the concert king MARTIN NIEVERA celebrates his 30th anniversary on asap
Three decades 30 years
Filled with laughter a gazillion tears
How does one measure
In what way do I count
The love and passion
For its not the applause that brought me here
It's the living without it
that I fear
Every song I sing everyday
Inspired by you in every way
The journey is possible when we're together
Hold my hand walk softly to forever
Everything I do-every dream come true
I am what I am because of you...
Martin to Pops: 'It was still all about you'

MANILA, Philippines – Martin Nievera, dubbed as the Philippine music industry’s "Concert King," turned emotional during a production number on “ASAP 2012” on Sunday.
Nievera is celebrating his 30 years in the business and he was serenaded by his “ASAP” co-stars.
But what brought Nievera to tears was when he sang Roberta Flack and Peabo Bryson’s “Maybe” with former wife Pops Fernandez, who were then joined by their two sons, Robin and Ram, much to Nievera’s surprise.
Nievera, who was obviously moved when he saw his sons, cried unabashedly and hugged Robin almost throughout their song.
Fernandez said she was surprised over Nievera’s reaction because she rarely sees her former husband cry on television.
“I got scared. This is the first time I’ve seen you cry. I don’t know what to say. I’ve seen you cry a lot of times in front of me [but] not in front of them,” she said.
She then wished Nievera a happy 30th anniversary and wished him more years in the music industry.
Nievera’s sons Robin and Ram also congratulated their father for his showbniz success.
“I’ve started singing 3 years ago, and I’m already having such a hard time. I don’t know how you’re doing it at 30. It’s different with you because you get better every year. He doesn’t look 50, he doesn’t sound 50 and he still sings better than I do. So congratulations Dad, I love you,” said Robin.
“Thirty years is big, I can’t even imagine it myself because it’s not the career I chose. I can’t even feel the way that you feel right now. I’m really happy for you,” Ram said.
Meanwhile, Nievera explained to Fernandez why he was not able to stop his tears.
“All the good and the bad years were with you. Even when you’re not with me, it was still all about you and this family. You learn from your mistakes. You move on, you grow up but the one thing I can safely say is that in my 30 years in the business, this was my biggest achievement right here (family),” he said.
