Several Pinoy artists will be joining a live online concert alongside several Asian artists on May 27 as a charity event in fighting against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Morisette, Christian Bautista, Rico Blanco, Ranz and Niana, and MNL48 (as part of the AKB48 Group) will be the Philippines’ representatives to the “One Love Asia” online charity concert. They will be joining known Asian artists such as Choi Siwon (Super Junior), Jeong Eunji (APINK), Sam Tsui, Morning Musume, and Namewee, among many others. Artists in the concert will come from twelve different Asian countries (Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore, China, and India).
In an announcement thread posted on Twitter, MNL48 explained that the online concert, presented by WebTV Asia and YouTube, will air for over four hours “with a message to prevent new coronavirus infection with gratitude” to front liners, especially medical practitioners. All of the income from this concert will be donated to UNICEF.
