David Pomeranz to hold concert for Yolanda victims
MANILA, Philippines – American Grammy-award winning singer and song writer David Pomeranz will be holding a free benefit concert at the Rizal Open Air Auditorium on Friday December 6 at 7 pm.
During the press conference at the Hub restaurant, the Operation Smile Ambassador said he is set to sing 11 songs from his newly released album entitled "David Pomeranz Now and Forever," among them hits "Now and Forever" by Air Supply, "I'll Be Over You" by Toto, and many more.
The 62-year-old lyricist reiterated that he waived his talent fee for the concert and allotted ticket proceeds to the victims of typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).
"I wanted to go to the place (Tacloban, Samar, Iloilo and Capiz) to see the victims and if possible hold a concert for them," he said.
Pomeranz also said he wanted proceeds to be spent in buying fishing boats, seeds, foods and the rebuilding of damaged classrooms under the project "Bagong Kabisayaan" (New Visayas).
The free concert is also made possible by the National Parks Development Committee.
On December 3, Pomeranz was seen riding a kalesa (horse-drawn carriage) and interacting with Pinoys in Luneta Park in Manila.
His songs include "Got to Believe" and "King and Queen of Hearts."
