Morissette is reviving Gary Valenciano's inspirational hit "Could You Be Messiah," the 24-year-old singer announced on Thursday, February 25. 

"Secret's out. I am reviving Tito @garyvalenciano's beautiful and powerful hit #CouldYouBeMessiah," she said in her latest post on Instagram.

"What a great honor to be reinterpreting this. Rearranged by no other than Tito Gary V himself and music video directed by my love," she added, before tagging her fiancé, Dave Lamar.

Morissette's version of "Could You Be Messiah" is for the reimagination of the first local Christian musical First Name by the late theater icon Freddie Santos.

Titled First Name Anew, the show will happen on February 27 and 28 and will be streamed exclusively on KTX.ph. It is spearheaded by local theater production company Trumpets.

 

 

The musical serves as a tribute to Freddie—known for his extensive work in local theater and live concerts—who passed away last December 14. He was 64. 

Aside from Morissette, First Name Anew, will also feature performances by Sam Concepcion, Aicelle Santos, Christian Bautista, Jett Pangan, Sheila Valderama-Martinez, Lance Busa, Bullet Dumas, Tim Pavino, Nanette Inventor, and Tippy Dos Santos.

The original version of First Name was staged in 1998. It is where "Could You Be Messiah" was born. Aside from First Name, Freddie is also known for his musical Joseph the Dreamer, whose 1999 staging starred Gary.
