MANILA, Philippines — Several Original Pilipino Music (OPM) artists will pay tribute to former President Benigno S. Aquino III with an online program to mark the 40th day since his death.

The program, “Salamat PNoy: Alaala At Alay Ng Musikang Pinoy,” is a joint production of nongovernment organization Kaya Natin!, Radyo Katipunan, and Bayanihan Musikahan.

“Salamat Pnoy” will be livestreamed on Monday at 8 p.m. on the Facebook pages of Radyo Katipunan, Bayanihan Musikahan, and Now You Know. It will also be livestreamed on Radyo Katipunan’s Youtube channel and Twitter account.

“As a fan of OPM, it is no secret in the industry — Filipino music gave the audiophile PNoy solace, pride, and comfort amidst the many challenges that he faced in his tenure as President,” the group said in a joint statement issued on Sunday.

“Because he was so self-effacing and called so little attention to himself, few appreciated the depth and breadth of accomplishments that PNoy’s vision, courage, and conviction made possible during his presidency — awe-inspiring results on so many fronts of public service. This realization endeared him even more to the hearts of local artists,” they added.

“Salamat Pnoy” features Agot Isidro, Audie Gemora, Bituin Escalante, Boboy Garrovillo, Celeste Legaspi, Debonair District, Dingdong Dantes, Ebe Dancel, Enchong Dee, Erik Santos, Frankie Pangilinan, Gary Valenciano, Iza Calzado, John Arcilla, Mike Villegas, Mitch Valdes, Noel Cabangon, Ogie Alcasid, Radioactive Sago Project, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Ryan Cayabyab Singers, and The Company.

Jim Paredes and Leah Navarro will host the program with Paolo Valenciano as directorial consultant.
