“Mr. Pure Energy” Gary Valenciano has a lot to be thankful for this year, as 2014 marks several milestones in his career and personal life.

This year, the ultimate performer is celebrating his 30th year in the music industry. He will also be turning 50 years old this year.

“I not only love what I do, but I can still do what I love,” Valenciano said about his career.

Gary also released a new inspirational album, “With You”.

The title single “With You” is a song he wrote for his son, Paolo’s wedding last year. It was made more special when his daughter, Kiana, agreed to sing the song with him.

He will be celebrating his third decade in the music industry with a concert, “Arise,” on April 11 and 12.

Gary will perform with Sam Concepcion, Rico Blanco and Sarah Geronimo, as well as his children Kiana and Gabriel.

The concert will be directed by his other son, Paolo.

He was also chosen as The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) ambassador for its 20th anniversary.

As part of the celebration, Gary will have concerts in different cities all over the world, such as Hong Kong, Ontario, London and San Francisco. (MNS)
