Adriana Gravador’s “Journey With Me” Night



By Richard J Ford - PRO VAA Inc.
Sydney-Australia
September 20, 2016

 
 



Adriana’s mother Lynette is from Cebu City, and her father, Arnold is from Davao. Adriana was born in Cebu City, Philippines. Purple is her favourite colour.

To help her celebrate the night was an array of delightful singers. First there was Jing Cotelo her Auntie, of whom she sang a duet with, and at this juncture, one heard the crystal-sounding voice of Adriana herself. Also were Hanna Margaret Perez who was Miss Australasia Charity Queen 2014 and Miss Charity Queen Ambassador of Breast Cancer 2015 and Chelsea Castillo, both young delightful upcoming singers.

The music was provided by the ever popular M2 Band. A surprise visitor was a group of dancers called STREETBUCK who represented the Philippines and competed in the World Supremacy Battleground last September 11, 2016 and won Silver Medal for the Monster Crew Division, held at Rosehill Gardens. They were very moving and electrifying, so worthy of their win.


To cap the night was Adriana’s 17th Birthday celebration – the crowd sang the birthday song followed by the blowing of the candles and cutting of the cake, then the well-wishers took the moment to give their best wishes. The event was emceed by Ate Chita Chen Serra, her Manager, who commented that all raffle proceeds on the night will go towards the Visayan Association of Australia Inc.’s Projects in the Philippines. As the evening finished we all can see that Adriana’s “Journey With Me” has only begun.
