MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The world’s eyes will be focused on Manila on February 25 as the metropolis plays host to a hodge-podge of public events at various venues to celebrate an impromptu world freedom day.
A few hundred people are expected to join in the commemoration of EDSA, the people’s power revolution that ousted President Ferdinand E. Marcos 31 years ago. The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines is also sponsoring a “March for Life” somewhere in Luneta Park to encourage Filipino Catholics to make a stand against abortion and the reinstatement of the death penalty. Fans of AlDub will also gather in Quezon City to reclaim what seems to be the sagging popularity of their favorite noontime show love team. The Mocha Girls may also make the rounds of Metro Manila malls to greet and entertain their fans.
But the biggest buzz thus far is that a internationally-famous Grammy Award-winning singer has agreed to stage a free concert at an undisclosed venue just outside of Metro Manila. This singer is known to have very close ties to the Philippines and is doing the free concert in celebration of his (or her) Filipino heritage and love for Filipino musical talent.
The musical concert details will be announced on national television and on social media on the eve of February 25. The free admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
So keep your appointment calendar open on February 25 and be on the lookout for this exciting announcement! It’s the “Next Big One” you won’t wanna miss!
