MANILA, Philippines - Aiza Seguerra has confirmed that she and her band will do front-act performances for international singer-composer John Mayer.

Mayer will hold a concert at the Mall of Asia Concert Ground on October 1.

“Actually, ‘yong first na dating pa lang niya dito dapat. Nakausap na din kami for that show, kaso na-cancel,” she shared, adding:

“I didn't want to say anything hangga't wala ako sa stage. Para siguradong, 'Uy, ako ‘yong front act ni John Mayer,’”

Now that everything has been finalized, Seguerra said they are already excited about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “Naglabas na din naman sila ng mga collateral, and siyempre, excited na din kami, ako at ang buong banda.”

Seguerra is a big Mayer fan. She disclosed that her favorite Mayer album is “Room for Squares,” which was released in 2001.

The CD contains the smash hits “Your Body is a Wonderland,” “No Such Thing,” and “A Love Song for No One.” “’Yong first album, very simple. Hindi pa siya naghe-heavy sa first album. Any [song] sa first album niya gusto ko."

Meanwhile, aside from preparing for the concert, the “Pagdating ng Panahon” singer will also begin her work as a producer of Carol Banawa’s comeback album.

“When we started corresponding through email, ang daming songs. Since napakaganda ng boses niya, ang dami niyang puwedeng kantahin,” she said.

The 27-year-old musician, who produced Juris's single "Di Lang Ikaw," shared that she and Banawa have been friends for a long time.

“Bata pa lang kami ni Carol, nagkakasama na kami. Matagal na 'yon, bata pa si Carol noon, tsaka ako. Kaya ever since naman, ‘yong paths namin nagko-cross,” she said.
