"For the next five years, I will be going back toschool, I will be taking up Music Production and Audio Engineering forFilms, TV, and Music. I will be taking that up in a school in Fullsile, Orlando,Florida, U.S.A., just eight minutes from our house there. For two straightyears, I will be away, and will be back here. Then, go back again," says Gary Valenciano.



May remaining two nights pa ang His Love concert series niGary Valenciano sa Music Museum; bukas, May 29, at sa Biyernes, May 30.

Sa ikalawang gabi nito noong nakaraang linggo, halos mawalanna ng boses si Gary at ang akala nga ng misis niyang si Angeli Pangilinan aymakakansela ang show. Pero nagkaroon ng milagro bago pa ang show nang gabingmanood kami ng concert. Pagkatapos matingnan si Gary ng doktor niyang si Dr.Llamazares at ipinag-pray over siya ni Brother Ed de Guzman. Bago pa lang angunang pagbungad ni Gary nang gabing yun sa Music Museum, nagtuloy-tuloy angperformance niya at dalawang beses nag-standing ovation ang crowd.

GRAND SALVO. Inihahanda na rin ang grand salvo para sa 25th anniversarycelebration ni Gary sa showbiz at music industry, through a big concert saAraneta Coliseum this November. Pinakamalaki na raw ito kung tutuusin dahilpagkatapos nito, ilang taong mawawala si Mr. Pure Energy sa eksena.

"For the next five years, I will be going back toschool," sabi ni Gary sa PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa isangpanayam. "I will be taking up Music Production and Audio Engineering forFilms, TV, and Music. I will be taking that up in a school in Fullsile, Orlando,Florida, U.S.A., just eight minutes from our house there. For two straightyears, I will be away, and will be back here. Then, go back again."

Aware si Gary na ang absence niya ay pupuwedeng makaapektosa career niya rito.

"Pero pinag-isipan ko nang mabuti 'yan," sabi niya. "I willbe doing this to help more people. It's not just for myself. I want to learnmore to help this industry. I will be doing this for the industry, and formyself, too. In the sense that I don'twant to regret giving up the opportunity while I'm still young enough to spendmore years in school. I don't want to decide on this when I'm 65,"nangingiting sabi ni Gary.

Marami pa rin kasing ibang bagay na gustong gawin si Gary.Nakikita nga niya ang sarili na sa mga susunod na taon, he will be away fromthe limelight as a performer.

"Magko-concert pa rin ako, pero hindi na madalas,"deklara niya. "I'm glad that I still have offers for concert tours abroad.But in the coming years, I guess I have to work with other people in theindustry, behind the lights and cameras."

GARY'S CHILDREN. Ito rin daw ang pangarap ng anak niyang si Gabriel, angmagkaroon ng proper education sa larangan ng musika at performing arts.

"He's more interested in production. But my other son,si Paolo, siguro siya na ang susunod sa akin. Gumagawa na siya ng pangalan as asinger. Ang nakikita ko kay Paolo, he may end up like his mom who's interestedin managing talents," lahad ni Gary.

Very proud dad si Gary sa His Love series niya dahil patiang bunso nilang si Keana ay revelation din as a singer.

BILLY ON ASAP. Kumalat din ang balita na si Billy Crawford ang napipisil napumalit kay Gary V sa ASAP '08.

"Well, just in case I go away," nangingiting sabi niGary. "It's just okay. The management can fill that gap, but my sons willstill be in the show, or they may appear there every now and then.

"Wala namang problema. But so far, if they want to put Billythere, I will still be in the show until the plan materializes, that I reallyhave to leave."
