Vhong Navarro and Ogie Alcasid kicked off “It’s Showtime’s It’s Sharetime” last Thursday (March 10) to continue ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN Foundation’s 100-day fundraising drive for the victims of Super Typhoon Odette. The 10-day fund-raising campaign of “It’s Showtime” hosts comes after the successful finale of “Kapamilya Family Date Nights” last Wednesday (March 9) with “MMK” and “Viral Scandal” stars who were able to raise almost P1.4 million, as they also marked the 30th anniversary of “MMK.”
Vhong and Ogie opened the show’s fundraising campaign as they performed the “Gaya Gaya G,” wherein they reenacted scenes from “My Ex and Whys,” “Paano Na Kaya,” and “Paano Kita Iibigin” with a twist. They also translated each other’s songs from English to Filipino, making the viewers feel like they were in a comedy bar.
“Thank you all for the time you spent for us tonight. We are not doing this for us but for the victims of Typhoon Odette,” Vhong said.
Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid also joined in the fun and entertained the viewers as she danced “Boom Shakalaka” and sang a duet with her husband.
Meanwhile, “MMK” host Charo Santos thanked the viewers and donors for their generosity as well as the stars led by The Star For All Seasons Vilma Santos-Recto, Pia Wurtzbach, Dimples Romana, Janine Gutierrez, Karina Bautista, and Aljon Mendozawho shared their time and support for their campaign, which is for the home repair kits of Odette victims.
In the succeeding nights, it will be the turn of other “It’s Showtime” hosts, Kim Chiu, Amy Perez, Karylle, Ryan Bang, Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, Ion Perez, and Jackie Gonzaga to entertain the madlang pipol and inspire them to help our kababayans rebuild their homes and their lives. They will be joined by “TNT” hurados Yeng Constantino, Nyoy Volante, Jed Madela, Louie Ocampo, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Janice de Belen, “TNT” champions and Polaris artists.
