Christian was emotional in expressing his gratitude to GMA-7 for continuing to believe in his many talents throughout the years, “Everything that we’ve been through together from the beginning and up to now, just got me so emotional again. I’m just very thankful, through thick and thin, we have been together, we have done different shows and travelled the world together, having meals together, that’s such a big thing for me as well. The friendship among everyone, artists, our bosses, working together for a common goal.”

Meanwhile, Rasonable entices his fans with his upcoming projects under the Network.

“Siyempre andiyan ‘yung All-Out Sundays, tuluy-tuloy ‘yan and we’re already preparing for The Clash, the auditions are on-going. Palagi ‘yan may something new na dinadala sa every season. Of course, as we said, he has another side of him, acting, basta mabigyan ng oras at maayos natin ang schedule, sana makita rin natin siya sa isang soap opera, mini series, or anthology. Also, the on ground and online concerts that will come quite soon dahil the world is opening up, we hope to be able to go out of the Philippines and continue to entertain our Kapuso abroad.”

It’s a busy year ahead for Christian as he is currently a mainstay performer in the hit weekend variety program ‘All-Out Sundays’ and gearing up for the Season 4 of the all-original musical competition ‘The Clash.’ 

He is also set to top bill the upcoming online musical ‘Still: A Viu Original musical narrative series’ alongside Asia’s Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose.
