This Week on 'We Rise Together': Ogie Alcasid, Catriona Gray + Sofia Andres!

A dedicated father, a first-time mom, and a beauty queen-turned-singer were the guests for this week's episodes of "We Rise Together".

For a post-Father's Day celebration, singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid joined the June 21 episode to share more about his life as a dad to his three children.

Asked what's the best part of being a father, he said, "I'm just so happy when they call me dad. It doesn't matter kung 'yung bunso ko, o 'yung dalawa kong dalaga. Literally 'pag narinig namin 'Tay,' or 'Dad' or 'Papa,' it's music. Dito kaagad (sa puso)...that's the best part."

Ogie also shared his realizations as a father now that two of his children are grown-ups and pursuing their own career paths.

"Kapag nasa edad niyo na ako, you'll realize na your role in life is just to guide your children. When you see them happy, when you see them excited, when you see them smiling, ang sarap sa puso. I'm sure 'yung mga parents niyo, 'yung daddies ninyo, kapag nakita 'yung successes ninyo, tuwang-tuwa 'yun," he said.

First-time mom and "La Vida Lena" star Sofia Andres joined the June 23 episode and happily talked about her mom life and how she’s currently balancing motherhood and show business.

And while her pregnancy forced her to take a break from showbiz, Sofia had no regrets choosing it rather than going after her career.

“Kumbaga kung meron mang blessing na dadating sa career ko, ito 'yung blessing ko forever. And I can't trade that with anything. Parang, ito 'yung angel ko, eh. Bakit kailangan kong mag-worry sa life ko diba. Parang siya yung makakasama ko forever,” she said.

We finally got the chance to see the uncut version of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray's guesting where she talked about her journey of recording her version of "Raise Your Flag" which was supposed to be released in 2020.

Now gaining so much traction from the netizens, people are wondering how Catriona got into singing given her beautiful voice.

"Ever since I was young, music has always been a common theme which is something I enjoy but I never really had the confidence to do. I just love it. It's just one of the things that makes me happy," she admitted.

"But I'm still learning as I go along. I honestly feel that I still have a lot to prove to be the musician I am. I've already conquered pageantry, and it required a lot of preparation, a lot of learning, mentorship, and I feel like I'm in the same position all over again in music," she added.
