Jake Zyrus will be holding his first concert since casting out his former identity as Charice. 

The gig will be held at Music Museum on October 6, and will feature songs from his upcoming album, including the lead single "Hiling," a cover of the Jay-R Siaboc song of the same name. 

Speaking with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe on Saturday, Jake Zyrus said: "Finally, sobrang excited ako sa mga music na ishi-share ko sa kanila, sa performance na alam ko na magiging kumportable ako."

He added that his concert will be "perfect" for those who want to "celebrate themselves," and that the songs he will perform will represent the dreams he has for himself after coming out. 

It has been a month since Jake Zyrus changed the username of his social media accounts to fit his new identity as a transgender male.
