One of the most enduring names in the concert scene, Gary Valenciano mounts a concert as a way of giving thanks for his second lease on life.

Only a few names come to mind when you hear the word “longevity.”

Gary Valenciano is one of them.

At 50, Mr. Pure Energy is still on top of his game.

After all, the multi-awarded performer, recording artist, producer, actor, host, and celebrity judge has been in love with music and performing since the age of 14. And the public loved him back.

In 1978, a very young Gary appeared in a commercial for Fress Gusto, the defunct soft-drink brand of San Miguel.

Gary then made his official foray into local showbiz a few years later, in 1982. He marked his first showbiz milestone some two years later, or in 1984, when he staged his first solo concert at the Araneta Coliseum.

From then on, there was no looking back for the talented fellow. Gary made hit after hit, milestone after milestone, collecting awards and plaudits as he went along.

As a recording artist, Gary did a number of albums, some of which were released internationally. He holds the distinction of winning the “Best Male Recording” in Awit Awards 12 times.

As an actor, Gary has worked on 14 full-length movies, appearing alongside such famous actresses as Vilma Santos, Sharon Cuneta, Lorna Tolentino, Maricel Soriano, to name a few.

As a concert performer, Gary has performed at sold-out venues in the Philippines and beyond. He’s been dubbed as the “Michael Jackson of the Philippines” thanks to his high-octane or “hataw” dance moves on the concert stage.

On top of being an OPM legend, he’s been involved in some charitable projects. In 2008, he marked his tenth anniversary as a UNICEF Ambassador.

So it is not surprising that Gary Valenciano, even after successfully dealing with a major health scare this year, is raring to go back to the stage. It’s where his heart belongs. This time around, he’s not staging a concert for the sake of entertainment. He’s doing it for charity as a way of giving thanks for getting a second lease on life.

Titled “Gary V: Mr. Pure Energy in XS,” this concert is a musical event that would help raise funds for the Xavier School charities. It will be held on October 13, 2018 at the Xavier Sports Center in Greenhills, San Juan City. “Gary V, Mr. Pure Energy in XS” will be more memorable because his very own daughter Kiana Valenciano will be joining him on stage.
