Fifth Harmony in Manila
Fifth Harmony, the American pop girl group formed in the second season of the reality singing contest “X Factor US,” is set to hold its first Manila concert on April 5 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, according to local promoter MMI Live.
The coming one-night show is part of the group’s ongoing world tour, “7/27,” which was mounted in support of its second album of the same title. Tickets go on sale Jan. 24; call 470-2222.
With Camila Cabello quitting the group in December last year, Fifth Harmony is now left with only four members—Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui—all of whom vowed to soldier on.
And whatever worries the fans may have had about the band’s new configuration, the girls quickly erased with their recent performance at the 2017 People’s Choice Awards. If anything, the girls looked happier onstage, not a few netizens observed.
As if making a subtle statement about sticking together and not letting anything faze them, Ally, Normani, Dinah and Lauren belted out Camilla’s parts in unison in their biggest hit, “Work from Home”—“We ain’t worried ’bout nothin’ / We ain’t worried ’bout nada.” —ALLAN POLICARPIO
