Diabetic Mr. Pure Energy

He is Gary Valenciano. My favorite local artist. I live in the Philippines. He is a great singer, dances well, can do Michael Jackson's moves, a total performer. He is diabetic, not just a simple diabetes but I think it's like on the 3rd level(not sure of the leveling in diabetes), level that someone's eyesight should be affected, lots of complications occur. But still he is active and do concerts and shows, his doctor cannot even explain why he has such energy. He is a Christian so he, himself explains that it is because of God's grace. He loves God and gives all the credit to our Creator. Most of the people said that he is insulin dependent but he is more of God dependent, prayer is his most important medicine. I love him, he touches every people that watched his concert last year in CCF Mandaluyong. He uses his God-given talent to spread the Word. Do you know him or someone like him? Feel free to share!

Yeah, a wholesome image. Nice to know that someone here also like gary v.! I haven't seen the movie but I'll check it out. I liked him even before but just last year I really became a fan. Coz I really admire his relationship with Jesus and how he depends on Him. I didn't know his real health situation until I watched his concert last year and met his brother-in-law and family. Now he's the only artist I really really really like, love actually, hehe!
