Gary Valenciano has admitted that he is having struggles with his voice and throat as he prayed for his healing ahead of his musical theater comeback.

The singer, dubbed “Mr. Pure Energy,” opened up about his condition on his Twitter page yesterday, July 7. This comes days before the opening of the musical “Joseph the Dreamer,” in which he will perform for the first time in over two decades.


“Lord, you know I’ve been struggling with my voice and throat for weeks now. ‘Joseph The Dreamer’ is in 8 days. I need your help Lord,” he said. “Thank You for your faithfulness. I know You will never put me to shame. [Please] come, heal, and restore my voice. In your name Jesus I pray, Amen.”

“Joseph the Dreamer” marks the singer’s return to musical theater in 23 years. After playing the titular role in 1999, he will now take on the role of Joseph’s father Jacob in this year’s production.

Joseph will be played by singer Sam Concepcion, while Gary’s son Paolo Valenciano will serve as director. The musical will run from July 15 to 31 at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater in Taguig.

Meanwhile, Gary currently appears as a judge in the reality talent competition “Idol Philippines,” alongside fellow musicians Regine Velasquez, Moira Dela Torre and Chito Miranda.  /ra
