AARP has announced it is presenting Gary Valenciano, 11-time winner of the prestigious and much coveted Philippine entertainment industry Awit Award for “Best Male Performer,” in celebration of a milestone achievement – his 30th Anniversary as a world entertainer, in a limited engagement live concert at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.


In its announcement, AARP adds that this one night only concert is extra special in that it celebrates with Gary his recent turning 50 years old – making him one of the last baby boomers of his generation. 

Known to fans worldwide as “Mr. Pure Energy,” Gary, as he is most affectionately referred to by friends and fans alike, has in the last three decades released 26 albums of songs that were received and counted by the public and his fans as most popular in their time, with some extending their popularity to the present day. 

They include such favorite and familiar melodies as “’Di Bale Na Lang” (“Never Mind”), “Eto Na Naman” (“Here We Go Again”), “Sana Maulit Muli” (“I Wish It Could Happen Again”), “Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos?” (“Is God Sleeping”), “Gaya ng Dati” (“Just Like Before”), “Pasko Na, Sinta Ko” (“It’s Christmas,  My Love”), and “Narito” (“Here”).

The Gary V. concert will have as special guests Gary’s son Gabriel Valenciano and AKA Jam.  The Musical Director is Ramon Faustino and the Executive Producers are Johnny Rustia and Alaina Serrano.

Knowing the craving of Filipinos, Filipino-Americans and their friends from throughout the East Coast of the United States for live Filipino entertainment, they are expected to flock to this one night only live concert of Gary V.

After all, Filipinos run a very close second to the Chinese in total population in the U.S. and is ranked second only to South Asians (Indians) in annual household income.  Reason enough for top Filipino performers enjoying tremendous popularity what with live performances being staged throughout the year in Atlantic City, New York and other venues throughout the Atlantic corridor, in the eastern seaboard where concentrations of Filipinos are found from  Connecticut to Virginia Beach.

At this writing, aside from presenting sponsor AARP, other sponsors of the Gary V. Concert are GOLDMED and MATCHFUND.NET.   AARP has also partnered for the live concert with Filipino-American community organizations such as the Philippine Independence Day Council, Inc. (PIDCI), the Filipino Association in Washington DC, Filipino Executive Council of Philadelphia, FACAA of Greater Philadelphia, and PCSNJ of South Jersey; and with ABS-CBN Foundation for media.
