Even if One Republic came over a month ago, there’s no way I could ignore mentioning Ryan Tedder’s outstanding voice. This group has captured the world with all of their amazing songs. Each and every one of them are so talented! The first song I heard from them was If I lose myself, making me feel so lively even when bored to death. But I really started getting to know them more when my friend Kyla gave me a list of their songs to listen to. As soon as the tickets were bought, I started familiarizing myself to the songs in their setlist eventually knowing the words off by heart.

The concert was on a school night in the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Luckily, we didn’t have much homework that week! I went with my friends Ysabela and Bettina. We saw some friends there too! It was my first time going to a concert without my family coming, and my mom was right, it’s more fun to go to concerts with your friends! Let me just say, we were probably jumping up and down the whole time, especially when Counting Stars started playing.
The lighting was great, the audience was lively and music was fantastic! I remember Ryan saying that us Filipino’s sounded like a choir when singing along. Yay for us! I even remember The Fox playing as we left the arena. Some other songs played were: Secrets, All the Right Moves, What you Wanted, Stop and Stare, Apologize, Burning Bridges, Preacher, Something I need, I lived and If I lose myself as their finale. There were a few more but I can’t remember, sorry about that!
I can’t really say much, It’s something you really have to experience to know what it feels like. If you know the all the songs in a concert, I guarantee you’ll have crazy fun. I may have missed Zedd and Alicia Keys but I don’t mind at all! I was so happy I brought my big lens with me, and I know I’ll bring it the next time we go to a concert. Hopefully I’ll get to go to Bruno Mars, and believe it or not my dad actually wants to go with me. ‘Til next time! I seriously need to get more outfit posts out there. Happy Christmas break everyone! And good luck to those who have tests next week :).
