All donations collected from the online show will be given to UNICEF to support its efforts against the spread of the coronavirus, as per a statement on the event’s website. The amount will also help the organization’s initiatives to “prevent the pandemic from becoming a lasting crisis for vulnerable children.”
Along with the Filipino singers, local dancers Ranz Kyle and Niana Guerrero, and Choi Siwon of the K-pop boy band Super Junior, will also be performing at the concert.
The upcoming benefit concert is part of UNICEF’s larger global campaign “#Reimagine” which provides children and their families with soaps, gloves, face masks and access to clean water. Donations also fund medicine, food and vaccines for communities in need. JB
