Here is great news for those fans who have lately been missing pop princess Sarah G. In one of their rare appearances together, Sarah Geronimo-Guidicelli and her husband Matteo Guidicelli will be performing in the online show Padayon. Not only them. They are part of the line-up of talented recording artists who have banded together to be part of this noble project.

The coined term Padayon combines the words Pag-ibig, Damayan and Pag-ahon. This is a fund-raising project for the repair and reconstruction of churches and chapels destroyed by Typhoon Odette and also for the construction of three in one chapels. Great idea, this. Three in one chapels means those can be used as places of worship, community venues and if needed as evacuation centers.

In the spirit of charity in action, Caritas Manila and Viva Live, Inc., have joined forces to put up the Padayon online concert for Typhoon Odette victims. This will stream on Friday, March 25, at 8 to 11 in the evening. Given the list of performers who have committed their talents to this noble undertaking, this show will be one of the biggest and truly enjoyable in recent times.

Padayon features performances by the following artists: Alamat, Andre Yllana, Andrea Badinas, Angelo Garcia, Ataska, Bandang Lapis, Caleb Santos, Ethan David, Ethan Loukas, Ezro, Ferodina, Francine Garcia, Guji Lorenzana, Jean Kiley, Jehramae Trangia, Jerald Napoles, Juliana Parizcova, Katrina Velarde, Kayla Miel Camerong, Kim Molina, LITZ, Lyca Gairanod, Magnus Haven, Marielle Belleza, Mark Bautista, SB New Gen, Rob Deniel, The Juans, This Band, Thyro Alfaro, Wilbert Ross, and Yumi Lacsamana.

Padayon will also include the special participation of His Eminence Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, who is also the president of Caritas Internationalis.
