Tonight with Boy Abunda welcomes actor and singer Marlo Mortel to talk about his upcoming major concert, the controversy surrounding his tandem with Kapamilya talents Janella Salvador and Morissette, as well as his love for his dear mother who recently passed away.
On his previous interview with the King of Talk, Marlo didn’t fail to mention how much his mother meant to him, showing just how close he is with her. Last August, unfortunately, he and his family said goodbye to the light of their home. At the start of the program, Marlo narrates the heart-wrenching story of his mother’s last days and how she had bravely fought to stay longer and how the actor struggled to see her having a hard time at the hospital. He also tells Tito Boy the last message she ever gave to him before passing: “Thanks for everything.” Marlo also states that he had held onto the Lord for guidance and comfort, and that despite the tragic happenings, he’s able to pull through and slowly get back on his feet.
On talks of the controversies surrounding his on-screen partners, Marlo tells the story of how he had long been acquainted with his FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano co-star Sue Ramirez when Star Magic formed a Glee Club in 2010. He also shares that his Be Careful with My Heart co-star, Janella Salvador was also part of the group. On the controversy involving ElNella, Marlo admits that there is no bad blood among them as what other bashers are saying. Although he’s open to pairing up again with the actress, he never tried to get in between her team up with Elmo Magalona and expresses that they are all very good friends—noting that they even attended his mother’s wake.
On the other hand, when the subject of singer Morissette came up, Marlo clears that they’re just very good friends despite the rumors going around.
He then talks about his upcoming major concert, cleverly dubbed as ‘ImMORTELized', and explains that he will be reviving some hits from the 70s through 90s. He shares that singing and composing has always been his passion and that he’s very excited and grateful for the opportunity to showcase his talent in his upcoming concert event.
