9AM. Just got up for the PACQUIAO-COTTO fight. The entire family stayed past midnight at the NINOY AQUINO STADIUM to cheer for CRAIG JOHN NENIEL, a family member who is the DRUMMER of the rock band EEVEE who bested 13 other national finalists as they rocked the stage with 14 famous local rock bands.
EEVEE made it as the LONE REPRESENTATIVE OF DAVAO and one of the three for the entire MINDANAO landing as the SOLE GRAND WINNER of NESCAFE 3in1 SOUNDSKOOL 2009! Simplicity, clarity, relevance of its music plus great talent made them winners! We’re so proud indeed! Para sa Davao! Astig!
Last night, I found myself suddenly back in my good old rock and roll days as I watched the performances of various rock bands both finalists and mentors. Pinoys got talent indeed!. Rock and roll will always be rock and roll!
Well, the EEVEE only got a few audience cheering last night because most finalists came from LUZON and VISAYAS bringing with them lots of supporters. Nonetheless, 5 heads plus Nico and a few others clapping and shouting for the EEVEE added a good recipe for SUCCESS! Congrats!
