Now it’s everybody’s turn to help them out in their time of need,” Jacqui said.

On May 2, among the performers are Rico J. Puno, Pat Castillo, Judith Banal, Jeannie Tiongco, Romy Posadas, Colby de la Calzada, Boyet Pigao. Rudy Lozano, Ulysses Avante, Ding and Tek Faustino, Richie Ramos and Emcy Corteza of Poppin’ Jazz, Ali Sotto and again, Jacqui Magno.
