ABS-CBN’s music portal, One Music, is set to organize a musical event which “aims to raise awareness on climate change” on July 27 at the La Mesa Ecopark in Quezon City. The concert will feature singers Maris Racal, Sam Mangubat, and AC Bonifacio.
“It’s part of [our network’s] values to come up with events not only to entertain people but to have advocacy… [the concert] is a movement that harnesses the power of music,” Mercy Joy Mesina, editor-in-chief of One Music, told BusinessWorld during the launch on July 7 at the ABS-CBN offices in Quezon City.
Titled One Paradise Puno ng Musika: A Tree Planting Gig, this is an acoustic concert coupled with a tree-planting session to “inspire the youth to protect Metro Manila’s last remaining forest: the La Mesa Watershed,” said a press release.
This is the third leg of the One Paradise concert series which started in 2017 during the Labor Day weekend celebrations in La Union. Coming off of the success of the second staging, Ms. Mesina said that they decided to hold the concert within Metro Manila.
Tickets are priced at P650 and include a shirt and a tree seedling planted in the ticket buyer’s name. Tickets are available at ktx.abs-cbn.com. — ZBC
