNL48 Kay expressed her appreciation to their growing fan base and the fans’ unchanging love for them.
“Para sa’kin, this Seitansai is sobrang memorable sa’kin dahil eto ‘yung pang-second year ko bilang member and na-feel kong mas lumalaki ‘yung fanbase ng MNL48. Maraming nagsusupport sa’min at sobrang ramdam namin ‘yung love nila simula last year hanggang ngayon; patuloy pa rin ‘yung pag-support nila sa’min. Sobrang hindi namin mapapalitan ng thank you lang ‘yung support nila,” Kay said.
Talking about their Seitansai performances and the preparations they did, Kay remarked, “Sobrang naging successful naman ‘yung ginawa po namin dahil napakita namin kung ano ‘yung kaya naming ibigay sa mga fans maliban sa pagsasayaw ng MNL48 songs so sana nag-enjoy po sila do’n.”
MNL48 Alyssa, who performed alongside MNL48 Andi, shared their preparations for the said event, “Hectic ‘yung ginawa namin kasi ang daming events like Coslandia, mall shows, and other preparations sa Fifth Single. Kahit sobrang hectic, nag-exert kami ng double effort para ma-perfect ‘yung performance para sa mga fans. ‘Yung ibang dances last minute lang ginawa pero talagang ginalingan namin kasi para rin sa birthday celebrant na si Andi at sa ibang pang birthday celebrants kasi dapat special ito para sa kanila and also for the fans.”
