Why Did Kathryn Bernardo Cry During Her Renewal of Contract with ABS-CBN

Asia's Superstar Kathryn Bernardo remains a solid Kapamilya as she renewed her contract with ABS-CBN, her home network for 20 years in showbiz, on Friday (February 2).

During her grand contract signing hosted by Dimples Romana, a teary-eyed Kathryn expressed her gratitude and love for ABS-CBN.

I remember in 2020, I made a promise, sinabi ko sa ABS-CBN na ‘di kita iiwan at nandito lang ako hanggang makabangon ka ulit. And today, here I am fulfilling that promise. Ang daming nangyari sa ABS-CBN but mahal ko, eh. Mahal ko sobra ‘yung kumpanya and together we will rise despite all the challenges. We’ll be stronger and even better,” she expressed.

Addressing the ABS-CBN executives, she remarked, “I trust you more than anybody when it comes to work. ABS-CBN is the perfect home for growth. Thank you for supporting my decisions and everything that I do.

Carlo Katigbak, ABS-CBN president and CEO, gave his heartfelt message for Kathryn.

You really are our superstar. You have an amazing talent on screen and it shows in the success in everything that you do but more than that, I have been witness to your most special trait – it's the kindness and the grace that you showed to the people around you,” he said.

ABS-CBN COO for Broadcast Cory Vidanes also turned emotional as she praised Kathryn's good character and work ethic.

You have been an inspiring icon because you've proven to be an excellent actress. You have remained very humble and true all these years and that's what makes you beautiful inside as much as it makes you beautiful on the outside,” she shared.

Meanwhile, Kathryn's family, colleagues, industry mentors, supporters, brand partners, and closest friends shared their touching messages for the Kapamilya star as she marked another career milestone.

ABS-CBN executives who were present at the contract signing were chairman Mark Lopez, president and CEO Carlo Katigbak, COO for Broadcast Cory Vidanes, Star Magic head and Entertainment Production head Laurenti Dyogi, Films head Kriz Gazmen, and CFO Rick Tan Jr. Also present were Kathryn’s managers Lulu Romero and Alan Real and her mother, Min Bernardo.

VILMARK Releases Emotional Song "INOWY (I’m Not Okay Without You)"

Singer-songwriter Vilmark releases his latest single, “INOWY (I’m Not Okay Without You),” under GMA Music. The soul-stirring track is a powerful ballad about dealing with loss and finding the strength to move forward.

A song that serves as a sequel to his previous song “Lisan,” INOWY is a deeply personal song for Vilmark, who wrote it as a way to cope with the death of his father in 2022. “This song is about sharing with people that it’s okay not to be okay. Because it’s a phase that you need to go through to move forward and start anew. Until you accept the reality that you’re not okay, you’ll keep masking your true feelings. I wrote this song from a place of pain, but I hope it can bring comfort and hope to others who are going through tough times. It’s okay not to be okay, but it’s important to remember that we are not alone,” shares Vilmark.

Vilmark’s earlier composition “Lisan” was also selected by Jennylyn Mercado for her latest GMA Prime series “Love. Die. Repeat.” with Xian Lim. Vilmark expressed his gratitude for the unexpected opportunity, “I was so excited. I watched Ms. Jennylyn sing the song on All-Out-Sundays. She told me that it was a beautiful song and was perfect for ‘Love. Die. Repeat.’

Despite working as a full-time engineer on a night shift, Vilmark continues to balance his professional life with his passion for music. The artist looks forward to the future, expressing the desire to release more singles, work towards a full album, and dreams of having his own concert. Vilmark’s dream collaboration is with Asia’s Limitless Star Julie Anne San Jose, and he hopes to write a duet with her.

INOWY is now available on digital platforms worldwide on January 26.

“Patintero” was composed by Julius James “Jumbo” De Belen and John Michael Conchada and produced by FlipMusic’s Bojam. It will be released under ABS-CBN’s Star Music label.
