MANILA - Toni Gonzaga is Ginny anew in the music video of a song written from the perspective of the “Starting Over Again” character.
The four-minute video of “Awit ni Ginny” shows Gonzaga in places where pivotal turns in the love story of Ginny and Marco (Piolo Pascual) took place in the blockbuster movie.
"Awit ni Ginny," which was composed by Gonzaga, features lyrics that reflect the character’s feelings toward Marco before they finally resolved to part ways for good.
The song is the second single from “Celestine” (her real name), Gonzaga’s seventh studio album since she entered showbiz in 1998.
Gonzaga is now dubbed “The Ultimate Multimedia Star” for being a successful recording artist, actress and TV host. “Starting Over Again,” which was released early this year, is currently the second highest-grossing Philippine film of all time.
In celebration of her 15th anniversary in showbiz, Gonzaga will hold a grand concert at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on October 3.

As of press time, confirmed guest peformers are her friend Vice Ganda, her sister Alex Gonzaga, and her leading man in the blockbuster film ‘Starting Over Again’, Piolo Pascual.
With Piolo, Toni shared that it was supposedly a surprise but later on revealed.
"Surprise ‘yon dapat e kaso na-reveal. May show siya sa SMX on that night kaya se-segue na lang siya sa concert ko since katabi lang naman," she said.
With Vice Ganda, the ‘Awit Ni Ginny’ composer said they are going to have a fun surprise that people should watch out for.
Meanwhile, with her sister Alex, she told that they will give what people want them to show.
"Eversince pumasok si Alex sa showbiz, parang palagi nang ine-expect na magkaroon kami ng rivalry. Hindi ko alam kung bakit sila nag-e-expect ng rivalry sa magkapatid. But anyway, in ‘Celestine’, ipapakita na namin yung gusto nila. Ipapakita na namin yung ‘rivalry’," said Toni.
'Celestine', which is “not a typical concert" as the concert director Paolo Valenciano promised, is taking place at the MOA (Mall of Asia) Arena.

MANILA - Toni Gonzaga is ready to become Mrs. Soriano.
The 30-year-old singer said that while her boyfriend of over 8 years, film director Paul Soriano, has yet to propose, she would readily agree to getting married when the time comes.
"Sabi ko, ngayon, kung darating ‘yong proposal, yayakapin ko ito ng buo at tatanggapin ko. Ngayon wala pa talaga. Akala ng iba oo, pero wala pa," Gonzaga said in an interview on "Tapatan ni Tunying" to be aired on Thursday.
Noting that her ideal age to get married is 30, Gonzaga said she is not discounting the possibility of getting married to Soriano before the year ends.
"I already turned 30, but the year is not yet over. Maybe at the end of 2014, who knows? I’m ready for the next chapter of my life," she said.
Soriano has similarly been vocal of his hopes to marry Gonzaga.
The 32-year-old producer, in an interview in June, said he plans to propose to Gonzaga “very soon,” once their respective schedules allow them to have a break. Soriano even hinted that he has already planned a honeymoon with the singer.
"I know there are a couple of things that she wants to do some more before we can really sit down and plan the rest of our lives," he said at the time. "But that’s definitely somewhere out there real soon."
In celebration of her 15 years in the business, Toni Gonzaga is set to have a concert entitled ‘Celestine’ on October 3 at SM Moa Arena.
“First love ko ang music. And because true love has a habit of coming back, kahit na ilang beses kong talikuran ang pag-awit, bumabalik at bumabalik,” Toni Gonzaga shared during the presscon of her upcoming concert yesterday at Jet 7 Bistro, Timog Ave., Quezon City.
She also said that she is excited because this is her first-ever concert that would showcase her own personality and musicality. “Marami akong challenges for Toni. She’s gonna be doing a lot of new stuff for this concert,” Paolo Valenciano, director of the concert, also said yesterday.
The said concert is produced by Ms. Pops Fernandez of DSL Productions.

MANILA - Forget heels or dressy outfits if you’re watching Toni Gonzaga’s grand concert at the Mall of Asia Arena next month.
The 30-year-old performer urged her fans to wear comfortable shoes and clothes to “Celestine” (her real name), which will be held on October 3 in celebration of her 15th anniversary in showbiz.
"We’re advising everyone to wear your most comfortable outfit and dancing shoes because it’s going to be an interactive concert," Gonzaga told reporters Thursday on the sidelines of a press conference for the show.
Gonzaga added: “You’re going to be involved sa mga production numbers na gagawin namin. It’s going to be a really big celebration and party, all throughout.”
While she is regularly seen performing songs from foreign pop stars on “ASAP,” Gonzaga said her concert will have none of Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, or Katy Perry’s recent hits.
"We’ll just really focus on my music, my musicality, sa album ko and my past albums. Maglalagay kami ng mga EDM, mashups, collaborations, basta para siyang isang masayang rave," she said.
Since she entered showbiz in 1998, Gonzaga has released seven studio albums. The latest, released in May this year, is also named “Celestine” and features two of her own compositions.
Gonzaga is now dubbed “The Ultimate Multimedia Star” for being a successful recording artist, actress, and TV host. Her latest movie, “Starting Over Again,” is currently the second highest-grossing Philippine film of all time.
"This is my biggest celebration ever, in my entire 15 years," Gonzaga said of her concert, which is under the direction of Paolo Valenciano and is co-produced by singer Pops Fernandez. "I’ve never celebrated this huge in my career. I’m just really excited and looking forward kasi marami talagang surprises and big production numbers na mangyayari."
The show will feature several guests, although Gonzaga could only announce the participation of her sister, “Pure Love” star Alex Gonzaga, and comedian Vice Ganda.
"One, ‘yung showdown namin ni Alex, since for the longest time palagi kaming binibigyan ng rivalry ng mga tao. Might as well ibigay na ang rivalry na hinahanap nila sa amin. May showdown!" she said.
Gonzaga has been juggling other ongoing projects with preparations for the concert. She currently co-hosts “The Buzz” and stars in the Saturday sitcome “Home Sweetie Home.” Gonzaga has also started work on the second season of “The Voice of the Philippines,” which she co-hosts with Luis Manzano.
"Medyo hectic, medyo busy, pero it’s all worth it naman kasi the show is coming together na," Gonzaga said, referring to her concert. "We’re just really proud of the concept we were able to come up with. Excited kaming i-present ‘yung [hinanda namin] sa mga mga manonood."
