PEP.ph | Taylor Swift thanks Sam Concepcion for "awesome" performance

Sam shines. At exactly 8:00 p.m., Sam Concepcion - who was handpicked by Taylor for the front act—owned the stage with his rendition of Chris Brown's "Yeah 3X," Carl Douglas's "Kung Fu Fighting," Katy Perry's "Firework," and his song "Even If."

Judging from his performance, spiced up by well-choreographed dance moves, the 18-year-old singer came well-prepared.

Another unforgettable moment for Sam was meeting Taylor backstage.

His manager Carlo Orosa related, "Very tight ang security. Pagkatapos nung meet-and-greet ng mga organizers, yung charities, at mga taga-Araneta, muntik nang hindi makalapit si Sam. Buti na lang, mabait yung manager."

Next thing Sam knew, he was face to face with the the dad of the 21-year-old country pop singer, Mr. Scott K. Swift.

The two had a brief chat, where Sam related that his career started in theater, and that he is now the country's Peter Pan.

Mr. Swift's face lit up and said his daughter trained in theater as well.

After a few minutes, Sam finally met the star of the show, whose greeting was, "You're awesome! They love you out there. Thanks for tweeting." Apparently, Taylor had read Sam's posts about her concert.

Orosa witnessed the backstage scene, and described Taylor as "very lovable."

He added, "Nakita ko yung closet [niya], puno ng gitara. Ang dami!"
