Ogie Alcasid Celebrates Becoming A Golden Boy With A Special Birthday Concert At KIA Theatre Then Flies To Paris With Family

OGIE ALCASID was born on August 27, 1967 so he will be a golden boy this year. To celebrate, he will have a birthday concert at KIA Theater on August 25, Friday. The beneficiary will be the charitable organization, World Vision and their projects against child exploitation, a very noble cause indeed.

“I have received so many blessings kaya when World Vision asked me to help them, yes agad ako at hindi ko sila siningil at all,” he says.

In the concert, you will hear Ogie sing his latest songs from his new album, “NakakaLokal”, for which he just shot a music video. It has ten songs where he is accompanied by the ABS-CBN symphony orchestra conducted by Gerard Salonga. It has six original songs, including “Nakakalokal,” “Ikaw ang Tanging Pag-ibig Ko,” “Akala Ko,” “Di Na Muli,” “Di Ka Pababayaan,” and the upbeat track “Do You Wanna Dance With Me,” where Ogie shows he still has the energy to sing and dance even if he’s now a golden boy.

His special guests are Angeline Quinto, Erik Santos, Jaya, Yeng Constantino of Cornerstone, and Solenn Heussaff, Lovi Poe and his own daughter, Leila Alcasid. So how is Leila’s career doing? “She’s preparing for her first album. Tinutulungan siya ni Marion Aunor as the producer and voice coach niya si Lara Maigue. She writes her own songs at iba ang sound niya, very millennial. Hindi siya nagmamadali, pero 6 months pa lang siya rito ang dami ng kumukuha. May mga La Salle students na gusto siyang kuning muse nila. Ang dami ring nanliligaw. Nagpapaalam naman sa’kin. Dad, someone is asking me to have coffee. Sabihin mo sa kanya, you can have coffee rito sa bahay. Pag gusto siyang ilabas, sabi ko, tell them to call me up muna at, tumatawag naman para kausapin ako.”

What if she’d have a boyfriend soon? “May magagawa ba ko? But as of now, I think serious siya in having a career here kaya nandoon ang focus niya.”

Ogie will be leaving for Paris on August 26, the day after his concert, with his whole family and he will celebrate his birthday there on August 27. “Tapos, direcho na kami sa pag-attend ng wedding ni Dr. Vicki Belo,” he adds.
