Vice Ganda brings joy

By Carla Gomez

 

Box office star Vice Ganda staged a three-hour concert filled with nonstop laughter and music before a c rowd of about 6,000 at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum in Bacolod City Sunday night.

 

The performer sang to an appreciative and cheering crowd, and stopped for selfies with the audience without missing a beat.

 

The “Vice Gandang Ganda Sa Sarili sa Bacolod!” was staged for the benefit of Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc., a non-profit organization that provides disadvantaged children with shelter, food, healthcare and education.

 

Anna Balcells, Kalipay founder and president, said she did not realize that Vice Ganda, aside from being a comedian, also has a beautiful voice. She said the songs he sang were geared towards inspiring people to believe in their selves.

 

Before the show, Vice Ganda asked to meet with the people behind Kalipay, its volunteers and children.

 

He was very loving, cool and kind to the children, and showed that he really cared, Balcells said.

 

Balcells said they are thankful to the comedian for being a truly loving and caring person.

 

Also performing with Vice Ganda were comedians MC and Lassi and performer Rayver Cruz.

 

The Negros producer of the show brought to Bacolod City by ABS-CBN, JCI, TSE Live and Valley of Peace was Mhel Sillador. *CPG
