Pro-Aquino groups to hold ‘Rock the Vote’ concerts for Team PNoy bets

By

MANILA, Philippines — Civil society groups allied with President Benigno Aquino are rolling out the “big guns” from the entertainment industry in its final push for Team PNoy candidates a few days before Election Day.

The Yellow Ribbon Movement (YRM) and People Power Volunteers for Reform (PPVR) have tapped President Aquino’s sister and top TV personality Kris Aquino, movie star Sharon Cuneta, wife of Senator Francis Pangilinan, and Dingdong Dantes for its four-day, four-province “Rock the Vote.”

In a statement, the YRM and PPRV said:  “We will once more rock the vote to renew our  support for President Noynoy Aquino’s ‘Daang Matuwid,’ for the reforms that are now paving the way for the Philippines to take off, and for the Team PNoy slate, especially Benigno Bam Aquino and Risa Hontiveros. We are coming together to continue pushing for reforms of the Aquino administration and end poverty.”

The Rock the Vote concerts will be held in Dagupan, Pangasinan (May 6), Davao City (May 7), Batangas City (May 8), and Cebu City (May 9).

The organizers will also launch a “Tie a Yellow Ribbon campaign” during the final week before May 13.

Other artists who have signed up to the concert series are Cooky Chua, Ebe Dancel, Gloc9, Parokya ni Edgar, Christian Bautista, Ogie Alcasid, Noel Cabangon and Jim Paredes.

Aside from the Rock the Vote series, Kris Aquino has also agreed to join Team PNoy bet Senator Francis Escudero in his southern Philippine sorties this week.
