Gary Valenciano, one of the best music specials

Gary Valenciano scores international

After appearing on With Love Gary Valenciano, one of the best music specials produced by ABS-CBN, which not only aired on the Kapamilya Channel but was also replayed on Studio 23 and globally through The Filipino Channel (TFC), Gary V scores yet another victory as he recently conquered the tough New Zealand market.

Despite the lack of TFC in the country, thousands flocked to the concert, proving the strength of Gary in the overseas market. Backstage a Kiwi native who was part of the security said, “I didn’t know who he was but after watching and listening to him, I’m a fan! He is good!” Gary was surprised when a Malaysian fan Ming Lim (wearing a Gary V T-shirt) together with Filipino wife Hazel, of Sydney flew to Auckland just to watch the concert.

Performing with him was eldest son Paolo Valenciano, who drew screams and cheers from the  3000-strong audience when he sang his father’s hits like “Babalik ka Rin,” “Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos,” “What More Can I Say,” and “Hang On.”  The handsome but shy singer/songwriter is currently a member of the rock band Salamin and occasionally does session lead vocals for Rivermaya.  He joined his father and brother music producer/dancer, ASAP ROCKS mainstay Gabriel, in Virginia Beach as they performed in a live full concert at the CBN Grounds last October 1 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of 700 Club USA.
