Duterte crosses off bucket list item: ‘Ikaw’ duet with Sharon Cuneta
He has a lot of incredible life experiences from being a Davao mayor to the country’s president. But even President Duterte still has some things he wanted to experience including singing his favorite song “Ikaw” with megastar Sharon Cuneta.
Last Tuesday night, the President finally got to tick this off his bucket list after Sharon sang “Ikaw” twice during a private dinner in Malacañang.
No less than the megastar spilled the beans about her “happy” encounter with the President, including the mini-concert at the Palace. “Napakadami sumakit tyan namin kasi pinapatawa nya kami! Minsann naman seryoso kwento. Tapos kumanta ako tapos kumanta sya,”she wrote on Instagram.
Duterte has long wanted to sing “Ikaw” with the megastar, according to Agriculture undersecretary Berna Romulo-Puyat who arranged the meeting with President.
“He said na his dream is for him to sing ikaw with her. Actually she sang ‘Ikaw’ kasi favorite song nya talaga yan,” she said.
“Tapos si Louie Ocampo pa who was the composer was there to play the piano! Nahiya sya to sing with her so he was just singing along. Pero after pinilit namin sya to sing so he sang it again while Sharon was watching by the piano,” she added.
