This Week on 'We Rise Together': KDLex, Jessa Zaragoza, Dingdong Avanzado + Joshua Garcia!

A fast-rising love team, an amazing actor, and a multitalented couple were the guests for this week's "We Rise Together"!

There's no better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with the well-loved team up of KD Estrada and Alexa Ilacad, collectively known as KDLex by their legion of fans.

In the episode, the two had a good time reminiscing the magic that started between them, which KD recalled began as early as their first few weeks of stay inside Kuya's house.

"[It all began] when I got my guitar in the house and then I was just playing something and then she wrote lyrics over it. Sabi ko, 'Wow, that's nice.' And that's how the magic started," KD shared.

Meanwhile, Alexa shared her own POV of how things started to bloom between her and KD. According to her, there was something about the Squad Plus member that drew her to him.

"Since I'm a very nurturing person, napansin ko lang na in everything that I do, even work-wise, there's a specific chosen one. Something about that person draws me in, na I wanna take care of that person," Alexa said.

"Inside 'PBB', si KD 'yun," she continued. "Parang something was drawing me closer to him, na parang, I wanna take care of this person. Parang ito 'yung aalagaan ko, babantayan ko, tutulungan ko. I just felt too comfortable with KD."

Alexa also believes both their love for music was a huge factor with how they instantly connected.

"Siguro kasi music is how I communicate. Music is my therapy especially inside the house. Especially KD, he is the music to my lyrics, so we just jive so, so, so well. There's something special about the bond na hindi ko namamalayan na as each day passes by, napapalapit ako saka mas lumalalim connection ko with KD," she explained.

For this week's flashback episode, we are taking it back to Joshua Garcia's guesting in 2020 when he teased about their upcoming movie, the Philippine adaptation of the Korean film "Keys To The Heart."

Back then, Joshua expressed his excitement working with THE Charo Santos-Concio as well as Zaijian Jaranilla.

“Hindi ko pa siya nakakatrabaho [si Ma’am Charo] pero excited akong makatrabaho siya. Gusto ko makita 'yung kalalabasan ng mga eksena. Nai-imagine ko na," he gushed.

“Sana hindi ako maging sakit ng ulo sa set namin kasi nakakahiya naman kay Ma’am Charo. Sobrang excited lang ako. Pati si Zaijian, grabe. Dalawa silang magaling," he added.

Long-time couple Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado spread some love and good vibes in the February 18 episode. The two talked about their preparations for their upcoming "Revelation" concert tour with their daughter Jayda in the U.S.

According to the couple, Jayda was really ecstatic to be part of her parents' concert tour especially since performing is really her passion.

"Jayda's first love is actually performing on stage," Dingdong said. "Yes she's a singer-songwriter pero yung performing on stage...lumaki si Jayda, 7 months pa lang 'yan when we were touring, she was already with us. That's one thing 'no, she was never afraid of the crowd, of the people. Bata pa lang 'yan sobrang komportable na 'yan sa tao."
