Remember Patti Austin‘s recent concert here in the Philippines just a couple of months ago? I most certainly do! I actually had the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with her during her practice session (you can read all about it and watch the video by clicking here).
Pinoys love songs that really touch the heart and I guess that’s one of the many reasons why we all love Patti as well.
If you’re one of the countless Patti Austin fans here in the Philippines, you should get excited because she is coming back THIS MONTH to do not one, but TWO benefit concerts to help victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).
The first benefit concert will feature Patti Austin, together with Martin Nievera, Lea Salonga and Richard Merk. It is entitled “Brand New Day: A Holiday Concert” and will be held at the Solaire Resort & Casino in Parañaque, Philippines on December 29th.
The second benefit event will be a dinner show called “One Heart One Voice”, with special guests Richard Merk, Emcy Corteza and Sticky Band, which will take place on New Year’s Eve, December 31st at Fairmont Raffles Makati.
Together with Habitat for Humanity, the concerts aim to raise funds to rebuild homes for Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) victims.
I am really looking forward to these concerts. If you missed Patti Austin’s last trip to the Philippines a few months back, then this is most definitely the best Christmas treat you could give yourself. Not only that, you also get to help the countless Filipinos in Visayas who are still trying to rebuild their lives which have been gravely devastated by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).
I encourage you to be a part of these events. Patti’s songs are timeless classics. You won’t regret watching her perform her popular hits on stage. Her voice is as amaaaaaazing as ever. I’ll see you all there.
