Rebuild! The benefit concert for the Philippines included performances from Will I. Am, Apl.de.ap, and Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, Jazmin Sisters, Jabbawockeez, Le McFall, Dub FX, Yardnoise, Chris Hayzel, AJ Rafael, Philippine Chamber Singers, W3TheFutute, The Filharmonic, DJ Mia, Dj Ammo, Dj Poet, Q-Bert, The Little Ones, Slapshock, and comedians Ron Josol and Joey Guila. The event has hosted by news anchor Cher Calvin, actor Mark Dacascos, and actress Nia Peeples. The benefit, put together by Apl helps those were affected by Typhoon Haiyan. The Black Eyed Peas performed “Boom Boom Pow,’ “I Gotta Feeling” “Let’s Get It Started,” and “Pump It,” As well as a solo song from Apl and another from Taboo. The event started with a red carpet at 5pm and the concert at 6:30 which lasted 5 hours. Due to the amount of performers, most were limited to 10-15 minutes while the Black Eyed Peas headlining set was around 45 minutes. “The concert was sponsored by Philippine based SMART Communications who has launched HELP.PH, a text-to-donate campaign in several countries around the world to continue awareness and raise funds for the rebuild effort. Apl.de.ap has been appointed the international ambassador of the HELP.PH campaign. The proceeds of the concert will be dispersed by the ADAF to several projects and NGOs based in the Philippines who are doing direct work to help the survivors of the devastation, in particular, a special PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) program targeted at children and teachers in Tacloban and surrounding areas.” (From Press Release)
