Due to a very obvious reason, concert producers Music Management International (MMI) and All Youth Channels Inc (AYC) announce the postponement of Katy Perry, Live in Manila! concert scheduled this October 3.
Set to make the concert much bigger, better and more relevant, the two companies will be transforming Katy Perry's concert into a fund raising gig scheduled on November 14, 2009 still at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.
According to Ronald Esguerra, AYC's Marketing and Communications Director, "We are currently working on foreign and local artists to join the cause. We feel that through the universal language of music, we will be able to unite and move everyone to help out." The fundraiser's net proceeds will be awarded to an agency that has actively and efficiently been deploying donations and aid to the typhoon victims. Name of agency is yet to be announced at a later date.
The concert would also be an avenue for people to drop off their donations as it houses booths specifically intended for these. Donations in kind like food, water, clothes, blankets and medicines are welcome. Everyone is encourage to bring at least one item to donate which will be deployed to victims of the tropical storm Ondoy.
