This December, GMA Network leads the Filipinos in bringing a meaningful Christmas to the victims of the recent typhoons that hit the country with the telecast of a special musical documentary concert featuring the Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez. Titled After the Rain: A Hopeful Christmas with Regine, this TV special will be aired on December 13 on the Sunday Night Box-Office (SNBO) timeslot.
This year’s GMA Christmas special pays homage to the Filipino spirit that has remained resilient despite the seemingly unending odds brought by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng, which tremendously shattered lives and properties of many Filipinos.
After The Rain: A Hopeful Christmas with Regine is a two-hour musical-documentary featuring three heartwarming and inspiring Ondoy stories. The concert was attended by almost 800 victims from the typhoon-devastated cities and provinces such as Rizal, Laguna, Pasig, Marikina and Pangasinan. They were fetched from evacuation centers and transported to GMA Network’s Studio 7 for a special dinner party before the show.
Inspiring words and admiration for their courage and resilience will be shared by GMA Network’s primetime news anchors Mel Tiangco and Mike Enriquez together with Kapuso stars Richard Gutierrez, Dingdong Dantes, and Marian Rivera.
The audience will be in for a heartwarming treat when the country’s premiere artists led by Regine together with Jaya, Kuh Ledesma, Pops Fernandez, JayR, Kyla and La Diva plus the UP Concert Chorus perform as they unfold heartbreaking stories about losing loved ones, inspiring stories of unsung heroes and stories of love, survival, hope, happy endings and gratitude.
Completing the performers in this Christmas special are Eva Castillo, Frenchesca Farr, Julie Ann San Jose, Mae Flores, Moymoy Palaboy, Jude Matthew Sevilla, Shane Velasco, Yassi, Kris Angelica dela Cruz, Kiddiewockees, University of the Philippines Concert Chorus, Mandaluyong Children’s Choir and the IIAF Development Group.
And at the end of the show, the audience will receive their special Christmas presents with the help of some sponsors and the GMA Kapuso Foundation.
