Maja Salvador does not mind having a smaller venue for her third concert, "Para sa akin, basta maipakita mo lang ang passion mo at love mo sa work, sa pagpe-perform."



Maja Salvador feels grateful to be given once again an opportunity to perform for her fans through another concert titled Only Maja.

The 28-year-old Kapamilya actress thought she would not have another concert after her Majasty concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in 2015.

Maja admitted that that the venue at that time was too big to fill.

She recalled, “From the start naman, parang prinepare ko na ang sarili ko.

Noong sinabi nilang 'yong Majasty ang venue ay sa MOA, noong una natakot po ako.

Siyempre, hindi naman sa nagda-doubt ako sa kakayanan ko, pero hindi ko alam na that's the time na mag-MOA na talaga ako.

But siyempre, producers ang nag-decide, di ba?

Bilang ako artista, gusto kong mag-perform, magpasaya ng tao, sila naman talaga ang may final say kung saan ang venue, so ginawa ko pa rin.”

The ABS-CBN's “dance princess” said she was ready for any comment about the outcome of her supposed first major concert.

She told reporters at the October 25 press conference of her upcoming concert titled Only Maja, “Nire-ready ko rin ang sarili ko sa kung ano 'yong outcome ng concert—kung marami ang manonood o di marami ang manonood; kung marami, may masasabi; kung konti lang ang manonood may mga magba-bash.

Naka-ready ang sarili ko doon. Tinanggap ko na maybe hindi pa 'yon ang tamang oras for me para mag-MOA.”

Maja was not able to fill up the MOA Arena, but she still did her best when she performed her grand production numbers.

After Majasty, Maja did not expect to be offered another concert.

Medyo nag-[alala] ako na baka wala ng producers na mag-produce,” she said.

CHOOSING TO BE HAPPY. Maja disclosed that instead of sulking over the Majasty concert, she chose to stay positive.

Feeling ko napaka-positive kong tao para ma-depressed,” Maja said.

Parang, I know how to balance everything lang.

Pinipili ko lang 'yong mga bagay na ikalulungkot ko.

Then, sasabihin ko na if I'm not happy today, tomorrow pwede akong gumawa ng something new na makakapagpa-happy sa akin o sa ibang tao.

Lagi kong sinasabi sa sarili ko na huwag mong hayaan na ikaw mismo ang malungkot para sa sarili mo.

Hindi 'yon makakatulong sa'yo, lalo na sa health mo.

Mahalin at mahalin mo lang ang sarili mo at pagkatiwalaan mo lang talaga.”

Maja said it also strengthened her faith to God.

I know that God will make a way,” she said.

Parang kung kakapit ka lang talaga sa Kanya, kung magtitiwala ka lang sa faith mo sa Kanya, ibibigay Niya hindi lang 'yong kung ano ang ipinagdasal mo or 'yong hinihintay mong ibigay Niya.

Bibigyan ka Niya ng chance para makuha ang gusto mo.”

A NEW OPPORTUNITY. True enough, Maja received another offer to do concert this year. Thanks to MFE Events Organizer and Starboard who asked her to do Only Maja in Music Museum on November 12.

She said gratefully, “Ito nga, dumating si Ms. Ma Fe, hindi ko alam kung ano ang nakita niya sa akin.

“Noong tinanong niya sa akin kung okay lang ba sa Music Museum, sabi ko, walang problema 'yon kasi at least may mga tao na nagtitiwala pa rin sa akin at parang gusto akong intrumento para makapagpasaya ng mga tao.”

Maja reiterated that venue is never an issue as long as she's able to perform for her loyal fans.

“Tinanggap ko, sabi ko, wala 'yan sa venue,” she said.

“Para sa akin, basta maipakita mo lang ang passion mo at love mo sa work, sa pagpe-perform.”

“At saka makita mo 'yong mga manonood sa 'yo na nae-entertain mo nang maigi at masaya sila na makita ka, para sa akin, successful 'yon concert ko noon.”
