Inspiring words and admiration for their courage and resilience will be shared by GMA Network’s award-winning primetime news anchors Mel Tiangco and Mike Enriquez together with Kapuso primetime royalties Richard Gutierrez, Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera.
The audience were surely in for a heartwarming treat when the country’s premiere artists led by Regine together with Jaya, Kuh Ledesma, Pops Fernandez, JayR, Kyla and La Diva perform as they unfold heartbreaking stories about losing loved ones, inspiring stories of unsung heroes and stories of love, survival, hope, happy endings and gratitude.
