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.

    malaking karga sa boto ito ng LP….. mabuhay ang Pinoy….Mabuhay PILIPINAS….kahit sino manalo sa mga kandidato sana panatiliing palagi ang KAPAYAPAAN….

    Pinoy team supporters should vote the complete slate of 12 TP candidates. If supporters simply elect their favorite 9 or 8 candidates, they are effectively providing Nancy Binay a “passive vote”. This is the reason why Nancy is showing up in the magic 12.

    Some independent senatorial candidates are also very credible candidates, but they have very slim chances to figure in the top 12…. A vote for any of these independents will also inure to the benefit of UNA’s top contenders….

    gloc-9 is not in any way part of the show, the rock the vote group inquired and informed gloc’s management that its a show for the youth to vote wisely however, we read this article posted last night so negotiations with them will not push through. you may check gloc-9’s page stating that he is not part of this show. he cant be part of any political or campaign shows because he is part of the election advocacy of gma7 Dapat Tama. For clarifications you may email his management at thea@glocdash9.com thank you.

  • disqusted0fu

    Finally, team pnoy sorties will be filled with people because of these big time celebs. For a while the public got tired of Pnoy’s speeches in every single sortie of team pnoy. Even the candidates themselves could not take it anymore and chose not to join in most of their sorties. It was the same old promises, same old bragging and badmouthing that no one but Pnoy was happy about. That’s why it’s called team pnoy because it’s a one man team.
