Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — It was a night flowing with good music and good booze, as actor-slash-singer Matteo Guidicelli launched his first single under Viva Records at The Music Hall in Metrowalk, Pasig. The song is a cover of Imago’s classic “Sundo.”
Prior to the launch, Matteo shared that he chose to cover “Sundo” because of his love for OPM rock. “I love '90s rock, I love OPM rock, and this is one of the songs I grew up listening to. It's a perfect song,” says Matteo.
He also shared that the song “matches what he feels today,” as he has recently entered the military and will be far away from his family. “I'm gonna be gone ... for the military, and I dedicate this song to my loved ones.”
Audiences at the event were treated to an exclusive preview of the music video for “Sundo.” Matteo also performed songs off of his first album, as well as several covers, for friends, family, and dedicated fans. He even performed a mellowed-down version of Sarah Geronimo’s “Kilometro,” much to the enjoyment of the crowd.
As Primera Light Brandy’s newest brand ambassador, Matteo also performed the jingle “Shot” alongside alternative rock band Banda Ni Kleggy.
“It's so awesome to represent a brand like this,” says Matteo. “Me and my band, we always have it backstage before a show. [I have it] when I'm just hanging out with friends, so it's a good partner.”
Primera Light Brandy was awarded gold in Belgium by the Monde Selection this 2019, recognizing quality given to food and beverage brands that meet strict standards. Primera Light is made with imported Solera Gran Reserva brandy from Spain, giving it an exceptional taste at a reasonable price. “It smells good, tastes good, and the price is within reach of most,” says Matteo.
