She kicked, strutted, ran, wiggled, giggled, sang and conquered the multitude with her first song. Not even the rain could upstage Banig, who unknown to her mesmerized audience, was running a 39-degree fever. Banig had to be dragged backstage. People demanded. 'We want BANIG! We want BANIG!' More rains poured." During her visit back in Manila in 1990, she was also invited by Philippine President Corazon Aquino to the Malacanang Palace for a courtesy call.
