I may be a nobody to most of you readers, but as a world traveler from a very early age, I have been exposed to different types of musicians and performing artists. I also watch TV and movies, so I believe I know what I am saying as an observer and not as a critic/critique.
After the concert me and my parents got to talk about it and my dad's observation is that Gary Valenciano is a very selfless person. Even if he believes he is no longer the "Total Performer", he is more than that. He also believes that Gary's faith in God is genuine. He loves Him above all and he loves his family next.
|Gary V. and the World Class Artists|
I will only write about things I remember, but I guarantee that EVERY performance is worth watching. There's no dead air at all, so please catch them still next weekend(I was pretty busy the whole day so I was not able to write about this immediately), same time(8:00PM), same place(The Theatre at Solaire) from Friday, May 19 to Saturday, May 20.

|Gary and Kiana (What More Can I Say?)|
her own major concert.
|Kiana's time to shine|
Katrina Velarde, who perfomed a very memorable scat number---Al Jarreau's Spain---with him, among others, is an "alumna" of X Factor Philippines, just like Allan Silonga, and of Talentadong Pinoy. She has been an amateurist since the age of seven.
|Lara Maigue on spotlight|
Lara Maigue is an opera singer who composes her own music. Even if she has classical training, she is versatile. My tocaya comes from a family of musicians and her star deserves to shine brightly, because she is oozing with talent.
|Michael "Mitoy" Yonting duet with Gary V (Natutulog ba ang Diyos?)|
Bullet Dumas has a different sound and he composes/arranges music transcending them(the ones that are not his own) to different levels/heights. He gave a different sound to the popular song dedicated to the OFWs called Babalik Ka Rin, which he performed with Gary V.
|Carla and Jimmy (Could You Be Messiah?)|
|Take Me Out of the Dark with RJ and Tim|
Mon Faustino(who is also the Musical Director and head of his band) sang two songs masterfully(Reaching Out and Sana Maulit Muli).
Janice Javier was one of my favorites during the 1st season of The Voice. She has a very powerful voice, but she knows how to make her voice sweet and mellow too. Her number with Gary V was "Hataw Na" and she danced gracefully and sang it melodically.

|Judging these artists "The Kuya Germs" way was close to impossible because they are so multifaceted|
|The two KVs (Kiana and Katrina) during Gary's tribute for Angeli|
|Yes, these artists deserve to have their names in lights all over the universe|
