Marion Aunor is having her first ever birthday concert “Take a Chance” on April 10, her 23rd birthday at Teatrino in Greenhills at 8:00 pm with guests Michael Pangilinan, Edgar Allan Guzman, Vin Abrenica, Edward Benosa, and younger sister, Ashley Aunor.
She might also launch her second album (still untitled). The 11-track album that comes with the bonus cut “Pumapag-ibig” (Jungee Marcelo’s Himig Handog 2014 entry which Marion interpreted with two other artists). Marion Aunor is singing her own compositions in the album, apart from those composed for her by Jonathan Manalo and Joven Tan (the composer behind Aiza Seguerra’s award-winning song “Anong Nangyari sa Ating Dalawa” and Michael Pangilinan’s “Pare, Mahal Mo Daw Ako”.
Marion feels that while privileged to have celebrity roots (she is the daughter of 70s’ actress/producer Lala Aunor and cousin of Nora Aunor), this does not give her an edge over other aspiring stars in the entertainment industry.
She also talked about working with The Voice Kids runner-up Darren Espanto, with whom she performed at his concert last year. Marion and Darren trained with veteran composer Vehnee Saturno.
Aunor, who is set to release her new album next month, is gearing up for her birthday concert on April 10 at Teatrino in San Juan.
