Odette Quesada's Timeless Hits: Like a Little Black Dress, Always in Style

Reserve your tickets for this musical celebration on May 11 and on May 12

LOS ANGELES – MARCH 11, 2024 – Renowned Filipino songwriter and composer, Odette Quesada, is set to mark four decades of musical brilliance with the "Odette Quesada All Hits Concert Series," a two-night extravaganza to be held on May 11 at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA, and on May 12 at the prestigious Fox Theatre in Redwood City, CA.
For Quesada, this milestone is not just about the years of musical brilliance but the incredible connection with her audience that has made the journey truly special.
After the overwhelming success of three sold-out concerts in Manila in September and in November last year, Quesada expressed that the warm and fuzzy welcome from the audience is what makes celebrating her 40th anniversary so extraordinary. The genuine outpouring of love and appreciation has touched her deeply, reinforcing the profound impact her music has had on people's lives.
In a recent interview, Quesada shared her gratitude, saying, "A lot of listeners or fans message me on Facebook or Instagram, thanking me for all the songs I've created. These songs have been part of their youth, their falling in love or falling out of love, their marriages, their divorces."
When asked about how her songs have endured the test of time, Quesada disclosed, "I feel it could be the simplicity of the songs. It's like a little black dress. The standard cuts of a dress, because of their simplicity, you can always wear a nice black dress any decade." She likened her songwriting style to this iconic fashion piece, emphasizing that the simplicity allows her songs to transcend trends.
Reflecting on her songwriting process, Odette shared insights into the spontaneous inspiration behind some of her greatest hits. "Writing my songs usually came from out of the blue. Sometimes it's a word or a phrase," she revealed.
As an example, she recounted the genesis of the classic "Till I Met You," saying that when she got on a bus to go home from the University of the Philippines’ College of Music, she sat in front of a couple of girls, “who were talking to each other and saying, you know, I never knew what love was until I met this guy. So, ‘I never knew what love was’ stuck with me. I wrote it down on a piece of paper. And when I got home, I wrote the song 'Till I Met You' based on that phrase."
Quesada, an iconic figure in the music industry, has penned numerous chart-topping hits that have become timeless classics.
Be there on May 11, Saturday, at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA, and on May 12, Sunday,  at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City, CA, to pay tribute to the everlasting appeal of Quesada's musical legacy.
"Odette Quesada All Hits Concert Series” - presented by AIP Media Productions, Inc., Crossover Events, and TFC - promises to be a spectacular celebration of nostalgia, melody, and the enduring power of music. It is also part of the many offerings of TFC’s 30th anniversary celebration. Go to for tickets and for more information.
