Last week, real-life couple Maris Racal and Rico Blanco shared the ASAP Natin ‘To stage for the first time, as Rico performed the Pinoy Big Brother theme song, "Pinoy Ako," while Maris and other former PBB housemates did a dance number.
On September 12, the couple graced our TV screens once more as they performed their 2019 collaboration, "Abot Langit," in the September 12 airing of ASAP Natin 'To.
Following the performance, Rico and Maris were interviewed by Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez. Regine asked what was special about performing together, and Maris answered, "Aside from this is our first time together here on ASAP, masaya because I get to sing with Rico."
With the show's hashtag, #iheartASAP, Ogie and Regine asked the couple why they "heart" each other. Rico took the lead and said, "Unahan ko na, heart ko siya kasi ano e, she's an amazing person."
Maris, who's set to celebrate her birthday on September 22, was asked who she wanted to thank. The singer and actress said, "Pasalamatan ko yung parents ko for always supporting me. My fans, Mariestellers, thank you. My sisters, and of course, Rico, thank you for always supporting me and loving me."
Rico was also asked to give an advanced birthday message for Maris. "Madami kang gustong gawin, narinig ko yung bagong kanta niya, marami pa siyang ideas," Rico shared. "Sana huwag ka ma-frustrate na challenging yung times ngayon, continue enjoying what you do, because I think if you enjoy the process, you can dream whatever dream."
