The channel that has been the top-rating channel on total cable households nationwide for many years now staged this celebration, which featured no less than the Philippines’ best artists. They shared their music to loyal fans and supporters of Cinema One, the home of the biggest stars in the country.
Those who took the stage along with host KC Concepcion for this star-studded evening were the likes of Jed Madela, Angeline Quinto, Jovit Baldivino, and KZ Tandingan, who kicked off the show with the Cinema One anniversary theme song, “Parang Sine”/”Laging Kasama”.
This act was followed by various production numbers that latched onto various genres.
