On a photo of his family at the show, JM wrote, "Nothing's gonna harm you, not while I'm around."
In a report on ABS-CBN, JM's dad Ronniel de Guzman said that the presentation that JM was involved in was directed by Fritz Ynfante.
"We are proud that JM got preoccupied with another artistic project where he displayed innate talent. A number of people in and out of showbiz have constantly been supporting JM and we are very grateful to them," said Ronniel.
JM took a break from acting at the end of 2015. He was last seen on TV in the series All of Me, and on the big screen in the movie Imbisibol.
At that time, fans grew concerned for JM after an incident involving his then-girlfriend Jessy Mendiola and actor Enrique Gil, along with other cast members of ASAP 20. JM challenged Enrique to a fight after the incident, but deleted the message. A few weeks later, Jessy confirmed that she and JM had broken up.
After the incident and the news of the breakup, JM apologized, saying he had "lost control" and that he was "going through very tough times." – Rappler.com
