Jeremy Passion Lives Up to His Name In Manila Performance

Jeremy Passion on stage at Teatrino, Greenhills.

As I am part of the chunk in what we now call the Generation X (born in the mid 60’s to early 70’s), I was bracing myself for a generation gap scenario when I was invited to watch Jeremy Passion Live in Manila.  My first reaction was… uuhmm.. Jeremy who? Then I made my own research of this YouTube sensation to quench my curiosity.  I felt better after watching his videos… I decided it was not much of a generation gap after all, as I am actually a fan of Ne-Yo, plus Jeremy’s soulful renditions of R & B covers melted my Gen X heart.
