Apart from fulfilling her own dream, singer-actress Glaiza de Castro said that her upcoming maiden concert titled Dreams Never End is, in part, is her way of giving back to her ever-supportive fans.
The concert which is happening at the Music Museum on October 3, according to a recent interview with Glaiza, was actually not something that she actually planned.
“Sa totoo lang ‘yung pagkakaroon ng concert parang least talaga ‘yun sa mga gusto kong mangyari for this year eh. Parang actually wala nga sa list ko eh,” she said. “Pero ‘yung support kasi ng mga fans or listeners sobrang passionate nila na everytime na mag-gi-gig ako sasabihin nila ‘Concert! Concert! Concert!’ Na parang ‘Guys teka lang!’ Kasi feeling ko hindi pa time.”
But, banking on the idea that things “happen for a reason,” Glaiza nevertheless embraced her latest adventure.
“Kumbaga magtatapos ‘yung taon na ito na nakapag-share ako ng something personal sa mga fans because as a showbiz personality diba part ng trabaho namin na as a public figure laging nauungkat ang personal lives namin. Natutuwa ako na through my music nashi-share ko ang personal life ko,” said Glaiza.
Despite the long and tedious process and preparations involved in organizing the concert, Glaiza reveals that she’s enjoying every minute of it.
She described the experience as “medyo surreal parin hanggang ngayon. Kumbaga parang challenge rin siya in a way, nate-test ang character mo through all these process in preparation of the concert.”
If anything, Glaiza is happy that she’s given the chance to be hands-on about her concert. “Kasi siyempre I really want to be involved in this.”
She added, “Hands-on talaga. From the concept to how the program would flow, to the songs that I would be singing that night. Talagang sobrang involved ako. Hopefully mag-manifest ‘yung message na gusto kong i-convey sa araw na ‘yun.”
What should the fans expect on her first-ever concert?
“Parang journey ng music ko. From the time na na-realize ko na gusto ko talagang tumugtog ng mga sarili kong kanta. Syempre may mga songs na galing sa influences ko. Most of the songs are from the 80s and 90s so may mga nostalgic segments and tribute to all my influences,” said Glaiza.
Glaiza’s first-ever concert titled Dreams Never End is happening on October 3 at the Music Museum. Her guests include Jay-R, Aiza Seguerra, Rhian Ramos, Kitchie Nadal and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid.
