MANILA -- Veteran singer and concert performer Gary Valenciano took to his official Twitter account to thank all those who greeted him as he turned 50 on Wednesday.

Angeli recalled meeting Valenciano when he was only 18 years old. "He is 50 now. I look forward to eternity with Jesus. Life is much too short on earth. Why accumulate?" she tweeted.
