Glaiza De Castro Gained Lots Of Lesbian Fans Who'll Be Flying In From Abroad To Watch Her Music Museum Solo Concert On October 3

GLAIZA DE CASTRO gained a lot of fans from the LGBT community after playing a similar role in “The Rich Man’s Daughter”. Upon learning that she is having her first solo concert, “Dreams Never End”, at Music Museum on Saturday, October 3, a lot of them quickly bought tickets and it’s now all sold out.
“Some of those who’d watch are even flying in from the U.S., Malaysia, Japan and Dubai,” she says. “Nakakatuwa ang suporta nila sa akin.”

Glaiza has really come a long way since she was introduced by Regal in 2001 in the movie “Cool Dudes 24/7” when she was only 13 years old. Her co-stars in that movie are mostly no longer active: Cogie Domingo, Jemalene Estrada, Angelene Aguilar and Danilo Barrios. Another one, James Blanco, now plays father roles. She’s the only one who continues to gain acclaim not only as one of our today’s most reliable actresses but also a singer. Her album, “Synthesis”, is a certified hit and its success triggered the production of her concert.

“For the initial printing of ‘Synthesis’, 1,000 lang pinagawa namin but it was quickly sold out and has had several reprintings. As of now, nakaka-8,000 copies sold na kami so it’s on its way to being platinum. It’s a labor of love from my friends. Angelica Panganiban helped with two songs and Alessandra de Rossi with one song, so they will be appearing in the concert with me. Guest ko rin si Rhian Ramos after our tandem clicked in ‘Rich Man’s Daughter’, along with Aiza Seguerra, Jay-R, Kitchie Nadal and Asia’s Songbird no less, Ms. Regine Velasquez. I will be jamming with all of them in some very special numbers.”

So what’s her next soap? “Wala pa kasi I’m doing shows abroad. I will be in Singapore on November 7 and from November 26 to December 7, I will be touring five cities in Canada, including Vancouver, Toronto, Winnipeg and Edmonton. But I have finished a new movie, ‘Sleepless’, about call center workers na kulang sa tulog. It’s a rom-com with Dominic Rocco and TJ Trinidad, directed by Prime Cruz for IdeaFirst Company. Ipalalabas ito sa Quezon City Filmfest in November.”

Since tickets for “Dreams Never End” are sold out. They’re now planning to have a repeat. The concert is directed by Rico Gutierrez, with Marc Lopez as musical director and GMA Network as media partner. Will her rumored boyfriend, Benjamin Alves, will be there? “I hope so, but honestly, hindi kami. He was the one who thought of ‘Synthesis’ as the title of my album. We became close when we did ‘Dading’ and we went out as a group, but friends lang talaga kami.
