Jericho “Echo” Vibar Rosales is an award-winning entertainment icon. Undoubtedly, Echo’s outstanding talent has secured him an impressive portfolio of roles both on TV and film in a variety of genres, spanning over 20 years in show business.
When not in front of the camera, Echo is a singer, songwriter, and performer to name a few, with three solo albums to his credit.
Currently, the 39-year-old actor stars as Lino Bartolome in the hit ABS-CBN primetime soap, Halik, alongside Yam Concepcion, Sam Milby, and Yen Santos.
Despite his huge success in his chosen path, Echo has proved his humility. Just recently, the Kapamilya actor has earned praises from thousands of netizens on social media after a sweet gesture he has done for a fan who asked for a photo with him.
Dennish Dianne Adriano, a worker at California Pizza Kitchen, posted on her Facebook account a picture of her and Jericho Rosales, while sharing the sweet and touching story behind the said photo.
According to Adriano, upon spotting Echo walking around Edsa Shangri-La, she called his attention. As an avid fan, she naturally asked for a photo with the actor but was initially turned down, saying he was looking for a certain store at the mall.
Dismayed, Adriano thought that Echo was a snob and went on with her usual work. But much to her surprise, the actor came back for her, saying: “Tara na, ate! Picture na tayo.”
An overwhelming number of comments has poured in under the said post as netizens commended Echo for going out of his way to grant the simple request of his fan.
The said photo has immediately gone viral, garnering over 346,000 reactions and 30,000 shares on the social media platform.
With fame almost inevitably getting the better out of people, it’s a breath of fresh air to see someone as famous as Echo keeping his feet on the ground. After all, the fans are the ones who essentially made their careers what it is today.
