This Week on 'We Rise Together': Gary V, Mitoy + The Squad Plus' Nio, Danica, and Renshi!

Two talented musicians and budding artists were the guests for this week's episodes of "We Rise Together"!

Last June 7, three of The Squad Plus' members, Nio Tria, Danica Ontengco, and Renshi De Guzman, graced the episode to share their stories of being part of the well-loved extended Gold Squad.

While the three of them are relatively new in showbiz, they are very hopeful to make their own names in the industry. In the "To Be Honest" segment, Danica and Renshi were asked what they want to be known for as actors.

"I want to be known for my acting skills," Danica said. "As an artist, gusto ko po talagang mapakita ‘yung best ko and gusto ko rin po mapansin sa acting ko po talaga."

Agreeing with Danica, Renshi answered, "I want to be known for my acting skills din po kasi gusto ko maging character actor. Gusto ko pong tumagal kasi gusto ko ‘tong ginagawa ko and masaya po ako na nagpo-portray ako ng iba’t ibang character."

Meanwhile, the son of award-winning actress Cherry Pie Picache said he wants to step out of his mom's shadow and build himself on his own.

"I want to make a name for myself. Gusto kong makilala na masipag at matiyaga na aktor na seryoso sa trabaho niya and best of best sa lahat ng opportunity, kinakaya niya," he enthused.

“The Voice” Season 1 champion and “Momshies, Ang Soul Mo’y Akin” star Mitoy Yonting joined the June 9 episode to share his experience of being part of the comedy film starring Jolina Magdangal, Melai Cantiveros, and Karla Estrada.

In terms of working with director Easy Ferrer, Mitoy said that it was indeed easy to work with him on the set because of his trust in his actors.

“Nasa pangalan naman eh. Direk Easy — easy pakisamahan. Masyadong magaan, hindi mo mararamdaman ‘yung trabaho. Hindi ipaparamdam sa’yo na mahirap ‘yan, hindi. ‘Yung tiwala ramdam mo na agad ni Direk Easy,” he said.

“Sa Momshies naman, magkakakilala na kaya sanay na sa isa’t isa ‘pag nagkakaharap harap kaya mabilis na ‘yung galawan nila. Wala nang tantyahan. ‘Yun ang magandang nangyari,” he added.

The one and only Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano joined the June 11 episode as he talked more about his new single "Make Us Whole Again."

While most of his songs speak of hope and positivity, Gary said that he's very much aware of the trending music today all thanks to his children. According to him, they give him tips to learn what should and what shouldn't be done in events such as his concert.

"I'm very, very fortunate to have my son Paulo Valenciano who is the director of my events. I also have Gabriel and my daughter Kiana. So sila minsan ang nagbibigay ng tips na, 'Dad, baka 'di na kailangan gawin 'yan,' 'Dad, pakinggan mo 'yung style na ganito,' 'Dad, 'wag mong pakinggan 'yung lyrics ha'," he said.

However, Gary believes that there's no need for him to join the bandwagon when it comes to trending songs.

"But then you know also, sometimes, baka hindi ko naman kailangan sumabay sa tunog ngayon. Because it's not naman the tunog; it's the message that I try to put across. And that for me remains as isa sa pinakamalaking weapon ko pagdating sa pag-eencourage, sa pag-iinspire ng tao," he added.
