“Hindi ko kayang makita na mahina ‘yong mga taong mahal ko, lalo na kayo, ‘yong nagbibigay ng inspirasyon sa akin,” said Maja Salvador, one of three judges in the reality competition series “World of Dance Philippines” during a studio press visit on Jan. 20.
Hosted by Luis Manzano and Pia Wurtzbach (2015 Miss Universe), “World of Dance Philippines” also features as judges Billy Crawford, and, Mr. Pure Energy, Gary Valenciano.
While teary eyed, Maja recalled the time when Gary experienced what he called “a health challenge” in 2018, wherein he had a heart operation. The latter also discovered that cancer was growing in one of his kidneys.
