At today’s scheduled press conference at GMA Network for upcoming prime time series Wish I May, a moment of silence and a special prayer was offered for the soul of late Master Showman German Moreno.
Part of the panel of artists present at the event was Prince Villanueva, a 17-year-old newbie co-managed by the network and Moreno. Villanueva happens to be the last talent discovery of the 82-year-old pillar of show business, who has been known to mentor young artists since the 1980s. Moreno is of course behind the highly successful That’s Entertainment, which became the springboard for most of today’s popular and accomplished stars, including Lea Salonga, Billy Crawford, and Ruffa Gutierrez to name a few, as well as Manila City Vice Mayor Isko Moreno.
Breaking down when asked how he felt about the passing of his manager, Villanueva, who was present at the time of Moreno’s death at St. Luke The Fort’s Critical Care Unit broke down as he expressed his thanks to the legendary showbiz personality who gave him a break in 2014 via the latter’s late night weekly show, Walang Tulugan with The Mastershowman.
Saying he will be forever grateful to showbiz one and only “Kuya Germs” for making his dreams come true, he vowed to give his best to his career and dedicated his first project for 2016 to his beloved manager.
