After making waves in his first international film role in Yam Laranas’ “The Road,” Alden Richards returns to the U.S. as part a concert promotional tour for PLDT and Smart dubbed the Freedom Concert also featuring Ogie Alcasig, Regine Velsaquez, Junalyn Viray, Allan K, Sheryn Regis, Giselle Sanchez, Jannelle So and his co-star Marian Rivera of “Carmela.”
This pinoy heartthrob explained that he’ll be performing songs from his new album and favorite songs he likes during the concert event.
“I chose songs from a variety of singers back in Manila. I’m going to sing a song from my album called “‘Akin Ko Na Lang.”’ It was an original song from a band called Itchy Worms.”
Alden Richards landed in Los Angeles, late Tuesday night to gear up for the concert tour. On his first day full day in Los Angeles, Alden stopped by Vlado Footwear trying out shoes to wear while performing during the LA stint of the concert.
While at the shoe company’s showroom, Richards mentioned his excitement to be back in the U.S.
He remembers the whirlwind excitement of walking the red carpet for the U.S. premiere of “The Road” in Hollywood but is more excited this time to explore Los Angeles.
From eating Umami burgers at The Grove and surprised at the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM, the young heartthrob hopes to bump into Jennifer Lawrence, Megan Fox, Johnny Depp and Christian Bale during his stay in LA. He’s been dying to meet Jennifer Lawrence since “The Hunger Games” first landed on movie screens a few years back. Alden would love to sit down and talk to Christian Bale about the acting craft.
Asked if he’d love to do a Hollywood movie, Richards says if God is good to him to give him one Hollywood movie, he could rest.
Definitely Alden cannot rest in the coming days as his rehearses for his the Freedom Concert in here in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Freedom Concert heads out also to San Diego, Las Vegas and Hawaii without Alden.
