Stars grace Poe’s final rally in Tondo
MANILA, Philippines— She may be running without a political group but big stars gathered on Friday to show their support for Senator Grace Poe.
Megastar Sharon Cuneta’s appearance for the first time at Poe’s campaign was one of the highlights of Poe’s miting de avance in Tondo, Manila.
Cuneta is the wife of Senator Francis Pangilinan, who happens to be the president of opposition Liberal Party.
Pangilinan is also the campaign manager of the opposition’s senatorial ticket in the May 13 elections.
“Ang Probinsyano’s” lead actor Coco Martin also joined the rally to throw his full support for Poe.
Martin performed a number of songs, and was even joined by Poe when he belted out the popular song “Buwan.”
Poe’s mom, veteran actress Susan Roces; her husband, Neil, and their three children, also came in full force.
Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, who is part of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), was also in attendance.
NPC has endorsed Poe’s reelection bid. (Editor: Abe Cerojano)
