“Hindi ako bibitaw hanggang pinagtitiwalaan ako ng ating mga boss. Dahil nandun sila sa likod ko, lumalakas ng loob ko,” Vhong shares. “Of course, hindi lang sa ating mga boss. Of course, kay God, kaya patuloy ako good job, at patuloy na magpapasaya para sa ating madlang people.”

“Mag-iisang dekada na ako sa ABS. 9 years. 2013 nung unang apak ko sa ABS-CBN. Ang masasabi ko lang, very fulfilling siya. Why? Kasi naging actor ako. ’Yun talaga ’yung pinakamasarap sa pakiramdam ng artist, ’yung matawag siya na isang actor. At sa sobrang daming challenges na binigay sa’kin ng ABS-CBN, natawag ko na ang sarili ko na versatile actor,” JC says.
Finally, Ogie has been serenading the country for decades. With his move to ABS-CBN, his regular gigs on It's Showtime and ASAP Natin 'To followed. He also served as a judge on singing and impersonation competition Your Face Sounds Familiar. His wife, Regine Velasquez, also recently renewed her contract with the Kapamilya network.
“I was given a chance again to do what I love to do… and that is to sing every Sunday, to perform every Sunday, and to make people laugh every single day. That gives me so much joy… at natutuwa ako na ang dami-daming Kapamilya pa rin, at parami nang parami pa rin,” Ogie shares.
