February is the love month and also the concert month. Thus, Ogie's month na rin! In almost half the concerts kasi na mai-stage this month, kasali si Ogie either as the main performer, one of the guests, or even the director himself.
Ara Mina's fundraising concert Loving Ara@15 sa Araneta Coliseum on February 3 has Ogie as guest, along with the other boys of the GMA-7 gag show Bubble Gang na sina Michael V, Wendell Ramos, and Antonio Aquitania.
Dalawa sa mga repeat concerts—that of Erik Santos and Rufa Mae Quinto, ang When Erik Met Rufa, at ang Showgirl ni Vina Morales—ay isa rin si Ogie sa mga guests. Si Ogie pa rin ang magli-lead ng multi-performer cast ng Valentine Komikonsiyerto kasama sina Jaya, Lovi Poe, at sina Wendell and Antonio ulit sa Dagupan Astrodome. On top of that, director na, guest performer pa rin ang Songwriter sa first major concert ni Lovi na It's Gotta Be Love.
Hindi lang ito ang Valentine-related project ni Ogie. Sila rin ni Regine Velasquez ang kakanta ng theme song ng forthcoming movie ng Regal Films and GMA Films na The Promise, starring Richard Gutierrez and Angel Locsin.
Of course, may sarili ring Valentine concert si Ogie together with Ai-Ai delas Alas, ang Love to Laugh. Produced by Star Media from the direction of Archie Castillo, it will be a two-night concert on February 13 and 14 sa Music Museum.
Ang theme ng concert ay si Ai-Ai ang magpapaka-tweetums—hanggang sa makakaya niya, singing Walt Disney tunes—habang si Ogie naman ang magpi-perform ng wacky numbers.
Dadalhin ang Love to Laugh sa limang cities sa Canada and major key cities ng USA this June kung kaya't mawawala na naman pansamantala si Ogie.
Also in the same month of June, Ogie has promised to reveal something. It is "big" daw and "it's personal." Pero may kuwidaw siya—alam na raw yata ng lahat ito so it could be boring.
Pahulaan kung ano ang iri-reveal ni Ogie na "big and personal." Most people think it's about his relationship with Regine and the status of his marriage with former Miss Australia Michelle Van Eimeren.
Then again, the premiere songwriter is also one of the best comedians today so we will never know if this is just another joke or if it is the real deal.
