REY VALERA is one of the most celebrated hitmakers in the history of Original Pilipino Music or OPM.
Many of his compositions, which he also sang as a vocalist, have enjoyed revival after revival because younger artists sing their own versions — and his songs have become some of the most successful teleserye titles and theme songs ever.
And who among many of us can't keep up with the national anthems of our generation?
"Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko"
"Maging Sino Ka Man"
"Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo"
"Kung Kailangan Mo Ako"… and so many others.
But many of us don't know what Rey went through in her life and career.
“Minsan kong iniwan ang karera ko ng maraming taon kahit napaka-successful ko na noon. Dahil sa isang impostor na nagpapanggap na siya si Rey Valera, napagkakamalan akong magnanakaw, rapist, kriminal.
"Kaya kinailangan ko munang mawala…”, narrates Rey to a shocked Korina Sanchez-Roxas.
But how did he solve the problem and how did he get back to rise so high again?
