Alden Richards receives first Gold record award from Universal Records

Alden Richards cried when he received his first Gold Record Award for his self-titled debut album.

Alden Richards, one-half of the phenomenal AlDub loveteam, is now a Gold record-awardee.

Universal Records recently announced that his self-titled debut album has officially reached Gold record status.

On the September 25 episode of Eat Bulaga, Alden received a Gold record plaque from Universal Records’ General Manager Kathleen Dy-Go.

The GMA-7 actor dubbed as the “Pambansang Bae” became emotional and thanked his album producers and supporters for making this possible.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Universal Records for trusting me with my first album na kahit hindi po ako singer ay binigyan nila ako ng chance. Sa lahat po ng sumusuporta ng album, salamat po!” said the teary-eyed actor.

Alden is currently a host of GMA-7’s Eat Bulaga where he is paired with Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza in the phenomenal segment “Kalye-serye.”

Alden's self-titled album contains seven tracks including his covers of "Naaalala Ka" by Rey Valera, "'Di Na Mababawi" by Spongecola and Itchyworms' "Akin Ka Na Lang."

His carrier single, Shamrock's "Haplos," instantly rose to the top of the charts and became the theme of the now defunct Kapuso TV series Mundo Mo’y Akin.


Alden Richards' self-titled debut album under Universal Records is still available at all leading record bars nationwide.
