As part of the exciting lineup in this year’s Beyond the Stars: Star Magic US Tour which is part of the ABS-CBN talent management agency’s 30th anniversary celebration, Alexa Ilacad shared that she cannot wait to finally meet her US fans face-to-face. “It’s a huge honor na mapasama sa ganitong klaseng event. I’ve been with Star Magic all my life and the fact that they’re bringing me with them now, it means so much to me. And when they told us the international fans wanted to see us and meet us, it really warms my heart. Because if they want to see us, I want to see them even more,” she said.
The 22-year-old Run To Me star feels so excited that she revealed that she had already started packing for the trip which is still more than a month away. “Actually naka-empake na ako. Promise. I’m not kidding. I’m packed na. that’s not how I am as a person. Kasi you never stop naman hanggang papaalis ka, nagdadagdag ka ng gamit. Ayun, I’m ready to go (laughs),” she admitted.
Also joining the US tour is Alexa’s love team partner KD Estrada who she says will definitely bring the ‘kilig’ with onstage. “We hope to bring even more. Of course it’s not just us we also have DonBelle with us. If time allows, we would love to (go around), but if not just to be safe din, maybe we can make plans or content kahit nasa hotel lang kami as a vlogger (laughs). I think ang magiging most memorable part is being able to perform together for the first time in the US in front of our international fans. That’s what I’m most excited about because for me ‘yan ‘yung best feeling para sa akin – ’yung makakapag-perform ako sa harap ng maraming tao. I’m ecstatic.”
With several projects lined up that she can’t reveal details about just yet, Alexa shared that fans can definitely expect more music from her in the coming year. “Hopefully more music since we can’t talk about upcoming shows but thankfully there will be a follow up. But what we can share is we’ll be making more music for sure,” she added.
