MANILA, Philippines – Singer and actor Piolo Pascual was not able to contain his emotions during his concert, “Piolo meets the Maestro, Ryan Cayabyab,” at the PICC Plenary Hall on Monday.
During the special event, Pascual unexpectedly burst into tears when he went down the stage to perform a song for girlfriend KC Concepcion, who was watching the show.
The actress-television host was sitting beside the actor’s mother.
“Naiyak ako! Somebody who has been there who showed me the true meaning of love. Thank you Kristina,” he said.
When sought for an explanation after the concert, he said: "Hindi ko rin alam. Hindi ko naman inaasahan. I just wanted to say a few words just to thank her. Kung anuman ang sinabi [ko] it came from the heart kaya siguro medyo naging emotional ako.”
Pascual was also happy that his concert was a huge success. He said it was a dream come true for him to hold his own show at the PICC.
He also shared that for the first time he got a standing ovation from the audience. "Tapos first time na may nag-more so it's really momentous. Na-boost ang morale ko."
Yeng Constantino and Sitti Navarro were his special guests.
After his Valentine gig, Pascual will do shows abroad.
"Sa States muna tayo. I'm doing 6-city tour that's in Connecticut, Florida, Chicago, Toronto, Virginia and isa pa, mga ganoon. I will be in the States for shows naman, so doon ko dadalhin ‘yong concert naman," he said.
