Kat Luna-Abelarde, FVP and Head of Wireless Consumer Operations for Smart said, “Smart Music Live is just the tip of the iceberg because there’s an entire roster of international acts to witness and experience in the coming months if you’re a Smart subscriber.

The group’s songs, including “Halik,” “Luha” and Basang Basa Sa Ulan,” are Filipino sentimental favorites.
