A Valentine’s date in Sugbo with Ice

In this post-Valentine concert, Ice Seguerra will be serenading Cebuanos with songs that chronicle his journey as an artist.

Ice Seguerra is in the spotlight after his viral rendition of the popular Cebuano love song “Usahay,” which has now garnered 4 million views and over hundred thousand reactions as of early this week on Facebook.

With many fans from the Visayas commenting on the post to express support, Seguerra has nothing but growing anticipation to perform for the Cebuano crowd.

“I am so excited to bring 'Becoming Ice' to Cebu. Sa totoo lang, I love performing for the Cebuanos. Yes, medyo nakakakaba kasi in my many years of performing there, makikita mo na they really know what they want out of a performance. They really listen, kaya pag nagkamali, lagot. Pero kapag na-appreciate nila 'yung music and performance, sobrang all out din sila para ipakita 'yung enjoyment nila,” he said.

For 'Becoming Ice,” the versatile performer will be sharing the stage with up-and-coming VisPop idols from Cebu's vibrant music scene, including the crowd favorite, Oh! Caraga band and Jerika Teodorico of “Labyu, 'Langga” fame.

Oh! Caraga was chosen as one of the finalists in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) in 2020, getting selected from more than 26,000 entries from 158 countries. The group is composed of Kenneth Corvera, Adam Corvera, and Sherwin Fugoso. On the other hand, Teodorico has established herself as a singer-songwriter and a household name in Cebu's music scene after winning the top prize in Vispop 2.0 in 2013.

In addition to Cebu's homegrown talents, “Becoming Ice” will also be flying in special guests to make the post-Valentine event extra special, including Concert King Martin Nievera, Bayang Barrios, Mike Villegas, Cooky Chua, and Frenchie Dy. There will also be special participation from Sylvia Sanchez and Bossing Vic Sotto.

An intimate affair

In this post-Valentine concert, Seguerra will be serenading Cebuanos with songs that chronicle his journey as an artist — the soundtrack of his life from the child actor doing duck walks, to his “Okay ka Fairy Ko” and “Shake Rattle and Roll” days, to his emergence as a singer-songwriter with more mature sensibilities and depth.

Fans can expect his groundbreaking hits, including “Pagdating ng Panahon” and “Anong Nangyari sa Ating Dalawa” and many more. Touted as an intimate sneak peek into his life through his songs, “Becoming Ice” aims to share the artist's story with the Cebuanos who have welcomed and supported him through the years.

With a career that spans three and a half decades, Seguerra's longevity in the business may lie in his songs that ring with genuineness and vulnerability that perhaps can be credited from not just his growth as an artist but also from his personal journey of becoming, his lived experience of life's highs and lows, and in learning to dream and love again. His voice, with its signature quiet poignance and power (so much like love), makes those who listen truly feel his music and relate to the stories they convey in not so many words (or high notes).

Experience “Becoming Ice,” the milestone concert celebrating multi-platinum artist Ice Seguerra's 35 years in show business at the Pacific Grand Ballroom, Waterfront Cebu Hotel and Casino in Cebu City on February 18.
