/ 03:08 PM November 11, 2015

Presidential sister and actress Kris Aquino has sprinkled a dash of star power in the luncheon which will be hosted for the spouses of the 21 leaders of Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) member economies when they come to Manila next week for the 2015 Apec Summit.

Kris, the youngest of the Aquino sisters, revealed on Instagram that she tapped the help of Derek Ramsay and Matteo Guidicelli to co-host a 20-minute program during the luncheon.

“Truth: when Ate text me while we were on vacation, string quartet ang entertainment. So she said baka pwede kong pakiusapan si @ramsayderek11 to cohost the short program w/ me & is it possible for Derek to sing even if lip sync para may konting excitement naman?”

“I said: Ate, let me please make some calls, kaya ‘to. There were other artists in our short list, but DFA was very strict that the program should only be 20 minutes, so nakakahiya if not everybody will get their moment,” she said.

Kris also asked singers Ogie Alcasid, Erik Santos, and Angeline Quinto to perform songs during the program. She thanked them in separate posts on her Instagram account.

“THANK YOU for saying YES right away & helping us create a very memorable 20 minute musical experience for the spouses of the leaders attending APEC 2015. We are eternally grateful for your generosity in sharing your talent with us!” Kris said.

In an earlier Inquirer report, Ambassador Marciano Paynor Jr., director general of the Apec National Organizing Council, said that aside from hosting a lunch, the presidential sisters will take the Apec leaders’ spouses to a tour of Intramuros.

“They will be allowed to have their own time to go shopping,” Paynor was quoted in saying.

During the first Apec hosting of the Philippines 1996, a forum for the spouses was held. At that time, then First Lady of the United States Hillary Clinton gave the keynote speech at the Women and the Economy Forum sponsored by the National Council of Women of the Philippines.

However, no forum of the same kind will be hosted this year. AJH/CDG
