A deeper, dapper Daniel Padilla gears up for his upcoming virtual concert, “Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience,” to highlight his evolution as a performer throughout the years.
The homegrown ABS-CBN artist admitted he initially didn’t want to do the digital concert.
“But eventually I said yes because I realized, this isn’t for me, this is for the people I’d be working with and my supporters. I didn’t want to be selfish like that.”
The price of P499 was also because of Daniel’s request that they keep the amount low, fully knowing that money is hard to come by these days.
“Napag usapan namin ganun ang gawin. Syempre ayaw naman nating maging manhid sa mga nangyayari ngayon,” he said, “Gusto nga naming magbigay ng saya. Kung pwede lang gawing libre, pero syempre mayroon kaming dapat bayaran, syempre ‘yung production at yung mga kanta kailangang bayaran. So ‘yung binigay naming presyo yan na ang pinaka minimum para mabayaran ang kailangan bayaran. Kumbaga wala ng sobra. Ako ho wala akong kita, gusto ko lang ho itong gawin para sa mga tao.”
Daniel’s ladylove, Kathryn Bernardo, will also be present at the venue.
“Nandito siya sa concert day,” he said, “Nandito siya para manood ng live.
“Exemption siya. Kailangan ko rin kasi ako’y ninenerbyos. Kapag nandiyan siya sumusuporta, mas kumportable at feeling ko kayang kaya.”
However, fans will have to wait and see to know if the lovebirds will perform a number together.
“I cannot promise anything, pero si Kathryn pag time ko ng kumanta, gusto nya fan lang siya, nanunod sa akin,” said Daniel.
Daniel will perform with the band Jose Carlito, led by his brother, JC Padilla.
Produced by ABS-CBN’s Star Events and Daniel’s own production house, Johnny Moonlight, “Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience” is exclusively happening on KTX.ph this October 11.
