Actress turned recording artist Gretchen Barretto was given a pleasant birthday surprise when her sisters Marjorie and Claudine serenaded her during the ASAP ‘08 episode aired earlier today, March 9. The eldest of the Barretto sisters celebrated her 38th birthday on March 6.
The presence of Gretchen's sisters emphasized the fact that they all have reconciled and left all their quarrels in the past. In fact, after the three of them sang "Points of View," Claudine told her sister, "Happy birthday and you have no choice but to have us back in your life."
To this, La Greta answered gratefully, "I love it that I have no choice."
Marjorie also greeted Gretchen and said to her, "I love you." Earlier, in a taped interview with the councilor of Caloocan, she pointed out that Gretchen is "very dependable" and that she has a way of lifting you up when you're down. "I'm glad to have you back in my life," said Marjorie in her birthday message for Gretchen, who had a three-year rift with her younger sisters.
La Greta shed tears of joy while singing the song with her sisters during the Sunday variety show. She managed to joke, "Kaya ako naiyak dahil live ‘yon [her sisters' singing]. Alam n'yo naman sila ang pinakamamahal ko sa buhay ko at nandito sila para sa akin.
"Napakasaya ng birthday ko dahil nandito kayo lahat," said Gretchen as she addressed the ASAP audience. La Greta is back in the spotlight to promote her 12-track album Unexpected, which is released under Star Records.
