Miguel Tanfelix Birthday

Miguel Tanfelix Birthday

Miguel Tanfelix, who played the lead character of the recently concluded top-rating family drama series Niño, continues to inspire and bring joy to his supporters. Last September 18, the GMA Artist Center star celebrated his birthday in advance with persons with disabilities of Dr. Jose P. Rizal Elementary School in Dasmariñas, Cavite.

 

Loud cheers and applause welcomed Miguel, who brought along his Niño co-star and good friend Renz Valerio. The special event got even livelier with Tess Bomb as the host. Also present was Miguel’s family who came in full force.

 

Miguel made every moment count, making sure his fans enjoyed the afternoon celebration. The birthday celebrant presented a dance and song number which delighted the audience. He even joined the games while being in character as Niño.

 

The 16-year-old was a darling to his fans as he approached the kids, took selfies with them, and signed autographs.

 

The kids for their part surprised Miguel with a dance number and both Miguel and Renz joined their performance.

 

Just as Miguel was about to distribute snacks, he received a phone call from Bianca Umali that brought kilig to their fans because they heard the conversation of both tween stars.

 

“Hi, Miguel! Nami-miss ko na ‘yung araw-araw kitang nakakasama. I’ll see you very soon,” said Bianca. Miguel and Bianca’s loveteam in Niño endeared them to their fans. Both Bianca and Miguel could still be seen on Ismol Family and Sunday All Stars.

 

Before Bianca said goodbye to Miguel, she took time to greet and thank the supporters of their team-up. Miguel later admitted that he was touched with Bianca’s effort to call him despite the latter’s busy schedule.

 

Miguel also shared that he couldn’t be more grateful for the chance he’d been given to bond with some of his fans. According to the StarStruck Kids alum, he personally picked to celebrate his birthday with the special kids of Dr. Jose P. Rizal Elementary School. It was made possible with the help of GMA Artist Center, his family, and sponsors.

 

Dahil po sa ginampanan kong role ni Niño, naintindihan ko ‘yung kalagayan nila, na kailangan nila ng atensyon, na ‘yung treatment sa kanila dapat parang normal na tao din kasi mayroon din silangfeelings na pwedeng masaktan,” shared Miguel.

 

The school administrators expressed their gratitude for having been chosen by Miguel. According to them, the fun-filled celebration was a first—and will go down as one of the most memorable events held in the school.

 

Miguel will be part of the “Kapusong Pinoy sa L.A.” concert, organized by GMA Pinoy TV, the flagship international channel of GMA Network, in cooperation with Polaris Media and Marketing. It will be held on September 27 at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, California. The show starts at 6:30 PM. For ticket reservationsthe number to call is 310-989-4523.

GMA Network is closing in on ABS-CBN in nationwide TV ratings with stronger programming across all timeblocks in July, according to data from the industry’s leading ratings service provider, Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.

 

For the period July 1 to 31 (with the dates of July 27 to 31 based on overnight data), GMA significantly reduced ABS-CBN’s lead in NUTAM (National Urban Television Audience Measurement) to just 0.5 percent with its 33.4 percent total day household audience share, and outscored TV5’s 11.5 percent by 21.9 points.

 

GMA grabbed the lead in the morning timeblock as it recorded a 32.4 percent audience share, outscoring ABS-CBN’s 29.1 percent by 3.3 points and TV5’s 12.4 percent by 20 points. Moreover, GMA more than tripled its lead in the afternoon block in July with 5.6 points relative to June’s 1.6 points, with a 35.4 percent audience share as against ABS-CBN’s 29.8; it also led TV5’s 12 percent by 23.4 points. GMA likewise improved its shares in the evening block to 32.3 percent from the previous month’s 31 percent.

 

Furthermore, GMA maintained its strong performance in Urban Luzon and Mega Manila with much wider margins over rival networks across all dayparts including the much contested primetime block. Urban Luzon and Mega Manila account for 77 and 60 percent of all urban TV households in the country.

 

GMA reigned supreme in Urban Luzon with a 36.9 percent total day audience share, ahead of ABS-CBN’s 29.9 percent by 7 points, and TV5’s 10.8 percent by 26.1 points.

 

The Kapuso Network also remained unrivaled in Mega Manila with a 38 percent total day audience share, outperforming ABS-CBN’s 27.8 percent by 10.2 points and TV5’s 11.4 percent by 26.6 points.

Among the shows that scored top ratings in the two areas are Magpakailanman, Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, GMA Blockbusters, Niño, My Destiny and 24 Oras.

 

Magpakailanman, the weekly drama anthology hosted by esteemed broadcaster and GMA News pillar Mel Tiangco, led all Kapuso shows in the NUTAM, Urban Luzon and Mega Manila lists; while securing the top spot in Mega Manila.

 

GMA subscribes to the Nielsen TV Audience Measurement service, while ABS-CBN is the lone local major TV network that subscribes to Kantar Media, formerly known as TNS.

 

Nielsen data is gathered through a greater number of sampled homes nationwide in comparison to Kantar Media.
