Aside from the 351-member delegation bound for the 15th Asian Games, the Philippines sends one more Filipino to represent the country.
The Doha Asian Games Olympic Committee has named Gary Valenciano the official interpreter and performer of the 15th Asian Games anthem/theme song, “Heart of the Games.” The sports competition among neighboring countries commences on December 1-15 in Doha, Qatar.
Aside from interpreting and performing the song, Gary—deservedly publicized as Mr. Pure Energy, as he is hyperkinetic when on stage—will also be starring in a music video to be shown in different Asian television stations.
Gary recently celebrated his 23rd year in show business. He is recognized as an A-lister among performers in Asia, but is also known in Filipino communities in North America. Earlier this month, he went on a U.S. tour, performing in California and New Jersey.
