Richard Poon to singers, actors: Collaborate, don’t compete

MANILA, Philippines – Richard Poon believes that singers and actors can collaborate instead of compete to excel in the music industry.

This is the reason why he is open to helping actors who want to crossover to the music scene.

“My manager taught us na they can fill Araneta faster as we can, so they have something you don’t,” explained Richard, pertaining to the lesson taught by his manager Erickson Raymundo in an interview on Tuesday.

"Instead of complaining, aralin mo kung anong mayro’n sila [actors] and what you can learn from it and maybe in collaboration you can feed on each other,” he said.

However, when it comes to giving acting a chance, Richard said he would rather not try such.

“I don’t plan to [do acting],” he said. “May isa lang siguro, ‘yong ‘Kimmy Dora’ kasi ‘yong boss ko ang producer. Cameo role lang naman, nasa eroplano kami and nag-serve ako ng drinks, attendant ako. Besides that no acting.”

Richard will have a concert with Richard Yap dubbed “Richard x Richard: The Chinito Crooners” which will happen on August 26 at The Theater in Solaire Casino and Resort.

Aside from a concert, they’re also collaborating in a love song-filled album.
