The musical show “Mula sa Buwan” ended its last night with a surprise as its lead star, Myke Salomon, proposed to Gab Pangilinan.
Shortly after their closing performance on Sunday, September 18, a cast member handed a letter addressed to Gab from Myke.
“Sa ika-18 ng Setyembre 2022, may matinding kahilingan ang buwan na imbitahin ka, Gabriela upang makausap si Myke. Meroon daw siyang sasabihing mahalagang bagay pero sige ilalahad ko na rin dito para itago mo itong liham na ito,” Gab read the letter in front of the audience.
“Maari ba kitang imbitahing maging ligaya, pangarap, at pagasa? Dahil ikaw ay ang aking awit na kailan man ay ‘di lilipas — kahapon, ngayon, hanggang sa ilang milyong bukas,” Myke wrote.
“Oo, pagiisang dibdib dahil nais kong maging iyong kawal, katuwang, kakampi sa habang buhay. Nagmamahal, Myke,” the letter reads.
After the theater actress read the letter, Myke kneeled and asked for her hand, drawing cheers from the crowd.
The proposal ended with a shower of confetti from the musical’s cast and crew.
After learning the announcement, the couple’s fans and friends were over the moon and expressed their congratulatory message.
“Congratulations you two, @gabpangilinan and @DJMYKEsalomon this is very happy newsssss! Love you both!” actress Agot Isidro said.
