This Week on 'We Rise Together': John Arcilla, Morissette + Robi Domingo!

An award-winning actor, a multi-talented singer, and an in-demand host were the guests for this week’s “We Rise Together”!

In 2020, singer Morissette Amon released her song “Love You Still,” the first single she wrote in her entire 10 years in the industry.

The “The Voice” alum then shared on the September 13 episode why it took her years to finally write her own song, which she admitted had been a dream of hers for the longest time.

“Matagal ko na kasi siyang gustong gawin, na makapagsulat ng mga song on my own. Pero lagi ko siyang dine-deny kasi meron akong tendency na marami akong naiisip na topics pero hindi ko siya maisulat kasi pinag-iisipan ko pa siya. Like anong concept nung song, parang fini-filter ko agad kasi takot akong ma-judge ng mga tao sa kung ano'ng iniisip ko,” she shared.

And since live shows were halted in the country due to COVID-19, Morissette made use of her time in quarantine to finally pursue her life-long dream.

“Ngayon, especially with the pandemic, walang live shows, walang concert, it affected me especially for the first couple of months. Pero noong panahon lang din na yun, na-realize ko ulit yung goal ko na baka ito na yung time na pwede na akong magsulat.”

“With the help of Dave (Lamar, her fiance), nae-enhance naman yung kanta with our producers. I'm just super happy na nangyari na rin. It came na lang din in the right time for me, 10 years in the industry, I'm stepping into another decade in my career hopefully na may songwriting na and producing also,” she said.

Fresh from his win at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, “On The Job: The Missing 8” star John Arcilla joined the September 15 episode to share more about his latest achievement.

According to John, it was a full circle moment for him as an actor not just because it's a win for him, but because it is a victory for all the Filipinos.

“This victory is for everyone, not just for me. Kasi noong nasabi sa'kin 'yun, alam mo 'yung pakiramdam na gusto kong lumundag lagpas langit. Alam mo 'yung feeling na, oh man! Sabi nga nila sa'kin, 'John, are you on cloud 9?' Sabi ko, 'No, if there's cloud 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19... andun ako sa cloud na 'yun.’,” he exclaimed.

John also believes this big win would open more opportunities for Filipino actors to be recognized in the industry.

“One of the very best reasons is because of you. Alam kong nagce-celebrate kayo. Lalo ngayon nalaman ko even sa kabataan, sa younger generation, this will make you proud. Sobrang lalong nakakataba ng puso kasi ibig sabihin, this will open doors to all of us, hindi lang sa'kin. Ito ay panalo nating lahat,” he said.

“Game KNB?" has finally returned for its fourth season and Robi Domingo shared more of what the viewers can enjoy when he appeared in the September 17 episode of the show.

For this season, Robi said that it is more interactive compared to the previous ones, and that they have finally incorporated what the viewers have been clamoring before.

"'Yung Season 4, it's something close to our hearts kasi mas may interaction na. Before, I would ask the questions and then may lalabas na choices. Ngayon, may portion kung saan pwede ka umakyat and makilaro live na live during the program. So 'yung akyat na hinahanap sa kumu, in-incorporate na dito sa Season 4 and kung sino man naglalaro ng live, pwede ka nang maging parte ng program agad-agad," he shared.
