I got accepted as in intern for the PR team handling Yahoo! Celebrity Awards 2014 held in MOA Arena along with my other OCM friends.
The stage design was amazing. I was assigned to man the area for media attendees (right behind the mosh pit). It was a good place to be in because I wasn’t so far away from the actual stage. Of course, the whole theme of the event was purple.
I didn’t bring my SLR and I can never depend on my phone camera’s quality to take nice pictures especially at night (shutter delay problems + fast moving images = blurred pictures). Anyway, I was too busy enjoying the event and watching my favorite celebrities perform to take pictures.
It’s quite a dream come true of mine when Elmo Magalona performed! Ahhh, being part of a PR team’s downside is that I can’t act all fan girly because I have to look professional. It sucks having to hold in all the screams! I’ve been a fan eversince I saw him on Kjwan’s One Look music video.
He performed Qrush on You along side Jay-R and Q-York. I really thought it would last forever! How I wish I have photos or even a video to share. He was wonderful just how I thought he would be!
Other stars that were present are Vice Ganda, Kim Chiu, JC De Vera, Vhong Navarro, Karylle Tatlonghari, Spongecola, Parokya ni Edgar, Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo, Xian Lim, Gladys Reyes, Jolina Magdangal, Papa Jack, and others (these are the only names I can think of right now).
The event ended at 11 p.m. with a stellar performance by Sarah and Bamboo (they won Female/Male Performer of the Year). Hurray for the purple confetti!
It was tiring (ended a little after 11 p.m.) but it was so worth it! Thank you so much Yahoo! and Perceptions Inc. for this opportunity!
