Gary Valenciano Will Have An Exciting Season Finale For His 34th Year Series Of Concerts, 'Gary V Presents', At The Solaire Theatre On May 12 & 13, 19 & 20

GARY VALENCIANO was his usual electrifying himself when he performed “Huwag Ka Nang Umiyak” and a medley of his danceable tunes like “Hataw” and “Di Bale Na Lang” at the videoke presscon for his concert series, “34 Years of Gary V at the theater in Solaire”, which will be held on May 12 & 13, 19 & 20. Up to now, we can think of no one who can replace Gary when he does his upbeat numbers which he does so naturally. That’s why it’s tough to be a child of Gary as he has set a very high standard that even his own kids cannot top. To think that he has early onset diabetes for almost 4 decades, and yet, he remains to be a tireless dynamo up to now.

And Gary also remains to be one of those iconic celebrities whose great PR remains unmatched. He knows everyone and is very warm and friendly especially to the writers who’ve been around since the time he started in showbiz. Gary’s series of concerts, “Gary V Presents”, that aims to pay it forward by introducing younger singers to today’s audiences was a big hit. All those who went to see it at Kia Theatre last year raved not only about Gary but also his guest singers who represent a wide variety of genre from pop and R&B to jazz and classical music.

At his presscon, seven of his guests singers at the Solaire also performed: Katrina Velarde who did “And I Am Telling You” from “Dreamgirls”, Janice Javier with “Killing Me Softly”, Carla Guevarra with a moving rendition of “I’d Give My Life for You” from “Miss Saigon”, Lara Maigue who showed her fine training in classical music with “Sa Kabukiran” that brought the
house down, and male singers Timmy Pavino, Allan Silonga of Daddy’s Home and RJ de la Fuente. Other singers in Solaire will be Mitoy Yonting of “The Voice”, Jimmy Marquez, Bullet Dumas and Gary’s darling daughter, Kiana Valenciano. Original Manoeuvres dancers Jason and Joshua Zamora will join the show with the Adlib Dancers.

The show will be a season finale and for his next concert series, Gary hopes to feature a different set of young artists. “This is part of my advocacy to provide younger singers with a bigger platform to showcase their music to wider audiences nationwide. But of course, this first set of performers in ‘Gary V Presents’ will always have a special place in my heart.”

The concert series is for the benefit of the diabetes and scholarship programs of the Shining Light Foundation. For tickets, call Ticketworld at 891-9999, Ticketworld online, or his sexy PR Chuck Gomez at 0917-8872859, or email chuckgomez.take5@gmail.com. Gary V then goes to the US for his concert tour at the M Resort Las Vegas on May 27, Pechanga Resort on June 3, Pasadena Civic Auditorium on June 10, and the Philippine Independence Day celebration on June 12 at Salt Lake City in Utah with Kat Velarde, Kiana Valenciano and Sam Concepcion as his special guests.
