She’ll be live on the Bayanihan Musikan Facebook page at 10 pm and will be preceded by Albert Tiu (6 pm), Rachelle Gerodias-Park and Byeong In Park (7 pm), Dio Saraza (8 pm), and Victor Santiago Asuncion (9 pm).

“As the pandemic threatens to affect the most vulnerable Filipinos, the digital concert, streamed live on Facebook, represents quick citizen response to catastrophe. The project creates an opportunity for ordinary Filipinos to be at the forefront of efforts to help their kapwa-taumbayan find the strength to survive, and hopefully best, the lethal impact of the pandemic,” the team behind Bayanihan Musikahan writes.

The initiative was started by Ryan Cayabyab, Trina Belamide, Dan Songco, Jay Adlao Block, and Marian Pastor Roces in partnership with Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSB).
