The boxing champ-senator, Manny Pacquiao is excited to have his sons, especially Michael to perform with him in a concert.
“Yes! Gusto kong magkaron sila ng experience sa pagkanta. Especially si Michael dahil gustung-gusto niyang kumanta at gumawa ng kanta. Gusto niya siya ‘yung nagku-compose at naga-arrange,” expressed the boxer-turned-politician.
Sen. Pacquiao then narrated how his son Michael is into music, that even his room is filled with musical equipment.
“Yung anak kong si Michael mahilig talaga sa music. Yung bahay niya, yung kwarto niya, puro gamit ay music eh,” he shared.
“So sana makita ko sila na kumakanta sa stage,” he added.
Meanwhile, the senator’s eldest son, Jimuel, is an official part of ABS-CBN talent management, Star Magic. He is currently a member of the newest teen-barkada, The Squad Plus.
When asked how does he support his children’s aspiration, Sen. Pacquiao admitted that he and his wife, Jinkee give all the support that they need as long as it is for their betterment.
“Suportado naman namin yung mga anak namin. As long as makikita namin na mabuti para sa kanila, wala kaming hadlang o tutol sa mga gusto nila.”
In the meantime, the senator is included in the virtual fund-raising concert Isang Tinig, Isang Lahi.
There he will perform alongside some of the biggest artists, both locally and internationally. He will be singing two of his original songs, Lalaban Ako and Para Sa ‘Yo.
