Fans gathered at Robinsons Place Pangasinan on November 15th, 2019 for the special guest appearance of MNL48 Senbatsu members at the mall’s Christmas Tree Lighting celebration.

MNL48 Gabb, Yssa, Belle, Jamie, Cole, Sheki, Abby, and Sela performed their new and exciting fifth single “High Tension” and its coupling song “Green Flash.” And as the holiday season is fast approaching, the girls also brought in the Christmas cheer by giving the audience an exclusive live performance of “Paskong Kasama Ka,” a Filipino rendition of AKB48’s “Anata to Christmas Eve,” which the fans have loved.

“It feels great to perform one of the songs na pwedeng pwede talaga for this upcoming season which is Christmas, and mala-OPM rin kasi ang Paskong Kasama Ka, kaya feeling ko tatatak ito sa masa,” said fifth single center girl Gabb.

For MNL48 Yssa, performing the said Christmas song makes her a little emotional for being away from her family at the same time happy to able to celebrate the most important season in her life with new people that are also close to her heart: MNLoves and her fellow members who she considers as sisters.

She also mentioned that they are all looking forward to and hoping for a studio version release of the song which the fans have been asking for. “We want to share the meaningful message of the song and I am sure that many citizens of our beautiful country can relate their story with this song. Let's pray for this, MNLoves,” she expressed.

Meanwhile on the same day, the other half of Senbatsu members namely MNL48 Aly, Dian, Yzabel, Laney, Rans, Kay and Faith also rocked the stage with their performance of “First Rabbit” followed by their newest hit single “High Tension” during the first-ever concert of Pinoy Big Brother star Fumiya Sankai titled "Fumiya Amazing 'Di Ba?" at Music Museum in Greenhills, San Juan.

Asked how she feels before facing the concert crowd, MNL48 Dian felt honored to perform in one of Fumiya’s milestones as he starts his career post-PBB and delighted as the other half of the fifth single Senbatsu is performing in Pangasinan for the first time.

“Super happy at the same time very honored kami na mapabilang sa concert ni Fumiya-san. At first talaga nagulat kami kasi ‘Wow, kasama kami na magpeperform para sa concert ni Fumiya-san’ and medyo kabado pero excited kami na makita ‘yung ibang crowd at may kasama kaming iba pang mga malalaking names na artists. Nahati man kaming Senbatsu kasi ‘yung iba nasa Pangasinan, pero excited pa rin kami dahil dito,” Dian said.

See them on stage again this November 23 at Starmall Alabang for another mall show appearance; to get the latest updates, follow MNL48’s official social media pages and download their official app to be in the loop.
