So excited to perform for the Pinoy Benefit Concert at Madison Square Garden Theater with Jennifer Hudson and A Great Big World!

Created in 2013 in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, Pinoy Relief was formed to generate awareness, raise funds and create sustainable recovery programs for the victims and communities affected by this devastating natural disaster. The focus of our organization is to bring the power of a global community (aggregated resources, crisis expertise, and awareness) to help the masses in need at a local level. We aim to stabilize affected communities by providing resources, life necessities, temporary facilities and tools to farmers, fishermen, small businesses, teachers, doctors, individuals and families.

Doors open at 6:30 with the show starting at 7:30 ET.
