NATANONG si Gary Valenciano tungkol kay Gerphil Flores na pumangatlo sa Asia’s Got Talent finals.
Naging controversial si Gerphil noong lumaban siya sa Pilipinas Got Talent dahil sinabihan siya ni Kris Aquino to sing “age-appropriate” song. Classical piece kasi ang inawit ni Gerphil na hindi nagustuhan ni Kristeta kaya naman inilaglag niya ito sa kompetisyon.
“The fact that it’s opera, may niche market ‘yan eh,” paliwanag ni Gary V during his launch as endorser of Puregold’s PurePadala, a remittance service.
“If she goes to Europe and she trains over there, she’ll get it,” dagdag niya.
“Lea Salonga was doing musicals here but hindi gaanong nag-click na click, but when she went there and she did the musicals, um, that’s when it happens.
“Hindi sa hindi siya magaling but her pagiging operatic singer, there’s a very, very small market for that. For a special project, puwede, but to build a following na tipong kasinglaki ng mga tipong Daniel Padilla, she’ll had to do it elsewhere, abroad. And she has a good chance of doing that,” paliwanag pa ni Mr. Pure Energy.
Tuwang-tuwa si Gary nang malaman niya how Puregold’s PurePadala works.
“I’ve heard dreadful stories of parents who have saved up so much and then they send the money to their children for their tuition fee, for example, but instead of paying the tuition ay nag-enjoy sila sa Boracay, sa beach, bringing their friends along. So there’s nothing left now for college. It’s very difficult for families to go through this. At least now, with PurePadala, it is so easy for them to send money,” sabi niya.
