Alden Richards warms the hearts of his fans as he releases his newest single under GMA Records entitled “I Will Be Here.”
This revival, which will be included in his upcoming album, promises the comfort of having someone to hold on to. His heartfelt rendition gave way to getting across the message of the song.
“Minsan kasi, when realities are too painful to see or to encounter in real life, you tend to look away from it,” says Alden.
He understands that struggles may differ from other people, but he believes that the love behind offering comfort to those who are distressed is universal.
“The message of the song is offering a shoulder to cry on, or parang I’m here for this person, group of people, na maaaring may pinagdadaanan,” he adds.
As he releases his new single, he promises that he will continue to bring joy to the people he loves the most. With his most honest emotions at heart, he wishes that “I Will Be Here” will be his supporters’ choice of comfort whenever they need someone to rely on.
“I Will Be Here” is available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other leading digital stores worldwide. Its music video may be viewed via Daily Motion.

By Daily Tribune — June 17, 2018By Gelyka Ruth R. Dumaraos, Contributor “It is only you who can fail or succeed to reach your dreams. No one but you, and that’s what I want my kids to know.” Filipino rapper and song writer Gloc 9 says no dreams should be hindered by people who may try to bring you down. Gloc 9 (real name Aristotle Pollisco) knows how, despite life’s struggles, it is possible to realize one’s aspirations — by firmly believing in yourself. This is what the music icon, dubbed as “Makata sa Pinas,” wants to impart to his kids. This Father’s Day, Gloc-9 reiterates this to his kids: “Sa aking mga anak at kahit na sino lalo na sa mga bata ay walang puwedeng magsabi sayo na hindi mo puwedeng tuparin yung mga pangarap mo (To my kids and even to other children, no one should tell you that you can’t reach your dreams),” Gloc-9 said in an interview. The 40-year-old rapper stressed that nobody should decide your dream’s fate because you will be the one who shall make it come to life. “Ikaw lang ang puwedeng mag-fail or makapagpatupad ng pangarap mo. Walang iba kundi ikaw lang so ‘yun ang gusto ko lang iwanan sa kanila (It is only you who can fail or succeed to reach your dreams. No one but you, and that’s what I want my kids to know),” he adds. Gloc-9 is father to 13-year-old twins Sean and Shaun and 15-month-old baby girl Sav, his kids with wife Thea Pollisco. Even when it’s not Father’s Day, Gloc-9 sees to it that special occasions and free time from work are well-spent with his kids. He says, “Lagi naman ‘yun ang agenda ko kapag Father’s Day at mayroon akong libreng araw to be with my children (It is always my priority to be with my family during Father’s Day and when I have a free day).” Aside from this, the multi-awarded Pinoy rapper also highlights being patriotic as he has always tried to impart through his music in the last 21 years. His hits, including “Upuan,” “Magda,” “Sirena,” “Hari ng Tondo” and many more, have sparked a critical perspective for social issues. Gloc-9 x New Era Being a Pinoy rap icon, Gloc-9 was recently launched as the brand ambassador of international brand New Era for its Filipino-themed collection last June 12 at the TriNoma Activity Center. “We are very proud to work with a great Filipino talent like Gloc-9 for this special collection,” Maritess See-Lazaro, COO of New Era Cap Philippines, said. “We believe that he is best to represent our brand, knowing that he’s making a name for himself, not just here, but also internationally. He embodies everything that is great with Filipino artistry and we know that New Era fans are excited about this partnership and would love this collection.” As part of the brand’s third year anniversary in the Philippines, New Era and Gloc-9 collaborated to create the new line, highlighting the icon’s contribution in the music scene. The Gloc-9 Limited Edition Collectible caps include a snapback 9FIFTY silhouette cap that has an embroidered “Makata sa Pinas” gold text on the front of the crown. The design includes a stanza, which says “Kaya sa gabi ako’y palaging nakatingala, kasi puwede palang maging sigurado ang baka” stitched on the right side of the crown. This was from one of his hit songs “Alalay ng Hari (from his album, MKNM: Mga Kwento ng Makata) which tells of his humble beginnings under the mentorship of the late master rapper Francis Magalona. Gloc-9 expressed his gratitude to his supporters and New Era for believing in his work as a profound lyricist.
By Edwin P. Sallan, Concept News Central — July 21, 2018Reel and rumored real-life sweethearts Janella Salvador and Elmo Magalona will be among the performers in this year’s edition of Fiesta in America. Now on its 20th year, the annual event that takes place in New Jersey, New York is regarded as the largest consumer and cultural expo on the East Coast. It is organized by Nanding Mendez and his wife, Laura Garcia. According to Fiesta in America founder Nanding Mendez, the event draws the largest crowd of Filipino Americans not only from the New York state, but five other states as well. “Fiesta in America is a blend of trade and cultural exposition that also assists Filipino businesses in penetrating the mainstream consumer market, while showcasing the best of Philippine culture,” Mendez said at a recent news conference at Limbaga 77 in Quezon City. “This year, Fiesta in America will again feature festive pavilions showcasing trade and the rich Filipino heritage.” As one of the most sought-after young stars in the Philippines, Janella Salvador became a household name with the daytime teleseryes, Be Careful with My Heart and Oh My G! which was then followed by memorable big-screen performances in Haunted Mansion, Mano Po 7: Tsinoy, Bloody Crayons, My Fairy Tale Love Story and, most recently, So Connected. When Janella was first paired with Elmo Magalona in the primetime soap, Born For You, the palpable chemistry between the two has since endeared them to fans and reportedly, to each other. Being the daughter of singer Jenine Desiderio and musician Juan Miguel Salvador, Janella is also an accomplished recording artist with a full album and several hit singles to her name. Like Janella, Elmo is a talented singer and actor and has been in the entertainment industry since 2009. In addition to his big-screen team-ups with Janella, Elmo also made his mark in films like Tween Academy: Class of 2012, Just One Summer, #Y and most recently, Walwal. Prior to being romantically linked with Janella, Elmo was the other half of another popular love team with Julie Anne San Jose. Aside from Elmo and Janella a.k.a. Elnella, accomplished singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid and popular ‘60s hitmakers Gary Lewis and the Playboys are scheduled to perform at the cultural show of Fiesta in America. The trade expo will take place from August 11 to 12 at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, New Jersey.
