This week on 'We Rise Together': Kira Balinger, Grae Fernandez, Richard Juan + BGYO!

A talented boy group, a rising love team, and an amazing host were the special guests for this week's episodes of "We Rise Together"!

The five-member boy group BGYO graced the March 8 episode as they talked about their humble beginnings and debut song "The Light."

According to one of their members Mikki, their journey hadn't been easy and there were times that they thought of quitting.

"There was a time when we wanted to give up po," Mikki admitted. "But whenever one of us is down, we always lift each other up."

Gelo also said that they really worked hard to make sure that they deserve where they are now.

"Kaming tatlo nina Mikki, Nate, saka ako hindi kami nag-start as a singer. Noong pumasok kami dito, na-inspire kami nang sobra and gusto naming ipagpatuloy 'yung music sa buhay namin," he shared.

"Tulad nina JL at Aki, nagsikap naman silla sa pagsasayaw naman para maka-adjust sa dancers sa grupo," he added.

For the March 10 episode, Kira Balinger and Grae Fernandez joined the show as they shared what they'll miss from the "Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin" set, now that the show is nearing its finale.

"Ako mami-miss ko 'yung maging baby. Laging bine-baby nina mom and dad. Yung in between takes, konting kuwentuhan. Tapos especially after work, magba-bonding kami and everything. We won't get that type of bonding again. Iba talaga kapag lock-in," Kira shared.

Meanwhile, Grae said that everyone from the cast now has a special place in his heart.

"Every single member of the cast nakilala ko, nakausap ko. May time na nag-spend kami ng time together so parang lahat talaga nakilala ko, eh. So every single one may special memories ako with them," he said.

A grateful Richard Juan joined the March 12 episode and he opened up about his hosting stint for "Pinoy Big Brother: Connect."

Although Richard has had a number of hosting gigs in the past, the actor-host said that his stint on "PBB" it's his "full circle story."

"It's such an honor to be a host of 'PBB'. I didn't expect nga na Kuya wanted me to be a host especially this season. It's such a nice full circle story in a way kasi 'PBB' was where my entertainment journey started. It's such a beautiful story for me. I started here, I experienced the world, and then came back home," he shared.
