Gary Valenciano and daughter Kiana flew to Malaysia to perform live at the 23rd Asian Television Awards (ATA) mounted at the Borneo Convention Center in Kuching, Malaysia on Jan. 12 and 13.
ATA is Asian television industry’s biggest and most highly-anticipated event as it honors excellence in television programming as well as performance and production.
With Filipino broadcast journalist Mark Zambrano as one of the main hosts of the two-day event, Gary and Kiana were the official representatives of the Philippines as they were part of the amazing line-up of Asian superstars who performed onstage. Some of the Asian superstars that ATA assembled this year were Malaysian pop star Winnie K, Indonesian pop star Via Valen, South Korean boy group SF9, Malaysian actor Alvin Chong, Singaporean singer Gina Tan, and Vietnamese singer Trong Hieu, among many others.
While Mr. Pure Energy performed in the actual awards night of ATA, Kiana on the other hand, was one of the featured artists who performed in the event’s media launch on Jan. 11 and at the event’s big closing concert on Jan. 13.
Incidentally, the Philippine franchise of the reality dance competition World Of Dance (WOD) also aired on ABS-CBN on Jan. 12 and Gary V is one of the celebrity judges on the show’s panel alongside Billy Crawford and Maja Salvador with hosts Luis Manzano and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.
Meanwhile, Kiana has written and produced original songs such as “Circles,” “Does She Know,” “Misfits,” and her latest single “See Me” – all of which are all viral hits with millions of streams on Spotify.
On his Instagram post, Gary said “Here I go Lord. It’s been a while since I’ve last represented the Philippines in a musical event such as the 23rd Asian Television Awards. What an honor it’s going to be for me and Kiana.”
It should be noted that his live appearance at ATA as well as WOD are the perfect opening salvos for Gary this 2019 right after the successful launch of his advocacy Awit At Laroand the 21-leg series of shows that he did in Ayala Malls, especially after his successful open heart surgery and his miraculous victory against kidney cancer.
