- He then declared his undying love to his mother and dedicated his concert for the latter.
Kapuso star Alden Richards successfully wrapped up his sold-out concert, titled “Upsurge”, at Kia Theatre on May 27.
Overwhelmed with his fans’ response, Alden could not contain his emotion as he expressed his gratitude towards them. The Pambansang Bae became more emotional when he remembered his late mother, Rosario, who died from pneumonia more than 9 years ago.
“Sa nanay ko po na matagal nang wala, siguro almost 10 years. Ang sayang lang po kasi hindi niya nakikita lahat ng ito,” he said.
The “Eat Bulaga” host also added, “Ang hirap kasi na parang meron kang na-achieve, pero ‘pag na-achieve mo ‘yung bagay na ‘yun, wala na ‘yung taong pag-aalalayan mo.
“‘Yun ‘yung medyo masakit lang, kasi hindi niya naabutan ang lahat ng ‘to. Kasi every day, when you lose someone na napakahalaga sa‘yo, ang hirap maka-move on, kahit nine years na.”
He then cited his mother as his cornerstone in life. The 35-year-old explained, “Siguro naiintindihan ako ng mga taong nawalan din. Alam nila ‘yung feeling na gusto mo nakikita ka nilang nagpe-perform. Gusto mo nakikita ka nilang nili-live out ‘yung dream for them. Lahat ng lakas ng loob, lahat po ng challenges sa buhay ko, ‘yung nanay ko po, alam ko nandiyan lang siya.”
Moreover, the Kalyeserye star dedicated his concert to his mother as his tears rolled down on his face.
“So, ma, wherever you are, this concert is for you and I love you so much. Hindi na magbabago every day.”
Meanwhile, based on the published article by Abante, someone had shown his interest to produce Alden’s “Upsurge” concert. However, due to the actor’s busy schedule, the follow-up concert was not materialized.
Moreover, Alden is set to do another film with his onscreen partner Maine Mendoza, who also attended his concert as one of his guest performers.
