Rex Smith Live in Manila Concert 2012
Are you ready for a musical treat this Valentine’s Day? Join Rex Smith Live in Manila Concert this February 14, 2012. Most of the teens nowadays may ask the question, Who is Rex Smith? For those who have not lived during the times of soft rock and the seventies-eighties, then here’s your chance to find out. Rex Smith is a singer based in the United States and has been performing since 1975. For die-hard Rex Smiths fans, they already know that even before he entered the exciting world of music and entertainment, he was actually a heartthrob. In fact, during the late seventies, he was known as a teen icon that all the ladies adored. He was part of the musical broadway show Grease as lead character Danny Zuko, in 1978. Then, from a television career, he switched to something related to music and songwriting. In 1976, together with his band then known as “REX” and also then mainly of hard rock, Rex was starting to create songs that would make everybody fall in love. He began with individual singles such as “You Take My Breath Away” that actually made it to the top 10 of the Billboard Top 100. Just when you thought it was enough for one musician to be able to be part of the top 10, Rex Smith would shoot the ball once again as another song (a remake) of “Everlasting Love” made it into the top 40. His talent was being recognized in other places as well such as the hosting world as he even hosted the 1983 Miss Universe beauty pageant in Peru. To date, Rex Smith has created a whopping eleven albums (the latest came out in the year 2000) and is ready to come back to Manila, Philippines with his Valentine Concert. On February 14, 2012, 8:30 PM, at the Midas Hotel at 2702 Roxas Boulevard, Rex Smith will come back to all of us as he brings songs such as “Could It Be Magic”, “Simply Jessie”, “You Take My Breath Away”, “Foolish Heart” and many many more.

There are some artists who pass by our musical ears and leave just before we start getting inspired and motivated. There are those who comes to us with songs that are powerful to move and connect but also end up being forgotten and never heard of after years. Of course, these songs and the musicians themselves end up having different lives; some settle down and get married, some take on a different career path, and some simply just want to rest and take a vacation from the music industry. Whether or not they do, it is always delightful news to hear that they’re coming back or visiting our ears and hearts one more time. For musicians like Rex Smith, it’s definitely something worth looking forward to.
