Sa isang press conference para sa parating na orchestral at choral performance kasama ang ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra, ibinahagi ni Maestro Gerard Salonga kung gaano siya ka-bilib sa talento ni Vice Ganda bilang singer at comedian.
"My half brother is one of his writers e. So I know that his stuff is really, really well written. He internalizes it, and he's able to pull it off like it's happening just now. That's a good performance," kuwento ni Gerard.
Ayon pa kay Maestro, maituturing niyang true artist si Vice. "He's a good singer. He likes to downplay it e. I think he just gets nervous or something. But actually he's really a good singer. He sounds good, he's really musical. Galing talaga niya. True artist talaga," pahayag ni Gerard sa press.
Naghahanda sa ngayon si Maestro Gerard, kasama ang ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra at Ateneo Chamber Singers sa kanilang partisipasyon sa pinaka-unang documentary screening na may live orchestral performance, ang National Geographic's Symphony for our World.
Inamin ni Gerard na nais niya ring makasama sa isang performance o concert ang Asia's Songbird na si Regine Velasquez.
“At this point ang dami na naming natugtugan e. I think the only thing na lang that is missing, is 'yung bagong dating natin dito sa ABS-CBN, is for Regine (Velasquez) to have a concert with this orchestra. That’s the next big thing, and I think it will happen eventually," sabi ni Gerard.
Dinagdag din ni Gerard sa kanyang wish list ang full-out concert kasama si Gary Valenciano, at Sarah Geronimo. "Other than that... Gary (Valenciano) has performed a lot of times pero single songs lang, not a full-out concert, so that's number one.
"Tapos Sarah (Geronimo) pa, she has not done a concert with us yet. So there's a lot to do," ani Maestro.
Gaganapin sa Solaire Theater ang Symphony for Our World sa November 30
