“Nothing but good vibes. We are holding the show on the date of the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While we will remember the day of infamy and do not forget those who died, we also want to celebrate life and bring some song to a day of bereavement,” Gonzalez said in a press release.

Livestream of the event will be at 8:30pm on Saturday, September 11 (MNL time).

“If you love good music, then we invite you all to celebrate life with us on a day like September 11,” summed up Gonzalez.
