MANILA, Philippines – With his 10th anniversary in the music industry fast approaching, singer Jed Madela said it is his dream to perform with Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez.
“I’ve never performed with Regine as a guest sa concert ko. I’ve had Martin (Nievera), Gary (Valenciano), Ogie (Alcasid) and Lea (Salonga). I’ve performed with all of them already. Si Regine hindi pa so hopefully sa susunod na anniversary concert ko sana kasama siya,” he said.
Another dream is to have a concert at the newly opened SM Mall of Asia Arena.
“Isa sa mga dreams ko ang magkaroon ng concert dito sa Arena... Hopefully may mga sponsors at saka producers na kakayanin na ito ang venue ko. I’d love to perform here,“ he said.
In the meantime, Madela will get to perform at the SM MOA Arena this coming Saturday along with other OPM artists.
The singer said he is looking forward to singing along with other Filipino performers including Alcasid, Velasquez, Valenciano, Nievera, Salonga, Basil Valdez, Freddie Aguilar, Jose Mari Chan, Zsa Zsa Padilla, , Christian Bautista, Erik Santos, Juris, Bamboo, Arnel Pineda and Piolo Pascual among others.
“Siyempre happy ako kasi sa title pa lang 'Icons at The Arena.' Sabi ko nga sa sarili ko anong ginagawa ko dito, di ba? It’s such an honor,” he said.
Apart from his upcoming concert, Madela will also be performing for one his supported charities later this year.
“We’re planning for another concert in November and wala pang details but definitely it’s going to be for the benefit of children. May orphanage kami na tinutulungan so towards the end of the year were planning a big concert for that,” he said.
