How far would fans go these days to show their support for their favorite celebrity?
Some fans give their idols expensive gifts, while others constantly follow their gigs everywhere.
But avid supporters of Xian Lim and Kim Chiu, collectively known as KimXi, are making the extra effort by producing a concert for Xian.
This inspires Xian to give fans, especially KimXian Around the Globe (KATG), unforgettable performances on his second concert.
Titled Songs in the Key of X, it will be held at The Theatre, Solaire Resort and Casino in Parañaque City on July 15.
“Yung drive is yes na yes,” said the 27-year-old Kapamilya actor-singer.
“For them to do that para sa akin, I wanna say it's very heartwarming.
“Nakaka-inspire lang na someone's willing to produce, someone's willing to help me, hindi lang yung pupuntahan natin siya sa isang event. It's more of sa career, sa gusto kong gawin.”
Xian felt that the offer from fans to produce his concert was very timely.
“Kumbaga, pumunta sila sa kung ano talaga ang gusto ng puso ko.
“Sabi nila, 'Sige, kung ito ang gusto mo para sa birthday mo, ibibigay namin ito.
“'If the network can't give you opportunities, if some shows don't want to give a break, we will give you a break.'
“So yun pa lang, parang nakakataba lang ng puso.
“At the same time, tinatanong ko rin ang sarili ko, 'What did I do to deserve this kind of love from everyone na sumusuporta sa akin?'
“Doon, sila pumunta, e, kung saan parang mahapdi. 'We see your worth and we're gonna give it to you,' yun po ang sinasabi nila, e.
“Thank you. Sobrang thank you talaga.”
To show that he appreciates the fans' generous gesture, Xian makes sure that he puts in enough time and effort to give them a very good show.
Xian already considers his fans as part of his family.
"As of this time, ang pasasalamat ko talaga is more of time. Kung kailangan nila ako, they want to spend time with me, nandito naman ako palagi, e.
“Talagang they have the freedom to visit me anytime. And there's no walls between us.
“I don't even like the word fan. I don't really like that word.
“Kumbaga, it's more of friends and family. They become friends and eventually, they become family na rin.
“To get that support from them is talagang kakaiba.
“Not everyone is give that kind of support, that solid support talaga.
“For years, they've been there for years, na sinasalo nila ako whenever I feel down.”
For this unwavering support, Xian is very thankful to his and Kim's fans.
“Talagang I'm just so grateful. No amount of gifts can replace those,” he said.
In Songs in the Key of X, Xian will be joined by his fellow Kapamilya stars Matteo Guidicelli, KZ Tandingan, and Jona.
This will be directed by Alco Guerrero and musical direction by Chino David.
