MANILA, Philippines – Singer and actress KC Concepcion said she feels proud to have represented the Philippines when she performed at the opening ceremony of the 26th Southeast Asian Games in Indonesia last week.
"These are things na hindi natin ine-expect," Concepcion said on "The Buzz," where she is one of the hosts.
"It's so nice because talagang may mga balita dito sa Pilipinas, sa bansa natin, na hindi naman talagang nakakapagpabuti sa loob ng mga Pilipino. In our own little way, gusto mong mapa-smile ang ibang mga Pinoy hindi lang dito kahit abroad.
"I represented the Philippines with pride. I was so proud to be Pinoy. Ipinagmamalaki ko ang Pilipinas in every way I could."
Last Friday, Concepcion sang the theme song of the SEA Games, "Together We Will Shine," with Indonesian actress-signer Agnes Mojica and Malaysian singer Jacklyn Victor. They were introduced as Southeast Asian divas during the opening ceremony.
Before heading to Indonesia for the SEA Games, Concepcion held a concert in New York with boyfriend Piolo Pascual.
She also attended the birthday and charity event of former American President Bill Clinton at the Hollywood Bowl.
