The sold-out fundraising concert gathered more than 100 Kapamilya stars who prepared special production numbers. Among the highlights of the show were the inspiring song numbers of Kapamilya singers including Lea Salonga, Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Lani Misalucha, Sarah Geronimo and Angeline Quinto; breathtaking romantic serenades of ‘Kapamilya Heartthrobs’ led by Piolo Pascual, Coco Martin and John Lloyd Cruz; surprise numbers of Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda; and The Beatles’ medley of a band from Tacloban that got everyone at the Araneta Coliseum off their seats and earned the only standing ovation of the night. The concert also featured never-before-seen touching stories of calamity survivors and volunteers.
The proceeds of the ‘Kwento ng Pasko’ solidarity concert will be donated to the Sagip Kapamilya calamity fund of ABS-CBN Foundation that continues to help rebuilding the lives of survivors from various calamity-stricken areas in the country
