JUST A THOUGHT: “There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.” – Bryant H. McGill

SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE: After playing it bold, bad and violent in the current series “Wildflower,” Maja Salvador is bracing for a concert tour next.

The singer-actress kicks off her “Maja On Stage” tour this Sunday, Feb. 4 at EIC Convention Center in Cebu City. The pilot show will be followed by stops in Singapore on Feb. 18 and at the KIA Theater in Cubao on Mar. 23.

Maja has taken a temporary leave from ASAP to concentrate on the last taping days of “Wildflower” and rehearsing for her series of shows.

At the “Wildflower” thanksgiving luncheon, the drama actress said she has been finding it difficult to sing after a night of taping. Her scenes as Lily Cruz/ Ivy Aguas in the show require so much physical activity that includes a lot of screaming.

GOODBYE TO ‘WILDFLOWER’: Maja isn’t thankful, however, that “Wildflower” is bidding farewell on Feb. 9. She said that after almost a year of being together, she has come to love each and every cast member. This early, she is suffering from separation anxiety, a sentiment shared by costars Aiko Melendez, Tirso Cruz III, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Joseph Marco, and the rest of the cast.

At one point, Maja said it had been easier for her to move on following a heartbreak, a break-up with a boyfriend, than facing the fear of breaking away from her “Wildflower” family.

“Wildflower” premiered with surprisingly high ratings in February 2017. After almost a year on air, it has clinched a number of firsts.

The most remarkable among these is the all-time high national TV rating of 35.2 per cent the show recorded on Oct. 10, 2017. It is said to be the highest rating earned by a program in the 6 p.m. timeslot in recent years. The show also ranked 13th on Kantar Media’s list of most watched programs in 2017.
