Susan, Susan, Babae Ka

I don’t exactly remember how I met Susan and became a little closer to her than just listening from a distance in a folk bar or chancing upon her on a television show or hearing her name in some conversations with artists.

Oh, but I do recall that the first time I really spoke with her was when she shared some of her favorite music collections to my daughter, Diyosa, saying they would fit her voice and style.

And the friendship flourished, which I didn’t imagine to happen as I was only a fan of her compelling voice in that equally compelling women’s rights song, “Babae Ka!” And, much to my joy, she would indulge me with her rendition of my favorite Sergio Mendes’ “Hey, Look at the Sun” when I make a request at her gigs. Thank you, Susan.

Friends have put together a show for her, on 03 July 2008, Thursday, 6-9:30pm, at My Bro’s Mustache on Sct Lozano cor Sct Madrinan in Quezon City. You see, she was diagnosed with cancer of the ovary, stage 1. And friends can do no less–Lolita Carbon, Joey Ayala, Becky Demetillo, Lester Demetillo, Pete Lacaba, Chickoy Pura, Noel Cabangon, Bayang Barrios, Cooky Chua, Joel Saracho, Bagong Dugo, and one special guest–in a mini concert to help her fight it! “Habi at Himig,” her music album in CD will be on sale.

Make no mistake. Ms. Susan Fernandez is bubbly like always. Ah, Susan, babae ka nga!

See you all!

It’s a no-smoking night at My Bro’s on July 3! Yahoo!!!
