Filipino-Puerto Rican singer Gary Valenciano, 54, is back to doing what he loves best, which is performing for the people, just three months after his double health scare. The Original Pinoy Music (OPM) icon is currently preparing for “Gary V, Mr. Pure Energy on XS,” a fund-raising concert for the benefit of Xavier School charities.
This is how Valenciano wants to celebrate his second lease on life. Despite all that he has gone through the past years, the multi-awarded veteran artist has so much to thank for.
Dubbed Mr. Pure Energy, Valenciano survived an emergency heart bypass surgery due to blockage of his left anterior descending artery caused by his type 1 diabetes, which he has been battling for almost 40 years. Moreover, he has successfully beat kidney cancer.
Through Valenciano’s strong faith and the unwavering support of his loved ones, the good news that he was praying for came sooner than later. He shared, “Nakatanggap ako ng message galing sa doktor ko na (I have received a good news from that doctor that) [I’m] cancer-free and no need for chemotherapy, radio therapy.”
“Wala na talaga (It is totally gone),” Valenciano declared. “It’s really, really good news. It’s gone.”
With all these good news, Valenciano will stage “Gary V, Mr. Pure Energy in XS” on October 13, 2018 at the Xavier Sports Center in Greenhills, San Juan, Metro Manila, Philippines. Proceeds from this concert will go to the Xavier School charities.
With all the blessings and the miracles that Valenciano has received, he feels that it is time for him to give back. He has been blessed with a great family as he has a very supportive wife Angeli Valenciano and equally talented children Paolo Valenciano, Gabriel Valenciano and Kiana Valenciano, who would always be by his side no matter what.
“Gary V, Mr. Pure Energy in XS” will not only mark Valenciano’s return to the performing stage after being away from the spotlight for months. It will also be extra special as Kiana will be joining him on stage as his special guest.
Meanwhile, here is a throwback to a performance by Valenciano in 2016:
