ALDEN RICHARDS celebrated his 28th birthday at the initial telecast of GMA-7’s new weekend noontime show, ‘All Out Sundays’ or simply AOS, a combination musical-comedy-variety show.

It offers many fabulous musical and dance production numbers with the most talented Kapuso stars, a sitcom entitled “TAPSIKRET”, and exciting games like their version of the Hit the Pinata involving celebrities like Janine Gutierrez and her siblings Diego and Jessica, versus BF Rayver Cruz and his brothers Rodjun and Omar.

Alden headlines the show’s star-studded cast that includes Julie Anne San Jose, Aicelle Santos, Mark Bautista, Rayver Cruz, Ken Chan, Rita Daniela, Gabbi Garcia, Derrick Monasterio, Miguel Tanfelix, Kyline Alcantara, Mavy and  Cassy Legaspi, JD Domagoso, plus ‘THE CLASH’ discoveries Season 1 Grand Champion Golden Cañedo, Garrett Bolden,

Season 2 Grand Champion Jeremiah Tiangco and First-Runner Up Thea Astley, Jennifer Maravilla, Antonette Tismo and Neph Medina, plus StarStruck 7 Ultimate Survivors Kim De Leon and Shayne Sava. Starring in the sitcom are Paolo Contis, Glaiza De Castro, Betong Sumaya, Kakai Bautista, Boobay, Super Tekla and Lexi Gonzales.

AOS also launched its all-male dance group composed of five young and talented heartthrobs: Vince Crisostomo, Karl Aquino, Radson Flores, Abdul Raman and Kim De Leon.

Alden says he has a lot to be thankful for as he celebrates his 28th birthday, what with his movie “Hello Love Goodbye” being the past year’s biggest blockbuster sure to earn him the Box Office King title.

Meantime, his current primetime drama, “The Gift”, has just been extended for a few more weeks and the story is getting more intriguing now that Jean Garcia as Nadia has discovered that Alden as Sep is really her long lost son.

Jean is imploring Jo Berry as Straw, Alden’s adoptive mom who raised him, to help her reveal the truth to Alden that she is really his birth mom. Of course, Jo won’t take things sitting down and what follows is another dramtic confrontation between the two moms.

A new chapter is set to start soon with Jean trying to make up for lost time with her son and with her getting back at her abusive husband, Christian Vasquez as Javier, who has been so cruel to Alden all this time.

We asked Alden what is his personal birthday wish. “Wala na siguro kasi the Lord has already been generous to me. Wish ko na lang for everyone is peace, prosperity and contentment. Gusto ko ring mas marami pa sana akong matulungan. This coming July 25, I will have a major concert at the Araneta Coliseum to celebrate my 10th anniversary in showbiz.

"All the proceeds from that concert, ibibigay ko sa Kapuso Foundation and I will leave it all up to them kung sino ang gusto nilang bigyan ng donations. Whatever blessings given to me, I just want to share it and give back to the needy.”
