“Ang sarap po sanang maging Gary V.”
Alden Richards named Gary Valenciano as the singer whom he admires the most.
When asked why he chose the singer more popularly known as Mr. Pure Energy, Alden explained:
“Kasi, all-out performer po si Sir Gary.
“With his age now, yung performance po niya is still unparalleled, wala pa rin pong makapantay.”
He also mentioned that when watching a Gary V concert, he sometimes imagines himself as the one performing on stage.
“Ganun po kasi minsan, kapag nanonood ako ng concert, especially po when a performer is an all-out performer, sings and dances, nai-imagine ko po minsan ang sarili ko, parang ang sarap makagawa ng ganitong show."
Alden talked about his upcoming event during his press conference held recently. Titled Adrenaline Rush, his second major concert will be held at the KIA Theater on September 21, 2018.
“Like, kapag nanonood ako ng videos ng international stars, sina Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber, ang sarap pong they’re doing something that they love and yet napaka-grand, napakasarap ng feeling.
“Sana po ganun ang ma-achieve ko sa concert na ‘to.”
Singing and dancing simultaneously for a number is not really new to Alden since he has done several stunts in some Kapuso variety shows.
However, he admitted, ”Hindi po siya talaga madali. Kaya hands down po talaga ako dun sa performers that do that flawlessly.
“Kasi, mahirap po na yung body movement mo is not aligned with singing, nag-iiba po yung tono."
Alden will be doing these kind of numbers in his Adrenaline Rush concert.
“Yun po yung challenge, most especially po sa akin, on how I will deliver po during those performances,” he said.
Although, admittedly, he’s not a very good singer and a dancer, Alden promises to give his best for his fans.
“To be a performer, hindi naman po kailangang sobrang galing kang singer, hindi kailangang sobrang galing kang dancer. But when you perform, nasa puso mo ang gusto mong mapaligaya ang audience.”
He also assured fans by saying, “Whenever I’m given task, no matter what the circumstances ang dumating sa akin I see to it na I will work my heart out to deliver po para hindi mapahiya sa mga taong naniniwala sa akin.”
In the past, Alden dedicated his previous shows and concerts to his family members and fans.
But for Adrenaline Rush, he wants to dedicate it to himself.
He pointed out, “I just want this concert to be successful for myself kasi previously po, yung mga ginagawa kong project, I always dedicate it to the people outside.
“So ngayon po, for a change, sa sarili ko naman para ma-reward ko ang sarili ko sa mga efforts ko these past years.”
