I am glad to have met Rachelle Ann Go during her photo shoot for her upcoming send-off concert this February.
I am sharing my latest article published on ABS-CBNNews.com.
MANILA, Philippines – Singer-actress Rachelle Ann Go is mounting a one-night concert before flying off to London to play the role of Gigi in the restaging of the hit musical “Miss Saigon.”
Dubbed as “Miss Rachelle: The Send-off Concert,” the show will be held on February 22, 8 p.m., at the Meralco Theater.
The concert will also commemorate Go’s 10th anniversary in the entertainment industry.
In a recent interview with the singer during a photo shoot visit, she said the concert is her way of saying goodbye since she will be away for at least a year.
Go, 27, will be leaving in March and to start the two months of rehearsals for “Miss Saigon,” which is slated to open in May.
She admitted that she never thought of being cast as the hardened bar girl Gigi, originally played by Filipina actress Isay Alvarez, when she joined the Manila auditions for the musical last year.
“When I first received the e-mail informing me about my inclusion in the show and me being offered as Gigi, it was quite surreal,” she confessed. “I waited for like 10 months before the official announcement of the cast members was revealed.”
