PRESS RELEASE – Wency Calderon in concert

by Tony Surtida

March 23, 2011 – Edmonton, Alberta:  Our very own WENCY CALDERON takes center stage on April 30 at the Gateway Alliance Church auditorium.  Dubbed “I Believe”, the concert showcases Wency’s versatility as a performer singing a variety of styles and genres from contemporary to old standards, from R & B to pop, Latin and OPM.  She’ll dance and warm your hearts with her gracious style and vocal prowess.

This very young 15-year old artist is originally from Tondo, Manila.  She and her family relocated to Edmonton in 2009 where she thought she’d quietly endure her teen years in relative anonymity. Was she ever wrong!  Wency broke into the limelight in March 2010 when she took home the title Pinoy Singing Sensation – Junior Edition.  Since then her life has taken a dramatic transformation.  Almost overnight her celebrity went from obscurity to being one of the most recognizable faces in our community.

Wency travels to Manila in July to record an album with world-renowned composer and prolific hit maker VEHNEE SATURNO.  The whole process will stretch for about 1½ months, at the end of which her songs hit the airwaves. When asked how she felt about the project Wency replied “I’m very excited but I’m also scared. “I’ve never done anything like this before so I don’t know what to expect.  But I want to do this.  I know I can do this”.

“I Believe” aims to raise funds to finance Wency’s recording project.   Tickets are $15 each.  All proceeds directly benefit Wency’s bid to be the first-ever Edmonton based Filipino recording artist.  Let’s help Wency realize her dream.  Tickets are available at the following outlers:

Atin Tindahan (West-end), Mac Cafe & Juice Bar (West-end), Maple Sugar Shack (West Edmonton Mall). Sunfreight Cargo (Downtown),  Dina’s Variety Store (Millwoods)

Bet Bustos @ 780.710.6853 or Tony @ 780.710.4895
