Anne Curtis, a self-confessed non-singer who has nonetheless staged several sold-out concerts here and abroad, is gearing up for yet another major show in August.
Given the nearing date, Curtis' "sisterette" and "It's Showtime" co-host Vice Ganda couldn't help but once again make the actress' singing voice the subject of his jokes.
During the "Miss Q&A" segment of the noontime show, their interview with the contestant came to the topic of beauty, prompting Vice Ganda to quip that Curtis' voice was the exception to their otherwise beautiful presence on stage.
"Your voice is not beautiful, but I think it's a blessing. Your voice is a big blessing, because every time we hear your voice, we realize that our voice is more blessed than yours," he said, triggering laughter from the audience.
The joke reminded Curtis to promote her concert, "Anne-Kulit," which will happen at the Araneta Coliseum on August 18, with tickets to go on sale starting June 15.
Noting that there were three days still before fans could buy their tickets, Vice Ganda said, in jest, that state weather bureau PAGASA was actually the reason behind the schedule — a reference to the rainy season.
"Hindi pa ho nagbibigay ng 'go' signal ang PAGASA para magbenta ng tiket. Sabi ng PAGASA, 'Anne, ibigay mo muna sa amin ito,'" the comedian said.
Vice Ganda, who frequently co-hosts with Curtis on "It's Showtime," has made a running gag over the latter often bursting into song during live episodes, and on special occasions, staging production numbers that include her singing.
