A concert has been launched featuring celebrities who are supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Led by Jimmy Bondoc, the DDS artists want to sing for the President after they feel his exhaustion amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The concert is titled “Singing for the President,” and will be held on August 30 starting 2 p.m.
Through a Facebook video via NDM Studios, Bondoc invited the President to join and watch them gather to serenade him.
“Mahal naming Pangulong Duterte, gusto po namin kayo anyayahang panoorin ang aming online concert para sa inyo. We just want to sing for you,” Bondoc said.
He continued that they feel hurt seeing the exhaustion on Duterte. Bondoc said they want Duterte to reminsce “just like the good old days.”
“To be honest, you look very tired. Kami po ay nasasaktan para sa inyo, so we want to sing for you, just like the good old days. Dahil alam namin ‘pag Sunday, kahit paano, baka kayo po ay nagpapahinga sa bahay,” he added.
The group, called Volunteer Artists for Duterte, will perform alongside artists like Freddie Aguilar, Dulce, Chad Borja, Mocha Uson, Njel de Mesa, Paolo Santos, Thor Dulay, Arnell Ignacio and Moymoy Palaboy.
Bondoc also urged his fellow “ka-DDS” to support and watch their concert online.
“Kantahan naman natin si Pangulo. He looks very tired. And I think kahit paano, we can serve him, and serve the country in our small way through music, and to bring peace and love again to social media,” Bondoc said.
