It should be noted that this is Gary V’s first series of solo, full-length concerts since Live At 25 several years ago. Through his production outfit, GV Production and his management company, Manila Genesis Entertainment and Management, Inc., Gary will be working with multi-talented writer, actor and director Freddie Santos for the concert series’ script and direction. Gary and Freddie have collaborated together on the song “Could You Be Messiah” (lyrics by Freddie Santos, and music by Gary himself) as well as several other concerts that Gary has done in the past and Soul In Motion is a reunion of sorts for the 2 artists. Gary is one of the most successful performers to step on the Music Museum stage as many of his over 40 concerts there were sold-out and a couple of projects directed by Freddie himself.
Three groups will become beneficiaries of the concert series namely Compassion 2 One, an international advocacy group dedicated to creating heightened awareness for the plight of the victims of human trafficking both here in the Philippines and abroad; the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), of which Gary has been a long time Ambassador of Goodwill and The Shining Light Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to poor but deserving children as well as medical aid to indigent families.
Because the groups involved in the concert series all champion the rights of children and also help focus attention on the suffering of victims of human trafficking (of which most are children), Soul In Motion is Gary’s battle cry for everyone to stand up and fight for all children and all those who have been oppressed by the hideous acts of a perverted generation. The concert will be another package of fun and relevance for all the Gary V fans aching to see him perform again.
Gary V: Soul In Motion is a pop fun concert with an inspirational twist. And joining Gary in this exciting project is former musical wonder kid and now R&B performer extraordinaire Duncan Ramos together with some surprise guests. Watch out for it!!
