Sanakaraang concert ni Gary Valenciano sa Music Museum, kitang-kita na angconfidence ng eldest son niya na si Paolo Valenciano as an artist. Marami angpumuri sa performance ni Paolo nung mag-duet sila ni Gary.
"Iguess, I got more comfortable sa stage kasi I'm part of a rock band and I'vebeen doing that for four years na," bungad ni Paolo nung makausap namin siya sabago niyang show sa TV5 na Midnight DJ.
Walana ba siyang nararamdaman na pressure ngayon bilang anak ni Gary V?
"No,it's more of, I've learned to embrace the fact that Gary V is my dad. So,parang instead of ma-insecure ako, just you know, enjoy it na lang na parang... Iget to watch my dad and perform with him on stage."
Hindimalayo na in the near future he will have his own solo concert at si Gary namankaya ang special guest niya?
"Ay,mukhang hindi mangyayari ‘yon. Personally, kasi medyo low-key ako.
"Hmm....maybe,maybe. Let's see what will happen."
OPPOSITEOF GAB. May nagsasabi na exact opposite sila ng younger brother niya na siGabriel "Gab" Valenciano.
Patiraw pagdating sa babae?
Planoni Gab na mag-aral sa Amerika. What about him?
"Actually,that's also one of my long-term goal. Kasi like everybody knows naman naSalamin is medyo hardcore band. Yung market kasi ng hardcore rito, actually,malaki siya, kaya lang they are not a paying audience, e. So, we'll try it lang[abroad]. At least even if it will not work, at least I know I tried everythingI could."
Kailansiya pupunta ng U.S.?
"Maybenext year. Kasi my dad din is thinking of studying in the States. Sabay-sabayna. Kasi yung dad ko, after his 25th concert this year he wants to try other things na rin."
STARTINGHIS OWN FAMILY. Nagsabi na raw siya kay Gary na magsisimula na siyangmag-ipon bilang paghahanda for his own family. Totoo ba?
"Yeah,I said something like that to him. Like, I don't want to to be too old to havechildren. One reason why I feel that my relationship with my dad is very tightis because of the age difference. He'sonly 20 years older than I. Medyo nakaka-relate siya sa akin. I want to havethe same relationship that my dad has given us."
Maygirlfriend ngayon si Paolo at mukhang willing daw sumunod sa kanya yung babaesa U.S. Aminado si Paolo na seryoso na siya sa current girlfriend niya na gustona niyang pakasalan. Mas seryoso na nga si Paolo sa pag-aasawa kesa kay Gab.
"Yeah.E, syempre , like, I'm not trying to hide it, pero when I was younger, makalattalaga ako, e. I've have already gone through a lot before tying the knot. KayaI feel it's time to get serious. Kasi when people asked me about gettingmarried na, I'd tell them, I'm honest and say I'm not ready pa. Right now, I'mworking on getting ready. Parang getting ready, so that when the time comes,ready na ako."
Mgailang taon pa sa tingin niya?
"Two,three," sagot ni Paolo.
Ayawpabanggit ni Paolo ang name ng non-showbiz na girlfriend niya and soon-to-be hiswife.
"She'salso my childhood friend. In fact, parang best friend na rin niya ako," taposni Paolo.
