This Week on 'We Rise Together': Zanjoe Marudo, Jed Madela, Ralph Malibunas + more!

Two powerful OPM singers, an up-and-coming artist, and a long-time Kapamilya actor joined this week's "We Rise Together"!

Last September 27, Jed Madela and Ana Ramsey joined the show to share about the online gig “Gold School: The Best of OPM,” which kicked off in August.

The new show is part of ABS-CBN Music’s fresh offerings exclusively for YouTube that aims to bring to life old school music through some of the best OPM singers today, including Jed and Ana.

For the former MOR DJ, it was a dream come true to perform her own rendition of some of the greatest Kapamilya teleserye theme songs.

"Noong binigay sa'kin itong songs na ito, sobrang na-happy ako kasi isa ito sa mga pangarap ko rin, makakanta ng mga theme song. 'Yung tipong nanonood ka ng teleserye tapos biglang papasok yung kanta mo habang nagtatagpo...ang sarap sa feeling. Hindi ko man siya sariling song, nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon na makakanta at mabigyan ng interpretation yung mga Kapamilya teleserye theme songs natin," she shared.

Meanwhile, Jed gave life to Sampaguita and Cinderella's songs. He shared, "I did a couple of songs from iconic natin na performers na si Sampaguita at si Cinderella. Ibang-iba siya from the usual na ginagawa kong kanta," he said.

This Saturday, October 2, Jeremiah Lisbo will be starring in “Maalaala Mo Kaya” based on the life of “Pinoy Big Brother” alum Ralph Malibunas.

The Rise artist then opened up on the September 29 episode about his preparations for his first lead role in the drama anthology series, and credited Ralph himself for helping him throughout the process.

"Grabe 'yung paghahanda ko talaga dito. At nagpapasalamat ako sa mga taong tumulong sa'kin sa proseso para maghanda dahil first lead role ko 'to sa 'MMK.'"

"Pero gusto ko ibigay 'yung spotlight talaga kay Ralph, eh, kasi nagbigay siya ng time sa'kin, sobrang bukas niya sa'kin. Wala siyang walls; kung paano niya kinwento sa staff ng 'MMK,' feeling ko ganun din niya kinwento sa'kin. Tapos habang nagkukwento siya, inoobserbahan ko 'yung mga kilos niya," he shared.

Zanjoe Marudo is celebrating his 15th showbiz anniversary this year! And while we've seen him accomplish many things, one of his greatest achievements would be his growth as an actor since his "Pinoy Big Brother" days.

He admitted, "Mas tumapang siguro ako dahil dati mas takot akong mag-try ng mga bagay na hindi ako sigurado kung kaya ko. 'Yung wall ko andun na, ang taas-taas, tanggi ako nang tanggi sa mga bagay, sa mga opportunities kasi hindi ako confident."

"Pero noong tumagal, unti-unti kong nabuild 'yung confidence ko sa mga experiences. Natanggal 'yung pagiging conscious ko, 'yung pagiging mahiyain ko," he added.
